Reviewer Likes My “Strong Female Characters” and “Refreshing Take” on Alexander
This was posted by a fan today!
“Military historical fiction is often all about male warriors, complex strategies, and vicious battles. There is all of that in this book, but there are also strong female characters in Throne of Darius, like the noble princess Barsine and the brave horse girl, Halime. Narrating the story from the point of view of Alexander’s opponents is a refreshing take that brings a new understanding of Alexander’s campaign without diminishing historical accuracy. There is humor, fierce battle scenes but also deeply emotional moments – everything to make Throne of Darius an enthralling read that will keep you hooked”.
