Read in January, 2009

This is the first Steve Berry book I've read.

My biggest problem with the book was the characters. There is obviously some history between the characters and I guess if I read the previous books by Steve Berry then I already know the characters. However, in this book there wasn't really any character development so I never really got to know the characters. In fact for a novice to Steve Berry there were too many characters and I felt the book could have less characters but spent more time expanding the characters.

I did however get drawn into the plot about Alexander the Great. I also thought the idea of Central Asian Federation wanting to expand its influence was very good.

Overall I wouldn't recommend the book to anybody new to Steve Berry, but for regulars of his it is probably much better.
