* I received an ecopy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review *

When I was contacted about reading this book i was very excited since I loved the world created in book 1 full of characters to love and hate. I was a little worried I would forget things since the cast of characters is large, but it was written in a way that gave me new information while also reminding me a little of the things from the past so there was no need to worry, I caught on right away and was hooked u

I loved EVERYTHING about this sequel! It is one of my favorite books of 2017. The characters are so rich and layered. I adore Achilles. He always put a smile on my face and I enjoyed hating Agamemnon. Clytemnestra continues to pull at my heart strings and I want her to get her revenge. My favorite new character was Briseis who is likable and strong. She finds herself in a difficult position and I liked watching the relationship grow and change between her and Achilles. But there are many other c ...more

Beautifully written epic tale of history and mythology. I felt as though I was walking amongst the pages straight into Greece to face the Trojan skyscrapers and discover the Forgotten Prince. Two enthusiastic thumbs up!

I can not say enough good things about this book. Janell Rhiannon's telling of the Homeric Chronicles is amazing. Her characters are rich with details and emotions that pull you into their lives. Clytemnestra is my favorite. I cried with her, got angry when she did and felt the love she has for her children. Achilles has a well earned ego bigger than the Trojan horse, but a heart that is tender for those he loves.
Janell Rhiannon kills it with this series. It's one I highly recommend. 5 stars!

Once again a beautifully written story with a beautiful flow to it! These characters are so relatable in so many ways. No matter what they do, you understand where they're coming from because that is the depth in how they're written. Even when they do something atrocious and you want to hate them you just cannot do it. From the get go the book gets your emotions flowing, whether it's sadness, happiness, incredulity, and everything else in between, you'll find it here. Lovers of history and mytho ...more

After enjoying the first book in the Homeric Chronicles “Song of Princes”, I was really looking forward to reading its follow-up. Was I disappointed? I am very happy to say that I wasn’t. Not by a long shot.

I cannot praise Ms. Rhiannon’s talent enough. She’s a phenomenal writer and storyteller. “Rise of Princes” is just as engaging as its predecessor. Maybe even more so! We are deep into the Trojan war now, and the book is action packed. I really appreciated the honest depiction of war. Atrocit

A really solid continuation and another enjoyable return to the world of Troy; as a diehard lover of Greek mythology, I always take pleasure in reading Janell Rhiannon's version of the tales. What I especially love about Rhiannon's work is the fact I find myself learning so much about a world I already thought I knew extensively and I truly appreciate the intricate interweaving of all the overlapping stories in the Troy saga. While, true to the longevity of the actual conflict, this war is strin ...more

Another Great Installment Of The Homeric Chronicles!!!

First I want to start of by saying I was given a copy of this book the author for my true and honest opinion. Janell Rhiannon has out done herself yet again. Rise Of Princes is just as page turning as it's first installment. Deep into the Trojan war now, there is so much action. The battle scenes are intense the story pace is fastand exciting. Can't wait to get my hands on the third installment.
