This is another amazing installment in the Time For Alexander Series, full of adventure, drama, and exotic ancient settings.
One would get more out of Storms over Babylon if they had read the earlier books in the series, but this story is understandable without them. The complicated romantic relationships might be a little hard to understand though, if this is the first book in the series read.

Ashley, the time traveler who has gone back thousands of years and has married Alexander the Great, and

How can a book be so funny, sad, interesting, and historical? I think this is my favorite so far in the series (I say that every time). In this book, Alexander has reached Babylon and is now king of Greece, Macedonia, and Perisa. But life as an absolute ruler is not what it's cracked up to be. Alexander as uited East and West - but holding them together isn't easy. Too many different people, customs, and faction. Told from his time-traveling wife's point of view, Ashley of the Sacred Sandals, wh ...more

An intriguing time-travel novel set in the time of Alexander the Great. For fans of this time period and setting, this must-read adventure is a great summer pastime as the main character, Ashley, travels back in time to meet up with the man himself, Alexander, and is mistaken for the goddess Persephone. If you love the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon, then take a journey with Jennifer Macaire into ancient Greece where her MC entangles herself in history, literally.

The Time for Alexander series has a special place in my heart, because The Road to Alexander was one of my first historical fiction reads. I’ve been loving this series right along and was so excited to pick up Storms Over Babylon.

Love it!!! Jennifer Macaire does not disappoint and delivers another exciting adventure with Ashley and Alexander. I love the mixture of Ashley’s modern views versus the culture of the time. It makes these characters loveable and relatable.
