This is the fourth book in the Time for Alexander Series continuing the story of the time-traveling journalist Ashley, who traveled back almost 3000 years to interview Alexander the Great.

She has travelled with him and his army as he conquered nations, founded new cities and set them up in the Greek democratic way.

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

Storms over Babylon by Jennifer Macaire is the fourth book in the Time for Alexander series. The story continues from where it was left off previously and gives us a detailed view of the conqueror’s life, through Ashley’s point of view.

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

Alexander and his army have left India and have headed west to Persia. The fighting is over. The whole City of Babylon turns out to greet Alexander, conquering hero and kind of the world. And Alexander’s wife is also recognized. “My Lady Persephone, Queen of Hades, Ashley of the Sacred Sandals, Demeter’s Daughter, welcome to Babylon.”

And next Spring, Alexander will die.

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.

This is the fourth book in the Time for Alexander series, and if you still haven't read any, then you have some serious catching up to do. I'm not kidding, this series gets better with each new book.

I knew that this book dealt with Alexander's death, and while I so wanted to read the story, I didn't want to say goodbye to him yet.

But, back to the story, Alexander and Ashley head back to Babylon, The journey is torturous, the heat of the desert kills many, but so do the raging floods that hamper

I swear I become more and more obsessed with this series with every book I read. Please hurry up and let me read the next three!

I chose to stay up on my flight to Brisbane to read this one instead of sleeping. To put this into context, I normally go to bed about 9pm and my flight took off at 9.30pm. To say I was dead tired when we arrived in Brisbane a couple of hours later is an understatement.

But I did smash out like 90% of the book in that couple of hours on the plane. And man was it good! I

I was really pleased to read the next installment in the The Time for Alexander series. You can read this as a standalone but I advise you to read, The Road to Alexander Legends of Persia Son of the Moon the first three books in the series first.

As with the other books in the series, it is well written and you can tell that the author has done a lot of research into the period.

In this book Ashley knows that time is running out for her and Alexander’s time together. She knows the exact date of hi
