Dark Prince (Greek Series, #2)
Peter Carlisle's review
May 01, 2008
This was the sequel to Gemmell's Lion of Macedon, and it veers much more into the fantasy than the historical fiction of the first book, which initially, I was a little skeptical about. However, Gemmell pulled it off wonderfully, incorporating and expanding on elements of Greek mythology. The two books comprise an interesting interpretation of Alexander the Great. Like in his Troy series, Gemmell focuses more on the 'minor characters' that surrounded Alexander rather than Alexander himself. The main character is Parmenion, one of Alexander's generals and a wonderful and complex protagonist. I would highly recommend this series to anyone who likes historical fiction, especially when mixed with elements of fantasy.
