You will be disappointed
Whew, am I glad to have finished this series. The first book was interesting, the second OK and the third just a repeat of the first two but in different places. The whole series left me with a feeling of why did he do it and why are all those men just following him? How futile is war and why should one person have so much power over others and so much wealth. If he wants to conquer the world get on with it but leave us alone. Technically the book repeats itself a lot, giving lists of names over and over again. The battle scenes are poorly described, they just start and finish. There is no sense of the passage of time. If a causeway is needed or some siege machines, they just get made, simple. Do not buy this book expecting any great insight into Alexander or the period, because you will be disappointed.
