Filled with gripping action, the novel follows Satyrus mostly and Melitta to a much lesser extent as they take part in the epic Siege of Rhodes I am very much looking forward to the next book in the series.

I stumbled into this six book series by way of one of my favorite recent fantasy series, the Traitor Son Cycle by Miles Cameron I noticed that, for some unknown reason, Cameron also wrote under the name of Christian Cameron, and had a series set in the time of Alexander the Great.
As one who knows way too much about that Hellenistic time period, and one who loved Cameron s previous work, I was all in from the moment I started volume one, Tyrant And as this is a connected series that really needs to be read in order to be appreciated, this review is of all six books considered as a whole, rather than a review of each book though parenthetical notes will be appended for each.
The story covers about 30 years of ancient history, ending in 301 BCE at the Battle of Ipsos Now if you already know who won the Ba This astonishing book is the 5th volume of the wonderful and gripping Tyrant series.
Oncethe book has been historically very well researched and described in the historical and author s note at the end of the book, and you ll find a well defined glossary at the beginning of the book as well.
Great storytelling makes it once again an absolute joy to read this tale, simply because from start to finish this thrilling adventure keeps you spellbound and gripped throughout.
The book starts off in the year 306 BC until well into the year 305 BC, and it tells us mainly about the Siege of Rhodes by Demetrios, son of Antigonus One Eye.
Demetrios is determined to take Rhodes at all costs, and so he and his army and fleet are completely surrounding Rhodes with deadly siege engins to destroy the city.
Against him he will find Satyrus, King of the Bospor 3,5 The first two books were masterpieces, the third one I liked very much But the fourth and now the fifth one begin to change my attitude to the series This one s plot unlike the previous one was good even if the siege description was too looong But the final fight and duel, black and white presentation of some characters spoiled the impression two main characters who growwhimsical, blind and hypocrite and cause good people s deaths irritate meand .
The grain trade is central to the survival of the Kingdom of the Bosporus Satyrus goes to the aid of ally and trading partner Rhodes as Demetrius, son of Antigonus, puts the city under siege Historical fiction at its best Fantastic book Just like every other Cameron book I ve read this one earned 5 stars.
I enjoyed this penultimate entry in the Tyrant series, and the historical setting in which Satryus and Melitta live is absolutely fascinating I have enjoyed the fact that they control small Satryus and peripheral Melitta kingdoms that are caught up in the clash of empires that followed the death of Alexander the Great In particular, the siege of Rhodes provided a great backdrop to the second half of the book Satryus is still not quite a compelling character, but is definitelyinteresting and hasdepth that in earlier books in the series Like Kineas before him, he is all too aware of his flaws and mortality, and that makes him human and quite convincing It is also interesting to see him start to learn to be a king.
There were also a few things that anno the best book in the saga it s great.
