Jan 29, Brent Morrison rated it really liked it. Didn't like it quite as much as the first, but that's not unusual. Still liking the series overall. Aug 19, MpaulM rated it liked it. Picked up books one and two for basically free and I thought I would like them because of my love for ancient history.

Just not my style reading historical fiction. Back to the classics: May 07, Robin Carter rated it it was amazing Shelves: This review is from: Storm of Arrows Tyrant 2 Kineas, the Athenian cavalry commander, has come a long way since being dismissed from the army of Alexander and vengefully exiled by his own city. Far to the east, at the farthest edge of th This review is from: Far to the east, at the farthest edge of the Sea of Grass, Alexander is threatening to crush the Scythian hordes once and for all.

The Lady Srayanka of the Cruel Hands, the Scythian warrior-princess who spurned a king's love to be at Kineas's side, is pledged to take her tribe east to help stop 'the monster' -and Kineas knows he has no choice but to follow, even if it means embracing the violent death in battle that he has seen prefigured in countless dreams.

But long before he can confront the might of Alexander's army alongside his beloved Srayanka, he must undertake an epic journey, of breathtaking daring, taking an army through hundreds of miles of hostile terrain - towards his own appointment with fate. I defy anyone to read this book and not be moved by the characters contained in its pages, book 2 fills out so much of the missing background of the supporting cast, but also brings us closer to the main characters of Kineas and Srayanka, the descriptions of the sea of grass at times are almost poetic, so much so that this is not just an epic journey for Kineas, but also for the reader.

Apr 20, Jerry Bennett rated it really liked it. I read this book immediately after finishing Tyrant , and found it a really good sequel. I will definitely be reading the others in the series. It was an easy book to "visualise" with good descriptions of the landscape and the buildings in which it is set. The story never flags in any way, and the one slight downside is keeping in touch with the "second tier" of characters, some of whom tend to disappear for several chapters before re-emerging, and if you are reading the book at irregular interva I read this book immediately after finishing Tyrant , and found it a really good sequel.

The story never flags in any way, and the one slight downside is keeping in touch with the "second tier" of characters, some of whom tend to disappear for several chapters before re-emerging, and if you are reading the book at irregular intervals it is easy to forget who they were. It is a necessary part of the story though, and you can soon pick up on them again, so it is only a minor niggle. One test of a good historical novel is that it encourages me to pick up a factual history and discover more about what was really happening at that time and place.

This novel is up there with the best of them. I believe "Funeral Games" is next in the series, and I already have it on order. May 31, Venetia Green rated it really liked it. A fantastic depth of research, great characterisation, but a plot that lacks forward movement throughout most of the book. I found Tyrant quite slow going for much of the first half, mainly because of an overall lack of plot motivation, i.

Towards the end A fantastic depth of research, great characterisation, but a plot that lacks forward movement throughout most of the book. Towards the end, though, the story did become something like compulsive reading. On the positive side, Cameron's characterisation was fantastic — a huge confusing at first range of characters weave through the story, of various ethnic identities. Further,the ethic groupings themselves were vividly portrayed. The military detail too was very convincing and well described.

Jul 28, Stefan rated it it was amazing Shelves: Storm of Arrows is the second book in an excellent series of historical novels.

The Tyrant Series

Christian Cameron has made good use of details, mental imagery, narrative, dialogue, plot, and setting to vividly bring to life the ancient world of Alexander the Great and his empire. This story continues where Tyrant left off, and is in a number of ways, better then its predecessor. Storm of Arrows is a powerful, exciting, and fascinating epic tale because the author writes in such a readable and engaging m Tyrant: Storm of Arrows is a powerful, exciting, and fascinating epic tale because the author writes in such a readable and engaging manner.

The author raises some good points about Alexander the Great and the ancient world at that time. I also found I number of things about the lifestyle and culture of the ancient world, because of how Cameron tried to base his fictional story on historical fact. Apr 17, Ron Decaigny rated it it was amazing. In my opinion there are a few great Historical fiction series that really tie you up in the times and characters being portrayed, Cornwalls Aurthirian trilogy, Gemmells Troy trilogy come to mind.

Camerons Tyrant series easily ranks with these. No stereotyped characters to be found here, everyone is well drawn with a complete individual personality. I really like these people. I am usually put off by fantasy but the use of "the dream tree" worked for me as well.

Scythian, Alexander, march, epic, courage. Great writing, great pace, great plot but, oh boy, I really did not like the ending! He is half god and half monster. I would like to stop playing the endless game of betrayal and politics and advantage for power and influence in the army.

Tyrant: Storm of Arrows

I would like to build something. Feb 15, Liam rated it really liked it. I don't know what it is about historical fiction but nothing drives me to read it, but once I get started I really enjoy it. I've picked up two of Christian's books now and they are fantastic. The level of detail is amazing with out getting bogged down in a Homeric description of tabards and spears. If you're a bit on the fence about historical fiction pick up one of the Tyrant series and get in 25 pages. Great Story This book has everything ,characters that are exciting and full of life.
