A disappointing end to a very good series,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Carrhae (Parthian Chronicles Book 4) (Kindle Edition)
I have really enjoyed the series but for me this book had all the signs of a rushed lazy effort. The pace is frantic from the offset and whilst that is normally something I enjoy in a book, here I just felt that the author was trying to cram too much in. Much of the language, especially when describing the battles is repetitive and seemingly written without any feeling or emotion - I almost question whether it's the same author at the beginning of the book.
I was also frustrated by the poor editing and grammar with this book. A change in the storyline should see a new paragraph or chapter, but there are changes midway through a paragraph. Or a new chapter starts which is just a continuation of the previous sentence/storyline you had just read. Overall the book just felt rushed and hurried, a brain dump of words onto paper, which is a shame as the others had not been like that.
The ending of the story maybe a little too sentimental or plain silly for some, however I enjoyed it and it gives a real perspective of what it must be like for ageing warriors and generals to feel. Nowhere near being a great book for me, on its own its poor in parts but overall I very much enjoyed the series and would recommend them.
