Good, but not great.,
This review is from: Tyrant (Hardcover)
After reading the Alexander trilogy I was expecting the same high standards but it never quite lived up to my expectations. The story of Dionysius and his rise to power in Sicily is facinating. He has taken a subject of some complexity and crammed it into one book. This makes the storyline feel rushed at times and the ending was disappointing due to its abruptness. Never the less, it is still an enjoyable read and worth buying. It is good, but not great and far from his best.
