the portrayal f ne f the most famous and ne A'dan Z'ye Yaşar Kemal of my favourite person historyNote I ve never heardf Zofia btw Damn the history nerd in me is so happy Daaaaaaaaaaaamn this was really good Full review to come 35This was a solid start to an epic fantasy series I can t wait to see what the rest Nacht of the series has to hold The world building was probably my favorite partf this book It was done SO WELL Reviewed by Rabid ReadsThere s a certain rivalry between English and History majors The university I attended reuired its students to attend a weekly convocation Several times a year rather than all f the students meeting formally we would have interdepartmental gatherings and nce a semester the English and History majors would stuff themselves into the largest classroom in ur main building for a coughs friendly game f College Bowl The The Collaborative Habit: Life Lessons for Working Together outcomef this game determined who got to look down their long noses at the Curse of Rocky Colavito others for the restf the semester Yes I know I m a huge nerd cantstopwontstopThe point is there s uite a bit f crossover between the two majors that gives both sides a deeper understanding f their counterparts and in the same way Herodotus in his HISTORIES ridicules Homer s accounts f historical events I m inclined to think LEGACY OF KINGS is what happens when a historian writes fantastical fictionBUTI think Herman did a far better job at bridging the gap from history to fiction than Herodotus thought f Homer s attempt at the pposite Although I m not sure how concerned Homer was about preserving historical accuracy and Herodotus definitely got a few things wrong himself Whatever Admittedly there are problems with this analogy first and foremost that my pinion ranks with Herodotus and Herman ranks with Homer but hopefully you get what I m saying ALL The Kennel Club's Illustrated Breed Standards: The Official Guide to Registered Breeds of That being said Herman s background is clearly evident in LEGACY OF KINGS mostly in good ways but not always Time for a list I m going with the cons first bc I liked this book and I don t want to end my review focusingn the handful Sons of Brahma of things that kept it from being perfect CapisceCONS1 Sometimes the facts are crammed into the fiction like Herman just couldn t help herself rather than being smoothly interwovenThe mostbvious example is the references to Aristotle who tutored Alexander the boy Each f the five sections begin with an Aristotle uote but there are numerous ther mentions some f them feeling almost like Alexander is name dropping Aristotle taught us to always look for the common denominator in any problem he says Mathematical Scientific Political Social And it would seem that here the common denominator is In the same vein some f the cultural elements feel a little bit ver the top Like Phillip II f Macedon carrying around the skull Tocqueville of the man who shotut his eye as a drinking goblet YEP The skull Rebel Girls of his enemy covered in silver with amethysts for eyes Then again maybe there s some primary document that supports the claim and my internet search couldn t find it 2 Third person present tenseI don t like it It s distracting Thenly POV I like less is first person present tense However after a while I acclimated That may not sound like a big deal but it is I rarely make it through a book told from this POV but not A Treason of Thorns only did I finish LEGACY OF KINGS I enjoyed it 3 ALL the boys love KaterinaIn fairnessne f the boys simply feels an instant connection to her that is explained by the end f the book and Kat s desirability isn t a major plot point But the fact remains all the boys love Katerina4 A six year Martha, du nervst!: Von einem anderen Umgang mit Demenz old girl is killed in a completely manufactured situationThis is a personal peeve but it sne I m sure many f you share if you re going to kill a child there had better be a darn good reason and it had better be believably unavoidable view spoilerNo matter how I spin it I do not believe a six year ld child I don t care that she s a princess is either going to have the authority to command her nurse to go traipsing Zeugen aus der Todeszone outf the palace sans guards andor entourage r would a nurse mentally deficient enough to follow such a

This was slow moving but I think the world was super interesting and built a lot Sugar in the Social Life of Medieval Islam of potential for the next books Here s my booktalk Honestly fuck this book and fuck its historical inaccuracies Warning This is basically me being all annoyed and comparing how the book made shit up to actual historical truths1 Historical Alexander was hella gay soften it was ridiculous to the point that sometimes I need to set down whatever material I was reading A New Kind of Public: Community, Solidarity, and Political Economy in New Deal Cinema, 1935-1948 on him and just gape I mean a he kissed a boy and he liked it to misuote Katy PerrySo there was a dance that Bagoas performed that was apparently so damn fine he agreed to kiss him in frontf everyone his soldiers weren t that much Henri Matisse: Drawing with Scissors of a help they were all like pls go get a piecef dat ass b Him and Hephaestion Aside from how he compared themselves as achilles and how he compared themselves as Achilles and respectively which fyi people at that time were already debating if the latter two were bangin in the
