Review of Troy: Fall Of Kings (Troy) - David Gemmell by hiker

Advantages: A breathtaking re-telling that will make you want to read more
Disadvantages: It can be a bit confusing if you don't know the basics of the source myth

This, the third chapter in Gemmell's epic re-telling of the Trojan wars, finds the heroes poised for death or glory. Once more I come to a tale part told, so you must forgive the gaps in my knowledge which undoubtedly reduced my enjoyment of this book. ... Read review

An excellent read - thoroughly gripping and enjoyable
Review of The Lie - C. L. Taylor by MsTricia

Advantages: gripping, interesting, great storyline and pace, lots of mystery
