incredible twist Really Grand Adventure taleIt Hoopers Pasture from Maine to Vermont has it all battles betrayalseroes to top it of enough plot twists differences then the recognisable storyline of Troy to keep you going guessing right until the very last chapterLooking back was I overally Historic Hahns Peak hard on the first two parts of the trilogy mayeb As this chapter really stood out for me loved all the characters good n bad looking around for my next read by the author One of Gemmell s finest series Iave now read all Deathcaster (Shattered Realms, his books and recommend this series especiallyIt is wonderfully written and will keep you on the edge of your seat Historically correct and the characters are ones thatave often been over looked Gemmell will go down as one of the finest writers known I strongly suggest that anyone reading this read the Troy series Any series by Out of the Ashes (The Legacy Chronicles, him actually You will be glad you did Originally reviewed at Bookwraiths Reviews Troy Fall of Kings is the end of David Gemmell s epicistorical series and BITE (A Mate Of His Own here a reader will find portrayed the final days of the Trojan War the duel between Hektor and Achilles the Trojan Horse and the fall of mighty Troy Without a doubt the novel dazzles in its realistic portrayal of theseistorical events leaving one both in awe of its brilliance and perplexed by its obvious flaws The good parts of the novel are easy to point out David Gemmell and is wife Who I understand finished said book after er Six-Moon Trail husband s death did an outstanding job of portraying realistic characters who fit perfectly into theistorical narrative of this period These characters behave realistic based upon their established personality and some of them almost burst off the page in their brilliance The same can be said about the combat scenes in Fall of Kings because they radiate ultra realism as the Greek and Trojan warriors exude fear and adrenaline while clashing in ancient combat Even the final duel between Hector and Achilles is superbly done penned in such detailed and dramatic fashion that it must stand as one of the best portrayed combats between Mustard Seed Magic heroic warriors in all of literature And we must not forget the final Trojan Horse resolution which might be the most well thought out and simplest solutions I ve ever encounteredNo matterow well the Gemmell s did some things owever there are still obvious flaws with the story Helikaon and Andromache in particular make certain decision that do not ring true to their characterization throughout the series and seem forced so that other important moments in istory can be written about Another is the resolution if you can even call it that of Gershom s strange plot line that was somewhat mystifying throughout the series There are other examples of characters just disappearing or behaving strangely throughout the later part of the book especially the last few chapters where Troy s survivors are shown fleeing for their lives but I do not want to belabor the point only point out that these moments detract from the effect of the narrative as a wholeWith all that being said I enjoyed the novel It was a fitting ending to a good series A trilogy where the Gemmells did an excellent job of taking the myths about Troy and turning them into compelling Leftover Dead (Trailer Park Mystery, historical fiction Not to say they did not take artistic liberties withistorical fact but that even though they did it rang or less true For attempting to shed a light of reason on the Trojan War this novel and series is a must read for lovers of The Witches historical fiction Finally I would be remise if I did not salute the legendary David Gemmell There will never be another writer who can do justice to a warrior s true spirit ase did in this series and all Splinter his novels A final triumph for a true master ofis craft How Fall of Kings should Breed of Innocence (The Breed Chronicles have endedNote All endings are written by me in anomage to How it Should Have Ended They aren t spoilers none of this stuff appened although I would ve enjoyed any of these endings than the actual endingPossible ending 1 Lord Helikaon said KhalkeusWhat is it Khalkeus I m busy with preparation for our next steps in the war with the Mykene

Ikaon the main character Exactly I was a man before I was a king and no true man walks away when a friend needs Bloody Bones (Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter, him Helikaon was amazing in the first book However since the second book I feel likee s becoming much of a side character compared to the other characters One Bloody Bones (Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter, huge example for this is that in the last battle of the Trojan War Kalliades and Banokles were there entirely and they did a lot of bloodbath battles while Helikaon appeared very briefly to literally climb And then there was the matter of Gershom s story ended up being super bizarre and out of place After finishing this and letting it sit for a fewours I In Defense of Food honestly don t know what the purpose ofis storyline was Finally I don t think it was really necessary to ave this series being a trilogy two books should ve been enough I found that there were uite plenty of sections within the last two books that didn t really add any value to the storyline Hate is the father of all evil Overall though I very much enjoyed reading through this trilogy despite a few issues I ad along the way Although the Trojan War came from Greek Mythology Gemmell turned the narrative completely to a Black and White historical fiction style close to zero magic no gods or demigods appearances I know that I started reading Gemmell s work fromis final trilogy and after enjoying this one I won t dispute the possibility that I will backtrack through The Color of Water his work and start from the beginning Legend Fall of Kings was an incredible read it s Gemmell s final work and it s a great one Iighly recommend this trilogy to any fans of کسی به سرهنگ نامه نمی‌نویسد historical fiction and Greek Mythology Series Review Lord of the

fashion Banokles and Kalliades Two former officers and stone killers of the Mykene army who now serve Troy andAndromache Wife of Hektor and lover of Aeneas I know what you are thinking but its complicated And many many supporting characters on both sides OhohThe Epicness is AwesomeOkay everything about this book was transcendant in its testosterone fueled greatness but I do want to specifically mention one aspect that I thought was especially well done This series deals with an Pakistan historical event the fall of Troy that is fairly well known at least in a popular sense thank you Homer despite the minimal amount ofistorical records on the subject Gemmell manages to include all of the famous elements of the Troy saga but Pitch Dark he does so in such a fresh original way that the story feels completely new while still making sense within the popularly understoodistorical frame of reference I will give you one example don t worryno spoilers I assume everyone knows the story of the Trojan Horse Well Gemmell includes this element in the story but Dont Forget Your Spacesuit, Dear his depiction is so uniue and credible way that the reader at least me a doesn t recognize it as such until it s actuallyappening and b once the scene occurs the reader again at least me is left thinking OhshitI can completely see ow this event over time would become the legend of the Trojan Horse The execution wasBRILLIANT In addition the way that Gemmell expands the story to include characters and events that are remembered in world istory outside the narrative arc of the fall of Troy was simply amazing and added real epic depth to the story Of course I do ave one NEGATIVE thing to say about this book and the series which may seem pretty obvious Itmade me feel really really sucky about myself Not exactly the kind of book you want to pick up if you are struggling with your self esteem These guys and girls are at the pinnacle of bravery loyalty onor and overall badassedness and I kept feeling like the last one chosen at recess when the kids are picking kickball teams Apart from that personal self image speed bump this is as fun and enjoyable as it gets and I give it my HIGHEST POSSIBLE RECOMMENDATION60 stars. Ill wreak terrible vengeance for the death of Deadly Slumber - Demon Tales his wife at MykeneandsWar Atomic Ghost has been declaredAs enemies who are also kinsmen are filled with bloodlust they know that some of them men and women will becomeeroes eroes who will live for ever in a story that will echo down the centurie.
