– ‘The Magic Of Wor(l)ds’ blog is a hobby, reviews and other bookish stuff on this site are done for free.
I’m grateful of receiving a free copy from the publisher/author in exchange for an honest review of this book. –
When Ashley Riveraine jumped at the chance to travel back in time to meet her hero Alexander the Great, she never thought she would end up staying there…
Following Alexander the Great’s army on its journey across Persia, Ashley is walking the knife edge of history. As a presumed goddess, Ashley is expected to bless crops, make sure battles are won and somehow keep herself out of the history books.
Can Ashley avoid the wrath of the Time Institute while keeping the man she loves alive?
About the Author :
Jennifer Macaire is an American living in Paris. She likes to read, eat chocolate, and plays a mean game of golf. She grew up in upstate New York, Samoa, and the Virgin Islands. She graduated from St Peter and Paul High School in St Thomas and moved to NYC where she modelled for five years for Elite. She went to France and met her husband at the polo club. All that is true. But she mostly likes to make up stories.
As readers from my first review know I wasn’t a hugh fan of Ashley, but somehow she’s growing on me in this second installment of ‘The Time for Alexander’.
There are still some things I’m struggeling with and probably still will throughout the series, but overall I’m enjoying these books.
It’s just so fascinating and I’m learning alot about Alexander, who is a bit of a blind spot for me in my history knowledge.
The writing itself is overall more than okay, maybe a tad dumbed down again, but it kept me hooked and reading at a great pace.
Just saying, I’ve read it again in under two days!
Furthermore did the author a huge amount of research into the history.
The reports on the battle strategies are interesting and so are the historically accurate characters and life in the army at that time.
Really the most alluring about this book as it gives you a kind of factual journey into the ancient world of Alexander.
I’m definitely looking forward to what happens next to Alexander (although I already know some!) and Ashley.
