Overview

The chaos spirit had chosen the child Alexander to be its human host. But Parmenion, most powerful warrior of ancient Greece, had won a small victory over the darkness that sought to rule through Alexander. The boy's soul had not been destroyed by evil, but instead had merged with it — and now Parmenion aided Alexander in the battle between light and dark that constantly raged within him.
But there was another world, where the creatures of Greece's legends still flourished. There, the chaos spirit already ruled, through a demon king. In this Greece, there was a prophecy that a child of great power, the legendary golden child, would come and restore the fading magic of the land to the creatures of myth. The demon king believed also that devouring the heart of this fabled child would give him immortality. He believed Alexander, with the power of the chaos spirit within him, to be that child. And so he called Alexander into his world . . .
Only Parmenion, guided by the seeress Derae, his lost love from another life, could hope to save Alexander from the demon king. But who could save the young prince from the chaos spirit that threatened to conquer his soul?

In September, bestselling British author David Gemmell emerged in America with Lion of Macedon. An eager audience of fantasy and historical fiction fans will be all set for its sequel. Alexander had been born to be the human vessel for the Chaos Spirit, but Parmenion, the most powerful warrior in ancient Greece, aided Alexander in his internal battle between Light and Dark. Now the Demon King desires to devour Alexander's heart.

    Good Read

    This story was very enthralling. I like how real history was woven with fantasy. A young prince plagued by an evil inside him, the people who love him fighting for his very soul and the fate of the world. The fantastic fantasy characters and their war, twined with the wars of men. It started a bit slowly, but built to an epic adventure. We grew to care for the rag tag cast of characters, a brave allegiance fighting noble, and sometimes not so much, battles. And the plot twists, my. I was throughly trilled by some of the twists, you had no idea it was coming, pleasant shocks in some - sad disappointment at others. Which is the way of life I guess, Gemmel spins that beautifully. There is a stark realism in the way he tells it.
    It was hard to see Parmenion being a mostly good man, fail so at being a father. Though he redeemed himself much later. Likewise we watched friendship, parental love and true love bent and twisted over time by darkness, doubt and lies. The same mistakes being repeated. Some of the war scenes are brutally descriptive, dark is not just part of the title of this book. Dark thoughts can easily manipulate humans. The darkness slipping under the noses of the cast in plain sight, that was sad to watch unfold. We saw some dark fiends meet their just ends, some good warriors cheated in theirs, and with wonder a few characters lucky enough to gain a happy ending after much sorrow.
