    Good follow up

    A nice follow up to the first book. It was a little frustrating going back to the details already covered in the first book, but was a great read. Looking forward to the next book

    Parthian fan

    The strong suit of these books is the story. I like historical fiction. This series is a bit on the looser end of historical fiction as its accuracy is not as high as other historical fiction such as micheners books or Amin Maalouf. For me the other strong suit is that the protagonist is Parthian, a traditional enemy of Rome and therefore usually relegated to the role of bad guys. The cons are as follows: 1. Good editing would have strengthened the writing. 2. The author essentially credits the Romans themselves with their own defeat at the hand of the Parthians by repeatedly giving credit to the creation of roman style legions by Pacorus (the protagonist ) as the only reason for roman defeat. In reality the Parthians did just fine in humiliating the invading roman legions by using horse archers, cataphracts, and recurve bows capable of penetrating standard roman armor . In fact, Romans copied heavy cavalry from both the Parthian and Sarmatian Iranians. While it is true that Parthians were not good ar siege warfare, the next Iranian dynasty was very good and in fact possibly better at siege and military engineering than the Romans.

    Parthian Dawn

    What a difference proper proof reading has made to this 2nd book in the series. An easy to read cracking storyline, unlike the first book in the series,which was hard work.
