Bog-standard David Gemmell fare - not his best

Dark Prince - David Gemmell

 

I've read quite a few David Gemmell books and they're pretty much alike on the whole. I find that I enjoyed this one less than others that I've read. This revolves around Philip of Macedon, His son, Alexander and Parmenion, his Spartan general.  This takes the Alexander the Great historical tale and adds a fantasy element as he is taken by the Chaos Spirit.

Far too many battles and fighting for my taste although inevitable, i suppose, given the subject matter. Not brilliant.
