Post a Comment. My relationship with the work of David Gemmell is clear and straight forward. A consistent writer in terms of story, content, and style, I do not need to research a Gemmell novel before reading it.

I know it will be heroic story set in a relatively generic fantasy setting with focus on action and decision in times of war and strife.

I also know the work will not tax my intellect; more beach or late night reading requiring little active participation. Thus it was that his Greek duology— Lion of Macedon and Dark Prince threw me for a loop—a small loop, but a loop. Opening in Sparta around B. For those knowing nothing of Parmenion or having only a basic knowledge of Greek history but are interested in reading the duology, I strongly suggest first reading the duology then any real history or biography.

In the end, there are other titles which do aspects of Lion of Macedon and Dark Prince better. But Lion of Macedon and Dark Prince remain decent if not light reading. No comments:. Newer Post Older Post Home. Subscribe to: Post Comments Atom.

Lion of Macedon

Lion of Macedon by David Gemmell. The dearly-departed David Gemmell was, in his lifetime, acknowledged as a master of the heroic fantasy, and if you want any proof of that, read Lion of Macedon. The tale begins in Sparta in the period after the end of the interminable Peloponnesian wars, when Sparta had begun to weaken, and several decades before the rise of Philip and Alexander the Greats. The eponymous hero, Parmenion, is a Spartan — a true Lakedaimonios — with a Macedonian mother. Because of his half-barbarian heritage, he is something of an outcast when we meet him as a fifteen year old boy in the harsh, near brutal training Spartan boys were put through.
