Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

Reading this sequel to Lion of Macedon is like reading a compressed, accelerated Lord of the Rings crossed with the classic Star Trek episode, "Mirror, Mirror." Preternaturally precocious 4-year-old Alexander is kidnapped by Philippos, a demonic parallel-universe twin of King Philip of Macedon. Philip's strategos (chief general and strategist), Parmenion, and Philip's assassin, Attalus, form an uneasy alliance in order to retrieve Alexander. Passed (by the sorcerer Aristotle) through a portal to Makedones, a world geographically similar to but historically different from their own, they must first find Alexander and then make their way through hostile, enchanted territory inhabited by magical creatures to a rendezvous with Aristotle. But Philip of Macedon isn't the only person who has a twin in this parallel world, and as Parmenion discovers more about Makedones, he finds that the similarities rather than the differences are the most troubling.

There are two stories here. First, Alexander's mystic quest for redemption (carried out by the chosen few) and Parmenion and the Spartans' parallel last-ditch battle (fought with ordinary weapons); then, David Gemmell follows Alexander and Parmenion home. Although they have beaten a horrific demon in Makedones, they have yet to face the demons of Macedon: Alexander's life and soul are at stake in another battle against darkness. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

Format: Taschenbuch
"Victory or death", said the young Spartan. - "Victory is preferable," Parmenion answered.

Ha, das Buch geht ebenso dramatisch in die nächste Runde, wie es im "Lion of Macedon" aufgehört hat. Parmenion hat sich als General von Philipp von Makedonien den Namen "Death of Nations" angedient und zusammen erobern sie Griechenland. Währenddessen kämpft im Inneren von Philipps Sohn, Alexander, der mächtige Chaosgeist um die Kontrolle. Doch bevor es dazu kommen kann, entführt ein mächtiger Magierkönig den jungen Prinzen. Parmenion, der Alexander auf eine schicksalsträchtige Weise verbunden ist, folgt ihm in ein Griechenland in einem parallelen Universum. Vieles ist gleich, alles ist anders.

Anders als im historisch angelegten Vorband holt Gemmell hier mit der Magiekeule weit aus: Fremde Welten werden entdeckt, mächtige Magier bekämpft und die griechische Mythologie auf eine faszinierende Art und Weise zum Leben erweckt! Wieder einmal hat mich Gemmel kreativ sehr überrascht, weil er erneut brillante Wendungen und ausgefeilte Züge entwickelt, die dem Werk fern ausgetretener Fantasypfade gänzlich neue Nuancen abgewinnen. Parmenion entpuppt sich wie erneut als ein formidabler Charakter, der zwar als General scheinbar an zweiter Stelle steht, aber bei einer Schachpartie a la Gemmell können auch Bauern Könige schlagen. Und wenn zu guter Letzte erneut Sparta und seine Phalanxen in die Schlacht geführt werden, dann, ja dann rockt das Leserherz.

Leider muss ich einen Stern abziehen, weil dieses durchweg grandios geschriebene Buch ganz am Schluss leider ein nur mäßiges Ende findet.

Alexander is a kind and gentle child. He is thus because Pamenion managed to save his soul from the dark god when he was born. But as Alexander grows older the taint grows stronger, his touch means death for living things. So Parmenion has to battle the forces of evil once again.
The reason i gave this book only 4 stars is that Parmenion the military genius mutates to Parmenion the superhero.
I very strongly recomend this book, although i also recomend you read the "Lion of Macedon" first. Because it is a) even better and b) you get to know the backroundstory and the characters even better.

A solid read, and no waste of time if you liked the first part "Lion of Macedon" (which is way better) and want to know how it continues. Gemmell delivers, but is not at his peak here. Not a must read, recommended for Gemmell fans (like me) only.
4 stars overall, 3 stars compared to other Gemmell books.

This book was wonderfully written. Gemmel had a wonderful idea with this book of the series. Although I must say, this book is not for young readers. Yet, to others, I must say you need to read this book if you like mythology.

HASH(0xa177f2f4) von 5 Sternen Incredible Greek fantasy epic !! 5. September 1997
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This sequel to The Lion of Macedon takes the great General Parmenion to a mythical Greece, where fantastic creatures of legend and myth still live...satyrs, dryads and centaurs abound. Parmenion must survive in this new land to find his son, Alexander, before the Dark God does. This is an epic struggle where he must save his son and the world, from this horrible evil, and his own heart, over the one true love he thought lost to him forever. A wonderful book for hours of enjoyment! A ten is given overall, the author is able to make you feel powerful emotions with the story and gives you characters that you truly know.

Don't miss this book!!

Also look for Stones of Power references inside, such as: Pendarric, Fallen King of Atlantis (Aristotle), and the Sipstrassi stones (gold veined with black)

HASH(0xa177afb4) von 5 Sternen Alexander as it might have been... 3. August 2006
Von Mason Sorgdrager - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This is a companion review to Lion of Macedon.

Dark Prince takes us back to the David Gemmell reconstructed world of ancient Greece. There are a whole heap of goings-on that occurred in Lion of Macedon that led to certain events in Dark Prince, but to tell you them would ruin Lion of Macedon for you, so I won't.

Anyway, this is rather a strange book. It retains some of the feel of Lion of Macedon but is completely different in many aspects. A significant portion of the novel is spent in an alternate reality Greece where mythical creatures such as centaurs and minotaurs still roam the Earth. There is also an evil Phillippos of Makedon to contend with.

Alexander is an extraordinary child in many aspects. He has an extreme constitution and a very high intelligence for one supposedly four years old (in the first third of the book). Actually, despite the possession of the Chaos Spirit, I did still struggle to deal with the adult-like conversations and concerns of the toddler Alexander.

The book improved for me greatly when the setting resumed in the Greece we knew from Lion of Macedon.

Still, in all, this novel had what one expects from a David Gemmell. Heaps of battles, the odd love scene, sword fights a-plenty, revenge, betrayals...

If you pick up this novel expecting an historically accurate re-telling of the Alexander myth, then this is not the novel for you. But, if you are looking for a rousing tale of friendship and loyalty set in a similar world to the ancient Greece we know and love, and a familiar David Gemmell world, then you will not be disappointed.

In my opinion, this sequel does not live up to the heights of Lion of Macedon though. However, it had a satisfying ending that tied together loose strings very nicely.
HASH(0xa177fc0c) von 5 Sternen What if Alexander the Great was Half Demon? (Spoiler Free Review) 1. Juli 2010
Von Poisoned Blade - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Dark Prince is the sequel to The Lion of Macedon, which is possibly the most heroically epic book ever written.
You really need to read that book before reading this one.

Story:
Dark Prince asks the question, "What if famed conqueror Alexander the Great was possessed by a Demonic War God?" The adventure takes place among the warring states of Ancient Greece and in an alternate dimension with mythological characters like Centaurs, Dryads, a Minotaur, a Gorgon, etc... The story is action packed and features all of the intense action, commentary on human nature, and fantasy that Gemmell fans have come to appreciate.

Characters:
David Gemmell writes the best heroic fantasy characters. Although the characters are heroic warriors battling overwhelming odds, their flaws make them more dimensional and they seem like real people. Many fantasy characters are vehicles that travel from point A to B and simply drive the plot while saying heroic things that an archetypal hero would be expected to say. But David Gemmell's characters are often struggling with their own personal demons or post traumatic stress... or in the case of this book, an actual demon.

Writing Style:
The world is fantastic, dark, and gritty. The environments leap of the page. The action is visceral and epic. The characters hold your interest as you cheer them on through their struggles.

Action:
There are epic battles in Ancient Greece, epic fantasy battles with mythical creatures, magic duels, fist fights, assassination attempts, skirmishes... you name it, it's in here.
All of the battles are intensely written. You feel the impact of swords on shields and spears puncturing bodies. The battles also have physical and mental consequences for the heroes as some of them start to lose their humanity.

Maturity:
This is for young adults or adults. There's sex, violence, gore, and mature themes.

Overall:
This is a very good book. I had one problem with the overall story and I felt that it skipped around quite a bit and doesn't really build on itself.
At times, the story advances 10 years, and even skips to alternate universes. I don't know if any other writer could have pulled this off.
But in the end, David Gemmell's writing style makes this a very memorable adventure.

If you enjoyed this book, check out Legend, Waylander, Winter Warriors, or the Rigante Saga also from David Gemmell.
If you are a fan of Robert E. Howard, you'll enjoy David Gemmell's work.
Avoid this book if you like simple storylines or hate battles.
HASH(0xa177ff24) von 5 Sternen No one else could have pulled this off 10. Juni 2008
Von KindlePad - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Reading about this book, the incongruence of real Greece and mythical Greece, it sounded cheesy, corny. But only Gemmell could pull it off this well. His works stand alone as never following the genre, always changing, never playing it safe. Most fantasy book series feature lead characters that never die, just go on for book after book after book. Gemmell doesn't hold to this tradition - his characters are real and what happens to them is dictated by the story. As a result, his characters always surprise you - evil, vile characters redeeming themselves, once powerful, great men becoming traitors for gold, etc. You really never know what's going to happen. All of a sudden, half way thru a book you can have a new chapter "20 years later...." and you think "what the heck?!" but he does it masterfully - he's telling an epic story - not a "day in the life on this one character."

This is a sequel of course, so you can't read it alone. But the story ends here, as it should. Gemmell even ties in some elements of his other books cleverly, no spoilers. A shame we'll have no more from him, I only found his books about 5 years ago but have literally read every one of them. They stand apart and above all others. The only 2 I have left to read are his last 2 Troy books.

If you are new to Gemmell, start with "Legend" and I envy you - the first time reader of it.
