Originally reviewed at Bookwraiths Reviews Troy Fall of Kings is the end of David Gemmell's epic historical series and here a reader will find portrayed the final days of the Trojan War the duel between Hektor and Achilles the Trojan Horse and the fall of mighty Troy Without a doubt the novel dazzles in its realistic portrayal of these historical events leaving one both in awe of its brilliance and perplexed by its obvious flaws The good parts of the novel are easy to point out David Gemmell and his wife Who I understand finished said book after her husband’s death did an outstanding job of portraying realistic characters who fit perfectly into the historical narrative of this period These characters behave realistic based upon their established personality and some of them almost burst off the page in their brilliance The same can be said about the combat scenes in Fall of Kings because they radiate ultra realism as the Greek and Trojan warriors exude fear and adrenaline while clashing in ancient combat Even the final duel between Hector and Achilles is superbly done penned in such detailed and dramatic fashion that it must stand as one of the best portrayed combats between heroic warriors in all of literature And we must not forget the final “Trojan Horse” resolution which might be the most well thought out and simplest solutions I've ever encounteredNo matter how well the Gemmell's did some things however there are still obvious flaws with the story Helikaon and Andromache in particular make certain decision that do not ring true to their characterization throughout the series and seem forced so that other important moments in history can be written about Another is the resolution if you can even call it that of Gershom’s strange plot line that was somewhat mystifying throughout the series There are other examples of characters just disappearing or behaving strangely throughout the later part of the book especially the last few chapters where Troy’s survivors are shown fleeing for their lives but I do not want to belabor the point only point out that these moments detract from the effect of the narrative as a wholeWith all that being said I enjoyed the novel It was a fitting ending to a good series A trilogy where the Gemmells did an excellent job of taking the myths about Troy and turning them into compelling historical fiction Not to say they did not take artistic liberties with historical fact but that even though they did it rang or less true For attempting to shed a light of reason on the Trojan War this novel and series is a must read for lovers of historical fiction Finally I would be remise if I did not salute the legendary David Gemmell There will never be another writer who can do justice to a warrior’s true spirit as he did in this series and all his novels A final triumph for a true master of his craft

Darkness falls on the Great Green and the Ancient World is fiercely dividedOn the killing fields outside the golden city of Troy forces loyal to the Mykene King Agamemnon massAmong Troy Fall ePUB #231 them is Odysseus fabled storyteller and reluctant ally to the Mykene He knows that Agamem. The end of the Trojan War is here did Gemmell delivered a satisfying conclusion in his final workThe answer to that will be mostly yes and a few sections of no I’m honestly uite conflicted about Fall of Kings This is the last book in the Troy trilogy by David Gemmell it’s also his final work before he passed away that ended up being finished by his wife Stella Gemmell Because this is his final work there’s a part of me that really want to give this book a full 5 stars but I can’t due to a few problems I had with it I’ll divide this review into two simple parts parts that worked first and then parts that didn’t “Trust your instincts and make judgements on what your heart tells you The heart will not betray you” Firstly the prose Same as the first two books the writing was once again top notch If I didn’t know better I wouldn’t have known that Stella Gemmell took part in the writing of this book; it totally felt like David Gemmell was still the one who wrote it completely Second the last 30% of the book which encompassed the final battle of the Trojan War was awesome Hector vs Achilles was absolutely amazing I’m serious I’ve been waiting for the final duel between these two prominent figures since the first book and Gemmell wrote their duel with expertly that it ended up being one of the best duels I’ve ever read It was superb intense compelling and I completely lost track of time because of the breathtaking battle and drama that unfolds during this seuence The characters of the trilogy felt real and the conclusion was also satisfying Plus Gemmell did a great reimagining on the “Trojan Horse” event that became the signal fire that took down the city of Troy Finally I must say that I’m pleasantly surprised by how much I ended up caring about Kalliades and Banokles I was super bored with their one hundred pages introduction at the beginning of Shield of Thunder I didn’t realize that they would end up being some of the best characters from this trilogy alongside Hector and Odysseus Not Helikaon the main character Exactly “I was a man before I was a king and no true man walks away when a friend needs him” Helikaon was amazing in the first book However since the second book I feel like he’s becoming much of a side character compared to the other characters One huge example for this is that in the last battle of the Trojan War Kalliades and Banokles were there entirely and they did a lot of bloodbath battles while Helikaon appeared very briefly to literally climb And then there was the matter of Gershom’s story ended up being super bizarre and out of place After finishing this and letting it sit for a few hours I honestly don’t know what the purpose of his storyline was Finally I don’t think it was really necessary to have this series being a trilogy; two books should’ve been enough I found that there were uite plenty of sections within the last two books that didn’t really add any value to the storyline “Hate is the father of all evil” Overall though I very much enjoyed reading through this trilogy despite a few issues I had along the way Although the Trojan War came from Greek Mythology Gemmell turned the narrative completely to a historical fiction style; close to zero magic no gods or demigods appearances I know that I started reading Gemmell’s work from his final trilogy and after enjoying this one I won’t dispute the possibility that I will backtrack through his work and start from the beginning Legend Fall of Kings was an incredible read it's Gemmell's final work and it's a great one I highly recommend this trilogy to any fans of historical fiction and Greek Mythology Series Review Lord of the Silver Bow 455 stars Shield of Thunder 45 stars Fall of Kings 45 stars Troy 12515 stars You can buy the book with free shipping by clicking this link You can find this and the rest of my reviews at Novel Notions
