Companions Reviews

  • K M Egan

    I read and loved the previous 4 books in this series but felt robbed when I downloaded this book, its just a review of the previous 4 books in the series and having just read all 4 I felt this whole book was a total waste of my time and money

    Another Good StoryThis retrospective story tells an adventure Pacorus and his companions manage to free a friend from slavery and fight in the arena as gladiators.

    I am a huge fan of Peter Darman's Parthian Chronicles; they are one of my favourite series' of the last few years. This book - the latest published - actually takes place part way through the events of the series. It is written in the same style, and features many of the main characters, but in a detached setting. Although I have enjoyed it, it left me with the question - why?

    What a great book and series!Great story and flow. Characters were well-developed. Historical significance and accuracy was remarkable even for those of us non-experts of the period. Men were men and women were women!I recommend this book (series) for anyone who enjoys a great story, adventure, a little romance, and exciting times in historically accurate setting.5 Stars (out of five)

    Ah, how I've missed my old friends Pacorus and company. I re-read the whole series with this included after the 2nd book.Starts pretty much right after book 2, Parthian Dawn - and gets right into it. I loved the gladiator parts in this book, Peter really gives you a glimpse into that life.If you haven't, FTLOG you need to read this series. Truly one of the best I've ever read.

    This is not a prequel or a sequel but a midquel! I thought to myself that it was a cash cow book as Darman had finished the series. Sorry Peter, I loved every bit of it. The characters have become old friends and it was like going home. The story line was strong and this book earns its place amongst the other Parthian Novels. If Pacorus is your hero, do not miss this!

    Like visiting old friends.Like visiting old friends.Darman has brought back the characters that I grew to know so well and sends them on a great adventure. I strongly recommend this book as well as the rest of the Parthian series.
