Thank you for stopping by as I share my review for Legends of Persia by Jennifer Macaire as part of the blog tour today! With thanks to Rachel at Rachel’s Random Resources for the invite and to the author for my copy. Just to mention that there is also a fab giveaway to enter but first of all let’s take a look at the description for the book…
ABOUT THE BOOK
When Ashley Riveraine jumped at the chance to travel back in time to meet her hero Alexander the Great, she never thought she would end up staying there…
Following Alexander the Great’s army on its journey across Persia, Ashley is walking the knife edge of history. As a presumed goddess, Ashley is expected to bless crops, make sure battles are won and somehow keep herself out of the history books.
Can Ashley avoid the wrath of the Time Institute while keeping the man she loves alive?
In Legends of Persia we catch up with Ashley once again, now this is book two in the series but I do think it can be read as a standalone as the author weaves some of the back story in to explain how Ashley found herself living in the past.
Jennifer Macaire mixes in some historical references along with plenty of twists and turns. Then add in all the different myths and mentions of gods and you get quite a story. It all combines to create a story that easily pulled into the past. The mixing of time travel, history and adventure works surprisingly well making it very easy to get caught up in the story.
There is still a passionate and sizzling connection between Alexander and Ashley that adds a romantic edge to the book. Although there are some darker moments and some complicated love triangles that cause quite a few issues along the way!
Legends of Persia has a great pace and in no time at all I was over half way through without even realising. You get to experience every day life through Ashley’s eyes and it is all written with enough detail to picture it clearly but not too much that it feels like an overload of information.
Legends of Persia has a great mix of adventure and history!
