Présentation de l'éditeur

‘Parthian Vengeance’ is the third instalment in the Parthian Chronicles, the adventures of King Pacorus of Dura, and follows on from ‘Parthian Dawn’.

The brooding peace that hangs over Parthia is shattered by a murder that triggers the final confrontation that will decide who rules the empire. Pacorus leads his veteran army east to destroy once and for all the forces of his implacable enemies, Mithridates and Narses. But his foes have been waiting for this moment and what Pacorus believes will be a short campaign will turn into a long war that will culminate in the bloodiest battle in the history of the Parthian Empire.

Once again Pacorus gathers his faithful companions around him for the life-or-death struggle with the treacherous Mithridates and the ambitious Narses – Domitus, the ex-Roman centurion and now general of Dura’s army; Gallia, his fierce warrior queen; Orodes, the landless prince; Prince Malik of the Agraci; and Surena, destined to become one of the greatest Parthian commanders of all time.

A map of the Parthian Empire at the time of Pacorus (the 1st Century BC) can be found on the maps page of my website: www.peterdarman.com

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Further adventures from ancient Parthia. 3 septembre 2012
Par Bob Jarvis - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Another fine example of story-telling by Mr. Darman; who can really carry a plot, write good dialogue and put over some excellent action/battle scenes, whilst never failing to use the very best Queen's English in the process. Most of the characters are interesting and sympathetic; also the very brief exposure of the hero to the principal villains shows in them some acceptably loathsome traits that further direct face-to face exposure to these scoundrels would likely have improved the tale.
In the first book of this trilogy we were introduced to the young Parthian Prince Pacorus, who was quickly captured by the Romans, enslaved and transported to Rome; where he encounters his current wife and "companions" as they were exposed to the heroic influence of the mighty Spartacus and battled their way to freedom. I have to say that, for me, part two and three (this is number three) of this trilogy have not managed to match the excellent entertainment provided by the first one.
For a start, the principal friends of Pacorus are shown in such an unfailingly good light; they almost wear haloes it is so bright. The very welcome exception is the father, who becomes decidedly prickly towards Pacorus during our hero's quest for justice by warfare. The wife, Gallia also shows her very worst side. Unfortunately, her downward personality turn borders on an almost complete mental breakdown. She slowly becomes a spiteful, argumentative and most times illogical complainer. Nothing suits her, and I found that reading through the times she became "centre-stage" really began to spoil my enjoyment of the book. When she eventually reverts to arguing and loudly rebuking her husband, now a king, during public meetings the whole concept borders on the ridiculous.
Other elements that rang decidedly false was the placing, by King Pacorus, of many of his trusted companions, ex-slaves and lowly born individuals, into positions of great power; indeed, many even become kings. Given the strict, hide-bound rules that existed in ancient times regarding moving between classes in general, and royalty in particular, this promotion of lowly born into these lofty positions, not to mention the acceptance of the same by other Parthian kings and queens, is pretty much unbelievable.
Final niggle; where are the maps in all these books? Pacorus is likely one of the most travelled Parthians ever ans I was following hos sojourns in a geographical vacuum. I never became accustomed to where any of the Parthian cities where located, or what routes the invasions were to follow. This trilogy seriously needs a few maps!
When I began this review I really didn't mean to sound so negative. My complaints are very personal in nature and do not detract too much from an extremely good trilogy. I did enjoy the experience and I will certainly read more of Mr. Darman's future work.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 historically dubious 8 mars 2013

There are references in the book that made me scratch my head in disbelief as to their historical correctness.. For example, there is a reference to a Prziwalski horse breed..! I doubt ancient parthians spoke any Polish. Overal, the book is still entertaining and I do not regret buying it.
1.0 étoiles sur 5 I hate it 27 mai 2015

The writing style is easy to read and at rare times pleasant. The novel needs editing.

Female characters are well described. Fictional and historic characters are poorly developed. Some characters do not contribute to the plot.

The story could have been written in half its length. The chapters were that infrequent and long that they were exhaustive.

Creative imagery is lacking. Action is generic and uninventive.

Research is extremely limited. The facts could have been copied and pasted from Wikipedia in an hour.

I sense that Peter Darman is strongly interested in ancient Parthia and Rome, but is not inspired and passionate. He does not have a thorough understanding of the events, personalities and societies in ancient Parthia and Rome.

I bought the "Parthian Chronicles" to assist my research, but they did not help.

As I stated in my review of book 2 in this series, there are too many repetitive descriptions of the forces, camps, horse care, etc. , and that carries over to this sequel. The use of these long descriptive paragraphs has honed my skimming skills to the point that I read this book in a matter of a few days, without neglecting any of my routines. There also seems to be very little actual dialogue to fulfill the potential of the characters. If the 4th book continues this pattern and concludes the story, I would suggest the author hire an editor, and a proofreader, and reissue it as the single novel it really is. I believe that just might have given him a bestseller.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 loved it. have not read a better written series of books 16 août 2014

Peter writes to give the impression that you are there with him, you can almost feel the tension, passion and empathy your self.
Out of the couple of hundred books I have read, this is by far one of the best authors.
You should read all 3 books in order to get the full feeling and history of the Parthian empire.
Right from the start this series binds you to the main story and draws you in.
I promise it will be a wonderful adventure.
