(PDF) The Blood Star By Nicholas Guild Review PDF

A sequel to the international bestseller The Assyrian, The Blood Star carries Tiglath Ashur through his years of exile and his return to Assyria, where the secrets of his own fate are at last revealed to him.

PUBLISHERS WEEKLY
Shot through with dark, exotic lyricism, Guild’s majestic historical epic cuts a wide swath through ancient Assyria, Egypt, Phoenicia, Sicily, Greece. . .This saga serves up a rich, intoxicating feast, interweaving a cultural anthropology of unfamiliar lands and a stoic meditation on mortality, fate, revenge and justice, the ties of love and blood.

WASHINGTON POST
Guild has surpassed himself with this long historical novel, which is entertaining from start to finish and leaves one with the feeling that there could yet be another to follow . . .dare we hope!

From Publishers Weekly
Shot through with dark, exotic lyricism, Guild’s majestic historical epic cuts a wide swath through ancient Assyria, Egypt, Phoenicia, Sicily, Greece. Its narrator-hero, Tiglath Ashur, seen before in The Assyrian , is banished from Nineveh by his hated half-brother, the Assyrian king, partly due to a misunderstanding that is not cleared up until long after the brothers are reconciled. Fleeing the king’s assassins, Tiglath encounters formulaic elements of the adventure novel–sudden perils, gory battles, omens, spicy lovemaking. But Guild easily transcends genre conventions. His witty, world-weary hero grows in stature through his quest, deepened by experience and by love for a young Egyptian slave-girl whom he rescues and later marries. This saga serves up a rich, intoxicating feast, interweaving a cultural anthropology of unfamiliar lands and a stoic meditation on mortality, fate, revenge and justice, the ties of love and blood.
