Re: Dancing with the Lion: preorder is open

Thank you I will for sure! I'm sure it's just a mistake, I will try to contact them to see what has happened. I'm super excited to read the book!

Re: Dancing with the Lion: preorder is open

Still no new ebook file...That's strange, but maybe it's because I ordered bundle that there are some complications... But the file still isn't there. I'm sure it will turn up soon. Thanks for the reply!

Re: Dancing with the Lion: preorder is open

I hope I haven't mistaken the date, but I thought if we preordered the book would be published Friday before October 21st... Which is today... But I haven't got the book yet, even though I preordered? Does anyone know what time of the day it will be released?

Hunting and archery

I recently looked at some vase depictions of hunting scenes and also Philip II's tomb hunting scene and I find it strange that they would not use a bow and arrow while hunting. Was it not commong to use a bow and arrow during hunting in ancient Macedonia and Greece? Would Alexander have been taught ...

Re: Historical inaccuracies

I was also curious if they used name-shortening, but I would assume they maybe did? Considering the long names they had, and also that family and friends often give each other nicknames or pet-names... Who knows? For Hephaistion I've seen the nickname "Phai" often, but someone told me it was a girl'...

Re: Dancing with the Lion: preorder is open

Thank you! So Hephaistion is not afraid to stand out and flaunt his Athenian ancestry. He seems like an interesting character to follow. I'm glad he isn't presented as insecure and bowing down to Alexander constantly. And I enjoyed the scenes with Cassander, and Alexander's dislike of him. They neve...

Re: Dancing with the Lion: preorder is open

I just read the first few chapters, and I can't wait for more! Everything from the food, culture, language is so well woven into the plot, and I admit I've had to do some research to understand it properly. Your webpage is super helpful and adds much to the reading experience! I learn something new ...

Re: Dancing with the Lion: preorder is open

Thanks for all the book and fanfiction suggestions! I'm not too fond of fanfiction anymore, but there are some hidden gems to find. I personally don't have any problems with adult themes as I'm 16, but my parents are particularly nosy, so I think I'll stick to ebooks from now on :mrgreen: I see I ha...

Re: Dancing with the Lion: preorder is open

Hi, Rosegarden. Have you tried Mary Renault's Fire from Heaven? No, not yet. I actually want to read it, but I couldn't find it in any libraries and I am quite young, so I just recently got the ability to order things online with my own visa card. Then it seems I have completely forgotten about it....

Re: Dancing with the Lion: preorder is open

Just ordered both books! I'm very new on the pothos site and my interest for Alexander has recently sparked. I'm even in the process of reading the illiad for the first time. I tried to watch Oliver Stone's movie, but the lead actor didn't convince me. I love historical fiction but I haven't found a...
