Short and Sweet Book Reviews # 93 - Behind the Throne by K.B. Wagers, The Alexander Inheritance by Eric Flint, Gorg Huff, Paula Goddlett

Behind the Throne (The Indranan War #1)Behind the Throne by K.B. Wagers
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is great space opera. Hailimi Bristol is anything but the heir to the throne but when her sisters are killed she is forced to come back and be just that. Notice something different. It seems that the women rule the planet and gender roles are reversed. Not everyone is happy to see Hailimi back and her life is in constant danger. She has a great group of characters who are helping her stay alive. A fun and hard to put down story. I really liked this book and am off to get book two, After the Crown, which is already out.

The Alexander InheritanceThe Alexander Inheritance by Eric Flint
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a new world created by those aliens who's art keep moving parts of earth between different time periods. This time it is a cruise ship that goes from the Caribbean to the Mediterranean. But they don't just change locations they change time periods and this time it is just after the death of Alexander the Great. I did find this one a little harder to swallow. This was a ship with 5000 people on board and having been on a cruise ship for 4 months at a time the lack of information about most of those was not very realistic. It was however fun. There are the historical characters and the fictional ones all interacting as they try to get a different result from the one that is written in the cruise ships history. I do recommend it just take it with a grain of salt. I found it the least believable book of the series.
