    • ‘Imagine Alexander the Great meets steampunk’, I was told.Well, it’s a nice selling pitch, but the more I thought about it, the more I was intrigued. What an idea! Could it work?The story starts straightforwardly. Lugorix is a Gaulish soldier with a sword called Skullseeker. His best friend is Grecian Matthias, an archer. The story begins by the two being hired to protect and travel with Barsine, a mystic witch, on her journey from Athens with her retainer Damitra.In another storyline we h [...]

    • Original review posted on The Book SmugglersThis is going to be short. I didn’t finish this book, here is why:I’ve been in the mood for mythology/historical novels lately and I thought The Pillars of Hercules would fit the bill. It follows Alexander, before he was The Great, as he makes a move against Athens and then moves further West. His unstoppable army has weapons that most people see as Magic but are really Science (based on the forbidden knowledge of such things that his former tutor, [...]

    • Full review originally at Fantasy Book Critic ANALYSIS: The Pillars of Hercules was a book which I was itching to read simply based on its blurb details. A tale of Alexander the great and with major steampunk elements, it seemed too good to be true. Lastly I also learned that David Constantine was a pseudonym for SF writer David J. Williams. I had previously enjoyed his Autumn Rain trilogy and so I was very much enthused to how he would fuse alternate history with his brand of octane action sequ [...]

    • The Pillars of Hercules is a very fun read and takes a serious stab at something I haven't really seen before and is very much up my alley. For lack of a better term: bronze-punk.What we have — for at least the first two thirds — is a combination alternate history and speculative technology book, set in 330 BC. Now this is a fun and tumultuous period, that of Alexander the Great and one which was to see (in real life) immense changes in the euro-Asian political scene which shaped the world [...]

    • Got this from the library, which was just as well, because I stopped after about a hundred pages. This book has some great concepts- how technology like greek fire and steam engines can look indistinguishable from magic, a sprawling war saga that stretches around the Mediterranean. I don't know much about Alexander the Great, but he seems like a fascinating figure, and I like military history. I liked the idea of industrial technology in the ancient world too.But the concept was better than the [...]

    • My Opinion: I requested this book because the blurb sounded like something I would really enjoy reading. Unfortunately, it didn't live up to my expectations at all. I love reading about Alexander the Great and I love steampunk, so I thought "how could I go wrong with this book". Well, I'll tell you how. The story lines were way too vague, with too many characters popping in and out without adding anything to the story. Also, it felt like the author was just meandering through whatever popped int [...]

    • Over-the-top gearpunk military adventure set in an alternative ancient Greece. This is an imaginative and entertaining read, full of real technology from the ancient world but taken to the extremes of the imagination. There are many historical characters referenced throughout the book and the story travels through the ancient Mediterranean but a knowledge of Bronze Age Greece and Egypt and Persia is not necessary to the enjoyment of the story.I see in reading other reviews some found the languag [...]

    • I purchased this book because I thought I would be reading a tale about Hercules. Instead I'm faced with Alexander and King Phillip, the war of Athens and "steampunk" whatever that means. What is steampunk? Apparently steampunk is telling a story set in the past using current technology. Like this book for instance; a story about Ancient times with the modern grandeur of machines made today. Flying ships, submarines, robots, mechanical spheres that sort of thing.The Pillars of Hercules is medioc [...]

    • I was a little disappointed in this book. The story started as something really interesting about the time of Alexander the Great. However, as the story went, the author introduced several characters without clearly explaining how they fit into the scheme of things. Several plot lines popped up out of the blue and while in the end everything seemed to come together, it took a while to figure out why and how they were important. I was also disappointed in the language used. I would understand tha [...]

    • I thought this was a great idea-steam-punk in the Ancient World under the guiding Hand of Alexander the Great. The book takes you on a tour of a mechanized Mediterranean replete with subs, Greek-fire spitting warships, tank like siege towers, and magic like you've never seen it presented before. Think of it as "Rome" meets "Steamboy" with a dash of "Howl's Moving Castle" and smidgen of "The Hidden Fortress." Pillars combines elements of the tired old sword and sorcery genre and reignites them in [...]

    • I couldn’t resist “Pillars of Hercules” (Night Shade Books, $14.99, 400 pages) because it mixed fantasy with the age of Alexander the Great, perhaps my favorite historial era. Sadly, David Constantine can’t make it work, despite a solid knowledge of the era, as the language is anachronistic, the plot unbelievable and the basic, begging-for-an-explanation, premise is simply ignored.And of course there’s plenty of blood, violence, pain, suffering and death, ending with yet another hard-t [...]

    • I think what turned me off was the modern language and references by the narrator. Phrases like "ace in the hole" seem too modern to me in a story that takes place during the time of Alexander. Now this phrase may have been in use then, but I don't think so. I'm not a big fan of steam punk, but I wanted to give this a try since I love this time in history, particularly the story of Alexander. Since I'm not into steam punk, the modern language may be typical, but it really turned me off. Also, th [...]

    • Myth and magic are intertwined with science, in a novel that combines steampunk, alternate history, mythology and the ancient world.It’s a pretty weird genre mash-up, but it sounded like an interesting idea. Unfortunately it failed. Miserably.Read the full review on my blog Violin in a Void

    • I couldn't put down this book for the first 125 pages or so. From that point on, it slowly went down hill until the last 50 pages or so, where I had to force myself to finish. The premise seemed fresh and exciting at first, but by the end of the book, I just could not care about it anymore. The book ends like there will be more. There is no way I'll pick that one up.

    • The book started out great. It had plenty of action, a little drama, and definitely some mystery. It kept me interested up until the last couple of chapters. The book really just falls of a cliff, and takes a direction that even myself (A huge science fiction fan), couldn't even get into. All in all a good book, just a sucky ending.

    • Clever concept (alternate history Alexander the Great plus steampunk) marred by a jumbled plot, weak characters, and a ludicrous ending. The male characters are all generic action heroes and eventually become indistinguishable; the female characters neatly fit into assorted boring action tropes.

    • Interesting setting, a Hellenic steampunk, but too many 2D characters and anachronistic conversations. A mixed bag of goodies and garbage.
