Thomas Sundell's A Bloodline of Kings follows Phillip II of Macedon father of Alexander the Great from birth through his famous son's birth An interesting side note the very first thing you see when you open the book is an inverted map of Ancient Greece with Macedon at the top and the islands at the bottom This is done to illustrate the point of view of the Makedones Their world centers on the Aegean Sea and the strongest cultural influence is from the heartlands of the Hellenes Part of what I loved about this is the fact that most of us are very aware at least in a broad sense of the story of Alexander the Great but this is coming from a different perspective and even the maps in the end pages prepare you for thisPhillip spelled Phillipos throughout the novel is shown from birth through his childhood as an incredibly smart young man raised as support for the rightful king of Macedonia The fourth child in his family Phillip seems destined to be forever used as a pawn in his older siblings plans for rule In many ways similar to Robert Grave's I Claudius the royal family of Macedon is seen as filled with potential conspirators rulers spies and others all bent on the crown and it is only through Phillip's ability to navigate his world that he ends up in a position to ruleThe novel is told in present tense and switches often from character to character including all of Phillip's siblings wives and many other friends and foes Considering he is often viewed as the precursor to the greatness of his son it is fascinating to see the story of just how fractured Macedonia was when he came into power and the shape he moved it into before the birth of his sonA fascinating read and one I hope someday will be followed by a seuel
