      following The Assyrian (who is half Greek and tells the story of his life to his Greek great grandchildren at the venerable age of 97, ~610) after his exile in the first of the series (exile ~680 when he was ~25); wanderings, intrigue, exotic societies, intrigue, battles etc, the novel has all the ingredients that made the subgenre successful and this one rolls from the first page and is considerably less predictable than its predecessor, so I liked it a lot and was engrossed by it until the end [...]

      Es la continuación en el tiempo de "El Asirio" del mismo autor. Sirve el mismo comentario que hice para la primera parte:Excelente novela histórica ambientada en la Asiria del S. VII a.c. Cuenta la vida de dos hermanastros y príncipes asirios, su amistad y su odio, sus peleas y envidias, sus amores y aventuras, y como telón de fondo la historia de una época poco novelada pero muy interesante en la que conocemos el esplendor y caída de un imperio, el asirio, y de muchos otros pueblos y cult [...]

      Book 2 of the Tiglath Ashur saga by Nicholas Guild.In a lot of ways The Assyrian and The Blood Star could be one massive tome if they had wanted to release a 1200 page novel. The Blood Star starts right where The Assyrian ends off, Tiglath being banished from the Land of Ashur by his brother.The first half of the novel is quite different then The Assyrian as Tiglath no longer leads vast armies or has to deal with Assyrian politics. Instead he is a man on the run, along with his trusty slave Keph [...]

      This is definitely one of the best books I've read in a long time, but there were times where it got too slow for me to give it five stars. I found it much more readable and exciting than the first book in the series (which acts as more of a setup to this book than a whole story in its own right). I now wish there were more books like this--books where the main characters galavant around the ancient world, going from Sidon to Sicily to the Steppes of Asia and into the deserts of Africa. The loca [...]

      Originally published in 1989, this brilliant title -- or more accurately, the series of which The Blood Star is the second and final instalment -- appears to have disappeared from the collective consciousness of contemporary readers, if scant number of ratings and reviews it garners here and on is any indication. I have not been aware of it or its author myself until searching explicitly for historical fiction set in ancient Mesopotamia. This is a bit of a shame, because I've found both volumes [...]

      Tutto sommato avvincente ma comunque un gradino inferiore rispetto il primo volume. In questo secondo libro l'autore tenta di sopperire al calo di qualità con un aumento della quantità, ma non sempre raggiunge l'obiettivo desiderato. Il principe assiro Tiglath, ormai esiliato dalla propria patria, intraprende un lungo viaggio attraverso tutto il mondo allora conosciuto, ed in effetti per più della metà di questo volume si tratta di un puro racconto di viaggio: svariate ambientazioni, numeros [...]

      The Blood Star begins exactly where its predecessor, The Assyrian ends (this is probably obvious, but if you have not read the first book in the series, you must read it first!). I ordered a copy of this book the day I finished The Assyrian as I was eager to continue reading about Tiglath Ashur, our hero. I was not disappointed. With an antiquated writing style, Nicholas Guild thrusts his reader back into the ancient world - it is the Golden Age of Assyria, but we do not return to Assyria until [...]

      Fino a metà libro ero deciso a dare a questo libro 4.5 stelle, stesso voto che ho dato a "L' Assiro", ma l' ultima metà del libro mi ha convinto a dare 5 stelle.Non è possibile leggere "Ninive" senza "L' assiro", ma neanche "L' assiro" può esser letto senza "Ninive" in quanto "L' assiro" di fatto si interrompe a metà storia.In "Ninive" si può leggere finalmente la fine della storia.Nella parte finale di "Ninive" si spiega finalmente tutto quello che è accaduto nel corso dei due libri.Trov [...]

      Quanta fatica per procurarmi questo libro! Non posso credere che la Rizzoli l'abbia messo fuori catalogo!Però ne è valsa veramente la pena.Questo secondo romanzo è all'altezza del primo, anche se forse nel precedente le cose erano più movimentate. Se L'Assiro era il libro della prima giovinezza di Tiglath, spensierata per quanto potesse esserlo, il secondo è più amaro. Per fortuna c'è Kephalos!Nuovi personaggi, vecchi nemici, guerre a destra e a manca, sicari ma la cosa più bella è che [...]

      The Blood Star is the sequel to The Assyrian, and continues the adventures of the exiled hero Tiglath Ashur as he travels through Egypt, Phoenicia, Greece, and Italy. This is grand melodrama of the first order, full of vivid battle scenes, devious plots, attempted assassinations, and surprising twists. Tiglath's complicated relationship with his brother the king is fascinating and doesn't necessarily move in expected directions. Both The Assyrian and The Blood Star have great cinematic potential [...]

      This is one case where the sequel far outshines the original novel -- The Assyrian. This novel describes Tiglath Ashur's years of exile from Nineveh, to Babylon, Egypt, Greece, and Sicily; then his reconciliation with his brother, the King of Assyria after seven years and his eventual return to Sicily. The story is written as a memoir by Tiglath Ashur, as an old man. I'm glad to say the author has toned down the graphic descriptions of sex and warfare, although punishments are still as cruel as [...]

      (Extracto de la reseña completa publicada en mi blog: cosasmiasjc/20)Una interesante y amena novela de aventuras que además puede leerse muy bien sin necesidad de haber leído la novela previa, El Asirio (de hecho, en mi caso habían pasado años entre una y otra, y ya apenas recordaba los detalles de la anterior). Una lectura recomendable tanto para amantes de la novela histórica como del género de aventuras (mucho más si os gustan ambos…).

      Here's a case of a book that really sat poorly with me the first time that I read it. I'm not sure why, and it must have had to do with the circumstances under which I read it. After rereading "The Assyrian" on kindle, I reread "The Blood Star" on a whim and absolutely loved it.As reading experiences go, it was nice to revise my opinion upward on a book that had previously counted as a major letdown for me.

      I really enjoyed this book. It had a different feel from the first book in the series but was equally entertaining. While book 1 focused on Ninevah the second book reads like tour around the Mediterranean Sea. The characters remained interesting and I was sorry to final finish the novel. Overall I thought this was a great series

      This is the sequel to Guild's "The Assyrian." Being one of his fans, I enjoyed this book and wish he had not stopped writing. There was supposed to be a third book to follow "The BloodStar" and quite a disappointment when I learned he stopped writing.If you love good action, deep thought, and fantastic writing, then read "The Assyrian" first then "The Bloodstar." Superb writing.

      It was a nice read, may be not as good as the Assyrian but the book still managed to keep me interested to the last page.A strong character, an amazing epoch and a great adventure, the are not many historical novels to compare with the story of Tiglath Ashur.

      As with the 1st book of this series, the editing was disgraceful. The spelling and grammatical errors could be somewhat distracting at times. Having said that, Guild's writing is top shelf. His ability to connect the reader to the characters is 1st rate he just needs to find a new editor.
