I re read these this year after 25 years or so I read Fire From Heaven for my book group and this is my favourite of the three books It covers Alexander s early life his challenging relationships with his parents and how he becomes king of Macedonia Unlike many biographies it doesn t sit on the fence over Alexander s sexuality and emphasizes that although we have a different understanding of sexuality now his most meaningful relationship was with his lover Hephaistion The Persian Boy the second volume deals with his journeys across Asia the many battles he engaged and the final years of his life It is told from the perspective of Bagoas a Persian eunuch and also Alexander s lover Bagoas can be annoying and self centered at times but his devotion to Alexander is clear and he should be forgiven as he has had rather a rough time of it to say the least The final book Funeral Games covers the years following Alexander s death and the power struggles that resulted from his un timely passing An easy recommendation for anyone interested in Alexander or are fed up with the lack of ueer characters portrayed in historical books or just want to read a well written series of literary novels
