Book Description

5 Jun 2008 Godless World
As ever greater battles are fought between the Black Road and the True Bloods, so each side in the conflict becomes ever more riven by internal dissent and disunity. Amidst the mounting chaos, Aeglyss the na'kyrim gradually masters the remarkable powers that have been unleashed upon him by his crucifixion. Twisting everything and everyone around him to serve his own mad desires, he begins to exert a dangerous, insidious influence over the course of events both near and far. Orisian, lord of the ruined Lannis Blood, faces not only the consequences of that malign influence, but also the machinations of his supposed allies and the stirring of the long-dormant Anain, the most potent race the world has ever known.

4.0 out of 5 stars Choice fantasy... 14 Sep 2009

I'll keep this short and sweet...

I admire the style of this writer, as he provides a lot of atmosphere that is lacking in some of the fantasy that I've read. The two first books have a very 'dark' style and make you wonder how a 'happy' ending will be possible, if at all!!!

That's why I've just ordered the last book! Can't wait to read it!

4.0 out of 5 stars plenty of tension and grit 22 Aug 2009
What we have here is a quite a simple novel, but a rollicking read anyway. its probably very much in the same manner as Gemmell, which is no bad thing. Solid characters, without much finesse but that's cool. Not much of a wide-range of emotions - what you see is what you get. Plenty of tension and lots of grittiness. Battles are some of the better in the genre today - much better than Abercrombie's, and with some crafty plotting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bloodheir - Bloody Fantastic 18 April 2009
Bloodheir is Brian Ruckley's second volume in the Godless world trilogy and it takes off where the first book left. The story centres around Orisian oc Lannis-Haig, now thane of the ruined Lannis Blood Clan, who have been brutally slain by the invading Black Road Armies.

This book is very very good, the writing is much tighter, the characters are fleshed out favourite being Taim Narran and Mordyn Jerain. The grim setting gives this book an air of realism, the battle scenes towards the end of the story are well written and pull you further into the story.

You begin to see the story and the world created open up more, and I was fascinated by the different cultures...some influence from Scottish Highland Clans and (David Gemmell's Rigante series) one reviewer already mentioned this and I have to agree...I was just swept away.

Towards the end of the book you get the feeling that no character good or bad is safe...and I especially liked Mordyn Jerain...I just wished he had a bigger part in this book.

As ever Ruckley leaves the ending on a cliff-hanger, at least I don't have to wait too long to find out what happens.
