Book Description

13 May 2010 Death's Head (Book 3)

Lieutenant Sven Tveskoeg is in disgrace. His victory on Hekati, and the emperor's favour, have turned his patron against him: General Indigo Jaxx wants Sven dead. Exiled to Wildeside, Sven waits for Jaxx's assassin. He hunts, he fieldstrips his weapons, he tries not to mind. At the age of 28, he's lived longer than he expected anyway.

But then Sven finds himself offering to save the life of Jaxx's son. This means returning to Farlight, where he finds that the emperor is missing, his empire is collapsing, there are murderous riots in the capital and General Jaxx stands on the edge of ruin. All Sven has to do is nothing. But when has he ever done anything that sensible...

The devil-may-care, not quite 100% human, mercenary soldier/killing machine known as Lieutenant Sven Tveskoeg and his like-minded team, the Aux, are back in a third explosive, non-stop action-filled adventure.

5.0 out of 5 stars wow-brill! 27 April 2013
By Phil Mc
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Picked up the 1 st Death's Head (1 of 3) in a charity shop and by the time I was half way through it was on Amazon ordering the 2nd and 3rd in the series.
Most enjoyable romp I’ve read in ages!
The books are basically about an incorrigible, tough soldier, set into a future universe, and his journey, told in the first person, through several battlefields and situations.
All three are a great read if you like tons of fast paced action. Very easy to read and I went through all three books in less than a week- a bit disappointed now though because there does not appear (at least on Amazon) to be any more in the same series, or any other books (apart from something about a Ray Gun??!!) from the same author.
So come on Mr Gunn, get crackin with the 4 th book in the series, I want to know what happens next! (and a 5th and 6th please...)
Highly recommend.

2.0 out of 5 stars The worst of the lot... 5 Dec 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I quite liked the first installment, was disappointed by the second one, and didn't like the third. I almost rated it one star, but refrained because there were a few good ideas, although poorly used or even not exploited at all. The idea of a civil war breaking out and the character of General Luc are quite good. Unfortunatly, both seems to have been plucked out of thin air, with little or no explanations provided as to the whys (why the Civil War, to begin with?), and whos (who is allied against who and why?) and how come (neither Octo V nor any of his generals seem to have seen anything coming?). We don't even know what happened to Octo V. Is he "dead" or not?

As usual for me, Gunn's minimalist writting style and lame dialogues are not enough to make a good story or, rather, to mask the utter lack of a credible story. Neither is the talking Gun. Some bits, such as the last stand of one of the characters (I won't be more specific because I don't want to come up with spoilers) and the insurrection within the capital city, are not bad, but they cannot compensate for the other flaws.

As usual also, what passes for the story just drops of, making you wonder if there is going to be yet another sequel. Should this be the case, I might be reluctant to buy it...

3.0 out of 5 stars problematic but not a dead end 12 Sep 2011
By Jake 7
The 3rd book in the series delivers just as much action and gore as the first two with a dark and witty monologue from Sven.
As much as I enjoyed reading this series, the 3rd book quite simply had a lot of gaps.

After the first two addictive and fun books, it is wise to completely lower your expectations, otherwise like myself, you'll finish the last book feeling disappointment due to:

- limited clarification of what happens to main characters.
- lack of closure.
- Anti climax.

Sven's nemesis in this book, Luc (Wolf), goes from being a fully fledged character to someone who is suddenly de-prioritized and his future is summed up by maximum a few sentences.

Therefore, the 3rd book is a flop in my opinion, however, in my humble opinion, I still give full credit to David Gunn who has created an awesome character. The general feeling I get from this book is that the author either ran our of energy, time or had a deadline to get this finished. If these barriers are removed, I'd still be the first in line to read a prequel or sequel.

Thanks again for hours of hypnotic reading Mr Gunn!

4.0 out of 5 stars Gunn fires on Target 4 July 2009
By Gareth Wilson - Falcata Times Blog TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
As a huge fan of David's writing I can pretty much be found ignoring the TBR pile whenever a favoured author lands. Even if I'm part way though a novel some authors just speak to me and taunt me to get on with their book. David is one of those for me so on a warm summers day with a bottle of my favourite beer I settled onto the lawn for a little read. What unfurled was a tale that really did draw your breath away as you never knew what was going to happen as the tale continued in its own way. Think futuristic Sven Hassell and you've pretty much got a good idea of the type of book that you'll be getting and then add a ton of ammo, a huge amount of explosives and you might get a better idea of what there is. Sven is pretty uncomplicated which is more than can be said for the world around him, he's like the proverbial bazooka, point and shoot and keep clear of the danger zone. Great military action in this Hard Boiled futuristic adventure.
