Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Years ago, ten thousand Macht mercenaries marched into the heart of the Asurian Empire and were betrayed. Only a handful of survivors, led by the famous warrior Rictus, escaped to see home. In the years since then, Rictus has lived through times of peace and war, standing alongside the legendary Corvus as he forged the fractious Macht cities into a single nation. The Macht have now re-invaded the Empire, this time deploying new weapons and strategies that baffle their enemies. But their greatest ally is the division and turmoil that seethes in the heart of the Empire, as the imperial household is divided at the very moment it needs to unify against the invaders.

Kings of Morning is the third and concluding book in Paul Kearney's Macht sequence, which began with 2008's excellent The Ten Thousand and continued with 2010's even better Corvus. As with those books, Kings of Morning mixes fantasy with historical fiction and even a hint of SF: Kuf, the planet on which the books take place, is apparently an alien world and the Macht seem to be the descendants of human settlers/invaders, with the natives a notably different humanoid race. The influence of Alexander the Great on Corvus's story is clear, meaning the general trajectory of the plot can be a little predictable. However, Kearney mixes things up enough to ensure the story never gets stale.

Structurally, the novel is a little different to its two predecessors, which focused almost completely on Rictus's point of view. The opening quarter or so of the novel shows a political crisis within the heart of the Empire, as the brutish heir to the imperial throne, Kouros, and his younger brother engage in a bitter feud, with their father apparently unwilling to intervene.

This has a good core set of characters and some nice ideas, it doesn't feature many battles,
which is good since they hurt the previous book.

The enemy are portrayed intelligently with realistic motives and the intrigues are good.

The problem here is that the book often reads like a history text book, it moves away from characters to a dull description of events that makes it feel almost like a biography of Alexander The Great.

This doesn't make it a bad book but it is certainly easy to put down, you are never drawn into the story to the point where you need to see what happens next.

Workmanlike rather than special.

Third in the series and as far as I can tell there are no more yet. The story moves on from the previous novel in almost a straight line, I love the way Paul Kearney writes, its simply great work. if I were to try to explain a sea journey for our hero, I am sure it would be dull and exhaust my little knowledge of crossing oceans on a sail driven ship. Paul Kearney has absolutely researched and researched and uses probably only part of what he choice to learn in order to write in interesting details about such a voyage, and that is where he wins. I suspect a very small part of the information he acquires finds its way onto the page, but in taking the trouble to learn so much on my behalf, he manages to convey such wonderful images that I forget I don't really know as much as he and can easily set the scene in my head. The whole story moves forward and although the book comes to a climax, I feel the story is far from over, it is my hope that there will be more as I loved all three books, just great story telling, thank you Paul.

By Gareth Wilson - Falcata Times Blog TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 18 Mar. 2012
Format: Paperback
I've loved this fantasy series by Paul Kearney since the first outing a couple of years ago. The action is fast and hard hitting which when backed with solid writing, a decent plot line and of course a whole host of characters that bring the Greek's Vs Persians to a fantasy world, really gives the reader a real tale of guts and glory as they wend their way into history.

The writing has great pace, the characters flaws and when backed with Paul's understanding of what a fantasy reader wants in a story, makes this a title that's hard to not only put down but finish as a number of the characters have become readers friends throughout their exploits. Finally add to the mix some wonderful dialogue backed with a great sense of timing and all in it's a great conclusion to a cracking series.

Paul Kearney is an author who meticulously ensures that the plot, the characters , the characters interactions, countries, in fact the whole deal is without error or fault.. If you see any of his books it will be a flawless, thought provoking read. As may be obvious I feel that he is an outstanding writer in his field. I would like to think that if you haven't read anything by him my review will encourage you to take the plunge and I would like to hope that you also will become a long term admirer.
