Book Description

"The King of High Adventure," Starlog.

"Immediately convincing, classically brooding," Steve Tompkins,


To the world at large, he is a mercenary and assassin, a brutal killer with a deadly blade. In reality Kormak is a Guardian, one of an ancient order sworn to protect humanity from the servants of the gathering darkness.

Kormak is a sword and sorcery hero in the tradition of Conan, Solomon Kane and Druss the Legend, a driven man with a mission to hunt down the ancient demons who slaughtered his family. His fast-paced, action-packed adventures take him from one end of his richly detailed fantasy world to the other.


The survivors of a burned out village set Kormak and a crew of bounty hunters on the trail of the pirate known only as the Kraken. The hunt leads from the haunted ruins of a cursed city to the buccaneer stronghold of Port Blood and reaches a bloody conclusion far beneath the waves of the ocean. For the Kraken is a sorcerer with a deadly secret and he plans to waken the most powerful demon of the ancient world.


Each book in the Kormak series is a standalone adventure. They can be read in any order but build into an epic picture of the career of the world’s greatest monster hunter. So far the series consists of the following books.

Stealer of Flesh
Defiler of Tombs
Weaver of Shadow
City of Strife
Taker of Skulls

5.0 out of 5 stars Avast, Spawn of Evil! 8 May 2014
By Michael Mooney VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
There's something about putting a Hero on a ship which brings out the best in him. Kormak finds his sea legs, pursues a pirate, shivers many timbers and meets a strangely familiar evil beneath the waves (strangely familiar to those of us who've read his Terrach Chronicles, anyway).

Sorceres, pirates, holy men, swashbuckling, mer-women.. What are you waiting for?

5.0 out of 5 stars A great read 16 May 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
One of my favourite Kormak novels so far: the locations were atmospheric and vividly brought to life, the narrative had a good pace to it: fast and gripping but never rushed, and the central characters were an interesting bunch. Those are things that can be said for pretty much all of William King's stories, but this one is especially well put together. I particularly enjoyed the sense of discovery and the unraveling of secrets in this novel.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Swashbuckling Success 12 May 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Once more King excels himself in what is possibly his finest Kormak novel to date. As always the novel is filled with the gritty, fast paced action King is so good at, however this time we learn more of Kormak and what makes this superlative warrior tick. An absolute must read for all fans of William King.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lovecraft meets Kormak 1 Aug. 2014
By dabugbear - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was a great read. Overall, the removal of Normal from his natural element made for some added drama, which was nicely done.

Perhaps my only complaint with this book is that Kormak seemed a little too... fallible. Not that he really is infallible, but he seemed more unsure than usual, and I generally like my hulking swordsmen in the vein of Conan - sure of their skill, and ready to display it at need.
4.0 out of 5 stars These stories would make very cool movies. That said 13 July 2014

I really wish we could see Kormak on the big screen! These stories would make very cool movies. That said, there seem to bea few more errors in this book than the others. All in all another good adventure for the Guardian.

5.0 out of 5 stars William King's Kormak Saga Continues 13 May 2014
By W. A. Graham - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The influence of Howard and Wagner in this latest Kormak adventure novel are obvious, but William King definitely puts his own stamp on the genre. Three points in particular keep me rushing back for more:

1. Kormak himself: He isn't Conan or Kane, Elric, Aragorn, etc. He's an interesting, tough, cynical, yet still idealistic, hero. Yes, he's courageous, but still knows fear and doubt - clinging to his duty as an anchor when things go seriously sideways. While loyal to his order, he's aware it isn't perfect. And always, there's that reminder that someday, a certain village-slaughtering Old One has promised to return for his head. King has created one of the very few "paladin" characters in fantasy fiction who isn't "awful-stupid." Doomed, but hopeful. Seriously flawed, but steadfast.

2. Sword & Sorcery storytelling, not world-building: Plenty of hints and references in each book serve to illustrate Kormak's world - making it feel rich and intriguing - without sinking into a traveller's guide/history text (the dreaded pages of fantasy exposition). Great mood & atmosphere - humanity is a late-comer to the world and those who came before were seriously weird.

3. The interplay between Kormak and the Old Ones: fantastic portrayal of non-human entities and how Kormak (who knows just enough to avoid assumptions) deals with them. Each encounter is different enough to be fresh and lend an added perspective.

If you have read other novels in the Kormak saga, all that needs to be said is this: Here's the latest, Kormak heads out to sea. If you haven't, you're in for a treat.
4.0 out of 5 stars Another great read by Mr. King. 26 Jan. 2015

I read his books from Black Library, recently finished BANE OF MALEKITH, last in the Tyrion & Teclis series. It's amazing how he keeps all of his characters from running into each other. I enjoy his books of GOTRIG & FELIX. My hero is still KORMAK, because there a lot of good short stories. Keep up the good work Bill.
