Product Description

Product Description

The King of High Adventure," Starlog.

"Immediately convincing, classically brooding," Steve Tompkins, TheCimmerian.com.

WHO IS KORMAK?

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 action-packed adventures take him from one end of his richly detailed fantasy world to the other.

THE KORMAK OMNIBUS

The Kormak Omnibus contains the first three novels, the short story Guardian of the Dawn and many extras such as a map of the Kingdoms of the Sun and the author’s notes for all of the stories. If you’ve never entered Kormak’s world of danger and excitement, here is the perfect opportunity to do so at a special bargain price.

GUARDIAN OF THE DAWN

In this chilling tale, Kormak seeks refuge for the night in an isolated peasant home only to find himself thrown into a terrifying confrontation with an ancient evil.

STEALER OF FLESH

The Ghul are the Stealers of Flesh, an ancient race of demons who possess the bodies of humans to work great evil. Now one of them has been freed from its ancient prison using Kormak's own dwarf-forged sword and the Guardian must pursue it to a haunted city on the edge of the world to end its reign of terror.

DEFILER OF TOMBS

An open tomb, a dead child and an unleashed ancient horror send Kormak on a path of vengeance through the haunted northlands of Taurea. He seeks Morghael, a necromancer with a plan for resurrecting the dark empire of Kharon and the power to bring the dead swarming back to life.

WEAVER OF SHADOW

War brews along the border of the Elvenwood. The prophet of an ancient evil has corrupted the nation of Mayasha, reducing the once proud elves to feral slaves of the Shadow. Allied with the monstrous Spider Folk she is poised to sweep away the human settlements in the ancient forests and spread her Blight across the lands. Only one man stands between her and absolute victory; Kormak.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sword and Sorcery Pulp Action - Variable Quality 20 Mar 2014
By wolf VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Imagine the worlds of R E Howard and J R R Tolkein thrown into a blender, then set stories in it with a touch of Howard, a whisper of Fritz Leiber and, perhaps, a soupcon of Clark Ashton Smith and you have an idea of what William King is up to here. When it works well, the results are truly excellent - it is like being transported back to reading these classics of fantasy when a teenager. Sadly, if not very surprisingly, it isn't all at that standard.

The opening short story is in the really very good category. Guardian of the Dawn introduces the central character, Kormak, his world and his quest. It is punchy and crisply told but manages to sketch a background that hints at much more. Best of all, it does more than simply provide the obvious. Kormak's duel with the enemy is not quite the one we might have expected. It is possibly the best thing in here.

The next book - really a collection of linked short stories - is rather less good. Stealer of Flesh has plenty of pulpy action but often indifferently told, although the stories do pick up after the first couple. The author's notes reveal that he wrote the last couple of short stories here first and then filled in the rest. It feels as if there was less interest in some of these stories that were designed to fill in the gaps.

The remaining two books - Defiler of Tombs and Weaver of Shadow - are proper novels, albeit short ones. One deals with necromancers and barrow wights, the other with elves and giant spiders. Both offer not only plenty of action but atmosphere and world building. Both provide entertainment. These two books most clearly show their roots in a specific sort of sword and sorcery style fantasy, for both good and bad.

3.0 out of 5 stars Kormak saga. 11 Aug 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
William king is a great author who can really inject alot of detail into a novel and yet can still retain a good pace of old school action. The kormak saga leans more towards action than detail and story padding, though you are often given enough back story to get by. Sometimes additional character's are a little 1D and a few things like fight scenes and surrounding descriptions are a little bit brief. All in all the kormak saga is fast paced and fun, a good enjoyable read. (Though why William did you ever stop writing the gotrek and Felix novels!).

5.0 out of 5 stars Almost Cimmerian in scope... 28 May 2013
By dabugbear - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Excellent through and through. The last book was the weakest, but still very worthy of praise. Highly recommended! More than one late night was spent just reading "one more chapter".
5.0 out of 5 stars I recommend this book without hesitation! 20 Dec 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com

My favorite line, "At that time he was the man who the boy he was had dreamed he would be." It sums up a lifetime of disappointment and triumph. Too often, fantasy characters either exist in a world so foreign that I can't relate to them or they are so rooted in the mundane that the fantasy element is lost.
The trend that David Gemmell began with his Legend and Waylander series is alive and well in Kormak and I love the idea of the warrior priest forging ahead in the face of overwhelming odds out of loyalty to an oath he took as a boy. The spirit of barbarian honor mixed with cynicism born of experience makes for a compelling character. Buy this book.
