5.0 out of 5 stars A great read. 20 May 2010
By Nimst3r
I couldn't take my hands off this book from start to finish, so absorbing that you felt that you were actually there, the characters events and the description of the surroundings were so real.
I'll be reading more from this author in the future, that's for sure.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fantastic Read! 4 May 2009
This book was a fantastic read from beginning to end. Wiliam Meikle is an absolutely wonderful storyteller. I couldn't put this book down. The story, the action, the descriptive prose are all first class. The settings and characters are totally believable, and I found myself drawn into a fantastic world, where magic, vampires, battles, epic journeys and all manner of goodies were spread before me on the page. I felt as though I was there in the middle of the story, such is William Meikle's skill as a writer.

William Meikle should be more widely known as a fiction author, not just as a horror/fantasy writer.

I loved this book, and I can't recommend it strongly enough. It is an awesome read. Well done Mr Meikle. You have a new loyal reader.

I just finished reading William Meikle's "The Watchers Omnibus. I was amazed at this book on several levels. It is quality historical fiction that ties the fictionalized plot into the time period quite thoroughly. It is also a first rate horror novel, replete with heart stopping horror scenes. Furthermore, it is an outstanding action adventure book. The battle scenes are meticulously detailed. In addition, it is a superbly detailed fantasy novel. The fantasy elements are detailed to such an extent that they have their own history that dovetailed with the true history of the world.

All in all, this is a wonderful book. I'll never be able to view the word "Other" in quite the same way again. (:>

The character development was superb. Both heroes and villains have detailed histories.

The one negative comment I would make concerning this book relates to the backstory of the author's "Others." One of the characters in the book does state that the "Others" are notorious liars, and that character classified their story as blasphemy. And for that reason I don't think the author is out to change anyone's perception of the biblical account of Christianity. I thought long and hard about the matter before posting this review. I just can't see dropping a star because of the author's chosen path of creating a backstory for his villains. Indeed, some might say this it is one of the strongest points of the overall book. I don't share that opinion. But that's just one man's opinion. And in the final analysis, I asked myself if I would have been as drawn into the story as I was had the author not utilized that troubling storyline. In all honesty, I don't think I would have.

I highly recommend this read. It's a shame it's not available on Kindle.
