1.0 out of 5 stars A very bad David Gemmell copy, 22 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: King of Kings (Kindle Edition)
It is one thing to write a book in the style of a successful author, but it is quite another to plagiarise plot and characters, and then to threaten at least two more sequels which will no doubt continue in the same vein. This is a shameless copy of a well-respected author without any Gemmell's humour, pace, balance (or length). There is the Druss character (heroic axeman), the old bowman and his equally old smelly giant of a friend, the bard who has no battle skills but who finds his character in adversity, two swords (one gold one silver) with magical powers, an evil king, an evil witch woman, a scheming advisor, an unwilling rebel leader - every single person in this book has been lifted directly from Gemmell's novels and sometimes not even the names have been changed dramatically.

Even were the above not too patently true, the quality of the grammar and editing are so bad as to make the mere act of reading it a continual irritation. Connell clearly has no idea what an apostrophe is or where to use it. His plot lines exude laziness. Buster is ten years old on one page and then twelve on the next. A fortress is full of provisions but short on weapons on one page and then the reverse is true three pages on - soon after that there appears to be neither food nor weapons. Had I not been stuck on a train, this one would have been for the archive bin in short measure. Don't buy this - buy the infinitely superior originals.

1.0 out of 5 stars The Tea Party made flesh, 12 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A badly written, dreadfully edited and frankly nasty little book whose purpose is not to tell a tale but to indulge in a long and boring rant on the Godlike qualities of those who have served in the armed forces, the worthlessness of everyone else, the relatively benign outcome of all out nuclear war and the benefits to be gained from reworking the US constitution to rid it of those inconvenient checks and balances.

It is the Tea Party in literature - it will be very popular with rednecks, neocons and proto-fascists.

1.0 out of 5 stars Complete rip-off, 12 Aug 2013

It's not a book, it's only fifty pages of meandering illiterate musings. I'm amazed Amazon even accepted it and it certainly needs a brevity warning.
