A ripping yarn!, 29 Oct 2012
Was really looking forward to this comming out as had thouroughly enjoyed book 1 and the authors prior trilogy - was certainly not disappointed, Weeks is a cracking writer who understands that for all the 'many shades of grey' brutal realism that seems to be so popular in modern fantasy (and dont get me wrong I also enjoy)what people really love in this genre is unbelievably powerful characters who do utterly amazing things, probably get the girl and almost certainly save the world in the process - add to that a great touch of comedy here and there (Kip in particular gets some great lines)and what you get with Weeks is a good old fashioned rip-roaring yarn! - couldn't put it down and was gutted when I hit the last page - hope the next one is well on its way Mr Weeks.
