Thank god for Poldarn, 5 Mar 2002
Can I just say thank you to KJ Parker for writing this absolutely stunning book. It is one of the most imaginative, colourful books I've read. His scene don't just come to life, they stay with you forever. It's as if Parker lives in his books to bring them to life. Most books you read, you are with them for a short while and then forget what happened (If they aren't memorable) SHADOW will be in your thoughts forever.
From page one, where Poldarn wakes up on the aftermath of the battlefield, this book twists and turns with the age old theme of amnesia. An absolutely superb fantasy book.
However, I was not too pleased with the ending. But, I told myself it's not the ending, more or less the start to the next adventure.
Bring on PATTERN.
