Shield Of Thunder, 25 April 2007
When I first bought the book I was a bit dubious in reading such a large novel, however I thought this book was fantastic. The storyline is not exhaustative (like other books of a similar depth)and Gemmell does really well in transporting the reader into the time the book is set. His descriptive narrative of battle scenes and his ability to portray the feelings and actions of all the characters ensured I emphasised greatly with the characters emotions. His characters Banokles and Kalliades are fantastic, their mixture of jovial bluntness and childish wims had me laughing out load.
I am not normally a book lover but have nothing but positive comments to make. I didnt want to put the book down have already bought the first book in the Triology and cant wait for the final one to come out. Would highly recommed this book.
