The heir to Gemmell?, 29 Aug. 2009
I was not impressed with the author's previous trilogy, but Kearny is certainly the King of Gritty Fantasy, and this is a return to form. He has a historical realism that I haven't read since Gemmell, and I would very much love to see more of this. A fine and fearless writer.
