Too good to miss,
This review is from: Corvus (Macht Trilogy 2) (Paperback)
Having loved Paul's Ten Thousand, I really couldn't wait to embark on another novel set in the lands of the Macht. When this title landed after girding myself and preparing my own baggage train (hey I got a 2 litre bottle of Dandelion and Burdock and a selection of Sandwiches) I settled down to see what would befall the Dogshead.
What you get with Kearney is a story told at a blistering pace with graphic battle sequences, decent dialogue and above all else cracking characterisation with a Spartan descriptive style so that the reader knows that theirs no extra padding. In short a title that is combat fit with a hard toned literal wall of muscle that will kick the hell out of a lot of other titles on the shelves.
All in I loved this book which was a welcome escape from the real world into a clearer black and white one of the fantasy ilk. Great stuff.
