cast of thousands but pretty good,
This review is from: Herald of the Storm (Steelhaven: Book One) (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
It took me a little while to get into this, there are a lot of characters to get used to but then it all comes together rather nicely.
Set in a capital city, everything is chucked into the mix that you can imagine from the genre. Assassins, magic, thieves guild, gnarled old warriors, female warriors, impending hoards of bad guys, slavers, court politics etc etc. But once you get used to the assault to your senses and remembering who is who, this is actually pretty good. The characters grow on you, the plot comes together and before you know it you are churning through the pages and are sad when you come to the end.
First in a series (and an impressive debut I thought) and I am looking forward to the next one.
