This review is from: Heroes Die: The Acts of Caine: Book 1 (Kindle Edition)
There have been a number of new fantasy heroes in recent year that are entertaining and faithful to the best authors in the genre(s). Heroes Die took me out of this pleasant comfort zone, grabbed me by the throat, and kept me going until I had finished the novel. Interesting, different, brave, bleak. The novel may not be for everyone, but you will remember it and will appreciate giving Caine a run. Haven't enjoyed a first novel so much since Gardens of the Moon, Empire of Black and Gold or The Lies of Locke Lamora. Distinctive to all these books, darker, less redemption, but just for a few hours took me on a journey that I just did not expect to enjoy so much. Memorable. Kept expecting a book happy to walk the middle ground instead got a path rarely followed. Adult entertainment highly recommended - give it a go, you will at least remember the attempt.
