This review is from: Gentlemen of the Road (Hardcover)
The subtitle to "Gentlemen of the road" is 'a tale of adventure' which is exactly what it is, and it's dedicated to Michael Moorcock, which is very telling too. Fabled lands of ancient history (where you can never really that what is fact and what is fiction), a pair of very different but both extremely likeable heroes and a host of colourful other characters, cities under siege and relentless pursuits on horseback... it's all there and very well done too. The language is at times difficult but ultimately shows how rich the English language is and to what great effect it can be used.
This book made me feel like I was twelve again and discovering for the first time Ivanhoe, Tarzan, or Verne's novels, reading them entranced and feeling, for the duration of the novel, how grand it must be to live a adventurer's life ;-)
