This review is from: The Hammer (Paperback)
If there is one thing that you can tell, it's a KJ Parker novel, the writing style, the prose and the dialogue all scream this author and to be honest you know what you're going to get, a story with guts, glory and above all else a principle character facing not only personal dilema's but also overcoming the odds to succeed.
Its definitely beautifully written, the characters vibrant and above all else a dialogue style that really is enjoyable so much so that you feel that you know the principle player pretty well. Back that up with a reasonably paced tale backed up with an established history (The Company) and you know that it's a title that really will fulfil all the promise of the book blurb.
