This review is from: The Bloody Ground (The Starbuck Chronicles, Book 4) (Paperback)In spite of having rather repetitive plot-lines involving sinister types who hate our hero's insides and eventually fall by the way, these novels seem to improve as they go on. The characters, including the sinister, become more rounded. The battles are described with verve as you would expect from this author with not too much wallowing in gore. And yes you can read them at one sitting if you're not careful as they flow quite nicely. The running stories through the books are interesting and it's a great pity that the author seems to have tired of this series and they have petered out.
Perhaps you could give 'Sharpe' a rest Mr. Cornwell and have another crack at Captain Ahab?
