A disappointment for me.,
This review is from: Ashes of a Black Frost: Book Three of the Iron Elves (Iron Elves 3) (Paperback)OK, I'm going to be honest here, this is a book I resisted reading for a little while. Firstly because I didn't think much to the first one but whilst the second book did pick up, I still wasn't overly enamoured with series after I'd been enjoying the Elven exploits by James Barclay in his new Elves series.
Sadly for me the third book really didn't do anything, it felt more like a filler with no real destination and whilst it was the culmination of the whole series it was a damp squib rather than the huge explosion that should have occurred almost as if the author lost where they were going and was just trying to put anything together to fulfil the contract. Add to this a rather poor taste is humour, a sad lack of pace and when added to disappointing characters made this a book that I really wish I hadn't bothered with.

Whilst a relative newcomer to the genre and not having read book 3, I really do take issue with the reviewer regarding the other two books. I found both to be attention griping reads especially the first, almost on a par with a Cornwell! Now that's a complement.
