I must say I had found the previous instalment in this series a disappointment, it was only the fact that this was the last book and belief that the author must eventually be going somewhere with this series that kept me reading. While I did find this book slightly better in terms of plot development I was nonetheless left very disappointed. For one thing the true climax of the book comes several chapters before the finish, leaving things to trail off toward an unsatisfactory ending. But the real disappointment was with the characters, with the author having established them reasonably well initially in book one I felt that neither Rudi nor Hanna was given the chance to develop in the way they should have been. Personally I wasn't satisfied with the ending given to either of them. Furthermore it felt at the end as though the outcome for each of them was predestined from the very start and that neither character had any power to avoid it or change it. To sum up: tedious and depressing.
What is the front cover about? Nowhere in the book did I read about a deadly horseman. Instead, the main protaganists spend most of their time messing about on a river. There was a slight improvement when they eventually docked at a city, but then it ground on to a tedious, yet depressing conclusion.
I had no sympathy with the lead character. He struck me as a complete moron. I don't want to spoil the book for anyone, but you have to ask yourself (as a man)what would you choose: a gorgeous young woman - or life imprisonment?
I was left asking myself what the point of this exercise was? 2 stars, because it's better than a lot of the tripe my wife shovels onto the coffee table.
Middle of the pack, not the best Warhammer series but not the worst either.
