In this cold land, winters last much to long, and kings freeze to death in their castles waiting for the great dragons to take pity on their people.
which of course they never do.
Some men take things into their own hands. Such as soon king Therian, sorcerer in a land where his father the king has banished such, to rekindle the sun.
But how many souls will it take to feel the warmth beat down on their backs once more?
An amazing read. Very old school swords and sorcery.
And the whole series costs less then a fastfood meal.
Zogorath for one will be continuing this series.
A lot of dull slashing and beheading, very little plot and I finished it mainly because it was so short so a quick read.
I have read (or rather abandoned) worse but this is never going to be in my top ten.

Although this novella and the series overall is darker in tone than some of his other novels; for me, it just came down to not being able to really care for the two main characters that much ( I liked Gruum more so than Therian). I also found it difficult to get too caught up in the overall story. I think for me this is primarily due to the novella approach and not being able to give each character and the story enough time to develop. It felt a little rushed and disjointed to me. Mr. Larson did spell out to his readers from the get go what to expect from a novella. I appreciate that, but it didn't take away the overall lack of interest I had following Therian on his exploits.
The book was still good, so I do look forward to reading the next books in the series.
Would recommend to anyone who likes dark fantasy/sci fi.
If you're looking for happy unicorns and rainbows you won't find it here. Mr Larson described it as dark and it is.
P.S. if you are old enough to be aquainted with and fans of Frits Leiber and Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser you need to give this a try.
I'm concerned with the direction towards 'epic snuff fantasy'.
Perhaps this should be categories as 'vampire fantasy', as that will be more likely to get the right reader demographic, even if it's not fully descriptive of the book's content.
I appreciate two things about this book:
1) Main character's motivation was clear and compelling, even though his necromancy leaves a dark taste.
2) Character/author limited the wanton carnage to ostensible 'bad guys' rather than descending into a free-for-all of wanton slaughter, which would've really made the character irredeemable.
