Similarly, it's no coincidence either that all the best fantasy centres around interesting characters. The Siege of Talonrend is no different: the characters have their own unique voice. What struck me most about them -- sticking with the fantasy-comparison thing I have going on here -- is that they had a degree of complexity to their motivations that I find, unfortunately, lacking elsewhere sometimes. Gravlox and Vorst especially interested me here.
The story is interesting and develops well, with excellent pacing that builds until it moves a hundred miles an hour at the end. I won't spoil any part of it, but I will say that the end, the last few chapters, were -- to me -- the best part of the book. They were quick, they were exciting, and, having read them, I couldn't wait to read the next book. And that's exactly what I will do.
On the whole I liked the characters but the violence portrayed reminded me of the games my 16 year olds played on their PS2s.
So whilst I won't bother with the next book if you love gory films/games set in a fantasy world this is the book for you.
