The story is a bit slow at the start but to be fair, the author is introducing both his world and his key characters. It's like when you view a pilot for a new TV show, the first hour is usually spent setting the scene and can be quite boring. Once past the first couple of chapters I was really interested in our Scriber and his problems.
I can only say this book has been a delightful surprise and for once I am disappointed that it is not part of a trilogy! That said, the ending is quite good and not left up in the air. In fact I completely forgot about the prologue which I reread at the end.
I loved the flawed Scriber Dennon Lark and the Amazonian like Bryndine Errynson and her heroic and devoted women. I cheered with them and cried with them and as the remaining pages became less and less, I just wanted the book to keep going and going.
Don't just take my word for it, buy it and enjoy 'Scriber' yourself.
Another author to look out for. Well done Mr Dobson.
Then at about 8% in it suddenly started flying up and in the end i didnt want it to finish. I really did grow attached to the man who hides under tables when everyone else is fighting. It did turn out to be a good book and well worth the 4 to 5 stars it keeps getting, well worth a read for anyone yet to spend the £2 on it. I for one will be looking for the authors next book.
I have really enjoyed reading this, and I have found myself picking it up whenever I had a moment to spare this week. It's a very satisfying read. The characters are well drawn and the storyline is well rounded. Also, the author makes a good decision in letting his characters move great distances without us having to watch every journey. It means the story is fast paced and never tedious. I look forward to there being a sequel set in the same world.
I was hooked from start to finish. A very well written story which was well paced throughout.
I'm another one who's going to keep an eye open for more books from this author.
Simply put, the book reads well and I don't think there was a dull moment. The author is good at making characters memorable, even those without much dialogue.
It was a good length and like some other reviewers have said, it would be great to hear some of the back stories of some of the women mercenaries!
I don't like to ramble so I will say this is a great story, with a well thought out and creative world, and would be a fine addition to any fantasy readers list. You will not be disappointed.
I didn't want to put this book down, so much so I read it in a day. Easily one of the best books you'll read.
