I'd just finished some pretty far out Moorcock (War Amongst The Angels) when I read this so I was shocked by how grounded the novel is, surely Constantine's influence! The story is well structured with a great gothic atmosphere and some great 3 dimensional characters though the plot, while very well thought out, is your average "find all the magical artifacts" quest. The book isn't bogged down with to many references to every other Moorcock book while it does take the Rose from Blood etc. which I found very refreshing. A great combination of writing talent and a very enjoyable book.

Apart from being fantasy writers, Moorcock and Constantine don't have that much in common -- except a certain uncommon sensibility. They both write like people who not only believe in the supernatural but have experienced and enjoyed the supernatural. It's hard to put your finger on, but I think I'm right (and I'm not a loony, honestly) -- they describe worlds they know and magic they understand. But they are not 'pushing' magic -- they are discussing it, working out how it works and how you handle it. These are a sort of Harry Potter Course in Magic 101 by two skilled masters of their craft. Old-fashioned tale-telling at its finest. While not set in the familiar multiverse of Moorcock's other books, the story of the Lords of the Metal and Max Silverskin's conflict with them -- they are both trying to save Karadur, the city -- also makes a nice change. There are no 'totally evil' villains in this -- though a couple of nasty bullies -- and it is more like real life in that the characters all agree there's a problem but disagree on the solution. Needless to say, there's a slam bang ending and all is redeemed and understood by the end. High class grown up fairy story with a bit of moral bite.

These are two writers I wouldn't normally think of as being similar and maybe it is their differences which make this such a surprisingly good read.
I like both writers and this is a combination of the two -- it's set in Moorcock's multiverse, has typical Moorcock characters and a good, tight, if slightly conventional plot, and it has Constantine's subtleties of character and motivation. An excellent read for fans of both writers.

All I can say is WOW!! This has the best of Moorcock and the best of Constantine. A great plot, wonderful characters, tremendously well-imagined world. Very likeable characters -- even most of the villains. Totally different from anything either writer has done before and yet you can't imagine any other two writers producing this novel. Great, great, great!

This really does combine the virtues and few of the vices of both Moorcock and Constantine. To be honest, I enjoyed this a lot more than I have enjoyed books by the individual writers (though I haven't read them all). A very unusual quality to it. Moorcock's aggression mixed with Constantine's more contemplative attitude ? But I'd really recommend this book to fantasy fans -- its fresh and its different and it has a great, resounding ending!

I used to love Michael Moorcock, when I was in my teens, so I thought I'd give this a go.

The characters do draw you in somewhat, but the invented world is not believable and the "history" of this world even less so.

It does not seem to have been edited well either. In one short paragraph "greenish" appeared three times. I'd got the idea the first time.

I enjoy escapism, but this is awful.

Maybe I should try the old Mookcock books again.
