This is like the witcher novels. It has very similar themes and the hero is, once again alone fighting terrible monsters. But there is something which raises it above the sword and Sorcery novels we see too much of. I would recommend this as a change of pace from other fantasy epics. There is something different about William King`s writing which makes me want to investigate his other books.

Someone whose review I had read made a comparison with Robert E Howard's Conan books. I think that was misleading. William King's first introduction to us of his hero Kormak is starkly different, given that both characters are written within the heroic fantasy genre, I could not join the dots in any straight line between Kormac and Conan. Kormac is highly educated and trained to fight Demons and evil from youth. Conan was more muscle and endurance than educated skill, his combat with sorcery and evil was haphazard not sought. Kormac belongs to an order who are akin to Witch finder Generals, having taken oaths to cleans the face of the earth of the unholy. The language William King uses is erudite, he has the knack of using the very correct word in the right place, I found my Kindle Fire dictionary app useful on several occasions. It’s a fast moving tale, which kept me enthralled and seemed over all too soon, and yes I wanted more. My only criticism was a lack of character development with some of the side characters our hero meets and makes love to along the way. If you have read the stories of Elfric, he too acquires many a side kick, but we get to know more and care more about them before they are disposed of. I felt Mr King tended to burn through some potentially interesting characters long before I knew enough to care. But apart from that criticism it was good read.

I loved this book. It has it all - body stealing ancient spirit, wolfmen, evil sorcerers, good swordplay and a stalwart hero! This feels like a pulp swords & sorcery novel, its not full on REH ("pantherish thews" etc) it is perhaps more like Karl Edward Wagner's Kane stories in tone (with added Orcs!).
I intend to read more of the Kormak saga.

I remain a huge fan of William King's writing, and this book has only added to my admiration of him. This is an episodic tale of a man hunting a demon, a chase that takes him through many lands and forces him to encounter a number of troubles. It is well written, concise, and despite the short nature of the stories contained in the book, it is very vivid.

The only reason I have not given this book five stars is that I found the stories a touch formulaic. I noticed a pattern to what happened (which I won't go into detail over since it would mean leaving spoilers!) that, by the last story, became mildly irritating. However, I will be looking for more of Kormak's tales in the near future.

As a fan of William Kings Gotrek and Felix stories I was keen to try his work outside the world of warhammer and see what he would come up with on his own. Unfortunately I was disappointed by this book, the character of Kormak pales in comparison to his characters in the Slayer series. It's a bog standard adventure story with nothing really special to make it stand out. Perhaps this being the first in the series they improve later on but based on this first book I don't plan to continue reading this series. In short, it was an average story.

It's been quite some time since I read a William King book. It was very reminiscent at times of the early Gotrek and Felix stories, which can surely only be a good thing.

It was free too, so that's always a draw and I have enjoyed it enough to go and shell out some of my hard earned pence on the next instalment in the series.

Another fine book from Mr King, ever since his early warhammer books I have enjoyed his writing style, smooth and flowing. Creates amazing characters that fly off the page an into reality. Can almost see my own breath misting before me as we follow the protagonist on his mountainous adventure!

Another good start to a series by William King. Having read earlier books by this author, I was looking forward to reading this story. Again there's a good selection of characters and another good story line. I'm looking forward to reading the next books in this series.
