More please nick morris!
Heavily influenced by the movie Gladiator, and the recent Spartacus tv series, if you are looking some immersive violence with the stereotypical gaul vs roman backdrop then this is the book for you
There was just one jar in the story for me; surprising given Mr Morris's impressive credentials as a martial artist. That was when the hero, having been speared in the chest by a hugely powerful man, grabs the spear shaft with one hand and manages to hold it so still that the beast of an opponent can neither drive the blade home nor pull it out. Hmmm.
Unfortunately, Mr Morris has been very ill served by the keyboard pixies at Kindle who have mangled the job of translating the text into fluent 'Kindle'. I lost count of the number of times 'worst' was used when 'worse' should have been. Mr Morris's fluidity of writing was jarred by the clumsy Kindle rendition. If I was NM I wouldn't bother complaining, I'd just go around there and rip off someone's head; it's a shame to waste all of that special forces experience.
If every author writes his first book about what he knows best, then I can see a history teacher, historical warfare buff and serious martial artist in War Raven. The authority shows. I just hope that Nick Morris can find another book in there somewhere because I would, certainly, buy it.
Will definately be reading any other books by this author and especially if they continue where this book ended.
