Top Customer Reviews
These books are a breath of fast cold air, the description in the violence scenes really hits the bone and the characters are very likeable, and that involves Haskeer. One of the most enjoyable set of books I've read recently, Stan Nicholls has his own brand of writing, if i could describe it in 2 words I'd say FAST & FURIOUS.
As for the writing itself, I found it clumsy, derivative to the point of the cliche, and I'm afraid to say, virtually adolescent. I give you one of endless examples of this dreadful prose and rest my case:
"She took his manhood in her hands..."
The fantasy genre is replete with badly written books.
Did we really need another?
Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
Such a shame, because I was getting used to Stryke and his comrades... Clearly Stan decided halfway the book to put an end to it, because the end is rather rude...
Did I mind? No... we don't need another endless Wheel of Time series :-)
The book, as its two prequels is fastpaced and reads like lightning (mum said it was a waste of money to have me read it in one day! :-))
I hope Stan will do a follow up on Stryke and his warband in the realm of Orcs... or have a spin of on Jup (the dwarve) at least!!
