A quality read
on 7 July 2016
I will be honest prior to reading this book I had never heard of this author but having bought an Amazon Fire having previously always been an hardcopy reader, I was looking to download some books to give it a try.
Amazon being Amazon were quick to offer some suggestions, and I selected half a dozen at the excellent price of nothing yes Free, but there's a famous saying there is no such thing as a free meal, well in my case as an avid reader there is no such thing as a free book. Yes the books were completely free, but having read The Destroyer with its nail biting cliff hanger ending I have since ordered at a cost book 2.
Likewise having read and thoroughly enjoyed this book I have since ordered the complete trilogy as this worked out better value than just buying the two remaining books.
This is a quality read almost non stop action, and be warned those of a nervous disposition some quite graphic violence, the characterisation vivid with a real sense of time and place you can almost touch.
This book is right up there with similar offerings in this genre such as Giles Kristian's "RAVEN" series, Robert Low's "Oathsworn" series and Bernard Cornwell's "Uhtred" series, and as such I highly recommend it.
