Not my usual read...
on 7 February 2014
I don't tend to read work like this. Historical fantasy and me butt heads a lot but we worked well together on this. What a great read! Loved the fact it had recognisable characters in the story, well known characters from history and mythology.
I admit it starts off slow and it feels like a young persons story but please, give it a chance. The story fleshes out really well and gets you gripped, turning into a well written, in depth read.
Do not be put off by previous reviews about too much "bad language", as there isn't any to be overly concerned with and the language suits the characters. If I had to mention the "worst" word used then I'd say it was the word 'crap'. Judge that word as you please but I don't think it's worth getting upset about.
As for rantings about the book ending right in the middle of the main storyline, ignore them! The story is too big for just one book, much like most stories written. Yes, it's a cliffhanger but that's fine. If the author had rammed the whole story into one book, it would of been short, uninteresting and full of holes.
Overall, a very good read and i'm glad I left my comfort zone to try something different. I look forward to reading the next installment
