4.7 out of 5 stars

on 26 October 2013
It's good, if you've read much recent william king it's pretty much the same quality. Ie you'll enjoy it a lot more than pretty much anything else you could get for 2 quid.

Have to say I don't know why he's so fixated on kormak - as far as his characters go kormak's the dullest by my book (not read any of his black library other than g+f though)

Once again another excellent installment in the great series.

Mr King has yet to disappoint and I for one am glad of that.

Kormak gets caught up in a familiar story, but there is nothing simple or cliched about the tale.

Roll on Book 5 and roll on more books from Bill King!

Great, well developed novel. Fast pace, good detailing. All the kormak books are good but this one is the best so far. Maybe it was the fact the setting is totally city based which confers a sense of place, meaning that surroundings do not continually have to be described leaving more room for character development.

City of Blood might be a better title for this, or Red Harvest, if it hadn't already been taken.

The previous Kormal books showed him out on the edges of Empire, where bad things happen far away from the secure and seemingly civilised city-states he's protecting.

This novel brings him back to one of those cities, and, unsurprisingly, it proves to be as dangerous as any tunnel or wood in the back of beyond.

The dangers are a little bit less obvious, though, and Kormak has to use his wits as often as his sword to survive. He's trapped between two warring families, and although he couldn't care less about either, he knows that the disapearance of his Order's agents is tied in with their conflict. As he investigates he finds there's an ancient evil at the root of it all.

I enjoyed seeing Kormak in an urban setting, and I particularly enjoyed the villains of the piece, all of whom have their own agenda.

The book is fast paced, violent and cleverly worked out to the last page. Go buy it.
