WARHORN is set in the era of Hannibal’s quest to crush the supremacy of the Roman Empire 221 BC, and the horror of the Iberian Peninsular torn asunder by warring factions is shockingly realistic within this novel.

As pro-Roman factions’ raid, pillage and terrorise tribal peoples’ who merely wish to live peacefully under Hannibal’s guardianship, the stench of death lingers on the ether. Left bereft in the face of wicked slaughter of men, women and children, the young hero Caros, vows to avenge the loss of his entire household. Although Caros is but a young man of headstrong intent, there is much he must learn of warfare from experienced and hardened warriors. To his credit he learns fast the ways of tracking enemy forces, but evading them is not always possible and hard lessons are learned along life’s path. Thankfully, not everything in a warrior’s life is all battle and no play, and love traps him in its passionate embrace. But Caros’ dreams are soon shattered by turn of events, and when the WARHORN finally blasts forth, Caros and his mentors rally to the war cry. In the meanwhile, Fate the unseeing force plays cruel tricks on Caros. So too it reignites heartfelt longing only to once again crush the warrior from within.

WARHORN is more than just a story of warriors, battle cries and storming the ramparts of a besieged city. Caros’ story tugs at a reader’s heartstrings in the closing stages, and I admire the author for breaking with convention and venturing to a heart-rending ending. Well, it was for moi, though Caros it would seem is set to ride forth within a second book.

I am an avid reader of historical fiction and had high hopes for this novel as covering a different period from a lot of other books out there. Unfortunately it was a great disappointment. The characters are very one dimensional and implausible. It is hard to feel any sympathy for them or care about their characters. The lead goes from a merchant to some sort of warrior hero in a way which is scarcely believable. The characters collapse from mirth at the feeblest of jokes and far too many are caricatures. Sometimes it reads like a list of actions with little plot to bring it along.

If you want something simple then this is just about ok. I won't bother with any more of the series. As others have said it is also riddled with errors.
