A bit of a disappointment,
This review is from: Troy: Shield Of Thunder: The Shield of Thunder No.2 (Hardcover)
Sadly David Gemmell's last book before his death is somewhat of a disappointment. Lacking the fast pace of Lord of the Silver Bow it is still a good read but rather predictable. Characters and story line offer nothing new and plot development is very formulaic. Having said that Gemmell was justifiably viewed by many as the greatest fantasy author for a generation. Even at his lowest ebb his work is far above the dross that comprises most of the genre. So buy the book but don't have too high expectations.
