A truely BRUTAL book,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Iron Wars: Iron Wars:Monarchies of God 3 (Paperback)
From the moment you read the prelude to this book you will be wrapped into a twisted brutal world were no one is safe....
This book continues a very dark fantasy tale that is roughly based on the fall of christianity in the middle east and the rise of Islam and the Turkish empire that caused so much fear in europe (also chuck in a bit of colombus' journey to discover the americas).
I would have to say this is just about the darkest fantasy I have ever read.... even George R R Martin and Robin Hobb pale in comparison to Mr Kearney for the brutality that he unleashes on us, thou he fails to quite get the chartacter involvement that both the afore mentioned authors give us. This is not a weakness of the books thou just a different writting style.
