Customer Review

on 14 May 2014
I'd just read two books I didn't enjoy! Joe Abercrombie’s next aren’t yet due and I’ve read everything Brandon Sanderson has written to date, Scott Lynch has slowed and George RR Martin is a year behind with the next in the series. One name guarantees a damn good story, well written and breathtakingly pacey. Jonathan Moeller, he writes novels at industrial capacity, if someone told me he was actually a group of writers all using one name, if it weren’t for his singular style, I may be tempted to believe that. His Ghost series is the epitome of female assassin books and I think he’s up to about 9 Ghost novels now.
He’s got so many great series going on I honestly can’t imagine where he finds the time. So when I saw yet another new series I couldn't resist the first one free. Totally hooked, what a great story. Old earth knights escape earth via a portal, they don’t know that’s what they are doing, but that’s how they end up on another world. Unfettered by the Saxons, Normans et al, Chivalry continues and with a little magic loaned to them by the locals you have the backdrop for some interesting twists. Enter our hero Ridmark Arban, a Knight with a Magical sword, virtue and the belief in the Knights code. Off he sets on an adventure which is great fun, it’s a linear story but well-presented and interesting, this book in the series is the scene setter and events take place over a few weeks only. But its boys own stuff and I happily let Jonathan drag me in so I would buy the next. (Already read that and will review separately). This author is producing books at a hell of a rate, he’s the Henry Ford of literature, except he’s making Mercedez not Fords. Enjoyable, interesting and full of adventure. Gave it a 4 only because I’d read the next one before I wrote this review and the next one is a step up again. Read this and you will read the next.
