Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hawkwood and the Kings (Monarchies of God): 1 (Paperback)
It has 2-3 volumes in it (I can't remember now; there have been months since I read it and I turned page after page without stopping for many hours a day;for 3 days.
It is a very good quality book, and, in general I loved the story overall. In my opinion this is better than 'A Game of Thrones', but as I said, this is my opinion only. Another thing to mention is that these volumes have been released much before the 'A Game of Thrones' were launched on the market.
I can't say what I liked about the story because I am afraid I will go into a detail or two and for me, to truly enjoy a book I MUST know NOTHING of what will happen and so on. For me, going at the end of the book and reading the last few pages to know how it ends makes a book lose its purpose. So, I prefer to say only that it is a story about several kingdoms with very different kings and magic is involved, but 'mild magic' not firebolts at the tips of the fingers and ready to be used by and deplorable character at any moment he/she sees fit, but magic that comes at a cost and that makes the book seem even more interesting.
A good read. I just found it worth to spend 3 days reading it (700 pages, with a good number of words on a page).
I would strongly recommend it to a bit of fantasy, and not any kind of fantasy, but a plausible, well constructed one.
