I like historical Fiction. This book was good but not great, , i am going to try another in the series before I make my final decision. It is worth a credit and i did not figure out who did it so kept me guessing :)
Not your standard hero story, , from where this story starts to where it finishes is a great ride. I like a deep plot with lots of twists
Unassuming hero,, uses his brain instead of the sword. I just finished the second book and it is as good as the first. I am downloading the Third..
I highly Recommend this series..... even if the 3rd book sucks the first two make it worth the credits.
Still Dark ,,,,Brooding and Violent but a much deeper plot. I like this book a lot better than the first book and i really liked the first.Seemed a bit less harsh with deeper characters.
The back story is great. Builders Sons,, Book of Kirk.. Took me longer than it should have to figure it out :) If you like The First Law books by Joe Abercrombie or The Night Angel Trilogy by Brent Weeks you will like these books. I am downloading Emperor of Thorns now.
I HIGHLY recommend this book.
If you are looking for friendly talking dragons, and Happily Ever After this book is NOT for you. Violent, dark and brooding. Reminds me of books by Brent Weeks and Joe Abercrombie. I am downloading the second book now. This one was a bit short for my taste.
In my top ten books. . and one of the biggest surprises. I have over 100 audible books. I got this one for a cross country road trip and was totally sucked into it, , almost ran out of gas cause i was so engrossed. Looking forward to more from this author.
I highly recommend this book.
This cant be the same author who wrote Mistborne or The Way of Kings. I was expecting a lot more, ,
I only got through a third of it and switched to a different book. Still one of my favorite authors and i am STILL waiting for the next book in Stormlight Archive.
I can not recommend this book.
The character development was great and i will be looking forward to the next book. For me the strange part was the use of the Catholic Church / Jesus along side demons. Not a big distraction and will still look for next book..
I got about two hours into it and had to stop. It seems it was written by a 13 year old boy. Again some may like it but i could not get into it.
The book was excellent but i the characters and plot lines i was most interested in were left hanging. My favorite character was killed off at the end of the last book and i almost did not come back. . . I am glad i did, , new characters were deep and pulled me in, , i did keep waiting for more development on the birds. Souls of sacrificed girls were trapped in animated mechanical birds. I thought this was going to be a major part of the second book but instead the author focused on chariot racing and political infighting. At the end of the book there were several pages that tied up loose ends, , i would rather have another book :)
Overall a very good book but still frustrating
the voice of nicomo cosca is great :)
I like stories that are not the standard local boy becomes ruler of the world. This story reminded me of Deadwood Showtime (I think) Series. Gritty dirty and interesting. I prefer low magic stories with deep plots. The plot here was a bit predictable but still an excellent story.
Overall very good i will be looking for Joe Abercrombie's next book.
