    "Not like his first two series"

    Larry Correia is my favorite author, but this book isn't my cup of tea. That said, it is exciting, peppered with a bit of very dry humor, and vivid. The characters are consistent, and their motivations clear. I used to love this sword and sorcery kind of fantasy, but it's not my thing anymore. If you love the Monster Hunter series or the Grimnoir series (I have listened to them multiple times) this is nothing like them. I hate to be negative about my main man Correia, but the narrator wasn't awesome either. Her voice and delivery lacked vitality. I recommend the book if you are a fan of the genre or play Warmachine.

    Kowalski, someone's looking at my profile. Find them. Rico, time for boom boom. Private, send the family a funeral bouquet.

    "Excellent!"

    I have no idea what the Warmachine game stuff is all about that most of the other reviewers mentioned (apparently it's the universe this book originates from). I'm a fan of the author, though, and this book did not disappoint.

    "Better than I hoped"
    Any additional comments?

    When it started I thought for sure the book would follow the same scattered storytelling format of "The Butcher of Khardov: The Warcaster Chronicles, Vol. Two." Luckily, Larry Correia kept the flash backs to a minimum and told a fairly epic story in a short time, glossing over un-necessary parts so that a quick, pulp-like story could be told.

    I even found myself rooting for Makeda from time to time, which is hard since she is one of the bad guys in the Iron Kingdoms and comes from a despicable society.

    Here's hoping a Trollblood-centric novel from the Hordes side of the Iron Kingdoms comes out and it is as well-written as this was. (Though a longer wouldn't be bad if the story needs it.) :)
