The Grim Company | [Luke Scull]

The Grim Company

The Gods are dead. The Magelord Salazar and his magically enhanced troops, the Augmentors, crush any dissent they find in the minds of the populace. On the other side of the Broken Sea, the White Lady plots the liberation of Dorminia, with her spymistresses, the Pale Women. Demons and abominations plague the Highlands. The world is desperately in need of heroes. But what they get instead are a ragtag band of old warriors, a crippled Halfmage, two orphans and an oddly capable manservant: the Grim Company.

    "A very good and surprising first novel"

    I have always been a huge fan of grimdark fantasy novels and I had heard Luke Scull's debut was an excellent new entry into the genre. For the first three quarters of the novel I was mildly disappointed because the novel seemed very generic to me. There was a band of heroes trying to overthrow an all powerful mage, and I know we have all heard this story before. However, the final quarter of this novel changed my opinion completely and made the whole wait worth it. SCull took all of the usual fantasy hero tropes and flipped them upside down and tore them apart. I met shock after shock in the last few hours of this book, and I couldn't have been happier. Another note about this novel is Scull writes very well detailed fight scenes with plenty of gore, whitch is very typical of a grimdark novel. There is a fair amount of bad language, but not too much, and little to no sex. The one serious downside to this listening experience is the fact that the narrator is very average and does not do a very good job differentiating characters. Overall, this was a very good debut by a talented author and I look forward to the next book.

    "Not bad, not great."
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    It was not a waste of time.


    If you’ve listened to books by Luke Scull before, how does this one compare?

    No. I thought he did very well.


    Which character – as performed by Gerard Doyle – was your favorite?

    Brodar Kayne, Jerek, and Eremul.


    Do you think The Grim Company needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Yes, Kayne has a new, and very important, focus. I am hoping the next book is 90% his story,


    Any additional comments?

    The premise follows the fantasy recipe. There are some unique aspects to the world. It would have been a better book for me if it would have centered around Kayne, Jerek, Emerul, and Cole. The rest of the characters were just not interesting. I would read any book that was focused solely on Kayne and Jerek with Emerul as a secondary character,

    "Uncommon book"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Grim Company to be better than the print version?

    I think some of the voices given to certain characters are priceless, so yes.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Cole, the true born hero. I laughed so hard so many times hearing him boosting his own deluded hero image.


    What does Gerard Doyle bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    he did a find job, read above.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    the barbarians.


    Any additional comments?

    This book needs your attention, heard it almost halfway through while doing other stuff, gaming, working etc. Didn't get me, then I decided I should give it proper attention else the story is a bit hard to follow with the unconventional storytelling. I loved it when I did:D
