Any regular medieval reader knows you hunt boars with a boar spear. You'd think Edmure Tully was getting married on the training grounds on a daily basis, to listen to the training instructor scream at his trainees to not get killed.

I won't be reading the rest of the series. View all 14 comments. Feb 14, Junkie for the Written Word rated it did not like it Shelves: books-i-didn-t-like. I hope I like it, I bought the whole trilogy.
Also, the last sentence I read was, "Slow down boy! Also the lead characters name is Thor. I think there might have been a reason this book was 2. Perhaps I should change my custom of not reading any reviews before I buy a book. It's a bad bad BAD book. I'm putting it on suspension until I have absolutely nothing else to read and no money to buy anything else to read.

I don't understand why people are only giving this book 1 star. As a huge fantasy fiction reader, I found it to be well written. It may not be as complex as Tolkien or Jordan but that doesn't mean it's bad. I found the story interesting, characters likeable and well hated as well. I've read a lot of the reviews on this book and most people are saying its "too simple" or "too predictable".
In the words of Hemingway "Do you really think big emotions come from big words?

It may not be my favorite, but its certainly not the worst I've ever read. It kept me entertained View all 27 comments. Apr 25, Ryan Mckee rated it did not like it. Very few books moved me to action like this one. In a hurry to download some books before going out to sea for a few weeks, I bought the first three books based on reviews, and at the top of the list. I downloaded them all, and with a very LOW standard I've been Very few books moved me to action like this one.
I downloaded them all, and with a very LOW standard I've been reading whatever was laying around the ship for god's sake to be happy, the Author couldn't even get there. After the first 30 pages, I had to double check to make sure this wasn't some kid's book. The character development is laughable. Wow, I can now use it all the time! After the first 60 pages, I was angry.

Determined to finish despite that I kept reading, imagining that it couldn't stay this bad. It did. I had bought and downloaded the next two books, so I prayed that if I skipped ahead the writing got better. It didn't. This book is awful in so many ways it is actually hard to describe. The writing? The Characters? Bad grammar, and spelling mistake abound acceptable in say Pathetic in a published piece.
I have read bad books This far and away blows them all away. It's a shining example of why I appreciate hard copy publishers, because there is next to no way this book could have survived.

Malazan Book of the Fallen by Steven Erikson
At first I thought that perhaps it was meant for children, around the age of But, in the blurb it does say it is for all ages, and this was confirmed when it was described how it felt to kill a man, and when brothels were visited, and crude jokes were made. Nope, this book is not for ten year olds. The writing and story just decided to treat me like I was a ten year old The plot starts off by reminding me of the Bible story of David and Goliath.
Sound familiar? Well, it did to me, especially when Thor killed a massive lion-like monsterous creature, partly through his sling-shot. In any case, although I found that all very funny, I could still deal with it, I mean most books have to come from some idea or another right?? This happens a lot during the book, he somehow miraculously knows who everyone is despite his sheltered background.
A Quest of Heroes (The Sorcerer's Ring, #1) by Morgan Rice
Thor then looks for his sheep, finds a lion-like beast eating it, kills the beast half with his sling-shot and half with some magical super strength that suddenly appears. No one else has ever been able to conquer this fearsome beast, but Thor has. The Sorcerer then reappears and tells him that he should take his destiny into his own hands. Does this sound corny to you? Well, take that corniness and double it, then you may have an idea of how this book was. Just because this is a fantasy book, does not mean that you make things unbelievable.
The point is not to cringe, then laugh your butt off at how unrealistic and improbable the story is. Now onto some of the things that really baffled me in the world. This world has two suns; a blue and green one and a red and orange one.
They rise about an hour a part. They are never explained. If you are going to have different suns, then tell me why there is a need for them. Apparently not, since everything looked exactly the same as it does in the light of our one sun. Travelling was fascinating in this book. Yet, on the sixth day of the story, when the Knight Eric must leave to go on a search for a wife, Thor says that he will accompany Eric to the first Southern Crossing; because, he comes from far south. It takes them half a day to ride on galloping horses to the first crossing.
In the book it is described that the capital is more in the centre of the Kingdom which is circular. The canyon runs around the whole land. When Thor goes on canyon duty, it somehow takes them only an afternoon to walk to the canyon A thoroughly generic assembly of tired fantasy tropes played straight without a trace of irony or originality, including but not limited to: -A good kingdom endangered by an evil empire on the other side of a physical and magical barrier.
