I'm giving this 2 stars for the action sequences, and little else. There are many rough edges to this book (as with all 3 in the series), though none so annoying (and newly introduced) as the change in character voices. Having read the first 2 novels in the series, I was confused as to why one of the main characters suddenly seemed to have a completely different voice than that introduced previously. Not only was this vexing, it was near inexcusable. I had to force myself to finish this series.

There are flashes of brilliance in Remic's writing, especially during anything involving a swinging axe or sword. However, dialogue and character voicing need a lot of improvement...most especially when either discussing or voicing female characters. None of the women in this book/series are believable. I'm a guy who loves violent fantasy and sci-fi, and even I was discouraged by their constant reduction into sexual objects or weaklings in need of protection. It got old quickly. I'll be happy if I never had to read the word "quim" again. Yuck.

If you like dark fantasy, or books with axe swinging muscular heathens in the main role, you will find pieces of this book to enjoy. Just be warned that there are speed bumps ahead. ( )

The third of Remic's Gemmell homages starts where the last one left off.

Some warlords realising that waking up ancient Vampire Warlords in triplicate was a rather bad idea for their continued influence and longevity.

Kell and Myriam and Saark knew it was a bad idea to start with, despite a couple of them already being vampiric.

So, Kell decides on a plan to get rid of them.

Given they have converted most of the normal populace of the area to vampire servants - he has to look elsewhere.

Elsewhere being a prison full of hardcases, a significant percentage of whom want to kill him.

Then there's the outcast Blacklippers to add to the strength, with whom he has the same problem.

Plus a wildcard force or two he doesn't know about.

Pretty much just as decent as the first two.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 085766106X, Mass Market Paperback)

Legendary warrior Kell must choose to flee the conquered land of Falanor, or fight for its people. Even now it may be too late, that all is lost... for the Vachine invaders have called upon their ancient rulers, semi-immortal bloodsuckers who dwell on the edges between life and death. The vampire warlords have returned, and they will feed.

To battle the vampire warlords surely means certain death. Legendary warrior Kell must choose to flee the land of Falanor, or fight for the people. He is aided only by the dandy, Saark, who has problems of his own. Even now it may be too late, and all is lost.… (more)
