The Lost Brigade is an effective and different fantasy novel, set in a keenly-realised and unusual world. At first glance Vic de Mharburg's world is not unlike ours, but the differences begin to become apparent as he discovers his sister has been murdered... by his brother. Vic's own death follows swiftly – at which stage the plot really begins. Vic does not simply depart upon his death – instead, he becomes a revenant, one of a group who will remain to try to prevent the rise of darkness.

The novel effectively paints the rise of the villains, and in particular the lost brigade of the title, and the efforts of the heroes to confront them as they gather more people to aid them and learn the abilities that their state imbues them with. The characters are well-drawn, and sympathetic, but by no means perfect.

There is a good mixture of action and characterisation, and an intriguing structure for the afterlife that is unlike anything I have seen before. I enjoyed it, and would recommend it to anyone who likes a different type of fantasy.
