    Not quite what I was expecting, but still good.

    Not quite what I was expecting, but still good.

    I was expecting something a little more action oriented. Which isn't to say that there aren't any action scenes in the book. But it's much more a story of the costs of war and if the ends justify the means than of two unnaturally powered groups of people meeting up on the field of battle and throwing down. Actually, given the rules of the world established in the book, I don't think such a battle would be possible. There's a difference of micro vs. macro power levels here. A Nazi super soldier may have the ability to summon fire or crush a tank with the power of their mind on a moment's notice, where as a British warlock is cutting deals with Lovecraftian style demons to freeze enemy supply lines or sink enemy fleets.

    It's definitely a darker book than I normally enjoy. It does lose a few points with me for hitting a couple of my personal pet peeves. It sequel baits the reader with the ending, and I feel that it telegraphed a future plot twist so badly that when I eventually get to it my reaction will be less of surprise and more of "about time". But I liked what was here enough that I'll continue with the series.

    Another Tragedy of Replaced Cover Art

    This book's original cover art was SO much more intriguing than this "more realistic" looking version.

    I can't comment on the author's work, however. This was a gift for someone who had been looking very hard for a copy of this novel. The first thing out of his mouth when I handed this hard-to-acquire book, was "Wow. Thanks. God, why are they always changing the cover art. This is so much less fantastic than the original." Then he proceeded to show me the original art. I wholeheartedly agreed with him.

    I expect the REAL reason for the purchase, the AUTHOR'S work, is going to meet the gift-recipient's expectations for literature, however.
