First, Kirkus reveiw got everything wrong. Bleak Stones? *Bleak Stones*?! Shadowmaster Soulcatcher? Her *hordes* of Stranglers? 'The Old Man'? And what about Longshadow? The reveiw makes it sound totally ridiculous. Their reveiwers need to actually *read the book*. It's nothing like that at all, and Cook also explains where the money/food is coming from. He has a superb grasp of strategy and tactics, and his characters are memorable. Wonderful writing. But read the others first, or this will make no sense at all. Buy Bleak Seasons and this together, too. You will want to read this really badly after Bleak Seasons.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Darkness always comes
This was much better than 'Bleak Seasons', though From all the books, I preferred where Croaker is the main focus and from his point of View. Murgen tends to be flying around alot. But the story is getting on fine, the action is well, though Glen cook still needs to improve describing some of the stuff in more detail. I would have probably given this book 4 stars, but since I just finished read 'Soldiers Live' sataying up most of the night because of I feel generous. The first few books of The Glittering Stone may not be as good as the previous but wait till Soldiers Live, that is just superb. I really love the characters in these series, Croaker, Lady, One-eye, Goblin and some others. But those four are the core to the books for me.Was this review helpful?
