Overview

A re-issue of a classic fantasy series, back in print for the first time in almost 10 years.

By the mid sixth century of Ramusian reckoning the great struggle is approaching its climax. For the victor there will be supremacy; for the vanquished, cultural annihilation. Fighting that war, Corfe of Torunna will find that court intrigue can be as murderous as any martial foe. The monks Albrec and Avila will explode a bombshell of secret knowledge which will change the continent irrevocably. And Richard Hawkwood will return with the discovery of a New World. The sixth century is the crucible of history. The century of the soldier.

I found it difficult to put down. The dialogue is well done, if only because Kearney writes so well. The plot moves along at a nice clip, which is welcome after Martin's Song of Ice and Fire. It is a little too male-centric; hardly any mentionable interesting female characters to speak of. The other characters are two-dimensional as base emotions and male bravado abound, at least in the first book. Regardless, I still recommend it. Its overall quality is difficult to ignore.

I would not recommend reading the paul kearneys books on nook . some sort of corruption has happened and at least 3 books from the publisher will not open or will kick you out . Supposedly barnes and noble will notify the publisher and then maybe in 2 or 3 weeks they will take care of the problem .. or maybe in 3 weeks ill still have the same problem and go thru all this again
