Sometimes you wait for a sequel (or a prequel) to a favorite nook or movie for years only to get a major disappointment (like it happened with the "new" Star Wars trilogy). The good thing about this book is... not a Jar Jar Binks in sight. If anything, "Nabla Kvadrat" was fun, but it was literary hooliganism. "Gorm..." is a mature novel, written in the tradition of history and historical science fiction writers like Vasiliy Yan or Ivan Efremov - but with just the right touch of that literary hooliganism.

Very good Russian prose, atmospheric, with a wide emotional range - from grim to hilarious, and great attention to detail. Vorobieff is indeed a worthy successor to 20th century historic fantasy writers like Efremov.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
