Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
In the newest fantasy series by Robert Asprin and Eric Del Carlo, a legendary warlord who has been dead for centuries -- Dardas the Butcher -- has been secretly resurrected by the villainous Lord Matokin. With a massive army powered by unscrupulous wizards at his command, the city-states of Isthmus will surely fall and Matokin will rule an empire greater than the world has ever known. But resistance comes from the unlikeliest of sources -- including the undead Dardas himself!

The story is told from several different characters' perspectives -- à la Harry Turtledove -- including Bryck, a popular playwright who lost his entire family to Matokin's invading army and is now bent on revenge; Praulth, a young college student studying military history who inadvertently uncovers the identity of Matokin's unstoppable general; Radstac, a female mercenary in search of a war; and Raven, a naïve magician-in-training who believes that she is Matokin's daughter.

Fans of Asprin's irreverent and humorous M.Y.T.H. saga and Phule's Company novels (Phule's Company, Phule's Paradise, A Phule and His Money, et al.) should prepare themselves for a dramatically different kind of literary experience in Wartorn: Resurrection. There are no wacky characters or tongue-in-cheek puns here, just a butt-kicking hard-core fantasy adventure comparable to any Raymond E. Feist or Robert Jordan offering. Paul Goat Allen

    Very good beginning

    This book was a great introduction to a great series. At first I didn't think anything was going to happen, but it does pick up in the second book right away. I do recommend reading all books back to back and the third one should be coming out soon, so you should get started!

    a decent read

    Its a pretty good book, but the ending is pretty much like leaving off at the end of a chapter... suggest you buy it after the next book comes out so you have a smooth transition. it was mostly a storyline build-up to what will hopefully be a great series. i can't wait to read the rest

    Great stat to a new series

    The various city-states in the Isthmus have never known wholesale war but that is about to end. The ruler of Felk, Lord Motokin has planned for years to conquer the city- states and become Emperor of the Isthmus. He amassed a large army and trained in his own college a group of powerful wizards who would give that army instant transportation and communications. He places them under the command of a two hundred and fifty year old general remembered in the history books as Dardas the Butcher.......................... The city states of Windal, Callah and Sook fall immediately and the entire population of U¿delph are killed, the city leveled to the ground. Although Dardas knows he needs periodic rejuvenation spells from a wizard under Motokin¿s command, the general is plotting to turn the magician¿s loyalty towards him. However, there are plans in the works from an assortment of people to stop this madness. One man is raising up a resistance in Callah while the leader of the powerful city-state Petgrad is trying to unite the city states so there¿s a chance they can win against the horde that is coming for them....................... This story is told from the perspective of many individuals including a mercenary, a scholar, a collaborator, a resistance fighter and Dardas. Once the reader adjusts to the changing points of view, the transitions between these various viewpoints are smooth and makes for a fascinating reading experience. With the exception of the collaborator and the general who are deliberately made despicable, the audience will like the other characters and feel close to them. That Robert Asprin and Eric Del Carlo can accomplish such a feat is a testament to their tremendous talent............................. Harriet Klausner
