No one is endearing or sympathetic. Remic tells a great story, packed to the margins with action. Sometimes, an empty brass barge would drift from the mist of an early morning, a single bell chiming. It was already established that they we Ok. Would I recommend this book? To say I have been looking forward to this book would be a vast understatement, after the fantastic cliff hanger ending in Kell's Legend, i've been waiting to see just how Andy Remic would manage to extract Kell and co from what appeared to be a very sticky situation. However, the acts of remorseless, inhumane violence and brutally barbaric battles will leave you shivering and smelling the blood page after page. After a daring rescue of Nieanna and her friend Kat, the four become refugees, and they may be F An albino army invades the kingdom of Falanor, and the first to fall to their merciless onslaught is its most northern city, Jaldar.
This is not a novel that you can easily predict thats for damn sure. Joining Kell is his granddaughter, Nienna and her friend, Katrina along with Saark, the ex-Sword Champion of King Leanoric who is in disgrace after an affair with the queen. Mejor con un ejemplo: Ingles Leanoric paled, and swalowed. As irritating as this could be, however, the story is outstanding. The fact that there is a larger conflict going on all around seems to be forgotten and has to be periodically reminded to the characters and the reader.
Kell manages to flee with his granddaughter and her schoolmate. As it happens, this is where the famous warrior hero Kell has retired. They came from the north, and the city fell. Soul Stealers is fast, brutal and above all unmissable, there is quite simply nothing out there that can currently compare to Andy Remic's unrelenting, unforgiving and unflinching style. With your tricks and cheeky words. Despite, not liking Kell's Legend, Andy Remic has potential.
Only the bandit Jarek Mace, and the magicker and bard Owen Odell, have the courage to fight the Angostins and the undead. All I ever see is home, and here, and school. The new twist of the vampire as well as the other creatures in this text keeps you biting your nails and turning pages. Firstly he ends up with a pink silk shirt wearing Dandy named Saark, who is the womanizer of womanizers, and lazy as hell to boot. Set against the backdrop of a London simmering with poverty, change and racial tension, this taut thriller is a fitting legacy for the great writer. There is no filler in this book.
Remic pulls out all the stops to make sure that his characters are challenged. But then, despite her disabilities, she was… special. I plan to read the other 2 books in the trilogy simply because the story is indeed that much fun. His books have been translated into six languages. Kell, hero of legend, is tired and wants to be left in peace to watch his granddaughter succeed at university. Ich konnte ihn nie so genau einschätzen. Remic has an unorthodox writing style that I can appreciate, and his prose has an edge that reminds me of the lyrics of a hard-rock band like Soundgarden.
Kell is a hero for the modern era, complete with idiosyncrasies, a deep and troubled history, and dealing with his own set of problems whilst struggling desperately to survive. It seems a bit juvenile, but that could just be me being prudish? Kell is a retired warrior of legend, suffering from arthritis and the sluggishness of age, until a bloodthirsty army descends upon his town to lay destruction. But don't let that make you doubt if the book is good or not. Overall, I did like it. If you read one book this year make it this one but know that if your squeamish or afraid of things that go bump in the night this wild ride of a novel is not for you. The vachines are clockwork vampires - humans that are mated at a very young age with clockwork mechanisms who need a distillate of human blood to survive. Then, everything picks up speed and you barrel through this story from one magnificent fight to another.
Anukis moved on, hand touching the smooth wall where lode-veins of crystals and blood-red mineral deposits could be traced, glittering, in the glow of irregularly placed fat-lamps. I'm a fan of descriptive writing and at times I liked Remic's visual imagery, but it soon became repetitive. Such is the legacy of the Black Pike Mountains. There is no filler in this book. Kell is a believable hero, a believable grandfather - cranky and sore in the morning, hardened to the world and the nature of man. Merging autobiographical details of Gemmell's life as a journalist in South London with a serial killer and a tinge of the supernatural, this is perfect for fans of David's work as well as fans of gritty crime novels. Argh - Moment, denn es verleitet förmlich dazu, sich auch den zweiten Band zulegen zu wollen.
Kells Legend is loosely based on the traditional fantasy story, brave but world weary warrior type who just wants to retire from any bloodshed and finds himself forced to use his talents of destruction. The dung they fill your head with in school these days. El autor nos plantea una historia pasapáginas repleta de acción, como la típica película de fantasía de serie B o una novela pulp. She moved to a heavy cabinet beside the door, lifted it with ease, carrying it across a thick rug and tilting it to wedge under the door handle. I will be moving on to the second book Soul Stealers without hesitation.
