Look at this book!

A co-worker lent me this book. It’s fabulous. In all honesty, I’ve never heard of this book but it has three things going for it that made me love it and I haven’t even opened it yet.

1.) Look at that cover. No, really look at it and focus some energy on the bottom right corner. Yes, those knights are pretty much dismembering each other. Awesome.

2.) It says it’s epic! Epic people. And right on the cover. The little blurb claims it compares with the Lord of the Rings. The Lord of the Rings! Yep. I might be a sucker but I’m a sucker that loves the Lord of the Rings so I’m reading this book.

3.) Pictures. It has pictures. Those are soldiers of demonland if you can’t read the caption due to my crap photography skills.

This is going to be so much fun. Or not. We’ll see.

  1. THERE ARE PICTURES? I want this! Please tell us all about it ASAP. I’ve heard of this before — CS Lewis spoke of it with great admiration — and have been circling it warily at the library for ages.

    • Yes! And the pictures are awesome. 🙂

      Hmmm. CS Lewis spoke of it? I may need to move this up on the list!

  2. I’ve read this. If you like long, detailed description of battle scenes, go for it. It was beautifully descriptive, but also incredibly tedious and I didn’t care for the characters much- some of them just loved warfare too much.

    • Hmm. Good to know. Thanks for the heads up. Not much of a battle scene person so this could be interesting.
