Kurzbeschreibung

A non-stop fantasy action thrill ride full of swords, magic and battle! Once the blood starts flowing, it just doesn't seem to stop.

Blood and Steel begins the story of Cor Pelson. You see, Cor is a Dahken - a race of magical warriors long though dead by both the beneficent priests of the Shining West and the necromancers of the Loszian Empire. Shortly after he was born Cor changed - the coughing attacks came, and his skin changed to the gray of a corpse. He is different, and there were those who took notice.

Cor comes to realize that there are those who would control the power in his blood. Frightened and determined to protect those he loves, Cor steals away from home. He quickly finds that the world is not what he thought it was - the world is not full of happy farmers in a bountiful kingdom, living in peace and freedom. It is in fact a cruel, brutal place where blood flows readily and the ability to protect himself is paramount.

Those that would control the power in his blood follow him to the sea. Cor must accept that he is different, learn to unlock his strength and take revenge upon the Loszian necromancer who has wronged him.

Blood and Steel (Volume I)
Fire and Steel (Volume II)

4.0 von 5 Sternen Nice easy read 26. Januar 2012
Von Clinton Eldrick Lewis - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
So this is the story of a boy named Cor imbued with special powers and his rise to power. Okay so we have seen the story before and but this does have some turns that make it fun. The boy is part of a race that can gain power through their blood on top of this he is one of the last as most of his race have been killed of by the followers of a supposed good god.

Bad
- Start of the book is very weak with the author telling you what happens very little dialogue. Once Cor comes back from the sea the writing picks up, it seems that the author really just wanted to get to the part of the story they liked.
- Characters are pretty simple not a lot to them and their motivations could of been fleshed out a lot better. Many of the characters have such potential but in the end you are left with a group of people who you don't really know why they do anything.
- Magic has some great ideas in it but again these are left mostly bare of details. Cor gains power by being hurt but that's about all that is said on it. Why he has a fetish and how it helps him are left just to the fact that he feels more powerful. Which is great but how does he feel more powerful. The magic could of done with a lot of fleshing out.

Good
- World has an interesting story and shows that the author gave it a lot of thought. Unlike other books when you leave the book you can still remember the world.
- The race that Cor belongs to and their place in the world was interesting and I felt fun to read.
- The clash of moralities especially toward the end was one of the better aspects of the book and it was nice of the author to put some time in it. I especially liked the way the slaves were handled it had a pragmatic view.

Overall a fun read and I will pick up the sequel when it comes out. The book does have some things that could of been improved on and I hope in the next book they are. However as it stands it is well worth the time and money to read it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen its late 18. Januar 2012

So they were right, the story is awesome. its 4 in the morning and i have to be up in like 3 hours but i couldn't stop reading until i was done. the story was a little abrupt, going from action scene to action scene with a little bit of development in between. it was almost as if you knew you couldn't finish you piece of cake so you just eat the frosting, but for 99 cents i can't imagine it being any longer. the story starts of a little cliche but it certainly isn't.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Good story, ordinary editing 1. April 2012
Von G. Collier - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I enjoyed the story, the Dahken are a compelling character set. Plot moved along at a good pace, although the characters were a little two dimensional.

The editing of the book was pretty bad - incorrect word definitions, homonyms galore, poor sentence structure. If, as the author asserts, three different editors were used, all I can assume is that none of them were particularly attentive. Some of the issues are enough to interrupt the reading flow, which is a pity.

All in all well worth 99c, I'll certainly read the next installment,

2.0 von 5 Sternen Just ok 16. Januar 2013
Von GJ - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I can understand why some reviewers gave this more than 2 stars. The plot is original and the writing well done (I guess). My problem is that there is no character development and that is what I like in my fantasy. There is a love interest, but you never really get a feel why the two characters feel so strongly about each other except sex. Readers that like moral ambiguity and shades of grey (vs black and white, or vs good guy and bad guy) will probably enjoy this series. Those readers like me that want to know who the good guy is supposed to be in a story probably won't like this so much. I never really became emotionally involved with any of the characters. I admit to hating the Lozcians, but I didn't really care if anyone else died, or succeeded in their endeavors. No one was really honorable enough that I wanted to pull for them. Like I say, if you like moral ambiguity, you will likely enjoy this. This is not to say that I want a goody goody character. I loved The Lies of Locke Lamora (thief story) and have read some good assassin fantasy (but the thieves or assassins still had some moral code or consistent belief system that guided their actions, the main character in Blood and Steel, Cor, seemed to not really have an sense of identity). I have also read the next installment in the series and found that the character development does not get any better. I would also not recommend this series to younger audiences, it is pretty dark in places. I am moving on to another series.

5.0 von 5 Sternen great start for the series 22. Februar 2012
Von Brian Chrisman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I liked the premise, the pace, and the plot of this book. I'll read further installments from this author. (see bottom for further notes on why 5-star rather than 4-star here)

The world and magic was nicely thought out and quite creative/memorable. I've read a couple books since and this one is still fresh (meaning it was interesting).
The characters are engrossing and realistic.

pro/con with very non-specific spoilers:
Pro:
Well, let's just say *WOW* that is very creative. The 'blood walk' (not sure what else to call it) of an object going from antiquity to the current setting was a very nice touch for the genre.
I also really liked the main character's clarity of conscience. This leads to satisfying but surprising action, particularly towards the end of the book (so keep reading).

Con:
Perhaps too many characters either die or are never heard from again, leaving the sections of the book to feel a bit 'encapsulated', as though the world revolves around the main character and nothing else really happens. The non-death component of this may of course be resolved in future installments, but some key characters seem like they died before they were fully explored.

*Uggh*.... I was *all* set to give this a 4-star, but after thinking about my own review, I keep finding myself considering this work to be 'exceptional' rather than 'very good'.
Basically the overall creativity and the clarity-of-purpose of the main character override the lack of bringing ancillary characters to fruition before abandoning/killing them (and the resultant more-static-than-hoped-for world). As a result I'm bumping this to a 5-star.

I *really* abhor giving out 5-star reviews! (click on my name/profile and you'll see only a small handful among the 50+ books review)
