Could have been even better
am 19. März 2000
Three stars may be against the trend of reviews here, but it just didn't strike a big chord in me. On the good side, its not trite and it does not ever get boring! The heroes are up against an impossible battle. They do not fail, but they don't win by some wimpy unbelieveable turn of events, either (thank god). I hope to read the other books in the series, but I'm not in a rush to do so (hence the rating). I enjoyed the sweat and perseverence, but couldn't get motivated to support the characters. They all seem to be involved "because its something to do." Gemmell's photo and bio on the back cover was as interesting as the story. I have high hopes for the other books in the series.
