Very different world building for a fantasy book. A little too grimdark for my taste but still a good read.

Brilliant book, but you-ve gotta work for it.The first time I tried reading this, I got about 20 pages in and dnf-d it. I didn-t know who the hell anyone was, what was happening and why. That was a few months ago.About a week ago I bought it on audible and gave it another crack. I still had trouble with who people were, what was happening and why. But eventually all of that is uncovered to reveal a rich world full of life, deep characters and a thrilling mysterious story.After finishing this I r Brilliant book, but you-ve gotta work for it.The first time I tried reading this, I got about 20 pages in and dnf-d it.

This book is fantastic and I-m glad to have stuck with it. Unfortunately I can see a lot of people dnfing it like I did the first go around.If you-re struggling with this and happen to see my review, stick with it. The odd way the story unfolds really works with the plot once it-s all said and done.Definitely going to re of his work.

Another five star book remarkably performed by Joe Jameson. After reading the blurb on this story, I was hesitant to start it, but I knew I liked Joe Jameson-s narration so gave it a try. No regrets here, as this story grabbed me quickly and the earbuds stayed on. It-s a compilation of journals and papers by Scholar Goran, about supposedly the greatest mercenary crew to take a purse.

After reading the blurb on this story, I was hesitant to start it, but I knew I liked Joe Jameson-s narration so gave it a try. No regrets here, as this story grabbed me quickly and the earbuds stayed on. It-s a compilation of journals and papers by Scholar Goran, about supposedly the greatest mercenary crew to take a purse. Twenty men known to have saved the Old Kingdoms at Tharos Falls, Kailen-s Twenty. It-s fifteen years after disbanding and someone is killing these brave men. This is where the journey begins, to learn the who and why. To do this, we listen to various narratives each with a different point of view, stemming back to the events of fifteen years ago to answer the question. It-s an engrossing tale, as in the mercs take special brews in order to temporarily make themselves into super fighters by enhancing speed, sight and hearing. These brews, overtime, discolor the skin making it bark like, colorful, and tend to mentally affect the user. This in itself had me hooked on the story, with the fight scenes, but the mystery of the whole story kept my interest. About the twenty; they-re a rough bunch of players and I didn-t particularly like them, but as the story progresses I found myself seeing a different side of things. As brutal as they were, they were also soldiers doing a job. Revenge makes an appearance, an ugly face that has changed it-s players into something as monstrous as those it follows. It-s fascinating and I wanted to know where it was going and where it would end. I wasn-t disappointed.

The Miernik Dossier, fantasy version. With a dash of Macbeth. Blow wind! Come wrack! At least we-ll die with harness on our back! Know what I mean?I-ll not say this is grimdark, because frankly it-s a stupid word. What does it even mean? Declaring itself a sub-genre, with a dorky little name? That whole nerd-supremacist faction that wants to secede from the glorious union of fantasists can eat shit. I don-t care if it-s Daniel Polansky or J-fucking-R-R himself, it-s still fantasy. Get me?Anyway, The Miernik Dossier, fantasy version. With a dash of Macbeth. Blow wind! Come wrack! At least we-ll die with harness on our back! Know what I mean?I-ll not say this is grimdark, because frankly it-s a stupid word. What does it even mean? Declaring itself a sub-genre, with a dorky little name? That whole nerd-supremacist faction that wants to secede from the glorious union of fantasists can eat shit. I don-t care if it-s Daniel Polansky or J-fucking-R-R himself, it-s still fantasy. Get me?Anyway, the book. Exceptional. Pick it up, read it now. Selby does us the courtesy of refraining from unnecessary explanation, which is demeaning to the reader. Listen folks, it-s undignified and we shouldn-t tolerate it. Selby doesn-t lower himself. This is something we should appreciate, see? To the reader, me in this case, the message thus communicated was: "Hopefully everyone is smart enough to pick up on what-s happening without me having to spoon-feed a pack of half-wits". Thanks Selby, I believe we-re up to the task. And, miracle of miracles, when I-d finished reading, the story was fully-orbed and coherent. Although I-m not prone to blowing smoke I-d even say -skillfully crafted -. Pick this up if you need the antidote to the last 20 fantasy book clones you read. It-s worth it.
