Product Description


'After five science-fiction novels that explored the seamier side of corporate machinations in grittily realised futures, Morgan turns his hand to classic fantasy. What remains constant is his flair for setting, complex political feuding, and strong characters forever on the outskirts of society. Ringil's character and his complex relations with those around him lift this novel far above the average'―GUARDIAN

'It compels you to read on with its gritty, visceral writing and intelligent plot. It's tense and fascinatingly people and given that the follow ups will doubtless be tremendous, you're encouraged to jump on from the start. Just, ahem, steel yourself'―SFX

'An epic tale of gods and magic, betrayal and survival . . . THE STEEL REMAINS will not disappoint. Morgan writes with an immediacy and frankness often hard to come by in fantasy, and his themes have great relevance to today's society. His portrayals of sex and violence are not for the squeamish reader, and his language is down-to-earth, but for those who prefer to have the sugar coating removed, THE STEEL REMAINS is a fantastic example of the modern fantasy genre'―WATERSTONE'S BOOKS QUARTERLY

About the Author

Format: Paperback
I found this book highly entertaining. Maybe my tastes are a little more lowbrow, but it was action packed, with cool monsters, and a hint of a deep history that is alien yet familiar. I really enjoyed the steppe barbarian character (I'm pretty sure he was thrown in there as a bone [no pun intended] for guys like me, and there's a gnarly scene with a possessed prostitute that will make your skin crawl. Don't get me wrong, this book is not for everyone, it is exceedingly graphic, both in its description of sex scenes(mostly homosexual) and its action scenes. I enjoyed it though, I found it hard to put down, and it was definitely one of the highlights of a book filled camping trip.

Format: Paperback
I love this book, but I understand those who aren't as enamoured of it as I am. It takes a while to get into, and the plot is slow and convoluted and sometimes confusing. The world-building is spare, but what is presented is fascinating, and a nice change from other fantasy novels where every tiny detail of the scenery is explained. It took me a while to become emotionally invested in the characters, but once I did, I was hooked. However, if you can't like the characters, particularly Ringil and Archeth, you probably won't like this book. There are lots of intriguing little details (and I wanted to find out more about the sci-fi-tech elements of the landscape) but the book's strength comes from its characters and their choices. The next book in the series is better, and I hope enough people get through this one to enjoy that one as well.

Worth a read if you like fantasy and are not a homophobe. He has a big sword and he's not afraid to use it... Not my favourite R.Morgan book - i prefer the Altered Carbon universe. But still good and i will read the sequel if there is one.
