The creator of sf series heroine Honor Harrington turns successfully to fantasy. Bahzell is a prince of the Hradni, an outsize humanoid race prone to berserk rages. Due to a variety of circumstances, he becomes obliged to flee into regular humans' lands where Hradni are understandably unpopular. He and his companion survive a series of briskly paced adventures in a world Weber builds with a nice eye for detail, above-average knowledge of history, and a pleasing amount of wit. Moreover, the book's ending neither requires nor precludes a sequel. At the moment, Weber is not on a course to high honors or academic reputation but rather is emerging as a consistent producer of highly entertaining and intelligent action tales. Roland Green

Although I'm not too experienced with this type of fantasy books I was quite impressed with this one. Bahzell's story is thrilling and filled with suspense. David Weber proves himself as a skillful master of storytelling. He fills his story with just enough detail to give you a solid mental picture of the surroundings but rarely making the story seem tedious. The characters are not always likable but always interesting. I can't wait to read the next book in the series, The War Gods Own. The only complaints I have is it starts out a bit slow and a few parts seem unnecessary (who knows I may be proved wrong in the next book!) but the rest of the book makes it worth it.
Sure this is just an ordinary book, but its a very fun ordinary book, I would not expect anything less from David Weber. Thery are comming out with a sequal in March so if you read this book and like it be sure to check out "The War God's own" and "Windbreakers Oath".
