Resenhas

The second book in The Fencer Trilogy.

All our favourite, and not so favourite characters have survived the downfall of Perimadeia and fate, or maybe someone tampering with The Principle, has brought them all back together again for another round of shenanigans, squabbles, battles, and all out war.

All good stuff.

And now it's on to the third and last book in the trilogy, The Proof House.… (mais)

Ce roman court de K. J. Parker aborde le thème de l'exorcisme avec beaucoup de fraicheur et d'originalité, le tout dans un ton très particulier mais très accrocheur. Il en ressort une lecture très jubilatoire, avec qui plus est une intrigue intéressante et une chute difficile à voir venir mais fort à propos. Il ne reste qu'à espérer que la deuxième partie de ce diptyque soit du même niveau et qu'elle réponde aux questions restées sans réponse dans cet ouvrage.

An entertaining listen. The reader had my attention from the start. I honestly thought this was some sort of advice book so I was surprised when a story broke out :). Main character is a salt-of-the-earth type and the way they solve problems keeps you interested. I decided to give it 4 worms out of 5 worms. Surely enough to beat some lions, right? right?

There's no formal training for battlefield salvage. You just have to pick things up as you go along. Swords, armour, arrows - and the bodies, of course.

So the series begins. But just who is Saevus Corax really?

I love love love Parker's black humor and his deeply flawed and twisty characters. Things are never quite what they seem in his books. So be ready for a surpising ride.
