    One thought on “Blackthorne”

    1. I have been friends with Stina for well over 20 years so there is no way my opinions on this book can be taken as objective in any way I ve played in a DD campaign that she ran based in this world I ve read an early version of this novel something like 10 years ago There is a minor character in this book named after me I am biased as all hell.So anyway, this book is great I read 100 pages the first night I cracked it open, and read no less than 100 pages a night from that point on The story is f [...]

    2. Earlier this year, I was looking for a proper fantasy book, and ended up picking up Cold Iron And I ADORED it Honestly, I loved the plot, the characters, the writing Upon finishing the book, I immediately raced to my nearest bookseller and asked them when the sequel would be out, and, oh my god, it was going to be out in less than a month Imagine my excitement Sadly, lots of stuff happened since then including moving to two different countries , and even though I got the book the day it came out [...]

    3. I really enjoyed the first book Cold Iron However I found this one a much difficult read I felt less connected to the characters and seemed to care less about what happened to them.For some reason I found the politics and human not human conflicts disjointed and confusing than the first book I will most likely continue with the series but I am am a bit disappointed with this book.

    4. I wish this book did not suffer from middle of the series itus I loved Cold Iron, but this sequel lacks focus As is typical of contemporary, fat fantasy novels, it jumps from character to character, never giving you any satisfying depth Still, I really like certain characters Nels and Suvi return from the first book, along with the new title character Blackthorne I just wish the plot had been tighter and coherent.

    5. This book would have been a lot better if it had been significantly shorter It was trying to achieve far too much at once, and as a result lacked both focus and depth There were entire subplots and at least one fairly major character which seemed to be relatively pointless It wasn t terrible, but it also wasn t nearly as good as Stina Leicht s other books, including the book that preceded this one in the series.

    6. I don t think I ve ever seen a fictional book address some of these issues erasure assimilation, particularly so well in the text I love that these issues are presented as conflicts between well meaning good guys rather than a villain and a paragon of enlightenment and virtue and that no one is right all the time, and that they respond to criticism by seeking to be better to their allies.

    7. Well written and a good story, but I had a hard time getting through it Read several other books between chapters in this one, and that s unusual for me The pace felt off, and the two distinct storylines rarely meshed.

    8. This is secondary world military fantasy, with complex and detailed worldbuilding The titular is an escaped killing machine, now trying to decide how much of his psychological indoctrination he can discard, and what he will replace it with It s the second part of a series, so I m not sure how much of it would be comprehensible without the first book Cold Iron , but if you ve got the time and inclination for a couple big meaty books, these would be a good choice.
