DNF at 21%This one just isn't catching my imaginationIt's always an interesting conceit to tell a story from the point of view of a bad guy However while Slud the troll is indubitably a bad guy he's merely thuggish and brutal rather than interesting He's also rather dim witted and doesn't seem to possess any personal motivation his uest for revenge is merely something that he's been trained into by his 'foster mother' Agnes Agnes could be an interesting character but rather than being a mortal individual consumed by loss and bitterness she seems to be some sort of avatar of a supernatural being with the result that she feels extremely flat and opaueI have to admit that while reading the prologue I found myself hoping that the narrative would switch to another point of view for the main story But it didn't and after checking other reviews it seems that the whole book sticks with Slud Unfortunately I'm not sticking with him

In a fantasy world set after Ragnarok the last surviving troll seeks vengeance on the goblin tribe that has taken residence on the mountain his people called home Slud Blood Claw has been trained and magically conditioned since birth by a powerful hag to be the ultimate tool of brutal vengeance On his path to victory over the vile Khan of the Rock Wolf goblin clan he encounters an extremely varied cast of bizarre charactersFair warning this book seeks to gross you out on nearly every page Even so some parts of the book really stand out in this regard including poetry from a mad torture victim who is being literally eaten alive It's also a book about monsters Characterful fascinating and engrossing ones but they're all monsters doing monstrous things There's no good guys or even righteousness It's a brutal short and often disgusting tale of brutal characters doing horrible things to each otherSlud himself is the least of them The goblins of the Rock Wolves and in particular Dingle and Fixelcrick are brilliantly done The Khan of the Rock Wolves himself stands out as a loathsome character in a book where all the characters could be described that way The lone surviving goblin of the Moon Blade clan Neither Nor is wonderful as well and his banter with the thuggish Slud is terrific Neither Nor also has a way with words and one word in particular But we also get viewpoints from a distant descendant of Fenrir and the hag Black Agnes as well As a character piece this is masterfulIt's also interesting that this is only the first part of Slud's revenge story It should be an interesting series as he moves on to the real movers of the death of his people Read & download É PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Þ Chris Sharp
