  1. Take a very grimdark sort of tale, put an uncomfortably dark anti hero at the forefront, and you have the basic recipe for Under a Colder Sun I ve read a lot of fantasy, and I do tend to enjoy the darker side of the fantasy genre, but even I was a bit shocked at what Greg James pulled off here.Khale the Wanderer is a man who would be the vill...

Full review over at Fantasy Book CriticANALYSIS Under A Colder Sun is Greg James dark tribute to Robert E Howard s Conan and perhaps a credible hat tip to Kane by Karl Edward Wagner The story is perfectly set in the grimdark mold and captured my imagination the most among the entire set of books that were in my SPFBO line up The story begins immediately in a land of Colm where Khale is widely reviled and the soldiers sent to give him a royal invitation share the same disgust King Alosse ha Full review over at Fantasy Book CriticANALYSIS Under A Colder Sun is Greg James dark tribute to Robert E Howard s Conan and perhaps a credible hat tip to Kane by Karl Edward Wagner The story is perfectly set in the grimdark mold and captured my imagination the most among the entire set of books that were in my SPFBO line up The story begins immediately in a land of Colm where Khale is widely reviled and the soldiers sent to give him a royal invitation share the same disgust K...

  4. Under a Colder Sun is one of the books that made it through Mark Lawrence s SPFBO contest, so you already know that the quality of the writing is at the very least passable.Up until now I ve been relatively impersonal with my reviews, focusing on the writing and plot This review will be a temporary detour from that into the realm of ranting, feel free to stop reading now.When I heard that this work referred to itself as grimdark, I suppressed a shudder Usually this translates to reasonable wo Und...

  5. This book could easily have been a 5 star I m sad it didn t because I really enjoyed reading it.The book has a good pace, although the beginning was a bit strange But after that it completely hooked me in The prose has very creative, superb moments like chapter 16 Also, it felt very much alive with its descriptions of the rotten world of Khale But the author sometimes broke this effect by feeling the need to spoon feed us with some information or how a character was feeling, despite being This book could easily have been a 5 star I m sad it didn t because I really enjoyed reading it.The book has a good pace, although the beginning was a bit strange But after that it completely hooked me in The prose has very creative, superb moments like chapter 16 Also, it felt very much alive with its descriptions of...

  6. DISCLAIMER I was given an ARC advance review copy of Under A Colder Sun in exchange for a review.Under A Colder Sun is unlike any other book I ve read where the villain is actually the hero This tale is about Khale the Wanderer, who by all accounts, is evil and one should cower in his presence Yet, at the same time, he ends up being the hero But not the hero of fairy tales who saves the damsel in distress by slaying the dragon, no He is a hero who has to do wrong in order to begin making DISCLAIMER I was given an ARC advance review copy of Under A Colder Sun in exchange for a review.Under A Colder Sun is unlike any other book I ve read where the villain is actually the hero This tale is about Khale the Wanderer, who by all accounts, is evil and one should cower in his presence Yet, at the same time, he ends up being the hero But not the hero of fairy tales who saves the damsel in distress by slaying the dragon, no He is a hero who has to do wrong in order to begin making things right Khale is evil, yes, but in the end you will either grow to understand him and accept him as he is, or grow to wish him death Greg James weaves an intricate tale of different characters trying to figure out their purpose in a world of chaos a world that is dying all around them This story is set in a time where you either fight to live or you just give up your ...

Finalist of SPFBO Read the full list of finalists here Khale an immortal, evil warrior guy is hired by the King of Colm to take his pure, virginal daughter Milanda to a city of sorcerers, where she will be sacrificed in exchange for keeping Colm from being invaded for a little while.Thoughts on the plus side, this is a short read and the writing itself was solid, if at times it could have used athrough edit However, I felt this book l Finali...

  8. Such beautiful writing and vivid atmosphere that tingled at my imagination Shame that the characters have the depth of my pinkie toe, and the sub plots are about as clear as the mud and grime that coat each chapter One might call this 200 page novel gritty fo...

  9. I need a drink after finishing this The story is dark, extremely dark and never quite explained as to why the world is so dark I disliked the main hero , Leste The only person in the book who can be considered a hero and I found her a pig headed naive person who needed a good slap The other characters at least suited the situation in which they lived.The ending I have mixed feelings on On one hand it looks like Leste character might improve in the next book On the other wooh that was a br I need a drink after finishing this The story is dark, extremely dark and never quite explained as to why the world is so dark I disliked the main hero , Leste The only person in the book who can be considered a hero and I found her a pig headed naive person who needed a good sla...

  10. Loyalty, he thought, the first and the worst of all sins.But Timoth had come to accept that common men, rich and poor, lived to disturb and upset the world around them.But beware the men of this world above all things They have a darkness born to them that not even the Gods can fathom I know this because I am its root and seed.I really enjoyed this book It s super short just over 200 pages , so this review won t be terribly long.It basically follows Khale, a very not so honorable man, that i Loyalty, he thought, the first and the worst of all sins.But Timoth had come to accept that common men, rich and poor, lived to disturb and upset the world around them.But beware the men of this world above all things They have a darkness born to them that not even the Gods can fathom I know this because I am its root and seed.I really enjoyed this book It s super short just over 200 pages , so this review won t be terribly long.It basically follows Khale, a very not so honorable man, that is tasked with escorting a princess to be betrothed There s a lot of little things going on in all that, but I don t want to spoil any surprises.The world feels like it s just emerging from a post apocalyptic event Left in the lands between cities are areas of great danger, full of monsters and erratic storms that can rip your skin off It s very dark and lonely For my taste, it was nicely developed No huge info dumps which I always appreciate It was rolled out with story.The charact...
