Review: Of Merchants and Heroes

Review: Of Merchants and Heroes

Of Merchants and Heroes
Of Merchants and Heroes by Paul Waters
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is one, I thought after I’d finished it, that perhaps would have benefited by having its ‘Historical Note’ at the start. I certainly found it to be a better book looking back at it after having read the Historical Note, than I did while I was actually ploughing through it. Though, I can maybe see why note was placed at the…

Review: Conquest

Conquest
Conquest by Stewart Binns
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is probably going to be seen as a guilty pleasure and I have glanced at reviews which would suggest it is quite possibly not all that cool to say (a bit like admitting to thinking ‘The Da Vinci Code’ was one hell of a rattling good and enjoyable read, which is was, you know it), but … I thoroughly enjoyed this one.

Review: The Rule Of Four

Review: The Rule Of Four

The Rule Of Four
The Rule Of Four by Ian Caldwell
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

This is gonna be easy: Bollocks.

Long-winded, convoluted, meandering, unnecessary, “me-too” bollocks at that.

I can only surmise that the people quoted at length on the back cover, who really ought to know better, have been blinded by the dazzling array of ancient scholars poets and painters mentioned inside. As usual, they…
