The plot moves from one predictable event to another, and the characters are characterless pawns on a chessboard with a set game. I wonder if anyone at any point doubted that Thirrin would persuade the potential allies to joining her, let alone if anyone anticipated the outcome of any of the battles.
Moreover: the logic of the plot escapes me. First the whole city is evacuated and the inhabitants make a tiresome march to the safety of the north, to escape invasion.
Apart from the fact that this is damn stupid, it also has no consequences: the capital is taken by the enemy well, it was EMPTY , who then leaves it we learn later that the ghosts had some part in driving the enemy out, which actually could be a nice touch, if the author had written it better , and gets annihilated in a battle in the forest. However, when the army goes back in a matter of weeks having the whole populace of a big city relocated to a smaller one without any economic problems whatsoever , there is no sign of the battle, even though all those corpses covered in snow and ice should make a gruesome view.
For some time the capital is empty but the Enemy does not think about repopulating it they don't have to storm it anymore, since it's EMPTY , so conveniently the Icemarkians come down and simply march in, and the city is fully functionable despite its abandonment in the middle of a very hard winter.
Then the small province of the north supplies the army with food, fodder and anything else, the drafted army performs like a professional one after several weeks of training, we get a tedious and over-extended not to mention unconvincing to downright stupid from the military point of view description of the battle of Minas Tirith Frostmarris and the book ends. At first glance I expected to enjoy the world: the combination of a developed Roman Polipontian Empire, with cannons and muskets, with a Vikingland Icemark featuring some Viking and some Celtic elements, the Amazons Hyppolitans relocated to the north, and some kind of Greek-like south was promising.
Add to it sufficiently original werewolves and vampires - all this looks quite well. If only these lands were inhabited by people and not stereotypes And if the author had not fallen into one of my most hated pits: of creating a wise, old and perfect race of talking animals.
And if the author had not fallen into one of my most hated pits: of creating a wise, old and perfect race of talking animals. I could not bear the Snow Leopards at all, sorry fans.
Still, the idea to use as many cultures as possible is a good one, but please Mr. Hill, add some life to your world and characters! And now comes the worst: unlike many people who wrote reviews here I AM a fan of military history from antiquity to the 19th century , and what I got deserved a huge laugh at best but mostly a huge facepalm.
The author is an archaeologist it shows, but it does not guarantee good writing , but has no idea about strategy, tactics, logistics and warfare in general. Moreover, he makes the mistake beginner's perhaps that he mostly multiplies the numbers of troops instead of thinking about tactics; and what is even worse, he declares throughout the book that the evil and cruel general of the Enemy, a certain Scipio Bellorum, is a military genius.
The problem is, Mr.
Bellorum's tactics are as naive and silly as it gets, and any army would have him hung or murdered for the way he treats his officers, in the matter of weeks. A lesson for Mr. Hill to learn from history books: all great commanders who lasted long were loved by their armies, not just feared, and certainly not feared for their madness and cruelty - this generally guarantees quick mutiny, even if the captain wins battles.
Oh, and I forgot to say that a small city with a tiny garrison withstands ten days of siege when their walls had been breached in several places by a huge army.
