Book Review: The Dark Blood

The Dark Blood by A.J. Smith
The 2nd in the ‘Chronicles of the Long War’ saga is utter boring crap. All the Lovecraft creepiness and darkness of ‘The Black Guard’ is flushed away is favour of violence, misogyny, idiot comedy and padding. This tome gave me no desire to read any subsequent books in this saga.

Best Lines:
“I rarely communicate with lesser flesh.”

“You have seen the world as it is and as it will be.”

“Are their names chosen solely to sound scary?”

“Show no mercy, for you shall receive none.”
