Book Review: The Weight of Blood by David Daglish
My rating: 9 of 10 stars
I really enjoyed this novel. I enjoyed so much that I order through amazon the next four novels of this quintet (not counting with the sixth book that is going to be released because I really don't know if it's a begginning of a new trilogy or stand alone book with the same characters.
This is how dark fantasy novel should be. Weight of Blood is a tale about two brothers, half-orc, half-elf, who don't fit any of those worlds. One of the brothers Qurrah it's a Necromancer and Harruq it's a fighter (he isn't but soon learns how to be).
The brotheres kill a lot (mass murderers), including children. There is also great display of magic (necromancer) and so we really can't put them in the anti-heroes class. They are evil. Qurrah knows he is doing evil deeds and Harruq does the killing for his brother, and he has the power to decline so...
Side-Note: The similiraties with Caramon/Raistlin from Dragonlance are many. Raistlin being a powerful
Believe me when I say this is a good book. Similar to some of Warhammer fiction like CL Werner novels life Wulfrik, Palace of the Plague Lord or even the Grey Seer novels.
