Review ☆ Son of the Black Sword Í PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free #1 IN A NEW EPIC FANTASY SERIES from Monster Hunter series creator and New York Times best selling author Larry CorreiaAfter the War of the Gods the demons were cast out and fell to the world Mankind was nearly eradicated by the seemingly unstoppable beasts until the gods sent the great hero Ramrowan to save them He united the tribes gave them magic and drove the demons into the sea Ever since the land has belonged to man and the oceans have remained an uncrossable hell leaving the continent of Lok isolated It was prophesized that someday the demons would return and only the descendants of Ramrowan would be able to defeat them They became the first kings and all men served those who were their only hope for survivalAs centuries passed the descendants of the great hero grew in number and power They became tyrannical and cruel and their religion nothing but an excuse for greed Gods and demons became myth and legend and the people no longer believed The castes created to serve the Sons of Ramrowan rose up and destroyed their rulers All religion was banned and replaced by a code of unflinching law The surviving. Larry Correia is an author best known for his guns and monsters no holds barred testosterone soaked urban fantasy sagas Monster Hunter International and the Grimnoir Chronicles For those who were curious as to how he d make the transition from guns to swords Son of the Black Sword is pretty much everything you d expect with his macho sense of almost superhuman bravado slipping well into a pulpy heroic fantasy worldIt s not great literature and lacks a certain polish in the narrative but it s an engaging bit of fantasy fictionThe world building and mythology encompass a very South Asian flavored world which is a nice change of pace from mostly European fantasy but there s an important twist instead of the seas providing prosperity and purpose they are something to be feared dotting the coasts and the beaches with the cobbled together hovels of the lowest of non people You see due to an age old supernatural pact man commands the land demons command the seas and the Law states that any who trespass must die Lok is a bland bureaucratic world full of rigid caste systems where faith and superstition are forbidden It s so deliberately constructed that if you don t see the threat of rebellion coming in the first few chapters and don t anticipate the rise of a prophesied hero then you re clearly not aware of the genre s central tropesAs part of the mythology ancestor blades are a relic of the days before that pact Only one of these rare blades can pierce a demon s hide and they carry within them the skills and instincts of those who wielded the blades before Whereas authors like Moorcock and Sanderson have done some really fascinating things with such weapons using them to elevate the narrative to another level here they just come across as another fantasy trope Not bad in and of themselves but certainly a bit of a cheat in justifying that almost superhuman bravado On that note Ashok is a serviceable hero with at least the beginnings of a significant character development arc but he lacks the kind of personality that makes for a truly engaging protagonistUltimately this was an interesting read with enough top notch action scenes to keep me engaged through to the end but it s just a little too serious and straightforward I didn t find any sense of wonder or awe in the magic or the monsters no personality in the protagonist no real appreciation for the plot twists and no humor ironic self depreciating or otherwise to distinguish the narrative I don t see myself continuing with the series but I m certainly willing to give his other series a shot Originally reviewed at The Speculative Herald Disclaimer Thanks to Angry Robot for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review

Ahoy there mateys Thought I would take a break from the e Arc extravaganza Though the first mate and I have very different reading tastes occasionally we do recommend books to each other Books the first mate introduced to me included xom b holes and the perks of being a wallflower He and I both read this oneWe were talking about the book and I enjoyed his viewpoint so I ordered him to write a review So you get one from me and a bonus additional review from me crew Please note that I write like I talk and the first mate writes like he thinks Hope you enjoyFrom the CaptainThis was a recommendation by me first mate A fun time was had reading this book There is a sentient sword that I adore Even if it has a funny name Everyone wants to own this sword but beware making the choice to pick it up The sword chooses who will wield it and the conseuences tend to be bloody and unfortunate for those not worthyAshok Vadal is the main character He starts out as a seemingly simplistic character that embodies the Law However the Law is not as it seems and is complicated than expected Ashok is probably one of the weirdest characters I have read about in terms of his world view and motivations This is part of what makes him awesome His choices get harder and harder throughout the book and how and why he chooses what to do is some of the best parts of the bookAshok has a complicated relationship with Devedas his best friend Devedas was another highlight of the book Is he a good guy Is he a bad guy Only time will tell Devedas has a sad past is ambitious and is subject to envy Reading his perspective is a fun counterpoint to AshokThe bad guy priest is sort of stereotypical I also found the assassins to be an annoying group with an interesting premise However I still enjoyed this book In particular I liked the magic system Oh and there is a cool librarian so bonus for that A fluff book with a little bit of depth I will certainly read the next in the seriesFrom the First MateHaving greatly enjoyed Larry Correia s Monster Hunter series and mostly enjoyed his first foray into high fantasy Into the Storm I approached Son of the Black Sword with somewhat mixed feelings On the one hand I rather like his writing style and am always eager to read of the writers whose work I enjoy On the other outside of the Monster Hunter series Correia s work hasn t really grabbed meSon of the Black Sword much like Into the Storm before it is an enjoyable tale that is somewhat hampered by the ever present desire on this reader s part to ponder its endless influences Like many a reader I couldn t uite stop seeing Ashok as a Judge Dredd knock off almost to the point of expecting him to cry out I am the LAW at than a few moments The presence of the Swords and their possible origins reminded me so very much of Fred Saberhagen s trilogy about world changing swords The Inuisitors have many parallels in fantasy but it was the Mord siths from Terry Goodkind s Wizard s First Rule that seemed the most apt comparison what with the special ceremonial attire and hyper specific and grotesue social role And on and onRegardless of from where Correia may have drawn various inspirations the story and the characters are interesting and entertaining Our good guys are uite likable and our villains are despicable We even get a few shades of grey characters who are well drawn Where the novel disappoints is only in comparison to Correia s better work Son of the Black Sword works through many standard high fantasy tropes but never uite deconstructs nor spins them in a way that would elevate the work to something other than a well written run of the mill high fantasy novel Very enjoyable as long as you re not expecting any new ground to be brokenAfter reading the novel though I knew I had to recommend it to the Captain Why you may ask Well any novel that uses saltwater as a curse surely will make the Captain smileIf ye liked this review check out me others at

As Larry Correia s biggest fan I ve been looking forward to his fantasy debut for a while now If I remember properly he s been teasing fans talking about it on his blog for a couple years now at least Judging by how incredibly large scale Larry s urban fantasy and alternate history novels have been I ve been eager to see what he could do with straight up fantasy I can happily say that SON OF THE BLACK SWORD will not disappoint the Monster Hunter Nation and it will also likely earn Larry a lot of new fans from the fantasy genreHere s the plot synopsis After the War of the Gods the demons were cast out and fell to the world Mankind was nearly eradicated by the seemingly unstoppable beasts until the gods sent the great hero Ramrowan to save them He united the tribes gave them magic and drove the demons into the sea Yet as centuries passed Gods and demons became myth and legend and the people no longer believed The Age of Law beganAshok Vadal has been chosen by a powerful ancient weapon to be its bearer He is a Protector the elite militant order of roving law enforcers No one is merciless in rooting out those who secretly practice the old ways Everything is black or white good or evil until he discovers his entire life is a fraud Ashok isn t who he thinks he is and when he finds himself on the wrong side of the law the conseuences lead to rebellion war and destruction Ashok seems like a deceptively simple character Trained by an Order of warrior monks and chosen by the ancestor blade Angruvadal to be its bearer Ashok is peerless He is the best of the Protectors a perfect soldier that carries out orders without uestion The massacres he has perpetrated in obedience to the Law have earned him the nickname Black Heart On the surface he could appear one dimensional but this couldn t be further from the truth The truth is that Ashok shares literary DNA with Toru the disgraced samurai from The Grimnoir Chronicles and Agent Franks from Monster Hunter International my two favorite Correia characters Ashok starts out as a tool a weapon but this is purposeful When Ashok s world is turned upside down by a terrible truth his unflinching devotion to the law serves to really complicate matters for him and everyone else There s a certain humor to Ashok despite his stoic no nonsense attitude or perhaps because of it We have a protagonist that believes so fiercely in the Law that he voluntarily turns himself in to the authorities upon committing a crime imprisoning himself in a jail that could not possibly contain him He s not a good man by any means Over the 20 years he has served as a Protector he slaughtered countless men women and children for a number of offenses And yet this is the man that has been fated to lead a rebellion that will free millions of casteless from tyranny There s a prophecy but it s a nice twist on the typical simple innocent farm boy who will rise to defeat evil Ashok has a fulfilling character arc over the course of SON OF THE BLACK SWORD and there s still much room for him yet to grow as the series continues Correia novels are notorious for ensemble casts of colorful characters in the case of the Monster Hunter series several of the supporting characters have been so successful as to earn their own spin off novels MONSTER HUNTER ALPHA and MONSTER HUNTER NEMESIS SON OF THE BLACK SWORD introduces a handful of potentially amazing characters though the book would have benefitted from giving them a greater focus A lot of time is wisely spent developing Ashok but the others are given considerably less attention I m very interested to learn about Jagdish the twice dishonored warrior Rada the antisocial archivist Keta the Keeper of Names and Thera the mysterious mercenary Regardless this is only the first book of the series and there is plenty of time and opportunity to further flesh out these characters I also look forward for to be revealed about Grand Inuisitor Omand Sikasso the assassin and their motivations come the seuel Correia writes some of the absolute best multi dimensional villains you can find in genre fiction Those fantasy readers who have grown tired of white bread pseudo European settings should rejoice because SON OF THE BLACK SWORD has a very obvious Asian flavor to it for reasons that are hinted at over the course of the novel I believe that it s safe to say that the Writer Nerd Game Night s Legend of the Five Rings fan fiction has had a major influence on the creation of this world in the best possible wayThere are lots of fun nuggets of world building Demons dwell in the ocean and as a result mankind has been confined to land for centuries Demons occasionally strike forth from the depths and wreak havoc on coastal cities Only the lowest of the low are condemned to live near water Fish eater is used as a derogatory term while ocean and saltwater are used as curses Another awesome aspect of SON OF THE BLACK SWORD is the titular black sword Ancestor blades are extremely rare relics They are the only weapons capable of easily parting demon flesh and bearers have access to the instincts of all those to have wielded the sword before them These black swords such as Ashok s Angruvadal are the ultimate weaponstatus symbol and they are a major driving force of the plot I will admit that terms like Inuisition and Protector could have been substituted for something better fitting of the setting but that s a minor nitpick The continent of Lok is ruled not by a brutal tyrant but instead by an uncaring bureaucracy Religion and superstition are illegal punishable by death and the Law dictates every aspect of daily life A rigid caste system maintains order and at the bottom of the hierarchy are the casteless These untouchables aren t even considered human and as a result they are treated as property less valuable than livestock For hundreds of years the casteless have lived brief meaningless lives toiling in fear but a Prophet has been chosen and the rebellion ignited The history of Lok is obscured to all but a select few though myths and legends are difficult to stamp out entirely This wouldn t be a very good review of a Correia book if I neglected to talk about the action When you open SON OF THE BLACK SWORD be sure to wear a parka because you re going to be bathed in buckets of blood With his magical sword and Protector training Ashok is the sort of protagonist to do Conan proud There s a running melee through a mountain town between Ashok and an army of raiders at the end of the book that lives up to Correia s trademark set piece battles What I appreciate most is that the protagonists are given logical reasons for being able to surviving pitched combat that would fell an ordinary man or woman in moments It s fantasy sure but that doesn t mean it has to be unbelievable The plotting is as deft as it s ever been Correia s writing only continues to approve with every new release There are a couple of awesome twists including one with some major implications that I truly did not see coming Hints are dropped over the course of the novel relating to the true nature of things but there are a lot of uestions in need of answering SON OF THE BLACK SWORD delivers a fun and fulfilling sword sorcery tale while setting the stage for something even greater for the seuels to come Correia thinks BIG and I m confident that Saga of the Forgotten Warrior book two will serve to ramp up the scale to mammoth proportions Recommended Age 14Language I only remember a few minor curses beyond the made up ones Violence Robert E Howard levels of violence Sex Hinted at but not shown Nick SharpsElitist Book Reviews
