Stranger of Tempest eBook Ý Stranger of Epub /

Lynx is a mercenary with a sense of honour; a dying breed in the Shattered Kingdom Failed by the nation he served and weary of the skirmishes that plague the continent's principalities he walks the land in search of purpose He wants for little so bodyguard work keeps his belly full and his mage gun loaded It might never bring a man fame or wealth but he's not forced to rely on others or kill without cause Little could compel Lynx to join a mercenary company but he won't turn his back on a kidnapped girl At least the job seems simple enough; the mercenaries less stupid and vicious than most he's met over the years So long as there are no surprises or hidden agendas along the way it should work out fine Stranger of Tempest

    There's definitely a great story in here somewhere Mage guns monsters gods and god fragments It could've been great but it just fell down on delivery Characters are very boring and cliched the narrative structure could've been simpler but above all it all felt a bit aimless A pity What I would've done although I'm hardly an author I do know a good tale is to have explaination over what the god fragments are f

    The dreaded DNF pile I read 25% of this book and wasn't getting into it at all I went away for the weekend and upon coming back home the thought of picking this up and reading another 75% made me dread to think how long it would be before I finished it The plot is a little generic but the writing style starts off well enough Things just rapidly went down hill and disappeared along with my interest It may have picked

    If you could judge a book by its cover then Tom Lloyd’s Stranger of Tempest would be one of the finest books of the year unuestionably However we all know that doing this – judging a book by its cover – is a sin So instead you need to read the thousands upon thousands of words inside in order to make your mind up and just hope really hope that the humongous demon standing before the dude with the gun on the front

    Heads will roll because someone definitely lied about how awesome this book isFirst off i loved Lynx it wasn't so much that he could kick ass but that the book presented him with vulnerabilities Ever so often you're able to glimpse the measure of the man Lynx is to have gone through so much but still come out of it with his sense of right and wrong still intact I've seen right i've seen wrong I've seen life i've seen deat

    Picked this up on a whim in a Waterstone’s having seen considerable praise for it on the internet New and shiny as it was it obviously shot to the top of my TBR pile and I started it in the next few days In short I read it in about 3 sittings and absolutely loved it The very first page pulled me in and made me laugh both to an extent unmatched by any book I’ve read up until now Hot off having finished Glen Cook’s The Chro

    Couldn't really get going with this one The magic system is cool the characters are a little cliched and one dimensional but still likeable The world seemed very cool with a military type feel My issue was the structure It just seemed a little too complicated for the story it was telling
