Goodreads Review: Richard Morgan’s The Steel Remains

The Steel Remains The Steel Remains by Richard Morgan

My review


rating: 4 of 5 stars
Richard K. Morgan has brought his unique brand of politics, amazing world-building, graphic violence and even more graphic sex to the fantasy genre and nails it.

This is the first book in a trilogy but it ends in a way that makes it a satisfying book all on its own. I dig that. I’m done with Dark Tower cliff-hangers. When I put down this book, I was hungry for another but satisfied with where I was left.

And when I say I’m in, I mean that as soon as the book is released, as this one was, a few months earlier in England, I will jump on amazon.com/uk or ask my cousin to pick it up for me.

Sidenote: Thank you, Jocelyn for sending the book to me.

If swords & sorcery, half-breed immortals, capricious gods, imperial politicking, evil slave-traders, creatures from an otherworld and a kick-ass gay swordsman of Omar-like proportions sound like fun to you, pick it up and read it.

As Omar Little from The Wire would say, “Oh, indeed.”
