Description du produit
Revue de presse
“[Richard K.] Morgan brings a fresh approach to epic fantasy. . . . [The Cold Commands] should appeal to fans of George R. R. Martin’s Song of Ice and Fire series.”—Library Journal
“Pulpy and hard-core, but with a heart of gold . . . Imagine a drawing by Frank Frazetta, come to life in an intelligent story full of dry wit and characters you actually care about.”—io9
“Passionate, fast-paced, smart and furious . . . This is a character-driven and intelligent fantasy. . . . Robert E. Howard would have approved.”—SFX
“The action sequences are sheer brilliance. . . . Morgan’s writing has a power and energy that few can match.”—SFRevu --Ce texte fait référence à une édition épuisée ou non disponible de ce titre.
Présentation de l'éditeur
Ringil Eskiath, scarred wielder of the kiriath-forged broadsword Ravensfriend, is a man on the run - from his past and the family who have disowned him, from the slave trade magnates of Trelayne who want him dead, and apparently from the dark gods themselves, who are taking an interest but making no more sense than they ever have. Outlawed and exiled from his ancestral home in the north, Ringil has only one place left to turn - Yhelteth, city heart of the southern Empire, where perhaps he can seek asylum with the kiriath half-breed Archeth Indamaninarmal, former war comrade and now high-up advisor to the Emperor Jhiral Khimran II.
But Archeth Indamaninarmal has problems of her own to contend with, as does her house guest, bodyguard and one time steppe nomad Egar the Dragonbane. And far from gaining the respite he is seeks, Ringil will instead find himself implicated in fresh schemes and doubtful allegiances no safer than those he has left behind. Old enemies are stirring, the old order is rotted through and crumbling, and though no-one yet knows it, the city of Yhelteth is about to explode ...

More importantly is the lyrical writing. Skillful crafting of language in natural forms deceptively "real." I do not normally re read books, but this, like his other series, warrants another slide through alternate realities and long-arc narratives that only through time and length and detail show their ultimate worthiness.
did not care for this book so much either, not as good as his sci fi work which I liked a great deal, equal to The Steel Remains, which was disappointing as well. Thought that after the first one he would improve, but not. And the homosexual gimmick does not help. Softcore porn for the fans of Judy. won't bother with third of series.
And in the middle, there's a plot discontinuity that's on purpose - he's hiding something from the protagonist and the reader at the same time - or maybe trying to let the reader in on something that the protagonist hasn't himself acknowledged or recognized yet - but I actually had to say "wait a minute, WTF????" and back up to re-read a chapter or two, and it still didn't entirely make sense after. I was reading the Kindle version and worried that somehow the digital edition lost an entire chapter or was otherwise corrupted, it was that jarring.
Still, good author, very interesting (if ahem 'flavorful') characterization, unique fantasy setting and backstory that doesn't obviously lean on any predecessors. Still looking forward to the conclusion of the larger story arc, but this one left me scratching my head a little. I actually found some of the secondary characters taking on more interest than the 'main' one this time as well. Maybe he's got an overall plan that each volume will focus a bit more on a different one of the three predominant characters from the first.
