The world is in turmoil. In the east the savage Merduks, followers of the Prophet Ahrimuz, have captured the holy city of Aekir. The western kingdoms are too distracted by internecine bickering to intervene and the Chruch seems more obsessed with rooting out heresy. It is an age where men go to the stake for the taint of magic in their blood, where gunpowder and cannon co-exit with werewolves and sorcerers. It is the turning point when two get reilgions will fight to the death and the common folk will struggle to merely survive.

Started very slowly, but picked up considerably around the mid-point, and continued its frantic pace to the very end. Once things got going, I found it hard to put down. Read full review
Review: Hawkwood and the Kings (The Monarchies of God #1-2)User Review - Ben - Goodreads
This is one of the best books I've read in recent memory. It's a shame that Kearney is not more well known among fantasy readers. I think his writing is every bit as good as George RR Martin. Read full review
