Ever since Michael Moorcock, I’ve been a little bit jaded about stories with anti-heroes or where all the protagonists are varying dark shades of grey. Still, this series is a fun read, being the bastard offspring of Glen Cook’s Dark Company series and Clive Barker’s Hellraiser with a healthy dollop of steampunk sensibility. In that regard, I found the scenes of warfare to be reminiscent of Swanwick’s “The Iron Dragon’s Daughter”. In all, this particular book hangs together well and supplies a somewhat satisfying ending.
