The Brutal Art by Jesse Kellerman|
It spellbound me at the beginning. Then it became really slow and rather boring. Then it picked up near the end only to nosedive once more. The initial premise has a lot of potential. Then it gets lost in flashback and dull love stories.
Dies the Fire by S. M. Stirling
A post-apocalyptic tale with a heavy focus on medieval warfare. All technology is broken by some strange unexplained phenomenon. Even gunpowder and steam engines cease to function. I wasn't too keen on the slight supernatural theme but there is plenty of good things for any post-apocalypse fan.
It's not trashy Outbreak or Mad Max mohawks and studded leather. The heavy focus on warfare and farming gets a little tiring. But not enough from stoping me from reading the next two books in the series.
