Pawn off of a favorite Character
Being a big fan of the Darkblade saga, from the all the way back to the graphic novel days. I had to read the next book to feature this character. (If you are familiar with the End Times in warhammer then you already know how the story ends and it is not the ending in which I am disappointed.) My biggest issue is with the Author not being able to portray Malus as the anti-protagonist I have come to know and love. The book feels like a different character through out and a shoddy attempt to tie up loose ends without respect for the work the story is built upon.
