KINDLE Lord of Slaughter

Lord of Slaughter The Wolfsangel Cycle #3 Ths lead to the sualid prison deep below the city where a man who believes he is a wolf lies chained Each time I dive into the mad bloody and frightening world Mark has created involving psychotic gods beastly murders and damned love I wonder if with each seuel he writers to Wolfsangel he himself is being taken over by the hanged god Odin with all his insatiable appatite for fates to be twisted and sealed If this is the case it does clearly show in this third installment of a series that yet to has any kind of official name oddly enough but like the god Odin himself fans may know it by many namesI am very pleased to say that there is another very strong Viking presence in this lengthly saga although I'm still wondering as the centuries role by how Mark will ever evade the presence of a norse warrior if these old gods and their schemes are to progressThe best part though is that this nordic tale is performed in a very un norse like land that of Constantinople aka Istanbul or Miklagard 'Great City' as the vikings would have known it And it does still have some grounding in the previous book which took place in and around Paris in that the central characters are mainly Norman Almost civilised descendants of vikings who settled and founded Normandy after a deal with a Frankish King to get them to go away ironically enoughI can't say for other readers but due to the complex beauty of Mark's plot and theme I did often try to work out before I was even half way who was the wolf man who was the man wolf who was the unlucky woman in all of this and who indeed would turn into a one eyed dude waiving a spear But of course Mark wouldn't let it be that easy at least not in the first half as there are definitely characters entwined than the previous two which did blurr things a bit After the half way point I gave up guessing and started repeating the mantra 'it will all make sense in the end' which it did with some relief An end which had the build up of a hundred earthuakes and the eruptive force of a hundred volcanoes in drama tension horror and the most important aspect of all death It's the way his writing grips you despite the gore the misery the pain and the horror you can't not turn the next page to learn if anyone survived and it's why I read the second half in one sitting and didn't finish it till midnightFans of the first two will definitely not be disappointed with this third episode and I amongst them will be scratching my head hard with puzzlement and excitement as to how Mark will follow this up; as this ending although the prophecy was fulfilled it did leave a few loose threads in his tapestry of cursed fate that will bring fresh life and indeed blood I hope in his next book
