    1. I have yet to read a Stover book I haven't liked, but I didn't love this entry. Part 1 was rather slow, but Part 2 picked up considerably for a tremendous conclusion. If there was an option for 3.5 stars on this forum, that's what I'd give "Iron Dawn," but it just wasn't quite four stars for me.


    2. Not bad for his first book. I'd rate this guy somewhere between two and three stars. The book kept my interest and had a lot of great stuff going for it: clever dialogue, plenty of action, and a compelling story without gaping plot holes. The characters did seem a tad bit flat--Stover makes some effort to round them out, but simply doesn't quite make them (or their troubles) compelling enough. Leucas in particular didn't really show any personality beyond the basic warrior archetype. Kheperu had [...]


    3. A good story from a favorite author. It begins slowly and picks up pace slowly. This is a standard heroic fantasy story, almost sword and sorcery. Toward the middle of the book the profanity seemed to come out, so if that offends you then be sure to stay away, but otherwise it was a solid good read. This one didn't grab me like the Caine novels but a good read none the less.


    4. With all the trappings of a terrible fantasy novel (bad name and cover art) I'd never have picked this book up if it wasn't written by Stover. It started a little slow, but turned out to be a great read. I'm looking forward to the next in the series, the (yet again) terribly named Jericho Moon.


    5. The book started out somewhat slow, but it had some good action scenes and character moments.I also liked how it was set in an altered history, referencing various battles and such from pre-A.D. times and just adding magic or subtle changes to suit the story.Overall, I recommend this to fantasy fans who want something more down-to-earth than your typical dungeon raids and dragon-slaying.


    6. Fun bit of fantasy. This is not quite my genre, but it was well written. The author had great detail and story telling.


    7. Uma das coisas que mais busco em um romance de fantasia é a sensação de estar lendo algo diferente, uma nova forma de usar os temas tradicionais desse tipo de narrativa. A grande profusão de livros de fantasia faz com que os clichês contaminem muitos autores. Clichês surgem principalmente da preguiça dos autores em se esforçar para criar algo diferente, ou pelo menos retrabalhar os elementos tradicionais em uma forma que fique interessante para os leitores mais veteranos de fantasia.Não [...]


    8. I gave up re-reading this book on page 250, not because the book was awful, but because I can't stay awake while reading it. I'm honestly baffled by it.This is a good book. This is my second time reading it, actually. The first time was in 2012 while I was on vacation and I thought this book was incredible. I still do think it's incredible, I swear, I just can't get through it.What I really love about this book is the sheer diversity of the characters. A Pict, an Athenian, and an Egyptian are th [...]


    9. A quick read, a great mix of sword & Sorcery in a historical (ish) backdrop. Characters are deeper than you'd expect, but not so deep as to bog down the plot. Plot is slow to get moving, and ends abruptly, but on the whole everything is good fun. Stover writes action brilliantly as usual.Doesn't hurt the score that my D&D party basically mirrors the 3 main characters too. It'srather uncanny actually.
