I m a college lecturer from England and a fan of all types of speculative fiction, most notably science fiction, horror sword and sorcery fantasy Where possible I try to blend these elements together in my own writing H P Lovecraft, Robert E Howard and Edgar Rice Burroughs were my first writing inspirations and recently The Last PDF/EPUB ² Frank Herbert and Clive Barker whose works I never grow tired.

    The blurb tells you the essence of the story, and the book does what it says it will There is action and adventure galore as the last synn reels from one encounter to another in search for his final revenge, and also his redemption However the pace of the book was just a bit fast for me, and I would have preferred a greater fleshing out of both the story and the characters, of a build up of emotion, different points of vi...

    I really enjoyed James McCormick s Last Synn The hero, Tashir, was for me a very fresh take on the epic hero His quest reminds the reader of ancient epic heroes like Beowulf, Odysseus, or Jason Yet, Tashir definitely embodies a darker side while also fighting a righteous cause One might even liken it to a series of adventures much like Sinbad or the Argonauts undertook.The book appeals both to an epic fantasy and a pure action and adventure audience The story is not...

    The last synn by James Austin McCormic A mysterious Lupine race, the Krall, descend on Avlan, destroying the historical peace between two kingdoms Only one force stands in their way, the Synn warriors Tashir is the last to fall, dying beneath the sword of the Krall prince himself.Yet death fails to claim the young warrior He wakes in a far off land, thousands of miles across the sea, an undead filled with a dark magic which grants him inhuman powers.With no recollection of what happened or the fate of his people, his thoughts return to his homeland.The odyssey back sees him battling demons, vampyres, elementals, sorcerers and ghouls.As he finally confronts the Krall Prince he realises...

    Bite sized bits of awesomeness The Last Synn is a textbook example of what a novella should read like Each chapter is essentially a short story traveling the same arc towards an epic conclusion From the beginning where bones are being broken my personal favorite to the end where bones are falling from the sky, The Last Synn delivers The main character is fleshed out very well, with just the right amount of frailty and power, while still standing out as unique something not easily accomplished when it comes to the undead I found the supporting characters easily relatable, with a balance of humor and loathing The setting is particularly notable being well painted and never stale, moving from the bowels of a forgotten fortress to a floating castle fit for the gods If you re the kind of person who doesn t have a lot of time to immerse themselves into lengthy chapters but still wants intense entertainment, ...

    An epic fantasy tale written in 4 4 time The novella length is probably your first clue that this tale moves much faster than most fantasy stories, but it needn t have been so in less capable hands As it is, most fantasy novels tend to be overly weighted down with too much descriptive writing and world building it s one of the genre s weaknesses that ensnares writers than not Not all writers fall into this trap, of course, and I was pleased that this author showed no signs of catching the disease.Despite the breakneck pace and the major story milestones hit with each chapter, the descriptive writing is still quite good and the pictures painted quite vivid Proving that one can do world building without weighing down fantasy writing with too much dead weight verbiage.The author certainly isn t out to reinvent the wheel here tropes are if anything all too familiar, with the dark forces empowered by ancient, dark magic descending on the land The good guys are elfin, as is so often the case, and our hero Synn is prototypically heroic Although in the case of the latter, our hero has been touched by evil, allowing him to see into the heart and mind of it The powers on display, the various forms of magic, the results of particular spells cast, all deliver a compelling punch The fast pace of the story is at times a double edged sword You can t let your at...

    It s like a 1,000 page novel crammed into a tenth of the space In spite of the novella form, the author feels no need to limit the number of adventures our wily protagonist embarks on, and the number of evil doers he is forced to confront.The initial concept is a nice one our hero seemingly dies before waking up in a foreign land with no idea of how he got there and who he has become His features are different, his memories have been altered So begins his quest to understand what happened, and to right the wrong And the mystery is not revealed until the final pages the end mirroring the begin...

    DARK MAGIC AND THE OLD ONESIn a departure from his Science Fiction genre books at which he excels, James McCormick has written a Fantasy story about the peace between two mythical Kingdoms being broken by one side, the Krall, who successfully wipe out Avlan Although the last warrior Tashir is mortally wounded, he survives only to awaken in a far off land and becomes an undead.Thank goodness he now possesses a dark magic which gives him inhuman powers, because he needs them as he does battle with every imaginable kind of foe.Firstly he defeats the evil Queen Averan, no mean task in anyone s language as she is one tricky shapeshifter, then he battles both human and demonic forces, including the Old Ones, before he secures his place in Ishka history and earns himself a warrior s funeral.No matter what genre he is writing in, James McCormick s stories are non stop action, proceeding at a breathless pace, so yo...
