What does friendship mean?

Is it sticking up for your cohorts in time of need? Is it putting aside differences and trying to find a common ground? Is it a solemn smile or a firm slap across the face when the other starts to stray? Is it setting aside your own fears and convictions, even though everything about you says to get away, because deep down you just trust this person, for better or worse?

These are the questions David Dalglish asks in Night of Wolves, the first book in his new Paladins series.

With this series, it seems Dalglish is going down a Memento path when it comes to his characters' stories - aka going backward. This particular book is the tale of Jerico, the paladin of Ashhur we first met (and fell in love with) in The Death of Promises. Wolves takes a few years before the events in the Half-Orc series, and introduces a major plot point that those who've digested Dalglish's work might find unbelievable.

A friendship between paladins of the two polar gods, Ashhur and Karak.

Jerico, it seems, has befriended a young man named Darius while both are stationed in the farming town of Durham, preaching the messages of their particular religions. Theirs is a relationship built upon mutual respect - they learn from each other, protect each other, help each other grow...the gods be damned. And when the wolf-men from the Vile Wedge start crossing the river, threatening the lives of the townsfolk, they must work together even more so than before, which causes just a few moral dilemmas within each of them. But work together they do, because they both realize that without their combined strength, the good men and women of Durham don't stand a chance.

As a lover of fantasy genre, I was recomended to read something from David Dalgish. This book seemed quite interesting so I picked it for like .99. While reading, I had to put the book down several times and force myself to read it through (just an interesting point - I fell asleep two times while reading this book). The characters are deeply uninteresting and shallow. Paladin of Ashur is good-hearted and kind, paladin of Karak is cocky and undecisive when it comes to something other than killing. That's all about two main characters... Sadly, uninteresting is also plot - two paladins kills one man-like wolf and this sets series of actions that are all the same or similar - they kill one, then they kill several of them and at the end, they are facing all of them. The pacing is slow and the story is boring. Basically nothing happens until the main battle which is at the end of the book (page like 180-190/217). Settings is very uninteresting since it is dull and boring. There isn't single place that is important for the story (except the village and the Wedge itself) nor single place that would be memorable. I'm baffled by such high rating this book has.. Does it really deserves such a high rating? Sorry, but I don't think so.

*spoiler*
The wolf-men are very strangely depicted - firstly, they are described as nearly godlike creatures when Paladin of Ashur has troubles taking down ONE, but then, they stand up to like 200 of them. Strange, huh?

This was an odd book. The writing was generally good. One of the main plots was pretty fun. Even the POV from the werewolves was good, and while the werewolves didn't all that different than humans to me, they felt different enough to sell it. Plus, their dialogue was often amusingly bloodthirsty.

I had a minor quibble with the writing every now and again when it seemed hokey, or when the dialogue seemed too modern. Then again, the author was not laying on the "ye olde" speech, so maybe he never meant them to sound anything but modern and this was just me being married to the tropes of the fantasy genre. I can admit it, and that was perfectly easy to look past.

A much more major problem was that the book tried to have two full main plots, and not have them be related. That, unfortunately, just does not work. The plot with the werewolves and the village is fine, even pretty darn good at points. Simple, but that's not always bad. It would be a good light fantasy tale on its own. But in addition to that we had _another_ plot, which was much more epic in scope yet told sparingly, concerning Gods and paladins and a big holy war. Yet it is in the background, and seemingly unrelated - despite the fact that one of the gods created the werewolves in the first place, and a couple other reasons that led me to believe he would eventually tie all the events together. Instead, the schism bothered me right up to and past the end of the book, when even more stuff jumps out of nowhere and in fact the whole gods and religion thing suddenly rears up and tries to resume the focus. Sorry, doesn't work like that.

This is the third series of his that I have read, and I enjoy each one more than the last. He really seems to be maturing as an author, and I appreciate that he is shedding his unwillingness to protect all his favorite tertiary characters from harm. This book is well worth the time to read.
