Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for Andy Remic:

"It's a fast brutal fantasy adventure with some fun characters and some fantastic ideas. I am really excited to see the series develop." - Un:Bound

"I have already preordered the next book in the series as I really enjoyed reading this book. If you love Gemmell you will love Remic." - State of Review

" a bloody, violent, fantastic journey through carnage, terror, and a downright epic tale that makes Underworld and every zombie movie look bad... Remic is the Tarantino of fantasy, and if that isn't a compliment, then I don't know what is." - Fantasy & SciFi Lovin'

"Remic (The Clockwork Vampire) delivers the goods for fans of stark brutality and violence in a fantasy setting ... A cliffhanger ending promises more gritty action in future installments."
- Publishers Weekly (November 18, 2013)

I’m fine with some foul language but he seemed to use the F-word as a dialog filler.

So, Andy himself was kind enough to get me a pdf version of the book for review. And since I really loved the Combat K series, I figured this would be a lock. Yup! This story grabs you by the throat from the very first paragraph (literally) and doesn't let go. If you like a lot of action with just enough story to explain things but not be overly complex or detailed, you'll love this. I will say that if you're not a fan of raw writing, you might NOT like this. I am, so I had no problem. When I say raw, I don't just mean the language. I mean the way Andy describes things leaves no mystery. You can fully visualize action sequences, characters and the entire world. This will be one of those series that you'll rip through and want more.

The other thing I love about this in particular is that, it doesn't go out of it's way to make the hero this paragon of virtue. In fact, you'll probably be hard pressed to really like the characters until you get further in. But that's ok. Considering the type of world these folks inhabit, the way they are portrayed is accurate. It's a rough, brutal world, requiring hard, tough folk. So no martinis here!

In short: the story is at break-neck speed but you'll always know what's going on. It's detailed without being at all boring, the fight scenes are very visceral and believable and you'll be done in what seems like no time at all. You know you've got something special when you pick it up to read a few chapters and suddenly it's 2 AM. I can't wait for the next one in the series.

Holy crap, but The Iron Wolves was a hell of a lot of fun! It's as if Robert E. Howard and Fritz Leiber reached out from beyond the grave to collaborate on the kind pulp fantasy they perfected, decided to take Stallone's The Expendables as their inspiration, recruited Sam Raimi to direct the medieval mayhem, and then demanded that nothing short of the explicit, unrated director's cut make it into print.

What Andy Remic has pulled together here is absolutely genius. If you've read the cover blurb then you have some idea of what to expect but, like me, you probably wondered if he really could pull it off. Well, I am here to tell you to wonder no longer - pull it off he does . . . and then some!

Let's start with the heroes . . . such as they are. Thirty years ago, the Iron Wolves became the stuff of legends, holding back the hordes of monstrous mud-orcs at the Pass of Splintered Bones, and banishing Morkagoth, the evil sorcerer, from their world. That victory did not come without a price, however, and the curse they carry has left them broken and battered . . . tortured and twisted beyond measure - murderous brothers, a whoremaster, a drunken gambler, a drug addict with a cancer in her heart, a serial killer, and a torturer. They've become ugly heroes, scarred both inside and out, but they are the world's only help.

If that sounds like a little much for your tastes, then all I can do is urge you to have patience. Remic puts a lot of effort into developing these characters, and there is no denying how darkly fascinating they become, or how carefully they elicit our sympathy.

Cool title (I fell for it), very interesting creatures, intros into potentially badass warriors and then it all falls apart. There are so many starts and stops in the plots that it becomes confusing on what you are supposed to pay attention too and what is worth paying attention too further ruined by bad formatting that it provides a very unstable read like reading two different books at the same time, alternating pages with one another.

The first book is a convoluted mess of character introductions and minor, useless stories which takes you to a gathering of bad people that are meant to be the good guys. What happens to them really doesn't matter and why they come together matters even less. They go on their journey as if nothing ever happened since the last time they were together (20 years ago!) and renders all the stories beforehand pointless.

Then you hit the second book where suddenly they have a focus and determination to get to the real threat for no real reason other than someone asked them too. We find out they have something wrong with them, we find out they are skilled for a reason, we find out they are supposed to be an elite unit of warriors although there is no mention of this in the first 3/4 of the book. Why? Well that is saved for a rushed ending that briefly answers one thing but then nothing else while in fact raising more questions.

The first book was barely connected to the second with the forced merging happening at the Forest. The questions I came away with about the book are not the kind that would lead me to read Book 2. The ending was a joke and made me feel like reading the whole book was a waste of time. If it had all been tied together better then maybe it would have been an average read. A bummer too because this book has a lot of elements that would make for a fantastic world to follow.
