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)

Customer Reviews

Without question, the story that Andy Remic weaves from this intriguing beginning is a well written and gore packed grimdark fantasy.
W. Adams
Great cast of characters who were all very interesting and unique and several were able to make me care about their stories and what happens to them.
P. Witvliet
Remic has a solid fantasy plot line to build around but then tries to make up for a lack of character development by using way too many adjectives.

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.

"The Iron Wolves" is the latest addition to the “grimdark” wave of fantasy that is taking over the shelves these days. These novels are bloodier, grittier and supposedly more “realistic” than the epic fantasy of the past with characters that are either morally ambivalent or just plain sadistic. While that sounds either exciting or disturbing based upon your viewpoint, these tropes of grimdark are not necessarily good or bad by themselves; the ability of the writer to take these elements and weave them into a coherent, gripping tale is still what matters the most, as it always has with any novel. That is why for every excellent examples of stunning grimdark fantasy penned by authors such as Joe Abercrombie and Mark Lawrence there is a grimdark book that has splashed blood across the pages yet been abject failures. As for "The Iron Wolves", it is not a masterpiece of the genre but is far from its worst representative.

The story itself focuses on the surviving members of the Iron Wolves. Twenty years or so ago, the Kingdom of Vagandrak was invaded by Morkagoth, an evil sorcerer, and his army of monstrous mud-orcs. The only thing that saved the land was the Iron Wolves, who held back the man-eating hordes at the Pass of Splintered Bones and somehow banished Morkagoth from the world. The surviving Wolves became heroes. Their names revered by all the people. Epic tales of their heroic stand sung around the land. And off into the glorious sunset our heroes rode with their duly earned rewards of gold, titles of nobility, and a life of well-earned peace, far away from the world of violence that they had been forced to endure.

But things are never quite that simple in the real world.
