..this book was great. I'm writing this because there are not many reviews for this book and it is indeed a book worth reading. i saw it on amazon shortly after it was released but passed over it a few time before getting it. i passed it over mainly this was because of two reasons: I saw that it was based off the Warhammer universe and figured it was nothing more then a slasher blood and gore type a book; second reason is because the Description of this book is really lacking.

This series is about two young(naive) twins finding their own unique way in the world amidst politics and other titanic forces that try to shape their lives. The series also follows a few other characters along the way showing how each of them feel. EVERY character feels real and unique. Some of the bad guys are not all evil and some of the good guys are not all perfect. the author really makes you feel and identify with each character.

I have probley read over 1000 fantasy/sci-fi in my time and while i would not stay this is the best series i have ever read; i would say this series is for you if you enjoy epic fantasy/swords-magic. first book has fighting but it is more about the journey but don't worry you will not get bored. 2nd 3d book has more fighting. im looking forward to the next books in this series.

few sex scenes but was done tastefully and left the details to the imagination.

this is the third part of the tyrion & teclis series. The story itself is pretty good and action paced. however there are things that get built up and than fizzle out without the expected bang. The one thing that really bugged me was throughout the series its the story of the two twins. all of a sudden in this book they are just "pieces" on a magic chessboard between death and a dead guy. kinda of a thread the author threw in that just doesnt seem to fit in with the other books

This book was... not great. It wasn't *bad*, mind you, but I agree with other reviewers when they said it was a disappointing follow up to Sword of Caledor and Blood of Aenarion. The biggest problem I had is that there are a ton of plot points introduced or continued from the other two books which just lead no where. The best example of this is when ten wizards are sent to find Tyrion and Alarielle. It leads no where. Absolutely no where. They are introduced, given five or so pages to set up just how bad ass they are as if they are going to be a game changing dynamic in the book, and then they are killed without consequence a chapter later. I really get the sense in this book that William King either had a lot more material which he just couldn't put in the last book (making it feel rushed) or not enough inspiration to really connect everything together.

That being said, there is plenty of good in the book. Some moments are extremely suspenseful, well crafted, and just plain awesome. It is definitely worth the read if you have already invested in the other two. Just don't expect anything great.

Overall, coming off Blood of Aenarion and Sword of Caledor, i found Bane of Malekith a bit lighter than the other two. However, this is not at all a bad thing. Fans of Warhammer and High Elves in particular know exactly where the story is going. EXACTLY. This story's overview at the least, and indeed a fairly decent almost-short-story has been in every High Elves Army book since like 1992 (or whenever their first book came out). Blood and Sword were much meatier because they were new stories.

I very much appreciated the presentation of Tyrion in this book. Far more relatable, but still him. Alarielle was a revelation. No more just a mere Warhammer version of Galadriel, she has some substance now. She's more than simply the elf maiden who Tyrion protects in. And that makes me like her even more. Teclis is also great. He comes into his own in this book, and he is both scary and impressive.
Was a little disappointed with the emphasis on General Dorian, found those perspectives were the weakest. Malekith's were great. More Morathi would have been better. But her fewer appearances had more bite than some of her previous scenes. Would have liked more of Urian though. He was the biggest character to receive almost no screen time and only once from his perspective.
