It's not often that we get to revel in the villain. Bloodaxe is a delightfully misogynistic cad, whose observations about life and people are surprisingly direct and spot on. For all he paints himself as a simple hack-and-slash sort of guy, he's very complex, and there's more to this hard exterior than meets the eye. He may be more interested in stomping problems into a bloody pulp than talking about his feelings, but he's savvy enough to know that shooting the golden goose leaves him with far less resources to do the things he loves.

Though he has few redeeming qualities, he's a very likable character, one who suffers fools very poorly, and rewards those have the temerity not to fall at his feet in simpering adoration. He even goes so far as to suffer pangs of regret as he has to behead an enemy he actually respects.

If I have any complaints at all, it's that the story was too short, and his mother appears far too rarely for my taste. I adored her, and wanted to know so much more about her and her history, because clearly no ordinary childhood could produce such a woman.

Don't expect story with developed characters. It's more like action story or comic with simple character description about reborn ancient king Bloodaxe who wants to claim his old kingdom which fell apart to few small territories. It's a lightweight reading that wouldn't probably satisfy hard readers but I liked it. I'll give a try to one of authors novels.

I found this via the author's posting on Google+. The description pulled me in and I purchased on the spot. I love reading fantasy but I've never encountered anything like this. It's a quick read, under an hour, but is so full of win! Told in first person, this is the story of the second coming of King Bloodaxe. He describes his birth, childhood, and eventual quest to reclaim his kingdom. The humorous, light hearted tone of the story makes for a refreshing take on the traditional fantasy story of war, demons, and kingdom building. I would love for the author to explore this character further in future works. I suck at reviews, but just know that this is good stuff and more than worth the price of admission.

a second star for the book cover.

The story is told in a "comic" tone that really does not do it for me. The whole thing sounds too "nonchalant" - and therefore very pretentious - for my taste, that the end result is, imho, a failed parody of a fantasy story.

I may, however, have missed the point the Author wanted to convey.

What I did not miss, in any case, is the unrelenting use of terminology ( as well as the cynical train of thought )that would never be uttered by a double bladed battle axe wielding warrior.

How on earth would King Bloodaxe know the meaning of the word "propaganda", for instance?

But then again, apart from this latter ( nowadays often observed ) defect, I may really have missed the point, with this book.
