The Steel Remains de Richard K. Morgan (Author) (2008)

    Chronicles of the Black Company de Glen Cook (dClauzel)
    dClauzel: De la fantaisie noire, avec des sorciers à la volonté impérialiste, des guerres menées par des mercenaires, des révoltes opprimées dans le sang, et un sentiment éternel que de toute façon au final rien ne pourra changer pour le mieux, donc autant essayer quand même.… (més)

    The First Law Trilogy de Joe Abercrombie (imyril)
    imyril: Two very different authors tackle fantasy stereotypes and subvert them with glee. Abercrombie focuses on antiheroes - the coward, the torturer, the berserker - whereas Morgan takes more traditional heroes and then soaks them in noir. The results are delightfully wicked, blood-soaked and utterly readable.… (més)

“Cover quotes from Joe Abercrombie and Steven Erikson hinted that we were going to be in down-in-the-dirt fantasy territory.”

The first of a trilogy, but weirdly, the weakest of the three, I thought. Previously, I'd read Morgan's "Takeshi Kovacs" books, which were pulpy-noir-SF featuring a world-weary protagonist who likes taking stimulants and is just so damn gritty that he's an unbeatable fighter ... and lo! the central character here is a world-weary master swordsman who likes taking stimulants and is just so damn gritty that he's an unbeatable fighter.

That said, it was a fun read, and the second and third books in the trilogy added some depth and complexity and got a lot better, as a result. The sex scenes are all a little wham-bam, but maybe that's how they do things, there. ( )

I am not sure where to start about this book. The story synopsis sounded interesting, which lead me to start reading this one. At the time, I did not know there was a second book, though this is a good stand-alone novel.

The writing style Morgan uses was very interesting for me to read. I found the descriptive battles a bit energizing to me as the reader. The characters introduced had depth, though the secondaries were not as intense as the main. Some of the content Morgan used was a bit offensive to me, but was definitely required to understand the portrayal he wished to show. Morgan's writing style is descriptive though dark and gritty, with a 'no-holds-barred' approach.

This story was definitely not what I thought I was getting, as it had so much more to offer. I have definitely become a fan of this author, and look forward to not only the next novel based on this main character, but his other works as well. His fantasy story-telling skills are superb! ( )

I enjoyed the book but there was a lot to criticise: You have a fairly standard format; the 3 heroes being separate at the beginning of the story with alternating chapters dedicated to following each one. But it takes forever for them to inevitably meet up which becomes frustrating after a while. Then there is the inclusion of the bizarre sex scene/dream sequence where Ringil starts of fighting and ends up sleeping with the Dwenda who are supposed to be the terrifying awesome boogeymen! After building them up throughout the story to be so enigmatic and almost immortal and deadly is seems crazy just to take all that away by having a character have sex with one! I could have done without that whole sequence.

Having said that the character of Ringil is very strong and carries a lot of the book along with Arteth whom I really enjoyed as well and hopefully will b developed much more in future. The fight scenes are very good but suffer in comparison to Joe Abercrombie (but then doesn't everything?), the plot is not unnecessarily complicated and being quite short for a fantasy novel moves at a nice swift pace.

There is A LOT of history and references to previous events/character though and to begin with I felt quite lost but more of this may come to light in the next instalment and I still think I prefer that a 1000 page novel which includes the history of everything and everyone. Plus it actually has a proper ending another rarity in a fantasy trilogy.

The lower end of 4 stars but will definately read the next one.. ( )

What a fun book!

Good action, interesting characters and a world worth exploring.

After reading The Steel Remains I'm definitely looking forward to book #2 to arrive in my mailbox.

The hints of magic, the inclusion of a powerful yet defeatable race and a good selection of blood and guts helps make this a hell of a fun ride.

The main character "Gil" is a bit aggravating at times, and certain aspects seem to be emphasized for reasons other than for actual plot/character development, but still. ( )
