Oct 18th 2010 11:25PM I'm really looking forward to getting my hands on this one. I haven't skipped Stormrage, but on my own reception of Night of the Dragon, I haven't been too bothered about picking it up yet. Arthas on the otherhand, I couldn't put down.
It's funny really... A couple of years ago I held the opinion that Knack was the better author, capable of more epic and large-scale writing and that Golden's books were more filler. Since re-reading those books and based on the last few of her works, especially Arthas, I'm ready to revise that opinion. Knack's OK, but he tends to be a little to verbose. I also don't think he's been doing his best work since the WOTA Trilogy (which WAS epic.). Ms Golden on the other hand I thing is building strength on strength. She's got a fantastic finger on the pulse of the major lore characters and writes much more exciting dialogue.
I actually got into some of Christie Golden's stuff really early in the 90's with some of her early Voyager novels, which I enjoyed for what they were. She's definitely come strides ahead since then too.
Can't wait for this one.
