The Hellborn King is a great dark tale of blood and war. It may look like a big book but the story itself flies as if flung from the biggest trebuchet ever built. It will pull you into the depths of the world and refuse to let go from the very beginning in a stunning and breathtaking way. I read the prologue twice, it was that good. If you are looking for a dark book with unforgiving characters, then you have found the perfect match.
