Mortis – John French
Starting with a disclaimer: I like this book. A lot. I recognize it has several shortcomings, and will try to address them fairly, but I’m going to be writing this review (as is the case for most of my reviews) purely based on my response and not really with any attempt to be objective. Apply this knowledge to my comments.
Mortis. Siege book 5. Why was this series 8 books? We’re over half way through and still nobody knows.
The good news is that this book is great. Or, at least, near everything I was looking for out of it is delivered upon splendidly.
This will not be a book for everyone. It was, however, a book for me.
The prose is a joy. The tone is superb. The action is satisfying and damnit, it’s just the kind of book I want to see more of, despite its flaws.
This is a solid 8.5 out of 10, as much as it’s a hard To Taste. Some people are going to despise this. I personally liked it better than Solar War.
Current Siege Ranking:
Saturnine > Mortis > The Solar War > Fury of Magnus > Sons of the Selenar > The First Wall > Lost and the Damned
