The writing here is quite similar to Michael A. Stackpole's other books (cf. the review of Talion: Revenant) - but he doesn't use a parallel timeline here. The character is interesting, but somehow lacks that je-ne-sais-quoi that makes hims sparkle. The story is about Locke, a young swrodsman who sets out to emulate the feats of his father, who was one of the greatest heroes of the Empire, and who used to venture into the realms of Chaos. Along the way, he finds that his father's shadow is indeed long, and his legacy a difficult one to live up to. A good book, and has a pretty decent ending. I think it should be read... a good timepass.
