Book 45: Heroes Die
I fish for new books quite a bit at Goodreads, jumping from review to review of people who seem to have a similar taste. I stumbled across Heroes Die from one reviewers list of "Epic Bad-Ass" which seemed right in my tastes given my man crush on Logen Ninefingers. Unfortunately, Caine really isn't quite bad ass enough to carry the book. He's certainly got some bad ass elements, but he's a bit whiny, seriously pussy whipped, and not that clever. He actually doesn't do a whole lot. There's a lot of good fighting with excellent detailing, but despite his professed love of combat, he's really more sad about it, which is kinda sad. The book itself creates an interesting world with some clever premises, but the book was about 100 pages too long with some seriously boring parts.
