Del Rey, 2014.

The “Land Fit for Heroes” trilogy comes to a thrilling conclusion with The Dark Defiles. The anti-heroes of the dark fantasy series face their destinies, their pasts and the machinations of Gods, Demons and aliens.

Suffice to say that Morgan effectively ties all the loose ends together with pretty much non-stop action a change from the previous, slower-paced books. There’s still plenty of sex, drugs, blood and F-bombs though.

You can read my full review of The Dark Defiles at The Nameless Zine, published by the Western Science Fiction Association.

You can also read my reviews of the previous novels, The Steel Remains and The Cold Commands here at The Relentless Reader.
