Bili the Axe again. Can't get enough.
Mohammad Ali Abedi
(There are 18 books, and I read until Book 10, Bili the Axe)

I read a bunch of these books, and eventually I got bored of it, but man, what a ride. The story is set in a post-apocalypse world.

I think this was the one that dealt with the death of Bili The Axe, but I'm going from memory of a series read decades ago. They are all more of a fantasy work than anything else. The stories fall into the ripping tales sort of genre, but I really enjoyed them at the time.

The Horseclans series is probably the best blend of fantasy and SiFi I have ever read. Pretty much something for everyone in these books. Great characters, epic storyline, fantastic writings. My highest recommendation

I'd like to give this 3.5 stars. The original parts are very good but too much is cut and paste from earlier books. This may not have been as much of a problem when you had a couple years between book releases and were reading them as they came out, but it's really irritating when you read them back to back going through the series.

The Bili books were not my favorites.
