Recommends it for: anyone who likes action and war violence
this book so far has a lot of action and gore. ever since its been past the part of his childhood its been almost constant violence or stories of battles. this is a good book if the reader likes faster pace battle violence and action. the only thing i dont care for is that the author likes to repeat some points a couple times... it gets annoying, and some parts that seem good are only touched on then goes right into a random act.
