This fourth installment continues Robert Adams' dense narrative. The antagonists are portrayed as "Christians turned crazed homosexuals bent on human sacrifice." Bili and Milo continue the quenching of the rebellion (which is still left mid-battle no less).

Disappointingly, the main characters consume the spotlight but do not perform much with their powers other than mindspeak (telepathy). A Cat of Silvery Hue really is about the average Geros, who rises to the occasion to perfor

(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. Everything has gone wrong, from nuclear warfare to plagues, so nothing remains from our time. This new world is run by barbarians and swords. In the new world, there are a few changes.

More political and bloodletting fun! This one takes over directly from the events in book three of the series. Bili the Axe comes into play here and Lord Milo (yes the barbarian has a title) has to make some hard choices and decisions that ring on throughout many books in the future. A thoroughly fun read, as all the Horseclans books are.

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 read this book years ago for the first time, when it was first published. I enjoyed it then and enjoyed it again when I again read it not long ago...A very fun series, with great stories and excellent characters.
