Corporal Hopkins just wants to go home. After many years serving with the Laird’s Men, he deserves his freedom. But while the long war that fractured New Britain is over, Raiders in the Scottish forests still pose a deadly threat.

War, death, and a surprisingly monstrous foe await in this gory little tale! Review later, when/if I ever get my damn act together over here!

(4.5/5.0) I recently (finally) got around to reading Tabatha’s first story collection, Dark Winds Over Wellington, this summer, and loved it. If being her friend wasn’t enough reason to follow her work, those stories did the trick. I’m now a fan of both the person and writer that is Tabatha Wood.

Her latest release, All the Laird’s Men, is a novella that mixes military fiction with creature-feature. You can read it in about an hour, so there’s no reason not to see what Tabatha has up her sleeves.

If you like graphic military fiction and a deliciously horrific creature feature with a side of the shades of morality and humanity in conflict then this short, sharp book is for you.

Don’t be fooled by its length - this story packs a lot of punch in its small package. Themes like the horrors of war, environmentalism, lost history, and the meaning of family are all handled thoughtfully. And who can pass up a great Nessie story? Nessie has always been my favourite cryptid, and her origin as set out in this book is as plausible as any explanation I’ve heard. A quick read, but one that will leave you thinking afterwards.

However many pages of soldiers swearing at one another before a monster pops up and kills everyone. Dull. Dire. Gory. Made me wonder how much I'd paid for it (fortunately not much). Would have DNF'd if it wasn't nice and short. Not recommended. ...more

A potent little yarn of monsters and mayhem in a sort of post apocalyptic Scotland. Good, bloody fun for the most part and a good amount of heart at the end.
