Because Iron Wolves was one of my favorite reads of 2013, I jumped at the opportunity to get my greedy eyes on the next installment in the Rage of Kings series.

True to the cardinal rule of cliffhangers, White Towers picks-up where Iron Wolves left off and doesn’t let-up for 464-pages. Returning for readers’ pleasure are such iron wolves nemesis as the Red Thumb Gang, King Yoon, a stray iron wolf and also the elf rats. While new to readers, the elf rats are the stuff of Vagandrak’s nightmares and they are back with a vengeance.

Similar to the likes of Joe Abercrombie and Mark Lawrence, Andy Remic constructs a gritty and engaging series populated with compelling anti-heroes readers cheer for to win, but whom we do not pity when they lose. Remic is particularly effective in contextualizing our (anti) heroes, through the use of flashbacks and a growing self-awareness of among our morally-challenged champions.

Remic’s ability to spin a yarn sucked me right back into the world of the Iron Wolves and kept me reading much, much too late at night. I neglected my work, my studies, my dog, my children and even my marital duties to get to the next page… and I don’t regret a minute of it.

White Towers is a solid, satisfying read.
