Robert Asprin's Wartorn:Resurrection
- Hey everyone. I had mentioned this book in an earlier post and
thought I would kinda give you the low down on it. Start a fire
under ya to make you go out and buy it. It's fantastic.
The story revolves around conflict on an isthmus. The northern and
southern continents have fallen from greatness and the isthmus holds
the most sofisticated societies. One of the northern cities, which
has truly embraced magic has decided to take the isthmus for itself.
They have use of magic that no others have, the ability to speak
instantly over vast distences and the ability to move it's army over
vast distances instantly. The only problem is that they really know
nothing of war. This is when they resurrect the great Dardas, the
conquerer of the northern contintent when it was powerful some 250
years ago. They place his spirit into a willing body of a nobleman
so he can lead their war. Only problem is, Dardas knows full well
that once he wins their war, he will no longer be needed and they
will get rid of him and he's not going to let that happen.
The story really revolves around 6 different characters. Each
chapter is about what the character is doing. So the book starts
with Bryck's chapter, cycles through the other characters and then
returns with Bryck's chapter two(which is actually chapter 7). It
just so well written and fun to read. The stories are great as are
the characters. I really couldn't put it down once I started reading
it. It only out in PB and is 295 pages. I had it read in under a
day in a half. I really couldn't recommend it more.
