    Hardcover ð Warriors Epub ✓ warriors free, WarriorsWarriors KindleThe stories I read from this collection are The Triumph , by Robin Hobb Reading this reminded me why I love Robin Hobb What a great story from a great story teller Clean Slate , by Lawrence BlockLawrence Block writes serial killers so well, it makes me seriously wonder about his personal life The Mystery Knight , by George R.R MartinThis is the first thing I ve read by George R.R Martin, and I really enjoyed it I only wish I started with the first short story featuring the characters Dunk and Egg, The Hedge Knight I am definitely going to get the two Legends anthologies to read the first two Dunk and Egg short stories, and I ll probably get the graphic novels they were turned into, also.

    Hardcover ð Warriors Epub ✓ warriors free, WarriorsWarriors KindleI primarily read The Warriors because of the short story The Mystery Knight by George R.R Martin I must say the story did not disappoint It was great to see Dunk and Egg again a little older and competent The story really showed a lot of aspects that make A Song of Ice and Fire so compe

    Hardcover ð Warriors Epub ✓ warriors free, WarriorsWarriors KindleAn anthology of twenty short stories about warriors from every genre paranormal to historical, western to science fiction to In 2011, Warriors won the Locus Award for Best Anthology.Series Custom of the Army Lord John Grey, 2.75 Mystery Knight A Tale of the Seven Kingdoms The Tales of Dunk and Egg, 3 Hedge Knight, 3 The StoriesCecelia Holland s King of Norway is a heroic look at an honorable Viking warrior who holds his king and his leaders to account Tricky little ending Joe Haldeman s Forever Bound is a futuristic look at soldiering in the army Reminds me of John Ringo s enhanced soldiers in his Posleen series In this case, Haldeman s soldiers are a lot tuned in to each other and the trauma hits harder Very well done Another new author for me Robin Hobb s Triumph is truly a different sort of triumph in the proud, very slow death of a Roman Consul seen primarily through t

    Hardcover ð Warriors Epub ✓ warriors free, WarriorsWarriors KindleTo be fair, I only read the short story The Mystery Knight by George R.R Martin That being said, I really had a high bar set for this story because The Hedge Knight is my favorite short story ever, and The Mystery Knight follows up after that story with The Sworn Sword in between In fact, The Hedge Knight got me into reading the Song of Ice Fire series by George R.R Martin to begin with Unfortunately, The Mystery Knight fell flat Maybe I m getting older, but the story was predictable and nowhere as good as anything else George R.R Martin has written Sloppy I would say Maybe George R.R Martin has too many other things going on He s writing th

    Hardcover ð Warriors Epub ✓ warriors free, WarriorsWarriors KindleIn his Introduction, George R R Martin describes Warriors as a spinner rack , which is an apt description for an anthology that includes stories of every ilk from historical fiction, fantasy and sci fi to a Western, mysteries, some mainstream , and a couple of pieces that I won t even begin to try and label Besides diversity, Warriors is also rich in quality with every story in the anthology well written and deserving of inclusion, even if I enjoyed certain pieces than others For me, George R R Martin s The Mystery Knight was easily the highlight of the anthology, but there were several other stories that I loved including contributions by Tad Williams, Robert Silverberg, David Weber, Joe Haldeman, James Rollins, David Ball, and Steven Saylor, while there were only a few pieces that I felt were forgettable Negatively, for all of its variety, the anthology is nevertheless dominated by
