  • 5 StarsThe Heretic Land by Tim Lebbon is not his strongest piece of fiction that he has penned, it is however exactly the type of fiction that satiates me through and through Over the last year Tim Lebbon has won me over and as of now may be my favorite author His novels are dark and dirty fantasy that blend in a bit of science fiction and a whole lot of religion and horror The Heretic Land is no exception The plot centers on the resurrection of a dead god As a result, religion, belief, and disb [...]


  • Was given this book as a present so felt obliged to finish it but it was a real slog There were some good ideas here but there was so much that wasn t righte interactions between characters didn t feel believable, none of the characters were particularly likeable or distinguishable, there were elements introduced and never heard of again and plot holes and inconsistencies in how the societies worked Overall it had a feel of an early draftwhere an editor should have been going back to the author [...]


  • I very much liked this book, not really liked but not just liked If I could have given an extra half a star then I would have.The initial story idea is great and is reminiscent of many fantasy books, especially what I have read of David Gemmell I really enjoyed the world that was created and the characters within it.Initially it was a little slow to fall into, with the narrative jumping from one point of view to another, but soon grew to like this affect and saw how it pushed the story in an eff [...]


  • c2012 prison, colony, island, Skythe, heresy Having read Echo City, I was expecting something out of the ordinary I wasn t disappointed there are some events and personages that are really out there As Interzone described it full of creepy invention I sped through the first half To use the good old standby a page turner indeed Bu, once again, as with quite a few books that I have read this year it started to get all murky and complicated and then I found out that the time lines were not as I tho [...]


  • I can t decide if this is worth 1 or 2 stars, but I went for 1 in the end because it was simply a struggle to finish I could have very easily put it down at the halfway point, but I persevered in the hopes it got better It didn t.I enjoyed Echo City by Tim Lebbon, so I had high hopes for this Unfortunately it felt like there was too much telling that couldn t camouflage itself in an interesting setting The worst thing about it was that it felt like Lebbon was trying his very best to write a Miev [...]


  • This book was nothing like I thought it would be When I read the blurb it sounded like it was going to be a story which combined the shows Lost and Prison Break However, when I started reading it, it turned out to be a much religious story line which dealt with belief and faith and how two religions with different beliefs turn to war to prove that their faith is the only correct one I liked the fantasy world Lebbon created with a definite steam punk style to it I wish Lebbon had re thought the [...]


  • Ambitious, epic and well written Tim Lebbon was a complete unknown to me, and had I not been at a loss for something to do for a few hours, it s likely I would never have browsed my way to this book I m glad I did Although the authors message is slightly too obvious in places, The Heretic Land is still a great story, and very nearly 4 star quality The plot is well paced and executed, although I felt there were some loose ends left dangling The themes of religious extremism, cultural decay, the n [...]


  • Afraid I didn t actually finish this Not because it was bad, by any means It s just not clicking for me at the moment It s a fantastic exercise in world building, and I loved a lot of the elements Lebbon s incorporated into his world But I m just too distracted at the moment to dive into an entirely new world, I think It s dark, which is my preferred ambience It has everything from a devastated prison island surrounded by lethal seas There s religious and political persecution There s magic in t [...]


  • Great world building and genuinely interesting characters, let down by a story which although reaching a logical conclusion ends up feeling as if it just sort of peters out I really wanted to give it four stars but one is left feeling as if should, somehow, have been said at the end not in the loose end tying sense, but just in the sense of honouring the characters otherwise very evident roundedness Feels like some corners were cut, although I can t quite put my finger on why it s so unsatisfyi [...]


  • It was an ok book but had nothing to do with the island full of prisoners the blurb talked about I was expecting a helter skelter fight for survival hunted by blood crazed cannibalistic Lord of the Flies grownups Instead I got a meandering story with poorly developed conflicting races which ended in opposition to the start Some good ideas there which could have been better fleshed out over a trilogy rather than randomly introducing monsters of convenience throughout the story To be fair to the a [...]


  • Some books are good, some just have good ideas This book is both The ideas here are big, and they are explored in a big way that is only possible in a stand alone novel You couldn t top the climax of this novel easily, and hell, it s just refreshing to read something where I don t have to wait for book three or book seven to come out months after I ve forgotten the plot of the preceding volumes Some great stuff here and a satisfying solution ending.


  • I would say I enjoyed this book I liked the way the book unravelled a mystery and conspiracy slowly as the pages went bye I also think that the way the book switched between two characters really unravelled the mystery This is one of those books that just have a big moment when everything falls into place I would not reccomend this book for people who are put off by violence for this book is extremely violent.


  • Arrested and sentenced to exile on the prison island of Skythe, Bon Ugane joins forces with Leki Borle in order to survive.Bits of this book are very good but many parts are just not good at all short pieces of action and engagement with characters interspersed with long, meandering descriptions that draw focus away from the book Wouldn t be picking this up again.


  • I m not really sure what I was expecting when I picked this book up but overall i was largely disappointed Was far from a bad book and I m sure readers used to reading fantasy will appreciate it than I did Biggest gripe with it is part 1, it felt like a pointless prequel to the comparatively excellent second part.


  • Can t say I really liked this book It s not that it is not well written or that the story is not very complexe and thought troughIt s just somehow to hard to imagine in a lot of moments also I think that the comment preview on the back of the book is badly done because you anticipate a total different kind of story than you get Did not klick for me, sorry.




  • Got bored with it, sorry I wanted to like it, but lost it about halfway thrugh, I guess with unsympathetic characters and a very bleak landscape, despite the curiousity of what was going on.
