    Having enjoyed his recent book, The Ten Thousand, I had notice that Monarchies of the God is going to be rereleased in omnibus form. Any comments on what they are like?

    Paul Kearney THE TEN THOUSAND 4.5 stars

    The Ten Thousand The Ten Thousand is the first Paul Kearney book that I have read, and it is as different a fantasy as I have ever read, and in fact, it is barely a fantasy. The only fantastic elements are that it is set on a different world — Kuf — with two moons, that the...

    The Ten Thousand by Paul Kearney

    Kuf is a world with a civilisation in the early iron age, mostly united in a great Empire with the exception of the remote land of the Macht, a people of legendary military prowess who live in independent city-states reminiscent of ancient Greece, and who fight using weapons and tactics similar...

    The Ten Thousand by Paul Kearney

    A few months back I noted The Ten Thousand as being one of my hot tips for 2008. Reading a lengthy preview that the author sent me a while back reinforced this feeling, and now reading the complete novel has confirmed my initial guess. Probably the most underread author in epic fantasy has...

    just finished Monarchies of God by Paul Kearney

    what a great great series.... unflinchingly brutal... surprisingly the series is pretty short 5 books 300 pages each. No one, i repeat, no one has written battles like Paul Kearney... the guy is insane i swear i felt like i was part of the regiment and his war tactics are so detailed... the guy...

    Riding the Unicorn by Paul Kearney

    Yeah, and the title isn't the greatest. The cashier giggled when I bought it. There isn't even a fricking unicorn in the book!

    Paul Kearney series dropped by publisher

    Oddly appropriate, given the topic "Is Fat Fantasy Killing the Genre" elsewhere, this piece of sad news has come to light. Paul Kearney, the excellent Irish fantasy author of three standalone novels (The Way to Babylon, A Different Kingdom and Riding the Unicorn) and a completed five-volume...

    Riding the Unicorn - Paul Kearney

    This is a stand alone book and though the title may give the impression of a soft edged story, don't be fooled, this is far from a soft story. There are two worlds in this story, one based on our own and the other very different, which the author manages to integrate very well throughout the...
