    Writer's of Impressive Talent

    Tristan and Keegan Kosinski prove themselves to be writers of impressive talent in this unusual fantasy tale which seamlessly blends the narratives of many well fleshed-out characters. The authors' distinct writing styles come together nicely to give the reader two different ways of looking at the fantasy world within The Darkness That Slept: while one of the styles is humorous and quick-witted, the other is more majestic, ponderous, visually evocative. Hence, the reader is able to fully immerse him or herself within the narrative through the contrasts between the two writing styles, something that I have yet to encounter in other, more mainstream works of fiction. The main downside that drops the rating from 5 to 4 are the unfortunate grammar mistakes which occasionally interrupted the flow of the story and pulled me out of the narrative. I have no doubt however, that subsequent editions of the novel will rectify these small flaws. The verdict? Do not be fooled by the unusual cover page of the book, as underneath it is a fantasy story the likes you have probably never seen before.

    This book has comedy, drama, and blood and guts.

    It's pretty good. The three different storylines are different enough that it suits different preferences for books. Slade is funny with his antics, and Dieharamon is interesting with all the drama and backstabbing and intrigue going on. I like those two the best; The High Warden sequence was a little slow for my liking, though the story itself traveled at a decent pace.

    unpredictable, engaging fantasy

    Unpredictable, engaging fantasy that will appeal to fans of longer, more complicated series, such as those by Martin and Sanderson. I appreciated the attention to detail as well as the depth of characterization, which kept me interested until the end, and with unanswered questions, I am definitely interested in continuing to read the story as it continues.

    Definitely worth reading!

    The story, imagination and pacing of this book was excellent. The authors have taken their time in letting the story unfold and allowing us to become acquainted with and invested in the characters and their world. The antics of Slade (often quite humorous and occasionally over the top) act as nice reprieve from the brutal existence of Dieharmon and the South; we can't help but feel for The North and the High-Warden. Though much is revealed of the characters in the first novel, there is still a lot of mystery surrounding them to be untold in the sequel. For the most part, the prose is very-well written. It does on a rare occasion feel a little forced, maybe a little too much. If you enjoy Tolkien, Sanderson, Lawrence, Salvatore, Berg, you will probably like this book. It was definitely worth the read.
