Tons of action, lots of blood, good set of characters, very little history, and no info dumps! This will, however, be a fun book for a bit of fighting and bloodshed.
The world was rather simple but thorough enough to feel planned. The characters were all interesting, different from one another in subtle ways, and entertaining. I found Thorn and Mara to be fun characters to follow and enjoyed their interactions, as well as all in the group. The fight scenes were done well, in my opinion, and were full of blood and guts. The writing itself was smooth and I slipped into my reading trance right away.
So overall, a great book for those looking for an adventure book. Jul 27, Kristie Kiessling rated it it was ok. The title drew my attention. Maybe it had something to do with the martial arts movie, dunno. Nice cover. Sadly, this story reminded me of one of those quest sessions we used to get into in the old AOL days of roleplay in the Red Dragon Inn. Great hack and slay mission. I liked the characters despite their too-convenient backstories.
I liked the bad guys, though they were predictable too. Reading this story reminded me of the days when I played my way through World of Warcraft. Though the s The title drew my attention. Though the story had potential, I found it bogged down by unnecessary foul language and colloquialisms that drew me out of the setting - a nebulous one at best to begin with - and into the present day.
I half expected someone to hand the hero a Coke at some point.

As another reviewer said, the prologue seemed out of place and turned me off enough that I almost didn't bother. As the story was short and in my kindle database anyway, I finished reading. I am glad that it was free.
I do hope Mr. Benage keeps trying, though. I think he could actually write something exciting if he really put his mind to it. This felt a bit to me as though he had this tale and tidied it up and published it to get out there. I don't blame him for that, I just hoped for more.
Book Review: A Circle of Iron (Eldernost: Book 1)
I may give him another chance. Jul 08, Mia Darien rated it liked it. On my blog, I give this a 3. This story is going to be kind of hard to review. I liked it, but I did have some issues with it. If I had started at the first chapter, it probably would have gotten me better. This was epic fantasy without enough backing up the epic. I did like the charac On my blog, I give this a 3. I did like the characters, and the world.
Read the story to understand. But it felt like not enough was given for what was trying to be accomplished. I would have liked more ominous foreshadowing on Redmourne, and a little more about the characters leading into the dramatic parts towards the end. Things about the history of the wights and of magic were kind of tossed in later and felt more like… last minute plot devices.
I would have liked those foreshadowed more, little bits and pieces dropped in earlier. And yet… I did like it. May 20, C. Faust rated it it was amazing. It was a straightforward, humble setting with the focus being heavily on the action and the characters. I even found myself enjoying the female character — which talk about high standards, I almost never enjoy them!
Benage really hit the nail on the head with this delightful treat and I commend him for it.

My biggest real criticism is that it is way too short. The Nook version was only about pages and I felt like there could have been so much more content and plot wise. I think Benage has real potential if he could just bulk his content a bit more and give it some weight. It is on Smashwords, so I know that all of you darlings could probably get it on your Kindles and iPads too which if you can, I would recommend doing so!
But I think, honestly, that if this was a book I had come across by chance in a bookstore, I would have paid money for it. They might surprise you.

Jun 04, Maya Lantz rated it really liked it. This novella had me hooked from the start. It is a very fast paced story set in the world of Eldernost. Greg Benage does an excellent job of setting up a very unique world without wasting lots of time getting into the story. The details of the world are nicely inserted into the story line giving you just what you need to follow along and enjoy the ride. After reading the description I assumed this would just be lots of killing and plundering, however, there is a very rich story with several unexp This novella had me hooked from the start.
