Bad to the Skorne *Guitar riff*

April 11, 2013


Larry Correia doesn’t waste a single page. The action starts from the first page and doesn’t stop until you put the book down and take a much needed breath.

Instruments of War is a novella set in the Hordes/WarMachine universe. Like the universe’s, and title suggest this novella is about war. A civil war to be exact. The Skorne live by a simple creed life can only be truly lived in battle. To engage in one on one, or many on one combat is to know the true meaning of life. Pain purifies the weak flesh, just as fire tempers steel. What happens when an heir becomes weak and resorts to assassination instead of direct combat? Those with honor scream for justice, two great armies once marching under the same banner clash!

As I said the action doesn’t stop from the moment you pick up the book. Yet we are still given a glimpse of this world through the eyes of Makeda the heroine. In the few respites we are afforded we enter her mind. See the conflict of Skorne life; the honorable thing is to topple the weak. In doing so will she weaken the family army she has served her entire life? If only she could commune with the exalted dead. Her grandfather would know what to do.

If you are a fan of Hordes/WarMachine you will love this fast paced action Novella. If like me you have never heard of Hordes/WarMachine you will be sucked into the universe. Perhaps the Skorne can purify you through pain as they do their own warriors…
