    1. Trigger warnings: violence. Lots of violence. Graphic descriptions of battles and injuries. A backstory in which a female character basically seduces a man so that she can rob him once he's naked and he kills her. IDEK what to call that, but it happens. So if you guys have been around here for any length of time, you'll know that Blue Moon Rising, the first book in this series, is one of my ALL TIME FAVOURITE fantasy books. You'll also know that I love Blood and Honour, the second book in this s [...]


    2. A horror novel in a fantasy setting, this. The plot is as threadbare as they come and I never cared much for any of the characters. Yet, despite its shortcomings, this novel still managed to draw me in. It is a reasonably engaging read, if you're into this kind of thing. The premise is simple: a patrol arrives at a remote border fort to investigate its lack of response to any communication, what they find there is frankly Lovecraftian.If you've read Phantoms by Dean Koontz, you'll also be noting [...]


    3. Третя книга з серії зовсім інша. Ні тобі інтриг, ні престолів, ні хитрощів.Такий собі хорор і трешняк.З цієї книги вийшов би першокласний фільм жахів, який би я не змогла дивитись. Плюс автору за реалістичність, за схему "герой+антигерой" б'ються проти ще більшого зла. Також за [...]


    4. Duncan MacNeil and his comrades are the vanguard of the local army. Which means they get the dirty jobs no one else wants. And so they find themselves investigating a border fort that’s apparently been abandoned, leaving a void in the structure of local power. But when they arrive, just before the onset of a severe storm, they will quickly realize that the elements outside the fort may not be as bad as the ones inside….Like the previous two novels, Down Among the Dead Men is a one-off, actio [...]


    5. So I'm just skipping along, and then to my everlasting amusement there was a bloody gruesome action scene. Here's an example of how surpised I was when I clearly saw it comingGIFSoupI will warn you now don't read this if you don't want a few spoilers.Even though this book takes place in the Forest Kingdom. It doesn't have any characters that are in the first books, but a younger generation associated or apprenticed to characters in previous books.Cool factor. Yes, I miss the older characters, bu [...]


    6. A decade ago, the Darkwood rose up and threatened to swallow the Forest Kingdom. It was driven back, but with great loss. Now a fort built on the border of the kingdom has gone silent and a small group of Rangers are sent to investigate, finding an evil more ancient than the demons of the Darkwood.I didn't really notice the author of this book when I bought it, just caring that it sounded vaguely interested and was the right size to fit into my pocket, but Simon R. Green is known as a horror wri [...]


    7. 3.4 stars.What can I say? A short book compared to other books of the series, Down Among the Dead Men is like other works of Green. Gory, but with less action than usual. Most of the book you are in suspense, and you don't know when something is going to happen. That, of course, changes toward the end. The characters were forgettable in my opinion. None of them were really likable too. But that doesn't matter in a standalone short (relative to the rest of this series) story. Then again, it was a [...]


    8. I have to say I wasn't as in love with this book as I was with the other Forest/Northern Kingdoms books. I think a large part of that is this is definitely more of a horror story and not a fantasy adventure. I enjoyed the different characters and how they were all developed through their fears and pasts but it didn't have quite the same magic as Blue Moon Rising and Blood and Honor. Overall, I did have a good time reading this especially because we get to see the Forest Kingdom ten years on from [...]


    9. Essentially a horror novel within a fantasy setting, this is set in the same world as Simon Green's earlier novels "Blue Moon Rising" and "Blood and Honour"; albeit about 10 years on from "Blue Moon Rising", with the odd reference to the events of that (better) book.It's also pretty much rote stuff: there's nothing really outstanding about this book that would make it stand out from the crowd.


    10. The story took place over the span of about 2 days. It's just about searching through an abandoned fort and killing something dangerous. I am not sure why, but I was not as drawn in by this book as the others. It felt more appropriate as a novella rather than an actual book. I would say skip it unless you are a diehard Simon R. Green fan.


    11. Another great book by Simon R. Green. The author masterfully blends fantasy and horror into one excellent, exciting and occasionally bone-chilling novel. I think that he could have used a darker ending, it would have made the book perfect. As it is, it's still, as they say about the "Deathstalker" series by the same author, "bloody funny and extremely bloody". Heartily recommended.


    12. The book is good. I am very upset when I bought it though. I paid the price for a full book and its only 164 pages. Its really just a short story. The story is excellent as is all of Simon Green's books.


    13. I really enjoyed this one, especially when I realized the link between it and the Rupert/Julia books. It's nothing very deep, but it's an enjoyable read with characters that are pretty well fleshed out. I like the grittiness of Green's writing.


    14. This was the first Simon R Green book I read, after that I picked up Deathstalker and have loved everything he has written since.


    15. kinda one-dimensional and very linear. It really feels like a mini-novella more than anything. Found myself tuning in and out as the simple 'dungeon raid' story progressed


    16. Just not memorable. Nice little references to the Forest Kingdom from Blue Moon Rising, but really, there's a reason this is out of print.





    17. Spooky! Similar to the Ghost Finders series, more than Hawk & Fisher, although set in that universe. But quite good, and not too long.
