Enjoyed this one uite a bit In hindsight I am gonna deduct a star for some repetitions like the constant reminding that the Silth have a blind hatred of Marika for example Restated again and again Yeah got it Characters telling her every couple pages that they hate and fear her Yeah got it Friends and allies telling her that in case she had forgotten those individuals do indeed possess a blind hatred and fear of her For her natural talent and power Yeah got it Markia saying it herself Yeah got it Always so simply stated Everything Cook writes is simply stated brief It is one of the things that I like about him and his writing here throughout Darkwar But in instances like this this constant reiteration becomes annoying because it is only redundant without adding any depth Still many authors I feel add words in an attempt at adding depth when they really have not said anything of value which is even frustrating to try to read through so in a way my hangup about Darkwar could have been worse in the hands of another author

Darkwar author Glen CoThe world grows colder with each passing year the longer winters and ever deepening snows awaking ancient fears within the Dengan Packstead fears of invasion by armed and desperate nomads attack by the witchlike and mysterious Silth able to kill with their minds alone and of the Grauken that desperate time when intellect gives way to buried cannibalistic instinct when meth feeds upon meth For Marika a young pup of the Packstead loyal to pack and family times are dark indeed for against. Trying to keep this spoiler freeOriginally published as three separate books Darkwar is Glen Cook at his terse yet powerful bestThis is the story of Marika a Meth pup of the Degnan Packstead living in the longhouse of her dam Marika and her littermate Kiblin who she loves despite the fact that he is a naturally weak and cowardly male share a strange and taboo gift Driven by hunger caused by the ever worsening winters nomads begin attacking and overrunning the Packsteads changing Markia’s life foreverFrom which I deduced as this is Cook not much ever explicitly spelled out for the reader – terse remember that we have a dog like species with a female dominated social structure living in an essentially bronze age setting and that the plot is likely to involve the budding power of the young pupRight but never in the way you expect part of what I like about this book is that it repeatedly lures you into thinking you “know” what is coming next and then confounds your expectations totallyIt is in a way Marika’s story and while she is not really a classically “likeable” protagonist she does earn your deep respect through her endurance of suffering steadfast defence of her ideals and a few tender and touching momentsIt is also the narrative of a society undergoing a massive structural change while facing the prospect of total destructionWhat marks this out as exceptional for me is that I can’t seem to let go of it after several days and multiple other books; my mind keeps drifting back to examine moments elements and ideas from this work
