No. 13 -- The Sign of the Moonbow

by Andrew J. Offutt

Started: April 22
Finished: May 2

Notes: This novel uses characters from the works of Robert E. Howard, especially Cormac Mac Art and Thulsa Doom. I'm a fan of Offutt's, and Howard's, so this short little novel is a natural.

Mini review: About the only thing bad I can say about this book is that it jars you with too many characters right at the beginning, and it thrusts you right into a situation. So, it takes a few chapters to kind of figure out what is going on. Other than that, there's plenty of great action here for you sword & sorcery fans. And for you history buffs, you can learn a lot in this book about ancient Ireland.
