Novel Tease

Random meanderings about the books I love—or don't. 

Interspersed with observations about my hobbies: Beer & Wine, Bridge, Bikes and Bow-wows.

The Book Thief
Markus Zusak
Pontypool Changes Everything
Tony Burgess
Oath of Swords  - David Weber

If you enjoyed [author:Michael Moorcock]'s [book:Eternal Champion|30097] series, you'll probably find this a rather blatant ripoff. We have Gods who appear in person, reluctant heroes who act as their champions, bardish sidekicks, and soul-drinking swords. If Weber adds travel across the planes, I'll be really ticked.

Of course, if you didn't enjoy  [book:The Eternal Champion|30097], you'll probably hate this series...

Ultimately, I did enjoy the story, but it's far more derivative than I expect from Weber.
