Kratos, the Ghost of Sparta is a pretty traditional barbarian fused with the “doomed warrior-philosopher” archetype Michael Moorcock popularized with Elric- he’s even got a tragic history and vampiric blades which kill with a will of their own and give the lifeblood they take to their wielder.

Vardeman series God of War 1. Kratos is one of the most violent and action worthy video game protagonists and in this book he could not keep my interest. Try it yourself if you loved the game or think a literary version of said game would be interesting.

Does it work as a book? Imagine him doing that for pages worth of words, detailing every encounter, every battle, every swing of his enchanted blades and then you’ll know the sheer level of determination and grit it took me to get through this book, because I just had to know how it ended.

I gave up after about 50 pages. Things are good for him until he finds out the truth, the truth about his past. A Game of Thrones. But what chance does a mere mortal have against a god?

Vardeman is a veteran science fiction, fantasy, and media tie-in writer. Before the Storm World of Warcraft. But there is no characterisation here, so if you don’t already know them from playing the game you won’t give a damn about anything they say or do here. He must destroy Ares, the god of war.

Unless you are dying to read a book based on the God of War series I recommend staying far away from this one. May 13, NickM rated it liked it.

Olympus and has started to stir things up and cause trouble for his sister Athena and his father Zeus. I can summarize the book in a single paragraph, and you should never be able to do that with a good book. Kratos, God of War, is always the same, and as the book seems, will never change. Nice book kratos at the ending coming the new god of war was awesome going through challenges to break his nightmares was pure awesomeness.

It just feels rather silly. Matthew Woodring StoverRobert E.

A brutal warrior, Kratos is a slave to the gods of Olympus. If you like Greek mythology stories, with some twists, not matter if you played or not the video games, this book is a good option.

I was reading what I had already played years ago.

Kratos is sort of a depressing fellow. About Matthew Woodring Stover.
