Read full description of the books The Clockwork Vampire Chronicles:As an omnibus collection of three books (Kell's Legend, Soul Stealers, and Vampire Warriors) I was really hoping for more from this series, but only made it to page 50 of the first book before I decided to not read any further.
When I was in the bookstore, it was the awesome cover art that drew my eye, and then the large printed words of Clockwork Vampire caught my attention and I was very interested. Then and there I read the back print and then the author’s introduction. So when it all began comparing this novel's main character to Druss the Legend--well, I had to have it!
Unfortunately, to liken this book's main character to David Gemmell's Druss is like comparing a Porsche to a minivan. Sure, they are alike, but so vastly different as to be complete opposites.
The major problem these books suffer from is the lack of a strong editor. The prose is rife with badly worded sentences, telling, and PoV violations. In the short amount I did read, I could easily find over a hundred such flaws. It was distracting and kept pulling me out of the story because I had to think about what was being said or described. I am college educated and very well-read, but some of the words were so out of place I was forced to look them up to find out what they meant. Perhaps they are common words in the author's UK English, but I had a problem with them as an American English reader.
I am disappointed, mainly because there were some gems in this material, lines that were well done or a cleaver turn of phrase that made me smile, but they are smothered by so many other flaws that I could not continue to read the story.
