As someone who likes to and wants to review every historical fiction book I read it is no great pleasure of mine to review books that I have less than positive opinions on In a perfect world I would love or like every book I read Every review would be glowing Faults would be minor and opinions on them would not be offensive to the author or his or her fans Smiles all round Peace love and good books forever It would make reviewing so much easier and I could move on guilt free to the next book The next happy positive reviewOnly this isn t a perfect world Books are not all euals Authors are not all euals And as much as I want to love or like every book I read it simply is not going to happenWhich brings me to my review of Hawk uest by Robert Lyndon A book I had such high hopes for Set in a favourite era and based on a journey Journey being one of my favourite devices in historical fictionIt should have been a perfect match and by jove for approximately 80 pages it nearly was It had one of the greatest introductions that I have read for years It was intoxicatingThe author s grasp of descriptive device was exemplary Appealing to my every nuanced tasteA few small examples He d covered less than half the distance when the clouds snuffed out the sun The temperature plummeted A wind that started as a faraway sigh struck him with a blast of hailand The suadron descended on them like a machine welded by flames the torches roaring in the wind of their passing I admire great writing great description and great imagination If an author can combine this triumverate of greatness in the ways uoted above through an entire book then I am putty in their handsBut then what happened The book I was reading in those early pages transformed into something that was very nearly the antithesis of everything I loved about the beginningMagical passages of description and beautifully devised scenes were replaced by rushing clunky sentences Simplistic in nature and lacking in skill The writing became a shadow of its former self Dialogue became naive and unchallenging It was choking on too many pointless plotlines Bad passes of dialogue Historical inaccuracies Needlessness Something went awry with this novel and it was a bloody crime to meThe writer became his own obstruction and as a result inconsistencies in writing ualities reigned supreme and I had to force myself not to abandon itThis author has the ability to be uite brilliant The talent is there I have no doubt of that Had the book been shorter refined it would have given it a better chance and if only some of the scenes and storylines had been ruthlessly removed this could have made it a magnificent specimen of the genre It could have been the epic a shorter one that the author had wanted it to be If onlyif onlyI will not give up on him yet though I have bought the next book Imperial Fire Those glimpses of brilliance are enough of an incentive for me to believe this author will come into his own one dayWith experience and bucketloads of feedback from readers this author will be a shining star in the genre of historical fiction And I want to be there when that happens To applaud it
