The Review:

From the first page to the last, When Blood Falls is a fast paced read that leaves a distinct memory of one character Tyr Og in your mind long after you finish it. Robertson plays with your emotions in the best way possible as you go from feeling bad for this character to loathing him for his angry deeds to actually wishing for a turn of events and cheering for him in the end. I have never met another character quite like Tyr Og. His capacity for anger and the way he deals with it is haunting.

The story moves fast and is indeed very short, yet you are 100% satisfied at the end of it. Just the right amount of detail left my imagination flowing throughout this book, only slightly less gruesome than Robertson’s longer works. I do look forward to treading through the entire Thrice Nine Legends series one ghastly step at a time.
