This morning, Derek Prior of Indie Fantasy Review was kind enough to share his thoughts on Vengar the Barbarian, and if you read the headline, you’ve probably figured out this went pretty well for me.
Vengar has a nice pace, always moving forward and with a good balance of bawdy humour and parodic action. Randolph has a strong voice as a story-teller and a good eye for comedy. There’s a great scene early on when Vengar demonstrates his own rather dramatic style of story-telling. We are treated to nuances of tone, mimicry and declamation that show Vengar may have missed his vocation. For a moment he was transformed (for me) into the Mighty Thor recounting his Asgardian exploits (both in the Eddas and the excellent Marvel animated Avengers films).
If you’d like to read the whole review (and you should, gosh darn it), you can find it by clicking here.
And that’s all for today, boys and girls. Be sure to tune in tomorrow for the long-awaited release of Stars Rain Down!
