Hammer of God by Robert E. Hirsch


Hammer of God is the second book in The Dark Ages Saga of Tristan de Saint-Germain series. And although there is a favorable review of the first book, Promise of the Black Monks, from another reviewer, I'm afraid that I wasn't a very big fan.

For me, while I generally enjoy historical fiction, this particular point and place in history is not overly interesting.  However, that wouldn't have stopped me from enjoying the book had the writing and characters been more interesting.

The plot was not bad, but I did not enjoy the way it was executed.  The entire book, and the book before it, were really expositional and all tell instead of show.

The characters were also too simplistic to be either realistic or interesting.

So, while this is a book that I may have picked up on my own, I have been very disappointed and don't plan on continuing the series.
