The Armored Saint by Myke Cole
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
Myke Cole is best known for his military sci-fi, so his foray into fantasy was kind of a given. And I haven’t read his military sci-fi stuff yet, but the sort of matter-of-fact way military sci-fi tends to operate gets carried over to the fantasy realm with this one and… yeah, it was a bit of a miss.
This is more my problem than the book’s problem – the worldbuilding is minimal, the characters are just kind of there doing whatever is required of what’s happening, and the book just completely failed to engage me. I fully respect that I might not be the target audience here, but I had expectations that ultimately weren’t met here. I can say for sure that if you’re looking for high fantasy, this won’t be it.
