A Netflix Series In a Book

This book was awesome! Due to its episodic telling, i felt like i was hearing a series that i could stop and pick back up on whenever. The story is fantastic and so far one of my favorites now. Characters are unique and memorable, while the narration is clear and distinctly well done. All in all it was a great use of a credit and i look forward for the books to come.

Great Book. Greater TV Show?

Someone already posted this before, but I'd like to reitterate.
The episodic way in which this story was told, each with a minor plotline derived from rising action, climax, and falling action, all leading to a final culmination of epic proportions really lends itself to being perfectly suited for a Netflix tv series.
It is a great book that came out of left field. Cooper is a true wordsmith that draws you in to his fantastical realm and makes you really feel the character's exhaustion for combat.
It reminded me a little of the Night Angel Trilogy, save for the character being older and wiser, where he seeks redemption for a terrible past. Stories like this always draw me in. Cannot wait for book2!

Fun with Samurai John Wick doing Side Quests

I had so much fun with this Audible. I loved listening to the adventure of tired assassin Danzen helping out the villagers while bracing for his shady past to finally catch up with him. I cant wait for the next book. The Narrator was awesome I hope he does the entire series.

kinda dumb

our hero has an affliction that makes his flying super sharp sword the most incompatible weapon. along with other not making sense parts i don't expect a fantasy book to be realistic by any means. I just like the plot and details to sorta fit if you squint your eyes a bit sorta. returned for credit!

ANOTHER H. COOPER BANGER!

I don't know how Harmon does it, but he never leaves me unsatisfied after I read/listen to one of his books.

Great book - a little different & very refreshing

The story took a little to get into but it is nicely packaged into small parts with four chapters each. The world that our hero is in presents a few (to me) new ideas and lots of new terms are introduced. It´s very well presented so it wasn't at all hard to get into.

I really like the story arch, all the different things that happens and all the weird figures that Pilgrim meets. There are a bunch of fighting scenes which are expertly told, and to stories feel like quests in a game... "Go to the hermit in the dangerous woods to get the antidote to the poison" etc.

I highly recommend this book, and it appears to be in such a way that the book can be read alone even though it is in a series.
