They came from the north and the city fell. The land of Falanor has been invaded by an albino army, the Army of Iron. A small band of heroes led by Kell, a magnificent and brutal hero, breaks out to warn the king. Fighting their way south, betrayal follows battle, battle follows deviation, and they are attacked on all quarters by deadly warriors, monstrous Harvesters who drain blood from their victims to feed their masters. And worse is to come, for Kell is anything but a hero.
Andy Remic is a British writer with a love of ancient warfare, mountain climbing and sword fighting. Once a member of the Army of Iron, he has since retired from a savage world of blood-oil magick and gnashing vachines, and works as an underworld smuggler of rare dog-gems in the seedy districts of Falanor. In his spare time, he writes out his fantastical adventures.

Not on the epic scale of ASOIAF but a quite fun listen. Recommended if you enjoy grim dark type fantasy.
A fast plot, perhaps a little too many last minute lucky escapes, but hey its got steam-punk mechanical vampires and Conan type barbarians facing off, so what is not to like.
Good narrator, nicely paced with a pretty good range of accents/voices. Not really old enough for the voice of the old warhorse main character but I will let that pass.
Not really a big movie fan, so I would rather they made it into a GOT type TV series. Not sure why I should provide free copy, creative types get paid for that.
If you are a sensitive soul, this book is probably not for you as there is plenty of body parts flying around, bonking and swearing (all the good stuff).
