Ahriman: Exile by John French – Book Review [Bellarius]

Ahriman's never looked better. I don't know who did this cover-art but my hat goes off to them.

After much delay, Bellarius gives his thoughts on John French’s tale of the infamous sorcerer in Ahriman: Exile.

“A decent showing of Ahriman taking his first steps on the path of damnation, but not one without a few pitfalls.” – Bellarius, The Founding Fields

Allowed to view the opening pages of the upcoming limited edition novella by John French, Bane of Kings and Bellarius give their thoughts on the opening.

An excellent (if very small) extract promising greater things to come. If you can afford the pricetag of this limited edition novella, then Tallarn: Executioner, from this extract at least – is a very interesting read from the awesome John French. ” ~Bane of Kings, The Founding Fields

“An interesting beginning to the conflict which adiquately outlines the basics before the battle.” – Bellarius, The Founding Fields
