Steel remains…

I finished reading Richard Morgan’s The Steel Remains last night.  It’s the first novel of a new fantasy trilogy, but can be read as a stand-alone.  It’s fast-paced, has visceral action, and is gripping reading.  I’m not entirely sure the graphic homosexual sex scenes are necessary to the book, though they certainly ground it in places (and add something for anyone who ever wanted to get it on with Elric).  I’d love to be able to dive into the second book in the series, but I’m guessing it’s not even written. Heck, this first one isn’t due in-store till August.  I definitely give it the big tick, if you’re not easily offended, and expect to see it hitting awards lists next year.
