    One Reply to “Guard Against Dishonor”

    1. This was a nice bit of a story, Short and nearly perfect. Lots of violence and dead bodies.Great one liners.

    2. Пак политика, но този път в точно достатъчно количество :) Нямаше много мистерия, но пък екшън колкото искаш :)

    3. Pretty much the very definition of pulp fiction, this is the kind of story that you tend to forget as soon as you've read it! While also never confirmed within this (or, to the best of my knowledge, in any of the Hawk and Fisher books prior to 'Beyond the Blue Moon'), there are also some very broad hints dropped that these two characters are the same protaganists as in Simon Green's 'Blue Moon Rising' novel. Essentially, these novels are crime novels with a magical twist - personally, I find don [...]

    4. The fifth book in the "Hawk & Fisher" series presents a classic "cop plot" to the readers. Hawk and Fisher capture a ruthless drug lord with powerful friends and all Hell break loose. Soon the cops are considered villains, the drug lord is free and an even more sinister plot threatens to destroy the city of Haven. "Guard against dishonor" is by far the grittiest book in the series and the problems, described in it are very relevant to our own world. Still, the book is very readable and with [...]

    5. I really hate plots where the hero gets framed for something horrible and all of their friends and colleagues immediately turn against them. I find it upsetting and I just don't enjoy it. I did like the bits where Hawk was confronted with his record; namely his habit of leaving a larger trail of bodies behind him than most video game protagonists. When Lara Croft thinks you're a bit extreme, you may in fact have a problem and should definitely look into meditation or green tea or something.Solid [...]

    6. Generally ok if you are not expecting much. The main problem about the book is that it seems pretty naïve in the way the case is solved. (view spoiler)[The Burns and Nightingle guys simply own up pretty easily and conveniently at the end of the book. This seems to be a trait for the past few books in the series. (hide spoiler)] Hope it gets better from the next book

    7. My favorite Hawk and Fisher book yet! I blew through the whole thing in one sitting because I was just so interested in seeing what happened next. I did kind of see the spy before the reveal, but there was plenty of tension nonetheless and Hawk and Fisher's confrontation kept me on the edge of my seat. Loved it.

    8. I liked the fact that Green split Hawk and Fisher up in this installment. This made the characters a great deal of trouble that made them remember their faults. There was a lot of twists to the plot, and the characters' growth was awesome! I can't wait to get to the next installment, and finish up with the Forest Kingdom Saga.Cheers Pretties!

    9. Nothing special. It was as good as the rest of the series. So if you liked the rest, read this one. If you didn't like other books of this series, of course you wouldn't like this one.

    10. Most of this series is just fantasy fluff, but the scene where the community and the guards were clearing away rubble after the explosion to try to save those trapped was actually quite moving.

    11. Not a great book, but Green is getting better at description, even if his plots can be a little thin in this series.
