SpecMusicMuse Review—Blood and Steel: Legends of La Gaul, Volume 1 by Steven L. Shrewsbury

BloodandSteel-650X432Fans of Gorias La Gaul will love Blood and Steel, a collection of short stories by Steven L. Shrewbury featuring the orneriest, toughest warrior to ever tread foot in the antediluvian world. The stories are set in different periods of Gorias’s long 700+ year life, with the first story bringing you the gory tale of his birth.

In addition to learning more about Gorias, you also get to learn about his father and the tribe of Nordic barbarians his father had been the chieftain of. A look into the culture that raised him gives you great insight into why Gorias is the way he is. So not only does a reader get all the gory action and adventure common among S&S tales but also a lot of depth regarding the world Gorias lives in, the events that shaped his life, and the psychology of the old warrior, himself.

This collection is a must-have for any fan of Gorias La Gaul or for that matter any fan of Sword & Sorcery.

Best to read while listening to: the soundtrack to Conan the Barbarian, any Iron Maiden song, and a dash of Iced Earth.
