the fights are bloody and violent enough
12 January 2020 | by christopher-underwoodSee all my reviews

Third in the series, Battles Without Honour & Humanity and even more confusing than the first two. Those were interesting and involving enough to persist, especially with the historic background but here it seems to be just one 'battle' after another. Admittedly the fights are bloody and violent enough but the constant references to duty and family and honour and betrayal is very waring. I found it difficult to keep up with all the inter family struggles and very soon gave up trying.
