Like Henry V???

by nickmamatas

Our pals at io9.com have reviewed our launch titles to great glee and joy here at HQ.

All You Need Is KILL: Sakurazaka consciously constructed All You Need Is Kill like a great video game. In this he is mostly successful. The reader will feel immersed into Kiriya’s dilemma, not just through the all the action but also through his internal struggle to keep from giving up, to puzzle out what the hell is happening.

The Lord of the Sands of Time: ...there’s a great deal of passion to be found in The Lords of the Sands of Time. More of a tease than a spoiler— there’s a stirring speech to the troops in the penultimate act that has the same punch as Shakespeare’s St. Crispin’s Day Speech. Yeah that’s right, I just referenced The Forever War and Henry V …

Aw yeah!

    For what it’s worth, I pre-ordered Sands of Time, read it, ordered KILL, and got that from my bookstore last night. So at the risk of sounding like an overly-entitled geek: NEXT! :)

    Great job so far. I can’t wait to see what you’ve got coming in the future.

    Well, it’s no King Lear shout-out, but I suppose it will do.

    Nice.
