About Jonathan Moeller

Standing over six feet tall, Jonathan Moeller has the piercing blue eyes of a Conan of Cimmeria, the bronze-colored hair a Visigothic warrior-king, and the stern visage of a captain of men, none of which are useful in his career as a computer repairman, alas.

He has written the "Demonsouled" trilogy of sword-and-sorcery novels, and continues to write the "Ghosts" sequence about assassin and spy Caina Amalas, the "$0.99 Beginner's Guide" series of computer books, and numerous other works.

Review by: Tim Pollard on June 18, 2014 :
This is a pretty dark story about death magic, and the people who fight against it.

The more interesting element of this story (and it's sequels) is that it explores characters that are normally just the supporting cast of other fantasy works, ie the titular Ghosts, who are basically the spies and assassins of the good-ish empire.

It's a good fun read, and I can't really describe why it doesn't achieve Greatness for me, but it doesn't, so it's Good or four out of five stars.

Strengths
* Explores a couple of character archetypes that are often simply background characters if that in other fantasy works in interesting ways.

Weaknesses:
* Nothing worth mentioning.

The book was a tad slow at the start but picked up steam along the way. Didn't make me burn any midnight oil though. Nice read all the same.
