The Swordsman of Carn Nebeth was recommended to his blog readers by Nathan Lowell, whose "Solar Clipper" books I've recently reviewed. I quickly followed his advice and read this short story quickly after.
Yesterday, looking for books I had liked but not yet reviewed, I got back to it. Since it's a short work, I won't disclose much about it, since it could spoil your reading. Suffice it to say it's a coming of age medieval fiction, where a farmer's son meets an old soldier. It shares quite a few common points with an other completely unrelated text I read recently (French ahead) : Baby-Foot by Thierry Crouzet.
It shares the same coming of age, the same centering on an object, the same male-centered narration.
While Baby-Foot's really "compact" writing style was really perfect with the contemporary story, the longer (yet still short) format and more "lazygoing" style was also a good choice with the medieval adventure.
Well, all in all, it shares a lot, even the "grade" : 4 stars
Nathan was right, I liked it, and started and read the other ebooks in the "Wandeirng Tales"
