Rated 4.50/5 based on 4 reviews
The first meeting between Glaeken and Rasalom, back in the dim recesses of the First Age. Written in the 1970s, and in a style geared more toward fantasy than the hardboiled prose of the Repairman Jack novels, "Demonsong" kicks off Wilson's massive Secret History of the World.

I've been a big FPW fan for years and this is a welcome addition to the Adversary series.

Loved it. A well written fantasy adventure with everything one could want; friendship, mutiny, music, and a good old-fashioned street brawl.

I am writing this as a huge fan of the Adversary series and Repairman Jack, having read every single book from The Keep to Fatal Error to Nightworld, which is my favourite.

For years, this story was like the Holy Grail to fans of the Adversary series. Numerous requests were made on message boards begging for a copy to read. Just once.

Demonsong is an invaluable and much-awaited insight into The First Age. It works similarly well as a stand-alone story and as a significant beginning to the Adversary series.

I truly enjoyed the well-woven tale set in a time when the sword was mighty and magic struck fear in everyone, except Glaeken, a mysterious warrior from out of town. Written perfectly in the language of a First Age, there was much humour and great conversation.

I loved the beginnings of a fine friendship between Glaeken and Cragjaw which I found reminiscent of Jack and Abe's friendship in the Repairman Jack series.

Demonsong left me wanting to know more about Glaeken and Rasalon's early lives and subsequent conflicts, and of course, about Cragjaw and his adventures with Glaeken.

A great read. I highly recommend it. And if you loved it, The Keep is the next one to read.
