Reviews of Men at Arms (1993)
Review by Lilliana (2003-03-12)
While still developing the protagonists of the watch series, this novel comes in to give the first hint of what's to come in Feet of Clay and the Fifth Elephant. A basic cop-chase-criminal setting, where the stage is set and the roles are cast, but some keep aces up their sleeves. Including a novel idea for a fantasy setting (I won't spoil the fun, I'm keeping it a secret what it is), this novel actually presents Leonard de Quirm, coupled by the incredible Patrician (from behind he looks like a carnivorous flamingo, mind you), and a well-kept secret. Actually two. Well, three on the whole. Alright, it's really full of secrets in there. Just read!
