In Under a Colder Sun, Greg James introduces us to his latest creation, Khale the Wanderer. Khale is an antihero; he is a murderer and a mercenary. But there is something compelling about this character that makes me want to read on about him and his exploits. James uses Khale to explore some dark story lines in this book, which is the first in what is hopefully a long series. James introduces a new world with a very grim religion and mythology where there is little hope of overcoming the darkness that surrounds the people. This is a great read for anyone who enjoys darker fantasy novels, and I am looking forward to the next one in the series.
I give it five cocktails.
