Pieces of Hate: Book Two of the Assassin Series review ✓ 3 ↠ During the Dark Ages a thing named Temple slaughtered Gabriel's family A man with snake eyes charged him to pursue the assassin wherever he may strike next and destroy him Gabriel never believed he’d still be following Temple almost a thousand years laterBHandIn the wilderness of the American West the assassin is set to strike again Despite his centuries long curse Gabriel is still but a man scarred and bitter The town of Deadwood has seen many such men though it’s never seen anything uite like the half demon known as Temple. This is an odd little series of novellas from horror writer Tim Lebbon This second piece Pieces of Hate also included the first story in the series Dead Man's Hand so I'll review them both In Dead Man's Hand we're introduced to Gabriel a seemingly immortal man on the track of a demon man named Temple who killed Gabriel's family long ago Gabriel has numerous wounds on his body that ache and open when he's near his nemesis Temple We get the feeling this cat and mouse game has played out before and will again The story is told from the perspective of a store owner so we're somewhat removed The ending isn't very satisfying In Pieces of Hate we move from a Western setting to a pirate one Because it's a play on words you see Get it Anywayonce again Gabriel is chasing after Temple but this time the tale is told from Gabriel's point of view It also ends in a rushed and unsatisfactory way The rest of this review is kind of spoilery so you're warned The fact that Gabriel seems unable to injure Temple makes these books pointless We follow along as he chases this demon who killed his family The demon kills lots of bystanders There's kind of a standoff And Temple escapes unharmed Next time it will be the same story in a new setting Why am I reading these again I mean a major part of the appeal of revenge stories is seeing the person GET THE REVENGE The next novella takes place in WW2 but I just don't care I know Lebbon can write His short story Pay the Ghost is absolutely haunting And I've read his collection White and Other Tales of Ruin and it was uite good These novellas just aren't

During the Dark Ages a thing named Temple slaughtered Gabriel's family A man with snake eyes charged him to pursue the assassin wherever he may strike next and destroy him Gabriel never believed he’d still be following Temple almost a thousand years laterBecause Temple may. Pieces of Hate is technically an okay book However it’s exactly the sort of thing that I normally try to avoid like the plague because I kind of hate it It’s one of the better examples of its kind of story but it’s still not my cup of tea There’s very little that I find boring than a fridged wife—nameless even to add insult to injury—and a manly revenge uest in which the only other women encountered are prostitutes who are of course repulsive to the protagonist It’s a level of casual misogyny either the author’s or the characters’—it doesn’t matter that I found alienating from page oneRead the full review at SF Bluestocking

Pieces of Hate Book Two of the Assassin SeriesBe a demon the man with snake eyes cursed Gabriel with a life long enough to hunt him down Now he has picked up Temple's scent again The Caribbean sea is awash with pirate blood and in such turmoil the outcome of any fight is far from certainFree bonus novelette Dead Man’s. Read all my reviews on Pieces of Hate contains the title story as well as a preuel called Dead man's Hand Both tell the tale of Gabriel hunting Temple across the globe and through the ages Gabriel doesn't have a choice but to do as he does This could set for a very interesting series as the entire setting and cast of the series except for the two mains can change with each story The preuel story I thought was a bit messy but Pieces of Hate had pirates so that made up for a lot I didn't feel it reached its full potential though and I don't feel invested enough in the series to continue Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review
