    1. This is difficult to rate. I hate it when the last book in the series is the weakest one. I hate it even more when the series in question is the one I loveIt really makes me sad :(After a lot of pondering I decided to give this book 2 stars. First half of the book deserved a 3 star rating but the second half wasn’t as good so it deserved only 2 stars. Actual rating 2.5 stars.If you had a chance to read my reviews of the previous books of this series you know that I gave them much praise and th [...]


    2. Originally reviewed at Bookwraiths.Dead Man’s Steel was a novel I was eagerly looking forward to reading. The Grim Company and The Sword of the North list among my favorite grimdark novels from the recent past, so, naturally, I assumed the final volume would be the best yet. Unfortunately, after finishing this installment of the series, all I feel is disappointment and a longing for what might have been.Picking up where The Sword of the North ended, the new masters of Dorminia are the legendar [...]


    3. Found the last part easier to acclimatise with than the middle book, mind that’s oft the case. Its a tried & trusted formulaic trilogy with book 1 getting all the gang together, book 2 sees them go separate paths on their quests whilst book 3 puts them all on converging paths for the grand finale. sound familiar?? No honest im not pouring scorn on whats fast becoming a standard grimdark plot as I do actually enjoy it so long as I ration my fill of it which I have done of late & maybe o [...]


    4. Puts book downStands on tableSlow claps Luke Scull for delivering a damn good trilogyUp there with my top trilogies (Mistborn B Sanderson and Broken Empire M Lawrence). Absolutely fantastic, this final book was the best one yet and soooo satisfying. This had me on the edge of my seat, I could not put it down. I already want to go back and read the first book again. The characters are awesome. I cared for each and every one. Usually there is an annoying one (well Cole is annoying but he's annoyin [...]


    5. Great finish to a great trilogy, Jerek and Kayne are probably my favorite characters among all fanatasy books i read


    6. I've said it a couple of times as ive read through this series but the amount of complete ridiculousness that Scull was able to pack into these rather short (approx 400 page) books is absurd, but absurd in the greatest way possible. Every time you think he can pack in any more crazy plot points or ideas he somehow manages to. Some suspension of disbelief is required to enjoy these as much as I did. Also a number of characters from the trilogy will be making into to my imaginary favourite charact [...]


    7. Hey! You've got your SciFi in my Fantasy! Pretty good finale for the Grim Company, though I'd call this one the third best of the series. So, a tiny bit of let-down at the ending. Still, I devoured this series and had great fun reading all 3 of the books.



    8. This is the 3rd book in "The Grim Company" trilogy by Luke Scull. This is an epic Fantasy adventure with all the elements a great fantasy needs. In my reviews of the last two books I mentioned that they had everything a great Fantasy needs except a dragon. Well this one has the dragon! In this one the Grim Company reunites to fight an invasion of demons from out of the north and an invasion of Fade, an immortal and nearly indestructible race, from across the ocean. Both the demons and the Fade a [...]

    10. Dead Man’s Steel is book 3 of 3 in The Grim Company series. I did enjoy this book, but I found the previous two books better. The storytelling didn’t seem to flow as well as the previous two, not until the last 3rd of it. I enjoyed how the series wrapped up and it even left a small opening for another book if the author wanted to expand the series.I thought the inclusion of the Fade and their technology was a bit much, considering the first two books centered on a civilization of where machi [...]


    11. Gods above and below. I can't remember a book that has sucker-punched me this hard. It was merciless, didn't care who you loved or what you hoped for them. It completely breaks you and leaves you screaming "why why why" and yet I still loved it and still recommend it. The story was as intense as the previous two books, packed to the brim with betrayal and heartbreak. I can count on one hand how many truly happy moments there were, and still have fingers to spare. It was great to see more charact [...]


    12. It has the same gritty tone as the other books in the series and the characters come back, and keep coming backThe book is full of death and heroes coming back from death, or at least the very brink of death.It is also a book of multiple endings. An ending is not necessarily the end, even the end might not be the end, though it might be.I enjoyed the story and characters, there is a lot crammed into the pages and the pace rarely drops. A fitting, and exciting end to the series.


    13. I truly enjoyed the entire series. Was a roller coaster ride & felt that the character Cole's development wasn't exactly what it should be but the character was still very enjoyable. Look forward to more books from this author!


    14. I'm not satisfied with ending. I mean, i don't know,maybe i was expecting little bit more


    15. Disappointed -- Feel like the author suddenly had an idea for a totally different series, got excited, and decided to try to fit it into this one. Really liked the first 2 books, but this read like a fanfiction mashup.


    16. Bittersweet ending. Scull has a lot of promise to be one of my fav authors. Just felt this was rushed and had some very strange/weird plotlines. Hopefully he can bring back a novel worthy of Bk 1 or 2.


    17. As always this review can also be found on my blog The Tattooed Book Geek: thetattooedbookgeek.wordpressI received a free copy of this book courtesy of the publisher in exchange for an honest review.Dead Man's Steel is the stellar finale to Luke Scull's The Grim Company trilogy following on from The Grim Company and Sword of the North.Taking place after the events at the conclusion of the previous book (Sword of the North) we are thrust right back into the action.Told from multiple character per [...]


    18. The end of a satisfying trilogy (and you do need to read them in order). As we reach the final part a lot is thrown in, our Northern warriors, an invasion from an almost invincible from the other side of the world, and the additional problem of demons pouring in. Oh and the use of ancient technologyThis does channel the late, great David Gemmell and a bit of the modern master, Joe Abercrombie but the author tries and succeeds in giving this his own voice. Characters are well defined and you do g [...]


    19. So loved the first two books, yes the writing was clumsy and yes the world was insane but it was fun, the character are interesting and you could see some real growth in them, and the overall story arc seemed good. Like a Mark Lawernce story, but with worse dialogue, which given how rarely you get good grim fantasy is still pretty great.Now of you are in the same place as me going into the third book, stop. Put down this book and slowly step away from it, this is no Wheel of Osheim. The book sta [...]


    20. My first thoughts on reading the first book of this trilogy was that this mofo has ripped off JA , and whilst there are parallels I'm pleased to say I was wrong , I thoroughly enjoyed all 3 books , strong characters I was sad to see the back of and a satisfying conclusion. There's plenty of action and also an interesting subtext about the nature of the world the story takes place in that is alluded to throughout. Looking forward to seeing more from The Scull.


    21. I received a free copy of this ebook through Netgalley, the author Luke Scull, and/or the publisher, Berkeley Publishing Group, in exchange for a review.This is the third book in The Grim Company series. I really enjoyed this series, but unfortunately, this book pretty much ends the series. Not that I know how much further the story could have gone if it did continue. I was a bit miffed about the end results( I try not to give spoilers), but understand everyone doesn't always get a happily ever [...]


    22. I liked it a lot, at least I did until the ending. Honestly I'm not sure about the end, in some ways I like it in others I don't. Some things felt forced and some felt incomplete and some actually were resolved unsatisfactory. Also didn't like some characters and how they ended up. Even with all the issues I had I enjoyed it and overall it was an interesting series and an intriguing world and setting.


    23. Really enjoyed this latest installment in the Grim Company series. There is potential I feel for further adventures with some of the characters, although for quite a few their journey will go no further! This has been one of my favorite series. I liked (most) of the characters I met on the journey and cared what happened to them along the way which to me is what a good book is all about.


    24. That went about as well as expected! I have this image in my head of Luke Scull sniggering to himself as he thinks of each messed up situation these characters find themselves in. Still, could be worse; The Vogons didn't turn up at the end!



    25. Dead Man’s Steelconcludes Luke Scull’s thoroughly enjoyableThe Grim Company Trilogy in the gritty, hard-as-nails, barnstorming fashion which we’ve come to expect from him.On a grander scale, Dead Man’s Steel is the story of humanity’s great last stand against an implacable and far superior foe. On the individual scale, it is the many stories of heroism, redemption, sacrifice and the desire to do good under the shadow of accepting one’s own previous failing efforts that went into this [...]


    26. Dodemanswapen van Luke Scull is het derde deel in een trilogie genaamd “De eeuwen van verval”. In deze trilogie wordt een wereld geschetst waarin de Goden verslagen zijn en de nieuwe machthebbers de magie van hen hebben gestolen. Zij gebruiken de godenmagie om de huidige bevolking te onderdrukken. Een kleine groep mensen, die de naam De Donkere Broederschap heeft gekregen, probeert het regime van de nieuwe machthebbers omver te werpen. Met behulp van de overgebleven Oppermagiërs hebben zij [...]


    27. This was very good stuff but not yet 5-star level. I quite liked the final sequel as well as the whole trilogy despite a few annoying issues which deteriorated my enjoyment. Problem #1: the sheer stupidity of the love affair ongoing between Cole and Sasha. It has been driving me crazy. I wished they would make a break in their childish bickering, for a minute at least, and start a conversation as normal adults do to sort out things, or start a relationship and sleep together, or break up their r [...]


    28. Dead Man's Steel is a good, satisfying conclusion the Grim Company trilogy.  We get complete character arcs for most of the key characters, and resolution of most of the conflict and drama set up in the first two books.  This is a rough world, and one can't expect everything to resolve in happy ending fashion.  Nevertheless, conclusion was fitting, appropriate, and compelling.The book takes some significant risks.  We finally get to see the Fehd in their full glory, and it turns out that t [...]
