Lords of Asylum by Kevin Wright is my first exposure to the author’s writings despite the fact that I’ve heard a huge amount about him. So, when I saw he had a new release with this book, I decided to pick it up. I should mention that I’m a big fan of grimdark fantasy and absolutely adore books where cynical antiheroes travel through the Dung Ages. I’m a fan of Joe Abercrombie, Mark Lawrence, Rob J. Hayes, and other authors who have a bleak hellish worldview of medieval life. This definitely falls under that category and anyone who picks up this book should be prepared for an uncompromising R-rated story.
