I'm lost but it was good
by marco529

Ok so Delphi is back an gone again , but the story was good. Now that being said, I would also like to say thank you to the writers for finally getting the group some decent weapons , now if theyd just learn that 7.62x39 is an Ak round and is different than 7.62x51 nato used by the styer Ryan carries

Familiar and Editing woes
by recycler

Delphi - love the character

Cannies - one of the more boring threats of the Deathlands

Editing - Crappy editing is running rampant in almost everything I read nowadays, but none more irritating and abundant as in the "Desert Kings". Spelling mistakes abound!!!!

Pollotta - It has gotten to where I know who has written a certain DeathLands book before the end of the 10th page. Certain characters speech patterns are exaggerated, while other characters strengths are under-utilized, the amount of back-story, the amount of "techiness" or lack thereof.

Overall - Despite the annoying grammar and spelling mistakes...the story was interesting,&#160;though slightly stale. Bringing in one of the Rogan brothers was an excellent touch though offing him before any interaction with the Group was disappointing.

Desert Kings
by skullspliter

Was a pretty good book, it &#160;got back to old death lands was some questions for me answered and new ones rasied. And if any thing else it's just a book for your collection.

my thought.
