    1 thought on “Roil

    1. Today's weather was different because of the heavy rain last couple of weeks. It was hot and I need something to enjoy in a hot day and I thought reading science fiction or something related to desert might help me fulfill my day. Unfortunately, I end up eating in the nearby fast food while cursing myself because of my great disappointment. Hey, the weather changed again and it rain so heavy and I have to walk in the flood. My afternoon sucks and I can't sleep because of what happened.If you rea [...]

    2. 3.5'How does one go about saving the world?' Roil is the first part of a duology The Nightbound Land and as such it mostly sets up the stage for the second book. I am going to rate it by how much it succeeds in doing that. Credit where credit's due sort of a thing.The world, Shale, is a world with two moons and a dozen of independent city-states. Now almost all of those marvellous cities are disappearing under the onslaught of a strange spore-bearing storm that transforms everything it comes in [...]

    3. The land of Shale is in trouble. The Roil, a wave of darkness filled with unnatural monsters, is sweeping across the continent, engulfing everything it encounters. Out of twelve cities, only four remain standing. Humanity is fighting back in every way it can, but internal divisions between political factions increase the chaos, and more and more it seems like the end is nigh. It’s up to a drug-addicted boy, a young woman out for revenge for the death of her parents, and a man who may be thousa [...]

    4. rantingdragon/roil-theRoil is the impressive first installment in The Nightbound Land duology by Trent Jamieson, up-and-coming Australian author of the urban fantasy trilogy Death Works. Jamieson’s newest novel showcases a powerful imaginative streak, creating a darkly fascinating world and successfully combining elements of science fiction, fantasy, steampunk and horror.Roil is an apocalyptic tale set in a world called Shale, which lies on the brink of destruction by a seemingly unstoppable f [...]

    5. 4.5 Stars Roil by Trent Jamieson is a superb science fiction and steampunk novel that comes close to perfect marks from me.This book is made special by the world cheap by Jamieson. It is a character in itself. The world is slowly being overtaken and swallowed whole by the Roil. The Roil is itself an entity but it also contains many horrific denizens. Monstrous Wolves, flying leaves, and smokey moths are just a few to mention.The characters are just fine, I only wish that we would have been given [...]

    6. staffersmusings/2Is steampunk the new vampire urban fantasy? I feel like there's been a huge outbreak of steampunk this year. I guess it makes sense as a natural out growth of the huge boom in urban fantasy. For the most part steampunk tends to be more familiar to people than second world fantasy or space opera with no connection to the "real world". It is traditionally set in a Victorian or Old West environment with historical elements that make sense to mainstream readers and doesn't require v [...]

    7. Back in Grade 7, we studied short stories and storytelling. We covered Freitag’s Pyramid: introduction, inciting force, rising action, crisis/climax, denouement, and resolution. We studied The Most Dangerous Game, and we listed the different types of conflict: man vs man, man vs himself, man vs nature, etc. It’s a simplistic way to analyze literature, but it does provide a good foundation to build upon in later years, once you have the ability to make more nuanced observations. I still remem [...]

    8. 3.5/5egalley thanks to Angry Robot Interesting premise isn't it? And totally wrong.I had to literally fight my way through the book. Don't get me wrong, - this is a good book, interesting, original, leaves plenty to work with for your imagination But my God, would it have hurt to give us a little bit of prologue or some sort of world description instead of just throwing us into the deep end and let us swim or sink?It took me 5 chapters to understand the structure. The quote in the beginning of e [...]

    9. When David's father is killed before his eyes he believes his world is ending. Unfortunately, not only is David's personal world ending, it's also ending for everyone else: the Roil is coming.Margaret is the only child of famous inventors. The Roil has laid siege to their city for thirty years, and it's through their inventiveness that the city survives. But their big experiment goes horribly wrong.Cadell finds David alone on the street and saves him from a fate similar to his father's. Cadell i [...]

    10. After reading some other reviews, I was a tad anxious that the alleged infodumps and character-switching would put me off Roil. What I actually found was the opposite.The world of Shale was a world I might have dreamed, and then been unable to find the words - so I'm pleased that Jamieson found a way to pin it down. It all made perfect, poetic sense to me. Yes, the archetypes we all know and love are here, but they are beautifully done, in a Fellowship of the Ring meets Dune kind of way, with an [...]

    11. I guess I expected more. Some very interesting ideas to be sure, but some things about this book just didn't work for me. To start with, some plain bad editing. An hour or two could pass between one line of text and the next, with no warning. The short chapters, each with a fake quote, jarred the text and kept any flow from being build up.We are informed that each character is important, or from important families, but never really learn why. Not only do I not care for them, I didn't care one wa [...]

    13. Roilis the first book in a duology to be released by Angry Robot books, the second will be called Nights Engines.The storyShale is in trouble, dying. A vast, chaotic, monster-bearing storm known only as the Roil is expanding, consuming the land.Where once there were twelve great cities, now only four remain, and their borders are being threatened by the growing cloud of darkness. The last humans are fighting back with ever more bizarre new machines. But one by one the defences are failing. And t [...]

    14. I got an advanced reading copy of this book through NetGalley. The premise was very intriguing and I was excited to read the book. It was an incredibly creative world, that followed some interesting characters through a dark steampunk adventure. This book is the first in a series called The Nightbound Lands.Margaret is the daughter of some famous scientists, when her home town falls to the Roil she is forced to flee through the Roil and try to find a way to help stop the Roil's expansion. David [...]

    15. Good enough but not that great here I present before you my views on Trent Jamieson's upcoming book Roil.Here is the summary of the book:Shale is in trouble - the creature-filled darkness known as the Roil is expanding, consuming the land, swallowing cities whole. Where once there were 12 metropolises, now only 4 remain. It's up to a drug addict, an old man and a woman bent on revenge to try to save their city - and the world.Its steampunk - its sci-fi - its full of action and its a dystopic fut [...]

    16. Roil is the first book of Trent Jamieson's Nightbound Land duology. I've had it on my TBR since around the time it came out, but have only just got around to reading it.Roil is set in a very different world to ours. Every layer of it is different, and so it takes a little while for the world to be fully built up — to Jamieson's credit, he avoids large chunks of info dumping — the blurb doesn't do that aspect justice. The Roil itself is a seething storm of monsters and destruction which can o [...]

    17. A Review by Loren FosterOriginally posted at Netgalley10/06/11Title: RoilAuthor: Trent JamiesonPublisher: Angry RobotPub Date: August, 30, 2011ISBN: 9780857661845Format: PaperbackPages: 432List Price: $7.99According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary ( merriam-webster/dictio ) the word ROIL is a verb whose first known use dates back to 1590. Definition is given as: to make turbid by stirring up the sediment or dregs; to stir up; disturb; to move turbulently; be in a state of turbulence or agitati [...]

    18. It isn't often that I will write a review for a book after only 79 pages. I probably won't ever do it again, but never say never, or ever, as it were. On a side note, I seem to spend a lot of time reading random books from my bookshelves while I'm waiting for the semi-sketchy romances on my first-gen Sony ereader to load, but that's another story.First, let me say, that Roil is dense with information, doesn't have a lot of explanation, is hard to understand, and has some of the most extensive wo [...]

    19. I picked this book up via NetGalley as it sounded like an interesting read. While a little confusing to begin with, it didn’t take long to get a picture of what was going on. The author really does throw you in the deep end, though it is well worth sticking with because even if you feel like you’re playing catch up, it’s an exciting place to be in!It’s been a long time since I’ve hit upon such a richly imagined world. It was so alien, so new, so fascinating, and so beautifully describe [...]

    20. The concept behind this book is a fascinating one, in which darkness is slowly taking over the world and transforming everything within it to something foul and violent and, in some places, genuinely creepy. The dead walk. Tiny moths flutter in your eyes and mouth and take over your brain so that you become a sentient extension of the Roil itself. And the shrinking pockets of humanity have to do their best to survive the Roil while also surviving all the other problems inherent with corrupt poli [...]

    21. It seems as though any book published by Angry Robot turns out to be wicked good. They're not your typical steampunk or urban fantasy novels. Roil is another example of a crazy good book. This continent, Shale, - even the entire world, is being consumed by this thing called the Roil. Heat loving monsters like you've never heard of before.quarg hounds, witmoths, garment fluteslots of baddies. From the back of the book - "It's up to a decadent wastrel, a four thousand year old man and a young woma [...]

    22. Originally reviewed at incaseofsurvival here incaseofsurvival/post-apocThis book is brutal, very dark, almost unremittingly so. Even the best of the grimdark genre needs moments of light or hope, though, or the book becomes emotionally draining- like this one does. So much so I had to stop half way through and read something else. I sincerely hope the second book has some more bright spots in it.The writing is competent, often poetic, but sometimes a little overwrought. Now, I love a bit of melo [...]

    23. Roil is a hard book to rate - and even to comment on.On the one hand, the world-building was great. Unique. Fascinating. Clearly a lot of thought has gone into it, a mixture of alternative universe / high fantasy / steampunk (with possible scifi elements).On the other hand, there's the writing. I suspect this may be a matter of taste - some people will love Jamieson's style, with its run-on sentences (seriously, someone should have exterminated 2/3 of the commas used in this book) and abrupt shi [...]

    24. I have rated this book a three, because every single part of it was either ridiculously stupid, or absolutely brilliant. I want to give it both a one and a five, because while there are parts that I love, and wish other books could pull off, there are an equal number of parts that I detest.Endothermic weaponry to fight an enemy that thrives on oppressive heat? Amazing.Doing that thing where the author makes up a bunch of terms and never just explains any but makes the reader figure it out? Annoy [...]

    25. Trent Jamieson is a writer of no small talent, one who suffuses his richly imagined worlds with authentic human feeling and - as a result - portrays realistic characters in extraordinary circumstances. Roil is a prodigious work of imagination. The world of Roil has a history as complex as its current social and geographical topography (and on that last point, I could have done with a map to plot the journeys of our protagonists because the place feels that real).Roil allows Trent to give free re [...]

    26. "The history of this world cannot be understood without a complete knowledge of the three forces that govern it. The Roil, the Engine and, of course, The Breaching Spire. We know of a Mechanical Winter, we have heard whisperings of the punishment meted out for that by whatever brute intellect rules Tearwin Meet. We know that the Roil is ancient, that it has come before.So what is it that we know?Nothing.Our history is but one of events, scattered and continuing, but never in the context that suc [...]

    27. The land of Shale is in trouble. The Roil, a wave of darkness filled with unnatural monsters, is sweeping across the continent, engulfing everything it encounters. Out of twelve cities, only four remain standing. Humanity is fighting back in every way it can, but internal divisions between political factions increase the chaos, and more and more it seems like the end is nigh. It’s up to a drug-addicted boy, a young woman out for revenge for the death of her parents, and a man who may be thousa [...]

    28. Things I didn't like about this book:- It was extremely poorly edited- The plot didn't make any sense to me- It took me a long, long time to become invested in any of the characters BUT- At about 60% in, things started to happen!- The female characters are really kick-ass, especially the wisecracking female pilot of a living, sentient (I think) ship!- The world-building was really intriguing. This would be a really good beach book (because it doesn't really matter if beach books don't make sense [...]

    29. This book impressed me.I feel I need to congratulate Angry Robot for yet another great signing in Trent Jamieson. After reading Roil I must pick up his other books. Roil seems to have it all, a rich world, characters that both engage and horrify you and a plot that makes you want to come back for more. It was a very difficult book to put down at night, the pages seemed to turn themselves. Roil also has greatness, so far no epic battles, but it's there, that feeling of something epic. It's hard t [...]

    30. This one's a DNF. I tried, I really did. I made it through 183 pages before giving up. For some reason, I just couldn't get into the story. I feel like there wasn't enough background information provided about the Roil, and that made it really difficult for me to actually understand what was going on and feel engaged with what was happening. It's a shame, because I really enjoyed Trent Jamieson's Death Most Definite books, and was hoping that this would be in a similar style. It's really really [...]
