There are some tall stories about the caverns beneath the Citadel - about magic and mages and monsters and gods. Wydrin of Crosshaven has heard them all, but she's spent long enough trawling caverns and taverns with her companion Sir Sebastian to learn that there's no money to be made in chasing rumours. But then a crippled nobleman with a dead man's name offers them a job: exploring the Citadel's darkest depths. It sounds like just another quest with gold and adventure ...if they're lucky, they might even have a tale of their own to tell once it's over. These reckless adventurers will soon learn that sometimes there is truth in rumour. Sometimes a story can save your life.File Under: Fantasy [ Beware of the Gods | Dungeon Crawlers | The Brood Rises | Prince of Wounds ]

The Copper Promise is pretty standard sword and sorcery fare, done well and with a lot of work on the world-building, rather than just being pseudo-medieval Europe (though there are certainly significant elements of that still around in ...
I'm not sure why this just didn't work for me, I think it was just that it felt like the author could do better. I'm pretty sure I won't be reading any more set in this universe. I won't be avoiding this author but I'd like to see her write more first. (and if I ever actually publish I'm sure oth...
Wydrin and Sebastian are swords for hire and Lord Frith comes to them with a proposition: enter the forbidden Citadel and find a treasure that cannot be found anywhere else. But the Citadel is said to be more than haunted, as this was where the mages trapped the old gods during the last war, and tho...
