There are some far-fetched rumours about the caverns beneath the Citadel…

Some say the mages left their most dangerous secrets hidden there; others, that great riches are hidden there; even that gods have been imprisoned in its darkest depths.

For Lord Frith, the caverns hold the key to his vengeance. Against all the odds, he has survived torture and lived to see his home and his family taken from him … and now someone is going to pay. For Wydrin of Crosshaven and her faithful companion, Sir Sebastian Caverson, a quest to the Citadel looks like just another job. There’s the promise of gold and adventure. Who knows, they might even have a decent tale or two once they’re done.

But sometimes there is truth in rumour.

Soon this reckless trio will be the last line of defence against a hungry, restless terror that wants to tear the world apart. And they’re not even getting paid.

3,5 stars. A nice adventure, d&d quest style, with dungeons, action, mercenaries, ancient Gods and mysterious cripples. Very fast moving and constructed in episodes. It starts off simply but the story grew on me, the author has a lot of imagination and the characters are all competent, flawed and re...

4.0 The Copper Promise - Jen Williams
Yes, it's another first-book-in-a-trilogy, sorry about that! 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...

3.0 The Copper Promise
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...
