A rewarding, creative “Fantasy Crime Mystery”.
I am eager to read more of the story and find what is given to be both unique and highly enjoyable.
Read the story now
The author presents a dark, savage world that is entreated by no typical protagonist—Irulen, a wizard investigator for hire, whose limited supply of power makes for an interesting dynamic and a plot ripe with potential. Specifically, the first three chapters do well to establish Irulen’s short-term objectives as an investigator, while hinting at the dark nature of the world he lives in. The side characters are paradigms of a savage domain—William Steadfrost and Jorin—are presented as weathered, ferocious men and contrast well with Irulen’s demeanor.
Overall, great job on a creative marriage of both fantasy and mystery genres!
