"And it's a debut! I'm finally writing my review after reading this more than a year ago because I just finished the sequel, As Flies To Wanton Boys, which is just as good. The anti-hero, Tarmun Vykers, is the baddest guy in fantasy, even more so than the Bloody Nine. The writing is superb, and you get to know the characters like close friends. Somewhat reminiscent of Black Company as far as camaraderie goes, but far more action. The ultimate battle is the best and biggest this side of Coltaine's Chain of Dogs march or those in The Ten Thousand/Macht trilogy.
And now I see it's not available, even for Kindle, which is how I bought it and the sequel. It would be a shame if more people don't have access to this great book. Wonder what's going on. Buy it used if you have to but buy it."
