Overview

Hard Times Have Come to Dragon City

Retired adventurer Max Gibson has seen better times. Ever since he and his treasure-hunting friends struck it big and called it quits a decade back, it seems like things have slid downhill.

It’s hard enough to scrape by in a sprawling mountain city in which elves and dwarves live higher than humans in every way. It’s worse at night, when the groans of the zombies laying an eternal siege to the city provide a ceaseless reminder that the Dragon Emperor himself is the only thing that keeps the hordes of hungry dead from storming the walls.

When Max is called in to help invesigate the wholesale slaughter of a long-dead dwarf friend’s family, he thinks maybe he’s finally hit bottom. Then the love of his life — the elf who left him when their careers as adventurers ended — walks back through his door, desperate for his help and with nowhere else to turn.

It’s not getting any easier. That’s for sure.

Hard Times in Dragon City is the first novel in the Shotguns & Sorcery setting.

    Hard Times in Dragon City is a fantasy mystery I couldn¿t put do

    Hard Times in Dragon City is a fantasy mystery I couldn’t put down. It was fast paced and had such engaging scenes, from the goblin town chase to the verbal sparring with Yabair, to the character development to the world building, each word was placed just right. Matt Forbeck, the author, was completely invisible. And that’s the biggest compliment I can give to any author. I was totally hooked on the story and characters.
