Overview

The demon Dismay's murderous nature has earned him the ire of his beloved wife, who has sent him away in a fit of temper. In his exile he ventures south into the land of Lutawa, drawn there by the prayers of abused and desperate women who beg him to grant them vengeance against the men who cruelly rule their lives-and Dismay is pleased to do it.

Still, murder is hard and dirty work.

When an avid desire for a bath brings him to a fine Lutawan estate, he meets two beautiful young women. Ui and Eleanor are well-acquainted with the whispered tales of the demon Dismay, who slays men but never women, and they're delighted to entertain their fearsome guest, but they warn him to beware.

Lutawa is ruled by an immortal king, who punishes treason with the terrible weapon of infernal fire. Believing this king to be the same cruel deity known in the north as Hepen the Watcher, Dismay resolves to kill him-and accidentally draws Ui and Eleanor into his schemes.

Those who help Dismay risk a fiery death, those who hinder him risk the demon's bloody retribution, while Dismay, still yearning for his wife's forgiveness, discovers that love can be as hazardous as the wrath of Hepen the Watcher.

    this is the second book of the series. women can't be taught to

    this is the second book of the series.
    women can't be taught to read. They are not treated to well and when they pray for vengence against the men who treat them badly. Dismay shows up and kills the men.
    their is two lands that have different gods who are fighting.
    Dismay wants to kill the King that others say is a God and cant be killed. Thier are no maps to the castle.
    I think I might have missed somethings in the ifirst book.But it stills a good story that stands alone.
    I was given this ebook from Librarything.

    As I mentioned in my review for "The Dread Hammer" I a

    As I mentioned in my review for "The Dread Hammer" I am not a regular fan of fantasy but found the story of Smoke very entertaining.

    Now we have the sequel "Hepen the Watcher" and we learn that Smoke does indeed get punished by his wife Ketty for his brutal slaying of a midwife.

    Smoke is definitely an anti-hero. On the one hand, he is a ruthless killer. On the other hand, he believes what he is doing is right. Now, as a husband and father, he finds himself in turmoil over his animalistic nature.

    As he travels the Puzzle Lands in exile, he reluctantly teams up with people he once would have murdered on sight or, at the very least, simply ignored. What follows is an exciting adventure that, while being a self-contained story, leaves us longing for more.

    Great reading!
