This story is about Mhets Sorrowbringer a stealth warrior who has taken from the gods with some companions and had tried to save the love of his life only to find that the king had disposed of her before he could pay for her release. Mhets became enraged and brought on the onslaught of everyone evil in the town.. a true massacre. His comrades were slowly taken from the death god.. due to the stealing of their treasure.. and as Mhets goes along his way he knows death will be knocking ..but his side kick Ramkin who has been traveling along side has offered up a witch to see if she can help. She in turn takes Mhets on a journey of evil tasks that brings forth some sorcery, appeals, and the vision of his beloved .. It was a great journey to read and was very happy with the ending as I feel his character can do so much.
This was an absolutely fantastic read. Anyone who enjoys dark fantasy, or just fantasy for that fact, this book should immediately be put on your reading list. It grabs you from the start and hardly lets go. The banter between Mhets and Ramkin is wonderful. It gives a unique world-outlook from the eyes of an embittered warrior. Recommended! I will definitely be picking up the rest of his books.
