THIS SERIES IS MEANT TO BE UNREALISTIC FUN. If complete believability is a must, it might not be for you... but if you like the sound of an awesome female brawler standing toe to toe with huge men and monsters in brutal fistfights on sheer toughness and badassery, maybe it is.
Retired boxer Lincoln never imagined he would fight a girl, let alone be pushed to his limits by one. After meeting goth metal singer and ultimate bar brawler Freya in the drunken battle of a lifetime, he gets a surprise invitation to join her crew. He and the band develop a strong friendship as he shares his sports and life knowledge with them and they help him recapture his youth. But when evil seeks to claim a band member's soul along with her gift of foresight, the modern day warriors must confront the devil's own scholar... the Dark Man.
A novelette. First chronologically in the Gothic Warrior series.

Book exchanged for an honest review~ Tales of the Gothic Warrior is a series of short stories about Freya Blackstar. Freya is a gothic warrior that enjoys fighting against others and the challenge that fighting brings her. Each tale showcases more of Freya's talent, strength, and courage. Billy Wong writes exceptional female characters that are not in the slightest weak. He continues to be a favorite author of mine for this reason.
