Overview

Hero For Hire by C.B. Pratt

Eno the Thracian - Swift Sword, Reasonable Rates

When you live in Ancient Greece, monsters and gods are just part of the scenery...until they run amok. Then you need to hire a hero. There's nobody better at out-witting a sphinx, charming a goddess, or swinging a sword than Eno the Thracian. Armed with a dry sense of humor, a body like living rock, and a wide experience of love, death, and olive oil, Eno is just what the philosopher ordered...if you can afford him.

In the first book of the series, a king hires Eno to rid an island of a harpy. He never expects the mission to turn into a mystery that shakes the throne of Zeus Himself. An undead army is about to arise under the banner of a witch queen which will destroy everyone and everything in its path. Eno must fight against the Dead or join them as Hekate's general...and lover.

"If you're a fan of humor, adventure, or a story that's loaded with Greek mythology, this is the perfect book. Even if you DON'T like those things, this is a fantastic read. Great pacing, wonderful humor and wit, and we get to meet a character who instantly goes into my pantheon of people to watch. Highest recommendation." - Terry Maggert, Author of The Fearless series

I love mythology, and this story does a fantastic job of weaving together the stories of the Greek Gods. I'd heard a lot about this book, and finally got around to it on my TBR list. What a fabulous surprise. I've now got to reshuffle my list to get the rest of the series closer to the top. Great writing, the pacing was perfect, wonderful plot, and superb characters. I'd recommend this to anyone who likes a good action/adventure story, and even more so if you enjoy old Spartan/Greek/Roman era fiction.

Nice story. The hero didn't take himself too seriously. Looking forward to the others in this series.

A very good read. The author combines contemporary sensibilities with ancient settings to create a compelling world and a very fun story. Serious and irreverent by turns, it keep me interested until the end.

A very excellent book! No faults to be found other than a few grammer or spelling mistakes, easily overlooked for the quality this read possesed. The quick wit and dynamic interplay of and with the main character mixed with appropriate humurous dialogue when needed, truly marks this authors ability as one to follow. And so I shall! Dale M.

This was a delightful adult read for adults who like Rick Riordan's books. The characters are quirky, the hero is - well, a perfect hero. I hope there will be future books.

Reviewed by Barbara Garcia for Readers' Favorite Hero For Hire by C.B. Pratt pulls you into the world of Eno the Thracian, and is told in the first person narrative. While most heroes and soldiers are off fighting in the Trojan war, Eno accepts a job dealing with a harpy that's been harassing a kingdom. It's in this kingdom that Eno acquires a sidekick, Phandros. A rather suspicious character at first, Phandros proves himself to be of great value. Never one to miss a beat, Eno is certain that selling the captured harpy will bring him enough money to buy the hand of the maiden he's become enamored with. Betrayal by his friend, a ship's captain, sends Eno on yet another adventure as he now must rescue his stolen harpy. As soon as he and Phandros get off the mysterious island his “friend” has stranded them on, that is! In Hero For Hire, C.B. Pratt did a great job of weaving mythology with historical references, and I loved Eno. He's a down-to-earth hero, not overly confident, but he certainly got the job done in every case. I didn't care for Phandros when he first came on the scene, and was fairly suspicious of him, but I ended up really liking him; he was a great companion to Eno. Superb character building and descriptive writing puts you in the action, and I walked alongside Eno effortlessly as he told me his tales. The book didn't end the way I thought it would, but since it is the first book of a trilogy, I didn't mind. I look forward to seeing what else this hero will be tasked with in the next book!

C.B. Pratt has penned a rollicking series about Eno the Thracian, the physically over-developed hero-for-hire who romps through the ancient world slaying dangerous beasts, encountering Greek gods, and saving princesses -- all with his tongue firmly planted in cheek. Perfect for fans of Rick Riordan.

If you liked Clash of the Titans or The Odyssey, you'll also love traveling with Eno as he hires himself out to help a young king whose kingdom is plagued by misfortunes of mythical proportion. Eno has the strength of the heroes we know from Greek myths but something of a modern sensibility that makes him wonder, for example, whether a harpy that figures in the plot might have a soft side that no one else sees. This book is first of a series but has a satisfying ending that made me want to find out what Eno's future holds as well as follow up on hints that he may have an intriguing past.
