Spread the magic . . . The Fish the Fighters and the Song-girl, by Janet Morris and Chris Morris, is the latest book in Perseid Press' Sacred Band of Stepsons series, and an Author's Cut edition, containing both new tales and six classic stories from the million-copy best-selling Thieves' World(TM) series. These stories broke new ground in fantasy both for their dark and lyrical approach and their unforgettable characters. The main protagonist in these stories is Tempus, commander of the Sacred Band, which now includes several new characters, including Cassander, the Band's horse-and-human doctor who stars in the big new novella that opens this book. The writing is sophisticated and exquisite. The stories are gritty,violent, sometimes sensual, and full of observations about the nature of life. The opening novella gave the book its name and brings to this venerable series several female warriors cast in the tradition of the fabled Amazons. Morrises know their history, so each story has the ring of truth. The story 'The Fish the Fighters and the Song-girl' is worth the price of the entire book. Equally as amazing are the framing stories which set off the six vintage stories. With thirteen tales in all, including icon stories update and expanded to create a novelized whole, this volume shows why the Sacred Band of Stepsons series is a must for those who love historical fantasy, myth and legend, horses and ancient cavalry -- and, oh yes, Magic. Magic abounds. So pick up your copy and join the Band first in fabled Sanctuary and then in Pelasgia, as they venture into realms more mythic than ever before. Oh, I forgot to tell you about the three female 'Stragglers' and three young Stepson trainees, which make this book a perfect gift for YA to adult readers, but not for those under thirteen.

Tempus and the Sacred Band of Brothers bring Greek mythology to life yet again in this wonderful (and wonderfully written) novel. If you are a fan of the genre grab this real fast, then visit the author's page for many more wonderful tales of Tempus. Recommended.

The Fish the Fighters and the Song-Girl is a highly captivating read, full to the brim of amazing characters - fish-folk, rouges, a visionary song-girl and the Nisibisi witch. Philosophy, epic adventure and fantasy pour from page to page in the amazing creations of Tempus and his Sacred Band - so, journey into the worlds of gods and goddesses and take a deep breath and engage in the magnificence. Pure brilliance 5*****

I love Janet and Chris Morris’ incredible books. They continued to deliver another epic dark fantasy that I couldn’t put down. Tempus and the Sacred Band are back for another entertaining adventure. It’s filled with non-stop action, memorable characters you will think about long after you finish reading. Well-researched and incredible story-telling is what brings this epic novel to the top. I highly recommend and give it the highest marks.

If you enjoy mythological books about mortals, gods, and warriors you'll love this one. This is book three in the series and although I'm new to this writer, I'm enjoying the authors work and can't get enough of it.
