The Axe and the Throne, Book 1 of the Bounds of Redemption series.
"I thought this book was great. I'm an epic fantasy buff and found this tory to resonate with me in a similar way as Joe Abercrombie's The First Law. The story was great, the characters are awesome, and it's written in a way that you would expect from seasoned fantasy." ***** Goodreads.com
"Not since reading A Wise Man's Fear have I stayed up all night to finish a book!" ***** Amazon.com
"What a great book... You only think you know what is going to happen." ***** Amazon.com
