Clay Cooper and his band were once the best of the best - the meanest, dirtiest, most feared and admired crew of mercenaries this side of the Heartwyld. But their glory days are long past; the mercs have grown apart and grown old, fat, drunk - or a combination of the three. Then a former bandmate turns up at Clay's door with a plea for help: his daughter Rose is trapped in a city besieged by an enemy horde 100,000 strong and hungry for blood.

Jeff Harding's ability to lend a wide range of convincing voices and tones to the vast number of characters really gives life to Nicholas Eames' funny, epic, irreverent heroic fantasy story.

I have already pre-ordered the next on Kindle (Bloody Rose) and seriously hope there will be more.

This book was the worst book I have ever listened. It is self-sufficient, pompous, and doesn't bring anything new to justify the professorial tone
