Review

Swords, sorcery and a curious kind of chivalry prevail in Dark Mountain, the third novel in the Eno The Thracian series from author C.B. Pratt. A splendid tale of epic proportions, Pratt has envisioned a hero to rival the greats. A seeker of quests who is wonderfully flawed yet instantly affable, his tale is timeless as action prevails, whilst her plot is sure to beguile. It's lavish in its settings, the gods are ever fickle and a maelstrom of villainy is ever present, yet what ultimately makes Dark Mountain most memorable is flair. The genre is littered with lack lustre imaginings, but Pratt has a way of writing that is wholly immersive. She has a deft ear for dialogue with wit ever prevalent, which creates a contemporary undertone whilst her characters are imbued with an undeniable presence that would readily transition to wider mediums.
 
Truly original fantasy fiction is sadly rare, but Dark Mountain must surely sate the most desirous of appetites, whilst garnering many more enthralled fans for author C.B. Pratt. It is highly recommended!

Eno, our Thracian hero for hire does some serious maturing in this third installment of the series. It's poignant ( he finds love) and sad, and the author answers some of our lingering questions about why Eno is so powerful. Where does he come from? Who are his people, really? His trademark humor doesn't fade, thankfully, and Eno's wry look at a very unusual world only gets better with each book.
All of this is answered, and more, and along the way we meet more bizarre characters from the ever expanding pantheon of CB Pratt's imagination.
Outstanding adventure, highest recommendation.

Eno's adventures began in Hero for Hire when he posted his advertisement in the marketplace:

“Hero for Hire. All monsters dispatched from carnivorous geese to Minotaurs. Special rates for multiples. Eno the Thracian at the sign of the Ram’s Head, one flight up.”

Now, Eno is gearing up for his own adventure. He must travel through strange lands to discover the truth about himself. Finding the truth means traveling not only in distance but time, back to Eno's origins.

"Leaning down to listen to his smothered words, she smoothed his hair. She whispered soothingly, ancient, meaningless sounds, common to every nation and race. He clung to her all the more tightly, his tears wetting the wrap she wore around her neck.

"Vertigo swept over me, a swirling, floating sensation, as though I looked down from a great height at not another land but at another time. The boy was myself, sobbing out the details of some childhood disaster. The golden firelight blended away the lines on her face, the gray from her hair, until she wore again the appearance of my mother, the most beautiful woman in the village. I felt my father's presence at my side, so strongly that I knew I should see him if I turned, strong, alive again, his ever-present laughter making all my troubles vanish."

C. B. Pratt continues her humorous series with Dark Mountain, the third installment in the series. Adventure abounds with mythological creatures and gods of old. Ms. Pratt also offers deeper themes for the discerning reader. The books are wonderfully written, with Dark Mountain surpassing even the first two books in the series.

I'd heard rumours that this book was one where Eno gets some action and he most certainly didn't disappoint. After all, he is a hero for hire - it says so on the sign.

This book - and the whole series - is a funny and fascinating window into the ancient past, when all the other heroes were busy at the siege of Troy and monster-slaying was a lucrative profession.

Poor Eno has to combat mushrooms, a mad philosopher, a maze and even a minotaur as he seeks more knowledge about his heritage.

Yes, there are surprises in this story and plenty of humour along the way, but I won't spoil it for you. Five well-earned stars and I can't wait until the next book comes out.

Dark Mountain by C. B. Pratt is a fantasy about a hero for hire named Eno and his adventures to free the enthralled mine workers of a deranged magician.

Eno, recently home from a quest in Egypt, resumes his interrupted trip to his aging mother. The path takes him through Pan’s domain, and the woodland god has a deadly bone to pick with Eno. On a previous adventure, Eno slayed Pan’s three daughters in self-defense. To make amends with the goat-footed deity, our hero must endure the woodland god’s curse plus do a good deed for Pan’s children.

Slavers ambush and capture Eno, along with a young man named Gwern. A clever ruse turns Eno into a shift captain of a most peculiar mining operation under a dark mountain. Gwern’s enslaved people have labored for generations under the command of an ancient mage who hears voices under the mountain’s rocks. After the workers unearth the rock speaker, Eno then must use his superb strength, wits, and a touch of Pan’s curse to battle the darkest threat yet to Eno’s world.

Dark Mountain is a fun fantasy romp set in the time of Greek gods, ancient Egypt, and medieval villages. C. B Pratt uses a masterful hand to create a vivid fantasy world where the reader smells the manure of the farmyards and feels the tickle of foaming ale on the lips. The conversations with the moody Pan are especially delightful.

Readers who like heroic fantasy told through the eyes of a thoughtful strongman would enjoy Dark Mountain. This is the second of Eno’s enjoyable stories I have read, and I look forward to immersing myself in Eno’s next tale.

This book is funny. I won’t spoil it for you. If you enjoy heroic fantasy then I recommend the Eno the Thracian series. I give this a 5-star rating.

I love all the Eno books. I found this one to be a little darker than the others, and the characters more likely to surprise. I was definitely surprised with the ending, and felt a little sad for Eno. It is definitely a more adult tale than the previous ones, as we see Eno evolving emotionally and longing for more than he has in the past. I am looking forward to the next Eno adventure.
