Book Description

The latest novel in the well-reviewed action adventure fantasy series, set in an Ancient World where the mythology, monsters and gods are real, featuring Eno the Thracian.

In the new adventure, Eno sets off to find the truth about himself and his possible descent from the gods themselves. Instead he becomes involved with a race of people kidnapped from their homeland, set to toil endlessly by the will of a mad philosopher. Facing his own fears and doubts and the curse of the Great God Pan, Eno also finds a woman worthy of his love, danger around every curve, and mushrooms...lots and lots of mushrooms. Meanwhile, a hidden menace from long, long ago threatens the civilized world and only Eno the Thracian, Hero for Hire, can stop the inevitable destruction.


Editorial Reviews

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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Eno Grows Up. Excellent Read. March 22, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Third Book of Eno the Thracian, Hero for Hire June 21, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Eno Gets Some Action June 20, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
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.
