Format: Paperback
Jens Altmann has crafted a rarity in this genre: a sword-and-scorcery adventure that takes off at breakneck speed from the first page all the way to the last--without skipping any of the atmospheric details that make you want to plunge all that much deeper into the world of Arachosia and all the surrounding provinces.

Mr. Altmann instinctively knows how much to tell, and how much to tease. We're given a glimpse of a rich universe, full of gods and demons, great scorcerers, kings, queens, princesses, guilds and many, many other mysteries that the reader can only hope to explore the next time Mr. Altmann chooses to return to this fertile ground.

Until Mr. Altmann returns to Arachosia, I will have to satisfy myself with my own tales of draconim, garya, nazim, mystical tattoos and the redemption of would-be heroes. To me, that is the perfect recipe for a great story: one that leaves the reader plenty of room to imagine the finer details, to tell more stories in a universe with plenty of room left for tales.

Format: Paperback
Jens H. Altmann's key strength is his characterization. Where some fantasy tales have cardboard cutouts servicing a clockwork plot, Altmann's keen grasp of human nature creates a more organic storytelling experience that doesn't fail to captivate.

"Ravager" is a tale of unlikely allies, and a backdrop of mistrust, paranoia and intractable differences not common in the genre, and yet the optimism of those who struggle on heroically. As someone whom has fallen out of the genre in the past, this was a welcome change that feels like a breath of fresh air.

I look forward to more!
