Cowl works flawlessly as the doomed, enigmatic, and maimed monster-man cursed to destroy all products of "delving"(metalwork) because in the world of Arn metals are imbued with magical powers and magic is forbidden. In this novella, Cowl's mission is to accompany Vareena, an untried swordswoman who is the scion of a once great House to the now abandoned hereditary home. The reason for her house's fall from grace happened generations ago when her family's ancestral castle was taken over by a delving-demon. Now, with Cowl, enemy of all delving at her side, Vareeena is determined to free her home of this supernatural menace.
Heritage does a great job of moving the story along without seeming hurried and revealing new information about Cowl and the world in a timely and intriguing manner without the dreaded info-dumps. Heritage also has a fine pen for picturesque prose, which will make the read especially enjoyable for those who prefer slightly more vivid and sophisticated writing, though he never comes close to drifting into purple prose.
And perhaps, in the finest accolade I can give Heritage, Flesh Golem inspired me to immediately buy the Cowl Omnibus so I can continue reading tales in the world of Arn.
