Eddie LaCrosse, swordsman-for-hire, returns to his past in his latest adventure. Nearly 20 years ago, Eddie tried to save a man from a bear attack and wound up the guardian of the baby girl the man was trying to protect. Eddie, being too young to be a daddy, gave the girl to a kindly family. Now, back in that remote area, Eddie decides to look up the girl. And wouldn’t you know? He finds himself embroiled in a brewing war between a couple of kings, not to mention the evil plans of a sorceress—and that’s just for starters. Of all the clever things Bledsoe does with his LaCrosse novels, the cleverest is to set the stories in an unspecified era on an alternate version of Earth, thus allowing him to do whatever he wants without worrying about history. The blending of medieval-fantasy and private-eye tropes—Eddie’s fee is “twenty-five gold pieces a day plus expenses”—proves thoroughly entertaining for fans of both genres. Think of it as Rockford Files with some swords and sorcery. --David Pitt

There's just the right amount of humor in the LaCrosse novels. Bledsoe maintains a great balance of humor, style and mixed-genre elements and juggles them in a way that never detracts from the story itself, something that's tough to do. Many writers to attempt this tend to push too hard to in one direction with a wink in their eye at the reader which ultimately causes the story to suffer, Bledsoe never does this.
Highly recommended. I'm looking forward to reading what Eddie's going to do next.
And that wasn't the most amusing line in the book.
The whole series is a playful but hard edged detective series. Magic is used sparingly and practicality abounds.
If you enjoy the PI Garrett series then you MUST BEGIN READING THIS SERIES!!!
I wish I could say more good things without gushing.
