Editorial Reviews


Fun, energetic and strongly recommended. Fantasy Book Critic
This first book hooked me and I've now read all that are currently available and hope for more. -
Goodreads reviewer
The characterization of Sumto is similar to Sir Apropos of Nothing by David Drake - Amazon review.
Similar in style to Steven Brust's "Jhereg" series - B&N review.

From the Author

Characters will sometimes take over a story. Sumto took over this one. It took him about ten pages to do it.

What I originally intended was a series of fantasy murder mysteries. A kind of Fantasy Private Detective story. All the action would be in the city. A detective who was more or less welcome in all walks of society, perpetually down on his luck due to gambling and booze issues, would none-the-less solve the crime.

Now, does that sound anything like Sumto at all? Not a bit of it. As soon as he started meeting and interacting with people, the story changed.

I hesitated. I had a choice to make. Start again or roll with it.

I decided I wanted to know where the story would go if I just let Sumto tell me what happened next.

Four books later, and he is still telling me what happened next. I guess he will keep telling me until the end.

Every now and again I'll try and plan ahead. Every now and again I will set a target to aim for or attempt to plot the next book. Wasted effort, every time.

I've no idea where this story goes. Every time I think I do, Sumto will surprise me and all the plotting and planning goes out of the window, sometimes in a single line that I can't make myself delete - because Sumto says that's what happened.
