Early in the story he is confronted by a wyrd woman from the barbarian people that lets him leave after an ambush so he can tell the story of how the barbarians slaughtered the Ursian soldiers. Later in the story, he finds out the real reason why she left him alive.
After making it back out of the mountains Guthrie is confronted on two separate occassions, once by a witch and then by a seer. Both of them have their own impact on his actions throughout the course of the book.
Character development for Guthrie was well written, but was lacking for several of the other characters. Zanbra and Kroff, their official titles Sword and Spear respectively and both members of the kingdom’s religous military called the Guantlet are both in need of some additional character development. A flashback or two into who these two were before joining the Guantlet or possibly some more detailed explanation of their training would have given them more depth. The witch and the seer could have also used some more depth that would have added to the story.
Lord Verkain the King of Kobalos played a vital role in the storyline as he confronted both the wyrd woman Ildra along with Guthrie and his companions Zanbra and Kroff.
Guthrie, Zanbra, and Kroff spend the last quarter of the book hunting the remaining wyrd women down and doing battle with them and their barbarian warriors.
If you like a book with a few twists and a solid storyline then the Mage Hunter Omnibus will make a good solid read for you.
The book was written as five distinct parts, which are all published individually. To get a good feel for the author’s writing style, I would suggest purchasing Mage Hunter: Blooded Snow (the first of five parts) as a free download from Amazon. If the writers style suits your reading preferences at that point, just jump in and buy the Omnibus which has all five parts and is cheaper than buying each part individually. (Blooded Snow, Sundered Shields, Bared Blades, Hammered Iron, Changeless Fate).
The book, for the most part, is technically sound. The storyline and plot are consistent and continue along at a relative pace. There were few technical errors in spelling, grammar, tense, and double words. Most of these technical errors were in the last chapter of each of the five parts of the book. Although the errors were present, they only caused minimal distraction to reading and were easily overcome by reading the passage with the error a second time.
