This prequel sets the stage for the following books, and explains how he received the map that sets him on this quest of discovery. Never has a wicked sense of humor, as well as a sense of honor. I liked the part in the bar, when the drunk disturbs him and causes him to be kicked out. Never asked him where he lives, so he could rob him as compensation for his rudeness. Never didn't rob him blind, and actually left something very valuable, monetary and sentimental to the drunk. Most thieves wouldn't care, but Never is not out to make money or treasure in his quests, just answers...
Its a great place to start the series, and well worth the time to read.
But he is willing to do everything he can to find out notwithstanding the fact that so far he could accomplish very little.
He is getting desperate but just maybe there is a clue to be found in the Amber Isle. One problem though, common lore has it this isle is just a myth. Or is it?
This prequel to a series of novellas featuring the fast talking rogue, Never, is the start to a great action adventure full of surprises and numerous escapades to delight even the most jaundiced palate. I loved the character of Never, the almost tangible atmosphere of mystery and the medieval setting.
Never, what a name, is a bit of a rogue, a mercenary, a thief, and a survivor. He bears a 'curse' or a gift depending on your point of view. His own blood. It has saved his life, it has also taken lives that he didn't intend to take. No control but he is searching for reasons, explanations, the truth about why he is and who he is.
I have not been disappointed with anything I've read. This author is amazing.
Some things just didn't seem to flow. Why did this one lady help him escape the castle? One day later, he's in prison again, but he's not recognized? I guess it's not the same as the dungeons. Wouldn't the guards be looking for him? Why does his curse sometimes not work?
Who are these foreigners, and why did they attack the whole city? It didn't feel like a city that had just been invaded. It still had people wandering around. Were there demands? Beheadings?
Despite some holes in the plot, "Never" is a well written story that moves along at a steady rate. I came to root for Never in the short time that I spent with him. I do want to read more of his adventures, but I really want to understand the curse. What is it? What does it do? Where did it come from?

Der Held mit dem ungewöhnlichen Namen Never sucht nach Hinweisen zu seiner Herkunft und seinem richtigen Namen. In dieser Geschichte landet er im Gefängnis und bricht wieder aus, er wird verfolgt und besteht blutige Kämpfe. Eine besondere verfluchte Eigenschaft seines Blutes spielt eine wichtige Rolle. Verschiedene alte Waffen kommen zum Einsatz, Never selbst kämpft am liebsten mit Messern.
Never hat einen besonderen Humor in brenzligen Situationen. Seine bissigen Bemerkungen sind manchmal weise: "Everybody dies from something" (Jeder stirbt an irgendwas.) - Mich bringt das immer wieder zum Lachen.
Die 55 Seiten bringen einige Stunden Spaß und Spannung, eine schöne Ablenkung für kleines Geld.
Ich empfehle dieses Buch, es ist sehr lesenswert auch oder gerade wenn man die Serie noch nicht kennt!
