12-year-old Fezariu thought his mother died when he was little, but when his beloved stepfather dies the boy discovers she is alive and well - and working at the most famous brothel in all of Elenchera. When she cruelly rejects him it's more than he can bear, and he runs away to join a band of ruthless soldiers for hire. The Merelax Mercenaries will fight for anyone who can pay them, no matter the justice of the cause. Fezariu grows up among the soldiers and becomes one of them. He thinks his time with the mercenaries has hardened him. But a campaign in his old home town pushes him too far, and he discovers what really happened to his mother. Maybe there are some things money shouldn't buy... and maybe it's time Fezariu took his revenge.
The first thing I want to say is how drawn into this story I was from the start. It seemed so real to me, like it had really happened before. I couldn't get enough of this book and was on pins and needles every time I turned the page to see what was going to happen next.
I love the way in which David M. Brown writes this book and tells this story. Loved the way he developed the characters through the story it wasn't to fast with out details like some Fantasy stories I've read lately, it was perfectly paced, letting the characters grow naturally.
This book is filled with great emotion. I really enjoyed reading about each character and seeing how they went through each change in their life. The writing in this book was perfectly balanced with descriptions and plot. I really connected with the characters, Alycea, for example was my favorite character.
I would defiantly recommend this book to any fantasy lover. Which is most of my friends. So please go read this one, you wont regret it!
