Crewe Luke5.0 out of 5 stars (Amazon)
Readers who read and love this genre know the elements that go into making

Since the Golden Age of Sword and Sorcery in the late 70s and early 80s, it’s a rare find indeed when a new novel comes along encapsulating exactly what the genre is about. Readers who read and love this genre know the elements that go into making it so great; and the author of The Nameless Dwarf gets it.
Honestly, I didn’t know what to expect, delving into independent fantasy as at act of desperation, as I have ransacked all my local used bookstores unearthing classic works by Howard, Carter, DeCamp, Leiber, Moorcock, etc. Are there no new writers of sword and sorcery?
Well, apparently there are. And after having read this book, there is hope for the future of this rare and precious genre.
In short, this book was a wonderfully entertaining and a surprisingly well- written and well-plotted return to the days of yesteryear, when justice could be dispensed at the edge of an Axe. Volume 2 is next on my to-read list.
