Review quote

"The structure of the story has the feeling of a classic Dungeons & Dragons campaign as the heroes and supporting cast cross a wasted plateau in search of the tomb; however, the strong characters, setting, and history turn what could be a cookie-cutter adventure into a gripping tale." - "Publisher's Weekly" "Enoughpage-turningmayhem to satethe most avid sword & sorceryfans" Elaine Cunningham, author of"The Thorn Trilogy" "This rollicking tale hooked me from the get-go. Told with zest and humor, this is everything that is good and golden about classic old-school fantasy yarns. It joins my precious bedside shelf of favorite re-reads, 'comfort food' books I turn to again and again. Egil and Nix might not be the safest guys to go adventuring with, but they're sure good company.I'll be waiting for a sequel. Impatiently." Ed Greenwood, bestselling creator of Forgotten Realms ""The Hammer and the Blade"is an instant classic, with its punchy sense of humor, likeable heroes, and fast-paced, creative fight sequences. Killing a demon is just the prologue and after that the real adventure begins." - City Book Review"

About Paul S Kemp

Paul S. Kemp is a lawyer. That is bad. He is also the bestselling author of the Erevis Cale sword and sorcery stories and several Star Wars novels. That is good. It's a little known fact that Paul has maimed eight men and three llamas using only an unsharpened pencil and a stick of Wrigley's gum. Now you know, too. He does not hum show tunes. Paul lives in Michigan with his wife and twin sons."
