Description

'A brilliant premise, wonderfully told. A city that breathes, and heroes you can't help but root for' Nicholas Eames on The Fifth Ward: First Watch

Humans, orcs, mages, elves and dwarves all jostle for success and survival in the cramped quarters of the city of Yenara, while understaffed Watch Wardens struggle to keep its citizens in line.

In the most dangerous district in the city, Rem and Torval have been perfecting their good cop, bad cop routine. But when a perplexing case of arson leads to a series of gruesome murders, the two partners must challenge their own assumptions and loyalties if they are to wrest justice from the chaos and keep their ward from tearing itself apart.

praise for The Fifth Ward:

'A buddy cop story in a secondary world setting. What else do you need to know? . . . page-turning entertainment' Pornokitsch

'A glorious tour through fantasy's seamier side. A wilder ride than Middle Earth, and you'll love every minute of it!' Jon Hollins, author of the Dragon Lords series

'A thrilling adventure, it's a buddy action movie masquerading as a fantasy book and I found it to be an awesome read' The Tattooed Book Geek
