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 seriesIn the cramped quarters of the city of Yenara, humans, orcs, mages, elves and dwarves all jostle for success and survival, while understaffed watch wardens struggle to keep the citizens in line. Enter Rem. New to the city, he wakes bruised and hungover in the dungeons of the fifth ward. With no money for bail - and seeing no other way out of his cell - Rem jumps at the chance to join the Watch.Torval, his new partner - a dwarf who's handy with a maul and known for hitting first and asking questions later - is highly unimpressed with the untrained and weaponless Rem. But when Torval's former partner goes missing, the two must learn to work together to uncover the truth and catch a murderer loose in their fair city.show more

Review quote

I could have read this story for eternity, the characters and world building are that good . . . Every scene is brought to life with blazing imagery that is tied to constant movement. The characterization is superb and continues to surprise as events unfold -- KOEUR'S BOOK REVIEWS First Watch is great fun. The characters are engaging, the plot whips along at a good pace and there is bucket loads of potential for this to develop into a rather wonderful ongoing series -- THE ELOQUENT PAGE 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 brilliant premise, wonderfully told. A city that breathes, and heroes you can't help but root for -- Nicholas Eames, author of KINGS OF THE WYLDshow more
