Welcome to Steelhaven.....
An unbalanced veteran, a disillusioned assassin, a hapless apprentice, a drunken swindler, a desperate thief...during times of crisis, you don't get to choose your heroes.
Under the reign of King Cael the Uniter, this vast cityport on the southern coast has for years been a symbol of strength, maintaining an uneasy peace throughout the Free States. But now a long shadow hangs over the city, in the form of the dread Elharim warlord, Amon Tugha. When his herald infiltrates the city, looking to exploit its dangerous criminal underworld, and a terrible dark magick that has long been buried once again begins to rise, it could be the beginning of the end.

This book could have gone wrong so easily. Take the topics of several favourite fantasy novels, mix it up a little and you could get this book. What saves it from being a pastiche is the really great character and world building and the humour. Some of the lines had me sniggering aloud. There are multiple POVs but, unusually for me, I liked each one although I did favour a few. There is clearly a lot more to come and I really look forward to the next one. Highly recommended.
