Publisher's Summary

Lynx is a mercenary with a sense of honour - a dying breed in the Riven Kingdom. Failed by the nation he served and weary of the skirmishes that plague the continent's principalities, he walks the land in search of purpose. He wants for little, so bodyguard work keeps his belly full and his mage-gun loaded. It might never bring a man fame or wealth, but he's not forced to rely on others or kill without cause.
Little could compel Lynx to join a mercenary company, but he won't turn his back on a kidnapped girl. At least the job seems simple enough: the mercenaries are less stupid and vicious than most he's met over the years. So long as there are no surprises or hidden agendas along the way, it should work out fine.

A great listen!

Would you consider the audio edition of Stranger of Tempest to be better than the print version?

Yes, but then, I am a blind person.

What other book might you compare Stranger of Tempest to, and why?

Any of the works of Joe Abercrombie. The combination of adventure, character and banter is not dissimilar.

Which character – as performed by Jay Villiers – was your favourite?


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Yes. The conversation between Links and the prison governor who freed him.

Any additional comments?

Jay Villiers narration really deserves a mention. He handles a disparate and distinctive group of characters and narrative with deceptive ease.
