By Nicholas Eames
Paperback, 512 pages
Tam works at a local pub, but dreams of living a life of adventure like the mercenaries she serves. Even her uncle is part of a band. But her father, an ex-merc, refuses to let Tam go – he’s already lost her mother and strict as he seems, he won’t lose his daughter too. That all changes when Bloody Rose, infamous daughter of Golden Gabe, and her crew come to Tam’s pub looking for a bard. Tam gets her wish for adventure, but realizes it may come at the cost of her life.
It took me forever to get started on this review because I’ve been in a bit of a funk and once again Eames has wowed me and I want to do this book some justice, instead of my typical scream-in-your-face-that-you-should-read-this-book-immediately thing.
