Befel, Erik's brother, and Bryon, his cousin, can't think of anything worse than farming for the rest of their lives. They want to be heroes. They want fame and fortune. They want to leave their families and go east, to the country of Golgolithul, where they are sure to find easy wealth and great adventure.
But when these three young men leave their farmstead, they quickly discover the world is not so simple, not so easy. Most fortune is laden with treachery, fame must be earned with blood, and adventures are rarely grand. Ideas of grandeur are crushed and the road east is hard. To get there, these men must ultimately sell their swords and become friends with thieves, dwarves, soldiers, and mercenaries well past their prime. They battle a band of ruthless slavers, slip past assassins, and experience the deadly consequences of black magic.
Will Erik ever be able to return to the simple life? Will he unwittingly become famous, become rich, become a hero? Or will he even survive?

The narrator is odd
I like the story and while it's s bit of a mess flicking between people and times without any information or character building what so ever, it doesn't bother me any where as much as the narrator does.
He is well and clearly spoken, but lacks emotion and is always pausing mid sentence - and I can't tell what character is actually talking because he does most of them in the same monotone voice. He has little to no vocal inflections for the characters and his cadences are a mess.
Such a shame for what could be a decent book that is ruined by the narrator.
