Publisher's Summary

A watchman of the Yenara City guard has gone missing. The culprit could be any of the usual suspects: drug-dealing orcs, mind-controlling elves, uncooperative mages, or humans being typical humans.
It's up to two reluctant partners - Rem, a hungover miscreant who joins the Watch to pay off his bail, and Torval, a maul-wielding dwarf who's highly unimpressed with the untrained and weaponless Rem - to uncover the truth and catch the murderer loose in their fair city.


What the Critics Say

"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 Wyld)
"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)

Well, fine, but now where's the next one!?

I picked up First Watch because I wanted something to take up some time while waiting for a couple other pre-orders to launch. I have well and truly shot myself in the foot.

I enjoyed it from beginning to end. The narration was excellent, the characters interesting, and the setting left me wishing I could spend a little time there myself. And now, here I am, the day after it was released, wondering when the next book in the series is expected (May 2018, in case anyone else is interested.)
