The Fifth Ward, Fiction, Fantasy

THE LORD OF THE RINGS meets LETHAL WEAPON in this action packed fantasy debut - two misfit partners team up to solve a murder in a crime-ridden city filled with orcs, humans, elves, dwarves, and mages.

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

In the cramped quarters of the city of Yenara, humans, orcs, mages, elves and dwarves all jostle for success and survival, while understaffed watch wardens struggle to keep the citizens in line.

Enter Rem. New to the city, he wakes bruised and hungover in the dungeons of the fifth ward. With no money for bail - and seeing no other way out of his cell - Rem jumps at the chance to join the Watch.

Torval, his new partner - a dwarf who's handy with a maul and known for hitting first and asking questions later - is highly unimpressed with the untrained and weaponless Rem. But when Torval's former partner goes missing, the two must learn to work together to uncover the truth and catch a murderer loose in their fair city.

'A buddy cop story in a secondary world setting. What else do you need to know? . . . page-turning entertainment' Pornokitsch

'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 thrilling adventure, it's a buddy action movie masquerading as a fantasy book and I found it to be an awesome read' The Tattooed Book Geek
