White Dwarf Books
(3715 West 10th Ave, Vancouver)
-and there's a door prize!-
I've enjoyed the heck out of the previous two novels his Greatcoats series (Traitor's Blade and Knight's Shadow), so I'm looking forward to this one. They're fun, rollicking, Three Musketeers-inspired stories set in a fantasy world where the Greatcoats — the former wandering police/judiciary force of a now-overthrown and murdered king — try to reunite their realm under a just ruler, while dealing with squabbling, violent lords and their knights who enjoy the chaos just fine, thank you very much. Throw in encounters with "saints" (people of exceptional ability in their chosen pursuit — like swordplay — who possess near-godlike powers), assassins, the occasional monstrous horse, and sometimes the need to eat "the candy", and these heroes have their work cut out for them.
So buckle your swash and come on down to White Dwarf this Thursday evening!
