Fantasy needs a new hero. Meet Gallow - Truesword, Griefbringer and trouble for anyone who crosses him.
Nathan Hawke is a British writer of fantasy fiction. He has worked variously in the City, as a consultant to the police and to the services. He has travelled in the far east, worked for a time in Las Vegas, was briefly involved in video game design, and once skied off a mountain under a parachute for a bet. His current ambitions include rafting the Colorado River and walking the Milford Track. The Gallow series are his first novels.
A great mix of bloodied axes and brave warriors, an honest hero and the war that gets in his way.
Shades of David Gemmell... It's about time someone good took up the torch for heroic fantasy. Inspiring characters, great plot and culture. I read this in one session, utterly absorbed
Entertaining, sometimes moving and always eminently readable. Highly recommended
