Book Description

A hunt for raiding barbarians turns upon the hunters.

But far worse is to come for the sleepy villages of northern Ursia and the soldiers who protect the villagers. The Dartague barbarians have had enough of the Ursians encroaching upon their mountainous borders, and the raids are but a feint to draw out soldiers while a much larger attack is in the works.

His squad mates slain, Sergeant Guthrie Hackett finds himself alone in the winter wilderness on the border between his homeland and the nation of barbarians. He discovers the Dartague have a new leader, a wyrd woman who is behind the border assault. Worse yet for the sergeant, he has fallen under the attention of an ice witch, an inhuman creature with secret goals of her own.

Seeking to survive, Hackett tries to make it back to his own countrymen, only to find there is relatively little safety for him anywhere in the northern regions.


"Mage Hunter: Blooded Snow" is the first of a five-part series, and a tale in the author's much broader Ursian Chronicles.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 2 July 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Plot was very mundane, character was very poor. It was very basic and perhaps more for a young child. I found it very much a chore to read the entire book and didn't enjoy it one bit. I couldn't relate to either the character or the very basic story line.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mage Hunter 14 Mar. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A short read, and introduction to the Mage Hunter series.
Very well written. A good storyline with well developed characters and elements of creativity. The author captures the imagination and keeps you hooked with descriptive text. The main character is likeable without heroism. The series seems like it would make an interesting purchase.

3.0 out of 5 stars Quick I've finished 24 July 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was a very quick and easy read. It has just got going and the story ends. I'm glad it was free as I would have felt cheated otherwise. I will read the next instalments if they are at the right price.
