The Fell Sword by Miles Cameron
The Fell Sword by Miles Cameron
I love entering Miles Cameron's fantasy world a medieval-ish place packed with with magic and monsters; and all totally believable.

The hunt for the killer takes the reader from the drug-blasted ghettoes of DC, via the covert palaces of US power to the lawless badlands north of the Caucasus and unveils a secret all the more horrifying for it's absolute plausibility.
