I didn't know what to expect when I decided to read this; which I did because basically I wanted to read something "Game of Thrones-ish" and I had it on my Kindle. Anyway, what can I say? Craig Saunders has created a great read that takes the reader with him as he relates the story of Tarn, the hero and the Outlaw King in the title. It's mellow fantasy, nothing too alienating, with a smudge of sci fi thrown in to enhance the story, and it works beautifully. I loved this book. There are some editing issues but I looked over them and they definitely did not take anything from the story. Highly, highly recommended. I started Book 2 straight away and I bought book 3 on the strength of this one.
Well done Mr. Saunders, I applaud your story telling prowess. Consider me a fan.
