Hayes is able to give readers a gutter-angle view of his world and ease them into the larger narrative concerns. He has a flair for eliciting the full squalor, speed and violence of these characters lives. Few who finish this first volume will hesitate about going on to the next. [Hayes is] an author who may command a large genre following very soon. "Kirkus Reviews""
About the Author
Having served in a hundred different offices as a keyboard monkey, Rob J. Hayes finally decided to follow his lifelong passion of daydreaming. After writing a small horde's worth of short stories (many of which can be found on his website), he released his debut trilogy "The Ties that Bind" in 2013 as an indie publication and followed it up with the standalone release The Northern Sunrise in 2014.
Having now signed a deal with Ragnarok to bring "The Ties that Bind" to traditional paper publication Rob is furiously working away at a follow-up series entitled Best Laid Plans set in the same world.
When not writing Rob is usually found either card gaming, computer gaming, board gaming, dice gaming, airsoft gaming, or pretending to be a Viking.
