While the characters and stories are interesting, I have a hard time agreeing with the morals of them, especially the main character - the pointless murder without much care just jars. And I like everything else of Garth Nix's that I've read! But I'm not keen to read more about these guys.

By EA Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 24 Feb. 2014
Format: Hardcover
If there's one thing you can expect from Garth Nix, it's fantasy that doesn't follow the usual cliches. After all, who else writes about a god-slaying mercenary and his sorcerous puppet sidekick?

That is the basic description of "Sir Hereward and Mister Fitz: Three Adventures," short stories set in a high fantasy world of guns, godlets and magic. This is darker material than most of Nix's other works, but it still has that wicked sense of humor and innovative style -- and it leaves you craving more stories of the godlet-killing duo.

Sir Hereward is a wandering mercenary, accompanied by a sorcerous puppet that helps him in his work. But he's no ordinary man, and Mr. Fitz is no ordinary puppet -- the two of them are always in search of small-scale godlets that are "proscribed" as being harmful to the world.First the two arrive in the city of Shûme, presenting themselves to the local military as basic mercenaries. Hereward quickly offends a female soldier and ends up dragged into a duel, but it won't stop them from fulfilling their mission.

Then they join a pirate crew with the promise of a hidden treasure past the Sea Gate of the Scholar-Pirates of Sarsköe -- which is complicated by a beautiful, cursed pirate queen, who plans to kill Hereward if he is lying to her. Finally, a visit to a benevolent godlet's hospice goes horribly wrong when Hereward is approached by a malevolent being in disguise.

Most of Garth Nix's fiction is aimed at teenagers and kids, but "Sir Hereward and Mister Fitz" is aimed at a more adult crowd -- lots of bloody violence, implied sex and a character who also happens to be a cannibal.

You may only get three short/medium tales, but you do get two great characters. My only regret, is that there isn't more to read.

These stories are humorous and easy to read. The characters work well together and you get a good sense of them even in these short stories.
