Publishers Description: A Lady is dead. Her noble line ended. And the King’s Reaper has come to reclaim her land and her home. In the marches of Aedaron, only one thing is for certain. All keeps of the old world must fall.

Review: Elinor is an orphan whom went to school with rich kids to become a Reaper in the Kings army. A reaper tears down old castles because bandits and raiders would take up residence but a new Lord claims the land as his own.  Really? So after a particular right is performed, the new Lord takes ownership. How does this make sense as a main part of the story line? There are huge “Dune” like worms that I hope will fit into the puzzle with subsequent novellas, but which make no sense at this time.

This was a short novella and as a consequence is hard to rate. Good world building for the limited breadth of the novella coupled with poor character development due to the length.

  1. Well, at least the covers looks amazing!

  2. Yes they are! The Broken Banners cover is even better.
