Featured Book - Dead Man Riding East
‘Dead Man Riding East’
It’s surprising the things you accumulate in your luggage when travelling. Benor Dorfinngil inadvertently visited interesting foreign parts and met strange and exotic people, not all of whom tried to kill him. But in the course of his travels he acquired the senior concubine of the Prince of Talan (or perhaps she acquired him?) and at that point life got far more complicated.
‘Dead Man Riding East’ is an action packed fantasy adventure set in the ‘Land of the Three Seas’ and was voted second in the Fantasy category of The Best Indie Books of 2012. It follows the adventures of Benor, whom readers first met in ‘Swords for a Dead Lady’. These adventures include the fall of dynasties, a love story with more action than ’50 shades’ (where I’ve been told no one gets killed) and the dangers innate within the fashion industry.
Here is what Ignite, Amazon Top 500 reviewer had to say.
In this new adventure in the `Swords' series, we again follow Benor and watch and feel as though we take part in his hectic life. He both pursues and is pursued when he `liberates' a prince's concubine (and keeps her!) and the prince, naturally, doesn't want to let the matter rest. As well as being an excellent fighter, one of his companions on the journey is a master of the haute couture trade and manages to combine these two rather successfully.
Jim Webster has created a credible fantasy world here, populated by its own races, both rivals and allies, and with an intriguing group of wild creatures which you can almost taste when they are described as food species! There is a good deal of action in this book but also some softer, `Ahhh!' moments which I won't describe for fear of spoiling the story. Needless to say, he has once again used his own writing style to give us some wonderfully memorable phrases. I like his style and his gentle humour.
