Summary

"I didn't come here to sell my soul. I came here to buy it back."  

Once dubbed "The Deadliest Man Alive", Jarrod Torrealday is a former Olympic saber hopeful and medieval-weapons expert banned from competition for killing another fencer in a duel. Despondent, volatile, alcoholic, yet still one of the greatest swordsmen alive, he now works for third-rate fantasy films as a technical consultant and stuntman. 

When Jarrod accepts the gig of a lifetime from a sorcerer looking for a hero, he finds himself facing an invading army in a world inhabited by creatures from Earth's mythical past. He soon learns that the enemy mastermind is also from Earth and has laid the foundations for a new kind of war. 

Contains mature themes.

engrossing tail of swords and sorcery

Troy Duran delivers another fantastic telling of an epic tale. the author obviously did a lot of homework to be factually accurate with his descriptions. A well thought out world and characters too.

A great first installment... if a touch short.

This story was a refreshing twist on the standard trope about the guy who goes back in time and applies his modern knowledge to affect change in a tumultuous world. It was nice that the whole plot didn’t revolve solely around the MC’s future-based knowledge, which is the more typical move of most authors in this genre.

The scope of the plot in the this book felt a little underdone due to the ending, but that’s certainly not a reason to miss out on this engrossing story.

The editing was seamless and the performance of the narrator was superb. There were minor things that kept me from giving a 5 star review, but in order to hit that mark a book really has to knock me off my feet.

Definitely worth the credit though... I’m looking forward to the next installment.
