Good morning and welcome to this week’s edition of In the Books, featuring Trading Knives: Prequel Short Story #1 to The Bow of Hart Saga by P.H. Solomon.
About the Book: Corgren makes a living as a prize knife-fighter in the rough fighting rings along the Hart river. When a mysterious stranger offers him power to gain revenge on his enemies for his service, Corgren dismisses it as a con. But when the stakes are high against an opponent as skilled as himself, will Corgren accept offer? This short story is a prequel to The Bow of Destiny, Book 1 of The Bow of Hart Saga and contains a sample chapter from the upcoming novel.
My Review: The biggest problem with short stories is it’s hard for me to do a review without any spoilers, so I hope you don’t mind if I allow the story to keep some secrets.
Though this is a short read, it’s packed with plenty of action and intrigue that made the story fly by. I really enjoyed the tough no-nonsense Corgren as he tried to figure out what his brother is planning as well as the mysterious stranger.
As I mentioned, the intrigue was at the heart of the story and my desire to learn more about this new world kept me turning pages. I’m not ashamed to say this ended way too soon and I can’t wait to read the other short and novel when it comes out.
