Overkill by Steven Shrewsbury review

Overkill by Steven Shrewsbury is free on amazon today and tomorrow be sure to get a copy.

Steven Shrewsbury has created with Gorias La Gaul a larger than life character. A prequel to Thrall we get to enjoy more of Gorias and his most excellent adventures, be they bedding endless ladies or killing the bad guys in the most spectacular of fashion.

This story is great fun with many laughs, endless action and fantastically well written battle scenes. I found myself cheering Gorias on wanting to know how it ended and gaping in shock that a 700 + year old man had the stamina of a 19 year old. Go Gorias.

Gorias is a character to get to know. One who will charm the pants right off you, or slice them off as the case may be.

This is a great read for those who enjoy action, adventure, sword fighting and a great deal of humor in a story. One to add to the TBR list, I’m already looking forward to the next one in the series.

Deliverance will come… A great flood once wiped clean the earth, destroying everything upon it. Before the deluge, in a time now forgotten, the world was a place of warriors and witches, conflicts between kingdoms, and, until their extermination, dragons. In this world, men may live centuries, fallen angels have begotten terrifying spawn, and sometimes, the best hope can be found in a brothel.

In the land of Transalpina, a new religion spreads, and important men are dying mysteriously, slain by what can only be the fire of dragon breath. Summoned by the Queen Garnet, the legendary warrior Gorias La Gaul returns to the place where he once saved the queen’s young granddaughter from treachery and enslavement. The Princess Nykia is gone, and soon others may try to claim the throne. The queen has little choice but to turn to the only man who ever told her no.

With the aid of one of the queen’s elite guard, the battle maiden Alena, and the young palace servant Orsen, the old mercenary will face pirates and traitors, monsters and foul magic in the quest to find the missing heir and learn the truth behind the disconcerting murders. Deliverance will come for Gorias La Gaul, but for now there are women to love, secrets to discover, and killing that needs doing.
