    I ll start with my biggest complaint there wasn t The only part of the title I saw was Swords For Hire, so I didn t go into this knowing it was actually a collection of shorter stories I ll break this down into parts by the author.First off, the book opens with a short story called Goldseeker and the first five chapters of New World A Frontier Fantasy Novel, by Steven W White Goldseeker is a nice introduction that, before the real story starts, gives you a brief but entertaining rundown of the setting and elements you can expect to find magic, dragons, untamed wilderness, and a race called vivets, who can be poorly summed up as green forest dwelling halflings We also get a sneak peak of an important character from the book proper Keeping in mind that I wasn t aware this was a collection, I can tell you I was maaad when it cut off after five chapters Luckily, the full book was available for free on , and when I finished that, I went ahead and bought the second My biggest, and pretty much only, real complaint is the seemingly pointless inclusion of new words The names for the cardinal directions stand out the most East and West, Eost and Hest respectively, are fairly simple to figure out, but it wasn t until I was looking online for clues that I determined whether Aust or Sept was North and which the other was The clues provided, Sept means seven, and comes from Septentrionalis, the seven stars of Arctos, which are always in that direction And aust comes from Australis, which means a kind of wind, implied, to me at least, that both were North until I learned the Southern Lights were called the Aurora Australis The only Australis I had known previously was the star is located within Ursa Major, which we use as a guide to find the north star Possibly nitpicky, but I d have much preferred to have seen the common use names for directions The only impact this had on the story was my confusion and a break from the story as I spiraled into Google.Fantastic series, I can t wait to read Hopefully there will be .Next up was Weeping Stone and Cowards of the Setting Sun by James Downe, which have a sort of Old West setting but also have crossbows and armor, which are usually medieval oriented More words in these two that make no sense at first but that you pick up through context, but that s not such an issue I m not sure if it s every edition, but the.mobi copy that I read had odd formatting in parts of Weeping Stone that made a few words at a time in a few places appear in grey instead of black, which sent me frantically skipping around trying to figure out if it was just a simple formatting error or if there was some significance to the words that showed up differently I ve concluded that it was a formatting issue, but if I m wrong, please let me know.Again, fantastic stories, and I was mad when they ended because I just want to know about this world It s not even the particular characters the stories follow, it s just the world they take place in that snatched me in and made me not want to leave, but in the end the words ran out.Third we have Plaincrow by Chris Adams Another well written Old West style story, this one a story of loss and vengeance at a price I can t say too much without giving away too much, but definitely worth a read There isn t really much I can say bad about it, either.Last, but definitely not least, we have Way Up North and Into Exile A Teutevar Saga prequel by Derek Alan Siddoway Way Up North was a short but interesting tale of a gold rush and the consequences, and is another definite recommended read Into Exile, while definitely interesting, came off as a cross between Dune and the early mid portion of The Princess Bride It s not exactly like, or even exactly close, to either I did get the feeling that this was not a book intended for those unfamiliar with the series, as I ve no idea what I m supposed to take away from the characters I know one has some future destiny I can only assume will be important and I know their story continues into the next books, but other than pity for refugees and an urge to root for the underdogs, I don t know why I m supposed to care about them I feel like I would care and be invested in the story if I had read the previously published books, but this anthology was the first time I d ever even heard of the Teutevar Saga, though I will most definitely be picking it up next Siddoway, like every other author in this book, left me wanting to know , and luckily, there s two books chronologically later for me to read.Overall definitely worth a read, though there were some minor grammar errors here and there throughout that, while not major, did jar me out of my immersion in the stories and their worlds I m not sure if this is just the edition I read.

    I received this Ebook free for an honest review This book has a touch of Game of Thrones and a touch of Lord of the Rings encased throughout for sure I also had a feel for the Dungeons and Dragons novels and there for a moment I felt it was that part in the Never Ending Story You know the part, in the swamp with the wolf Hmmm anywho, I m not a writer by any means but I am an avid reader and this is just my opinion Down side I sooo wanted to throw a five star on this but. If the first five chapters were removed and replaced with a glossary of new words found throughout the book and a map, it would be a five star read Instead of the What is this master.What is that master ugh Plus side Action lovers unit Read this book The book is great but seriously the farther you get into each story the better it gets My personal side note I ve never read anything ever that has described fear the way it was described in this book It changes them Changes their tread, you see Changes their breathing Changes the kinds of noise they make Probably changes their smell I absolutely loved, loved that It s powerful, I felt it, we ve all felt the tangible grip of fear Well done

    This is an amazing anthology The various authors have cunningly crafted a compelling fantasy world woven with high sword and sorcery fantasy and the American frontier aesthetic.The newly discovered continent of Mira, where magic doesn t work and familiar American folkloric monsters haunt the forests will feel startlingly real and lived in for residents of the North American continent.A breath of fresh air for readers of Fantasy that weary of the same old European tropes.Saddle up your horse and gallop into a world where jackalopes streak across the alien plains and splintercats hunt in the dark forests of Mira.

    My biggest complaint about this book is that it has introduced me to a whole bunch of authors that I will now have to my already crowded reading list I enjoyed all of the stories, and can honestly say that I look forward to reading all of the authors in this compilation I found the format of having several different authors constructing stories around a singular world, with common mythology very enjoyable.

    Swords for Hire is an interesting mix of short stories from a few different authors The stories are all set from the mid evil through early America history times with your basic good vs evil story lines.I received a review copy of this book, otherwise, I doubt I would have read it clear through.
