Red Axe, Black Sun
Recommended for Sword & Sorcery fans!
A breathtaking fantasy story of an ancient northern world with mystic places and gritty anti-hero type characters, including a complicated love story. Good writing, fun and easy to read with decent lore.
“Wow! What a wild rollicking ride. Michael Karner has created a bleak, harsh and haunted world. I felt like I was back reading one of my old sword and sorcery tales. There is everything you could want here. Magic, warriors from exotic backgrounds, rebel’s fighting for survival, prophesy, death cults, tangled love and great action sequences. Wonderful characters, great atmosphere, intrigue and twists. I am looking forward to the next book. 4 out of 5 Stars.” – Leanne Ellis from Bloody Cake News
“One action filled scene after another in a merciless world.” - Phil Witvliet from Grimdark Reader
“Go give Mr Karner your money, trust me, he keeps at it, in a few years you will be hunting his books anyway, avoid the rush.” - Kevin King
