“This book was a pleasant and welcome surprise! In this day and age when Grim Dark Fantasy is all the rage, it’s refreshing for a more fantastical fantasy. There are no brooding or morally grey characters here. The good guys are truly good guys, the bad guys are the bad guys, and the monsters are monsters in the best way. If you want DnD-style fantasy, this book has it all! Also, this is a shorter book and is a swift read! Even better, the sequel is already out! This series is worth checking out!” – @TennesseeReader

About The Author

Jeffrey Speight

The last of a dying breed, a holy warrior must rise up against a growing darkness in Evelium.

The most unlikely of heroes, a lowly itinerant mercenary, Umhra the Peacebreaker is shunned by society for his mongrel half-Orc blood. Desperate to find work for himself and his band of fighters, Umhra agrees to help solve a rash of mysterious disappearances, but uncovers a larger, more insidious plot to overthrow the natural order of Evelium in the process. 

As Umhra journeys into the depths of Telsidor’s Keep to search for the missing people, he confronts an ancient evil and, after suffering a great loss, turns to the god he disavowed for help. 

Compelled to save the kingdom he loves, can he defeat the enemy while protecting his true identity, or must he risk everything?

    Sometimes the right book comes along at the right time.

    The last couple of books I’ve read tended to be on the Grim Dark side of Fantasy. I’m quickly becoming burned out on that genre. Thankfully, Paladin Unbound saved me from the dark side.

    It’s odd that it is now refreshing to have characters that aren’t all morally gray. That is just purely heroic and good. We get that a lot in half-Orc Umhra the Peacebreaker and the rest of the Barrow’s Pact. I loved each character and rooted for them all.

    This is a fast-paced book. Nothing is wasted. The author quickly gets to the point without bogging the story down. The prose won’t win any awards but it isn’t trying to. It quickly tells the tale it intends to but leaves you wanting more. The world-building is fantastic and there are tons left to be told. Magic is magic and thankfully doesn’t need to be fully explained. It’s just there and sometimes, like this time, it works.

    I was pleasantly surprised by this book. It turned out to be the perfect book at the perfect time for me. It’s fun, quick, and full of great characters and heroism (oh, and tons of devilish creatures as well). I’ve never played Dungeons and Dragons before but I felt like this book perfectly represented it.

    I know there is a sequel already out and I can’t wait to get into it. I don’t know how many books the author has planned for this series but I hope it’s many more!
