The Lord of Frake’s Peak

I just finished The Lord of Frake’s Peak by Lee Carlon. It is a fantastic story, and clearly the best of The Bastard Cadre series released to date.

Although this is book four of the series, I believe this story could be enjoyed by both newcomers to the series as well as those who have read the prior books. I expected this story to pick up where the third book ended. It did not. Instead it served more as a prequel to the other stories.

I enjoyed following the story of Vincent d’Rhyne. I could sympathize with his losses and appreciate the difficulty of the choices he had to make. Fahlim, a self-indulgent immortal who often offered advice whether needed or not, offset Vincent’s more serious nature, and I laughed a few times at some of his comments.

I would definitely pick up the next book in the series.

What I’m Reading List

I try to read at least one new novel each week, and normally I like to rotate through genres.  If I read fantasy this week, I might read sci-fi, horror or mystery next week.  Today I updated my What I’m Reading List and noticed that Jonathan Moeller has taken it over.

As a writer he produces new content like a machine. Instead of anxiously waiting for his next book, I seem to be always racing to catch up with his backlog.  Once I finish Ghost in the Mask, I’m going to switch to something else for a while, but I know I’ll be back soon. I have at least seven more stories on my Kindle that I haven’t read and he is wrapping up another in the Ghost series.  I’m only going to be further behind.

I don’t have a problem with that at all.


Awesome, Heroic Fantasy Stories
