The Last Bucelarii (Book 1): Blade of the Destroyer isn’t even launched yet, and already it has been getting a pretty good reception.

The reviews are trickling in from the people chosen to receive an Advanced Reader’s Copy of the book before release (in just under two weeks!). Here are a few:

Bucelarii - Copy

Amazon:

5 Stars — “The Hunter is a formidable assassin who carries a blade that hungers for blood. His services can be bought at a price, but the man behind the mask knows very little about his own past. On his latest job, things go wrong and he soon discovers what lies in his past.

The hunter is painted as a cold killer in the beginning but as the story goes on, we see that he does care about the homeless people under his ‘protection.’ It’s not easy to write from the PoV of a killer so this makes him a more sympathetic character. I think it was well written and the world the author has created was well described. I enjoyed the book and would recommend it.” — S.K. Gregory

Ind’Tale

5- Stars– “He has no name. He is known only as The Hunter. Immortal, near impossible to kill and even more impossible to escape once you are his prey, The Hunter’s unique skills can be had for the right price. He has no memory of his life before he walked into the city of Voramis, but the 30 or 40 years he’s lived there have been profitable ones. If not happy, he is at least content with his life until he’s hired to kill a Priest of the Beggar God. Everything he thought he knew about himself changes and he has hard decisions to make. One thing is certain, The Hunter cannot outrun himself.

From the first words on the page this fantasy holds the reader spellbound even after the book is finished. Reminiscent of medieval times, this richly drawn world captivates. Told primarily from The Hunter’s POV, his character is very well-defined even if his past is a mystery. While there are several other minor characters who take up the tale, the shift in POV is smooth and each adds a richness and depth to how the people of Voramis perceive The Hunter. The beginning is fascinating, but it isn’t until The Hunter accepts the job to kill the Beggar Priest that the author really ramps up the excitement. Pages won’t turn fast enough as The Hunter is thrown not one, but several curveballs and how he will react isn’t a given. Root for an assassin? Oh, yes, one must!” — Carol Conley

Goodreads

5 Stars — “Dark battles inside the head of a half-demon emotional and physical. What an unusually captivating story. I found myself not wanting to stop until I dug up everything this book was hiding. As long as you can get over the fact that our main character The Hunter is practically immortal, then you won’t be disappointed with the detailed fighting scenes. He heals fast but with some pain. I found myself on the emotional side reading about the hate and desire for revenge. I was given this story for an honest review and this is mine.” — Fawn

 

The book is doing well on both Amazon and Goodreads (only four and five-star reviews)! I’m shooting for best-seller status, and these are a great start…
