Summary

Among the scattered fringe cities bordering the Cienbal desert, the true name of the Monster of Karth is spoken only in whispers...RAZ I'SYUL ARRO. A sellsword of the utmost caliber, Raz is a killer of paramount skill and highest regard. Towering tall even amongst the atherian, he is the only of his kind to live free in the "civilized" confines of mankind's varied cultures. He has no need of loyalties, his sole affections pledged to the gold crowns that buy his time and skills.

Wed to his blades, Raz's only friends are the Moon and Her Stars and the shadows they bring with the night. But Raz was not born to the mercenary's way, to the butchery and battle of day-by-day survival.

Raz, like a sword, was hammered from steel and fire and ashy smoke, forged on the ruins of an old life. And Raz knows who he owes this new path to, this carved way of blood and iron. The Monster of Karth, after all, would never forget who gave him that name. And some debts can't be paid in gold....

Awesomely Good

Damn that was fantastic and a beautifully written Dark Fantasy novel, awesome worldbuilding, the characters are brilliant, and the author shows us a horrible side of humanity, that are easily led to hate and be very prejudice against being's who are different to them, I love when authors use a protagonist who is not human, you will love the world the author has created for us readers to to get lost in for awhile, the book is focused on the journey and personal growth of a very unique Dragon humanoid character called Raz, a sort of antihero, he earns a living being a mercenary, hunting all sinister characters, rapists, slavers and murderers, there are also internal and external conflicts involved that add depth to this cracking story, and this is why this book is so good, It’s just not about Raz’s ferocious fighting skills, it’s about his inner struggles too, absolutle great read, can't wait to check out the rest of the books in the series, the narration by Mikael Naramore is excellent, I highly recommend..😁🐲⚔
