Dave Duncan recommends
thumb
Traitor's Blade (2014)
(Greatcoats, book 1)
Sebastien De Castell
"Some books you can't put down. This one won't even let you try; it whirls you along in a wild dance of fights, treachery, and jaw-dropping surprises. If you thought that Alexandre Dumas put his three Musketeers through a lot of trouble, just wait until you see what Mr. de Castell dumps on his three Greatcoats. His fight scenes are amazingly detailed and yet they never lose pace. Sebastien de Castell is a newcomer to the genre, and will be a very popular one if he can continue to produce books of this quality."
thumb
Den of Thieves (2011)
(Ancient Blades, book 1)
David Chandler
"Den of Thieves rollicks... A book I would be happy to have written."
thumb
Mistress of Winter (2007)
(Heartstone Trilogy, book 2)
Giles Carwyn and Todd Fahnestock and Todd Fahnestock
"Carwyn and Fahnestock have taken many of the standard motifs of fantasy and given them new and distinctive twists."
