Synopsis:

Lynx is wandering and comes into a small town. He accidentally kills an employee of the local warlord. He is then made Reeve by an enterprising old woman and has to survive the wrath of Therien, the man he has bucked.

After killing half of Therien’s crew, Lynx proposes a duel of mage pistols at dawn and Therien agrees, knowing that if he kills Lynx, he will then be the legitimate authority in the town. Lynx simply snipes him and heads out of town.

 

My Thoughts:

This was a story of Lynx before he joined up with the Cards. Honestly, I was expecting a prequel novella to book 3, much like Honour Under Moonlight leads up to Princess of Blood. Seeing what Lynx dealt with as an ex-Hanese soldier wandering around was enlightening and it definitely made him a slighter fuller figure (ha, yes, that is a pun on him being fat).

Knowing Lynx from the previous books and novella, I suspected that the ending would go the way it did. Lynx is pragmatic until it runs counter to his set of morals. Sniping a warlord who had used his underlings to try to kill him presented no moral qualms for Lynx.

★★★★☆

  3. I noticed that I am a fan of those short novellas, that play between or before books of a series. Only if I like the series though, of course 😉 I liked Lynx so if I decide to continue with the series, I will sneak that in as well

      This is the first time I’m reading the little stories between novels. McClellan is the “man” when I think of people who do this, but I didn’t like his stuff nearly enough for me to want to read little stories 🙂

  4. Pretty cool to see you enjoy everything the author dishes out. So far.

      Yeah, I’m really liking this. Which makes what I think is going to happen all that more sucky. But I’m refusing to worry about it right now. Today has enough troubles of its own 😀
