Hammers in the Wind (The Northern Crusade) (Volume 1)

Chaos has come to the northern kingdom of Delranan. King Badron’s house is invaded; his son murdered and his daughter kidnapped. Badron’s desire for revenge pushes the north into a long anticipated war. Confident of neighboring Rogscroft’s involvement in the attack, Badron orders his feared Wolfsreik, an army without equal, to attack and destroy his enemies. The ship The Sea Wolf returns to Delranan during the night of the attack and is quickly hired to hunt down and return the princess: dead or alive. Mercenaries and sell swords answer his call; none stranger than the seemingly feeble old Anienam Keiss, a man claiming to be the last living wizard and hiding the failures from a dark past and the mysterious warrior woman from the deep southern jungles: Rekka Jel. She comes with a dire warning. A dread evil has awakened and threatens to consume Malweir in a wave of fury. It begins in Delranan.

  1. An epic fantasy quest. I have just finished reading “Hammers in the Wind” and was quite impressed by it. I must admit when I first began reading it, there were so many characters that I despaired at ever being able to tell them apart. But after a few chapters, Mr. Freed’s skill as a storyteller began to emerge and I came to know each of the characters as an individual and began to get wrapped up in their adventures and perils. 

  2. Awesome The book takes you back to the time of ancient kings and their ways. The book has it all from a revengeful king looking for his daughter and wizards, mysterious warrior woman helping the king in the outset of dark lords threatening to destroy Malweir. The story runs in a fast pace from the first page and it holds your interest. The author Christian W. Freed did a great job in depicting the battle scenes, his military experience came in handy, I guess. He has done justice to all the characters…
