Jacob Peppers – A Sellsword’s Resolve

War isn’t coming. It’s here.

Aaron and his companions prevented the assassination of a queen, but in doing so, they angered an ancient evil. Angered it, wounded it, but did not kill it, for such evil never truly dies.

An army greater than any the world has ever known marches bringing steel and death with it, and somewhere, a 1,000-year-old evil lurks in the darkness, plotting and bending its will toward revenge.

Aaron and his companions have gathered allies to help them in the coming battle, and each day, his bond with the Virtue of Compassion grows stronger, gifting him greater and greater power.

But if life on the street taught Aaron anything, its that no one is better able to stab you in the back as those standing behind you. And as his power with the legendary creature grows, so, too, does an uncontrollable rage that threatens to consume him.

His enemies are many, his friends few, but no matter what happens, they will all learn the truth of a sellswords strength.

He will show them a sellswords resolve.

indirection acquired

Shallow characters, plot that drags on, and decisions that make no sense. Overall I finished this book just to finish it, but amongst the fantasy books I’ve read and listened too, this series is near the bottom. Main character is essentially a mad child that makes terrible decisions but everyone seems to follow his lead for no reason what so ever.
