Waiting On Wednesday: The Hammer and the Blade by Paul Kemp

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

The Hammer and the Blade by Paul Kemp

Egil and Nix, adventurers and swords for hire, are pulled into the dark schemes of a decadent family with a diabolical secret. 

Kill the demon.
Steal the treasure.
Retire to a life of luxury.

Sounds easy when you put it like that.

Unfortunately for Egil and Nix, when the demon they kill has friends in high places, retirement is not an option.

A fast paced adventure redolent with the best of classic sword and sorcery tales.. (June 26, 2012)

Sometimes you want to read a thousand page epic work of mythological fantasy, and sometimes you just want some old-fashioned pulp sword-and-sorcery. I think this may just be the fix I need.


  1. Haven't heard of that one! Sounds pretty intriguing!

  2. I just downloaded this from Angry Robot. I hope I have a chance to read it soon because it sounds like fun.

  3. Hah, I wish I would sometimes want 1000 pages epic fantasy novels, but most of the times, I just want me some Urban Fantasy and that's it. In any case, nice pick!
