5 stars for Tales of Erana: The Warrior's Curse by Award-Winning Author @libraryoferana #darkfantasy
Title: Tales of Erana: The Warrior's Curse
Author: A.L. Butcher
Genre: Dark Fantasy Horror, Dark Fantasy, Short Story
He who bargains with monsters beware! A hero forges an unholy bargain with a witch and learns magic never forgets.
In a land of forbidden magic a mysterious cave holds both riches and danger for three adventurers who discover a mighty treasure and a terrible secret.
A short fantasy tale set in the world of Erana - the world of The Light Beyond the Storm Chronicles.
This story is captivating simply because you concentrate on the seven deadly sins, particularly greed. The promise of riches has captivated many a man, woman, elf, witch, warlock or witch hunter through time.
The author's use of a seer who is able to see the story of a bejeweled item is classic. The tale of the witch and the castle was riveting.
Brilliantly written, the story flows and captures the reader's attention and holds it. One doesn't have to have read many of the Tales of Erana without having the thought that THAT witch needs to take on some of those miserable Witch Hunters who strut around.
If you are a fan of this series, you will love this book. If you are a fan of Game of Thrones you will love this book!
