Black Stump Books is proud to announce the release of Derek Chamberlain’s fantasy novella, Reaper Hawk: Battle Pits of D’nur, on August 15.
Reaper Hawk: Battle Pits of D’nur is a fresh take on heroic Sword and Sorcery. It is a story of courage, commitment, betrayal, and revenge.
A young barbarian warrior leaves his home in search of a name and on a quest for his vanished friends and clan mates. His search for the truth takes him into the Battle-Pits of D'nur where he is forced to fight humans and beasts. His quest leads him into conflict with some of the Empire's most powerful people who are determined to see him dead. Betrayal is met with rough justice, corruption with cleansing fire.
Told as a tale to a troublesome minstrel, the clear voice and tight prose of this novella bring some much needed humility and humour to the grim business of being a youthful hero.
Look for the cover reveal here on August 1st.
