Review by Bernadette877
Twitter is my ‘word of mouth’ these days. It’s how I discovered Jen Williams’ first novel, The Copper Promise. The Iron Ghost follows three friends who survived awakening a dragon god (and worse) through their next adventures. For these battle hardened sell-swords, stealing a town’s chunk of magical rock back should be a doddle. But the town also hosts the ancient grave of mage Joah Demonsworn. Given that name, of course things don’t go well. Jen Williams is great at creating characters I truly believe continue to drink (to celebrate, drown their sorrows, because someone else was buying) outside the pages of her books. Well, the Black Feather Three need to get drunk. A lot. While both novels are magical romps on the surface, they get very very dark indeed. Jen puts her characters into gruesomely awful situations, with truly horrible deaths. Some played for the blackest of laughs, some deeply moving. I know there’s another book on the way and I can’t wait.
