Product description

Review

"First Watch is brilliantly written. Action, intrigue, and humor... Genuinely, CSI: LOTR."--Reality's a Bore

"If you're looking for a book that will give you everything you love about fantasy in a way you haven't seen before, you've found it."--B&N Sci-Fi & Fantasy Blog

"A brilliant premise, wonderfully told. A city that breathes, and heroes you can't help but root for."-- Nicholas Eames, author of Kings of the Wyld

"A glorious tour through fantasy's seamier side, complete with irreverent dwarves and rabble-rousing orcs, mages, and humans. A wilder ride than Middle Earth, and you'll love every minute of it!"-- Jon Hollins, author of the Dragon Lords series

"First Watch is a thrilling adventure, it's a buddy action movie masquerading as a fantasy book... an awesome read."--The Tattooed Book Geek

"Fans of diverse cityscapes, mismatched buddy cops, and high adventure will relish this fantasy series launch... tantalizing."--Library Journal

"I could have read this story for eternity, the characters and world building are that good ... every scene is brought to life with blazing imagery that is tied to constant movement. The characterization is superb and continues to surprise as events unfold."--Koeur's Book Reviews

"A well-written adventure."--Cannonball Read

"Dale Lucas tells a rambunctious tale that sends the two watchmen into the worst parts of Yanara, fighting orcs and dealing with elves. The case is far bigger than either expected and leads to villainy that is actually illegal in the city. I can't wait for the next case."--University City Review

"Great fun ... [First Watch] injects new life into a well-established formula ... [a] thoroughly splendid debut."--The Eloquent Page --This text refers to the paperback edition.

About the Author

Dale Lucas is a novelist, screenwriter, civil servant, and armchair historian from St. Petersburg, Florida. Once described by a colleague as "a compulsive researcher who writes fiction to store his research in," he's the author of numerous works of fantasy, neo-pulp, and horror. When not writing at home or trapped in a cubicle at his day job, he loves travel, great food, and buying more books than he'll ever be able to read. --This text refers to the paperback edition.
