A nice short (very short, actually) slice of Grimdark. A female warrior comes across a savage sacking of a village by a group of Bonemen. Taking it upon herself to free the children the Bonemen have taken, our warrior bites off a bit more than she can chew but is fortunately aided by another prisoner and a new friendship is born.
A little on the short side but a bloody little tale featuring a strong female lead I'd like to read more from.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quick, Fun Grimdark Read 23 March 2017
By Wendell - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
With Forsaken, Eric S. Fomley pens an ultra fast-paced story introducing his Princess of Grimdark: Ayla. This badass heroine leaping off the pages at you, ready to rip out your throat with her bare hands. Her brutal presence and shadowy past instantly inspiring a deep desire to know more, More, MORE!

Be warned though, this first installment is very, very brief; a quick glimpse into Ayla’s brutal world, where intense combat and bloody death can happen any second. All of it written in a smooth, clean style which is easy to devour and can be enjoyed in a single sitting. But it isn’t meant to completely satisfy your grimdark yearns, rather it is very much like a tv episode where you are encouraged to immediately go on to the next to learn more, More, MORE!

The only complaint I can level at Forsaken is that it is too short. Once Ayla had me in her grip, I wanted to witness more of her visceral confrontations, learn more about her hidden history, and see where her path leads from this beginning. Alas, the vagrant princess released me too soon, disappearing back into the mist from whence she came.

As a sucker for quick, episodic fantasy, I’m optimistic about the future of Eric S. Fomley’s The Exiled Crown series. The fact that it is an unabashedly grimdark only makes me hunger more for the next installment. Really can’t wait to see where this new Princess of Grimdark goes from here.

This was a great read. It looks to be the start of a great story. The author did a great job of packing a good amount of entertainment in this short story.

The main character was enjoyable and I found myself rooting for her, despite getting only a few pages to get to know her. The fight scene was beautifully written.

I am excited to see where this goes so I will definitely be moving on to the next book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great read 16 March 2017

I have to admit I rarely spend time reading short stories, but this excellent story has convinced me that the genre has merit. The author did a spectacular job of capturing the look and feel of life in medieval times by using carefully chosen words. Additionally, he is able to communicate a lot in a short amount of time. Finally, the action sequences are fast and brutal, bringing to life the realities of hand to hand fighting. I definitely would recommend this to fans of medieval fantasy and short stories.

Great, quick, piece of indy fiction. Very enjoyable, and very much in the vain of Mark Lawrence's Grimdark style. Worth the money for a quick read.
3.0 out of 5 stars A nice short story 13 March 2017
By Nim - Published on

It was a nice faced-paced story about a highly capable vagrant princess who seeks to bring justice. The short story was nice and the writing is quite good, but feels more like a prologue, so I can’t say too much about it, because it felt too short. When I finished reading I felt like “ok, and what now?”.

I’m not sure this marketing model of releasing a series of short stories is the right one. Selling it as a collection of few short stories might work better.
As for the narrator – he’s ok, not more than that.
