The Fifth Ward: First Watch Summary


The Fifth Ward: First Watch by Dale Lucas

A buddy cop story in a secondary world setting. What else do you need to know? . . . page-turning entertainment' Pornokitsch

In the cramped quarters of the city of Yenara, humans, orcs, mages, elves and dwarves all jostle for success and survival, while understaffed watch wardens struggle to keep the citizens in line.

Enter Rem. New to the city, he wakes bruised and hungover in the dungeons of the fifth ward. With no money for bail - and seeing no other way out of his cell - Rem jumps at the chance to join the Watch.

Torval, his new partner - a dwarf who's handy with a maul and known for hitting first and asking questions later - is highly unimpressed with the untrained and weaponless Rem. But when Torval's former partner goes missing, the two must learn to work together to uncover the truth and catch a murderer loose in their fair city.

'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. A wilder ride than Middle Earth, and you'll love every minute of it! Jon Hollins, author of the Dragon Lords series

'A thrilling adventure, it's a buddy action movie masquerading as a fantasy book and I found it to be an awesome read' The Tattooed Book Geek
