Glynn continues the genre fusion tradition he’s known for with Starship’s Mage in the Teer and Kard short fantasy novels. This series fuses the western genre with high fantasy.
In Wardtown, the first book in the series, we meet Teer, a young man who was forced into exile in the Spehari’s Eastern Territories after their nation, the Unity, betrayed his father’s memory to leave him and his mother destitute. He grew up on the ranch belonging to his mother’s new husband, nursing the skills of a cowboy and the anger of a betrayed child.
When one of the demigod-like Spehari walks into his local bar, Teer gives in to a moment of anger and opens fire on one of the rulers of the Unity. Sentenced to hang for his crime, Teer’s life hangs by the slimmest of threads: the mercy and secrets of the very immortal he tried to kill…
The series continues in book 2, Blood Ward.
At the start of the book, cowboy Teer has joined the rogue El-Spehari demigod Kard in his work as a bounty hunter. When a favored servant of the Unity’s Spehari ruler is beaten and left for dead, the two bounty hunters are hired to track the attacker into the wilderness. Once they capture the culprit, Teer faces a difficult question: what is more important—her crimes…or why she committed them?
Spring of 2023 sees the release of book 3, Blood Adept. At the start of the novel, Teer is more confident in his abilities, but lacks training. While seeking the help of a shaman, the duo learn that an intelligent and powerful monster is on the loose – and the hunting party sent to contain the threat has been slaughtered.
However, there’s more to this powerful monster than teeth and claws. They possess incredible magical powers, powers that may offer the key to Teer controlling his own strange magic.
Follow the tales of this unlikely duo in a world that expertly fuses the classic western with innovative twists on high fantasy.
On the open range of the Unity’s Eastern Territories, adventure awaits.
