Horker's Law

Adult
Rated 4.60/5 based on 5 reviews
Horkers are thieves; but they are thieves with a code. A part of that code is that Horkers do not use magic, and for good reason: It can be dangerous! When a young Horker finds himself committed to protecting a powerful artifact, he also finds out why Horkers eschew the use of magic... and how the training he has received as a Horker could be the next best thing.

About Mike Lee

Mike Lee lives and works in Denver, Colorado, as a psychotherapist (which he sometimes thinks is great practice for writing novels, since he believes that a lot of what passes for psychology these days is fiction, too.) His previous work has been published in magazines (as far away as Bulgaria) and in local newspapers, and has all been professional (relating to psychotherapy and psychology) or political in nature. An avid reader of all kinds of novels, as well as political commentary, he started writing fiction a few years ago as a hobby, and is fond of saying "It probably wouldn't have happened if they still made good TV shows."

Review by: Dingbat Publishing on Aug. 15, 2011 :
There's a new breed of novel arising, the self-pubbed novel with a great story that would have benefitted from an equally good editor. This is one of the best examples of that category I've yet read. "Horker's Law" has a solid, well-developed plotline with enjoyable characters. It's clearly set up as the first of a series and a sample of the next book is included at the end. Mike Lee is definitely an author I'll be tracking, even if I did predict one of his twists at the end.

At the same time, there's a lot here a good editor could have improved. Some scenes are overly developed and go on for too long. Although it's true you never know when something carefully worked into a previous scene will return to bite you, it's also true that these scenes would read better with some judicious cutting.

While there are no misspellings or formatting errors, there are poor grammar choices and obvious outright mistakes. An example is consistently using "it's" when "its" would have been correct. Therefore, grammar purists might prefer to give this book a miss. But if you can allow the author some patience, and prevent the errors and slips from pulling you out of the story, "Horker's Law" is clever and fun. I give it five stars for the story, and four for the book as presented

Amazing! Very interesting plot, great character development. I really liked the authors writing style which made it easy to read. Once I got past the preface and initial character development it was impossible to put it down. Looking forward to the sequel.

Great book! If I had picked that up in paperback I would be lookinh for the sequel right now. Very original. The preface is kinda wordy, you could skip it, however it does set up the geography, and story line nicely. Looking forward to Spiv and Josephs next adventure.
