I’d give this novella six stars if I could. Brilliantly written, it’s as dark and gory as it is richly detailed with breathtaking prose.

The world is Arn, where metals have magical properties and are considered cursed, so all metals have been outlawed. Only stone, wood, and crystal are used to make things. But some metals were fashioned before the laws were enacted—and some creatures, too.

The hero, known only as The Cowl or Blackbeak, is scarred and deformed, his personality cold and distant. Yet his goal is a noble one: to rid the world of the cursed metal and creatures plaguing it and protect innocent citizens—even if they see him as little more than a monster himself. To do this, he uses cursed metal, a sword of frightening power with a personality bent on destruction.

I love this style of character, a dark superhero with loads of inner pain, but who’ll do the right thing no matter what. The author brings him to life in vivid and believable detail. The world of Arn is fully realized through beautiful descriptions that felt fresh and original. There are plenty of twists, creepy characters, and the action is exciting and brutal. You won’t be disappointed if you give this novella a try! Very highly recommended!
