Smashwords book reviews by David Wind

  • Hero For Hire on Nov. 04, 2013

    Conan and Tarzan and John Carter of Mars are the stuff of fantasy heroes I read growing up, and today I continue to search for more. I do think I have found one in Eno the Thracian. With Eno, the Hero For Hire, C.B. Pratt has created a hero who is self effacing yet powerful, witty at times, funny at other times and heroic when necessary. I thoroughly enjoyed this romp into fantasyland with Eno and look forward to more!
