Review

In Dark Service possesses much complexity in terms of its detailed and often riveting exploration of locales and the differing characters which call them home Film in Words the ultimate test of a fantasy book is whether you want to read further volumes, and here In Dark Service succeeds magnificently 4* SFX The first of a trilogy, it builds a strong foundation for a world that still has so much to explore, with strong and interesting characters that have firmly found their feet in a wonderfully told story Sci-Fi Now A fast paced and inventive book, 'In Dark Service' is an intriguing start to a series that, with time, could be well worth a read.

Product Description

Carter has been kidnapped. Enslaved. But he's determined to fight to the end.
Jacob is a pacifist. His family destroyed. He's about to choose the path of violence to reclaim his son.
Their world has changed for ever. Between them, they're going to avenge it.

Jacob Carnehan has settled down. He's living a comfortable, quiet life, obeying the law and minding his own business while raising his son Carter ... on those occasions when he isn't having to bail him out of one scrape or another. His days of adventure are - thankfully - long behind him.

Carter Carnehan is going out of his mind with boredom. He's bored by his humdrum life, frustrated that his father won't live a little, and longs for the bright lights and excitement of anywhere-but-here. He's longing for an opportunity to escape, and test himself against whatever the world has to offer.

Carter is going to get his opportunity. He's caught up in a village fight, kidnapped by slavers and, before he knows it, is swept to another land. A lowly slave, surrounded by technology he doesn't understand, his wish has come true: it's him vs. the world. He can try to escape, he can try to lead his fellow slaves, or he can accept the inevitable and try to make the most of the short, brutal existence remaining to him.

... unless Jacob gets to him first and, no matter the odds, he intends to. No one kidnaps his son and gets away with it - and if it come to it, he'll force Kings to help him on his way, he'll fight, steal, blackmail and betray his friends in the name of bringing Carter home.

Wars will be started. Empires will fall. And the Carnehan family will be reunited, one way or another ...
