Hi folks! This is Cam Banks, author of The Sellsword. You can read a sample chapter on the Wizards of the Coast website, here:

I'm proud to continue the tradition of action adventure stories set in the world of Krynn. I hope you enjoy the book as much as I did writing it.

My rating is 3.5 stars.

This book is part of the world of Dragonlance. It tells the story of a mercenary who is hired to rescue a baron's daughter from an occupied castle. He meets up with an old friend and together they partake of this adventure that turns into so much more.

This was an enjoyable book. It has no connection with other books of this world so it can be read without any prior knowledge. It is your basic fun adventure from a character who is an unlikely hero. It has plenty of action,
Loved this book.

The best things about this story was the haunted sword and a gnome that studied and experimented with pole axe fighting technics.
I loved the idea of a haunted sword, but the story itself was so twisted and convoluted that by the end it had simply left me confused.
