Two rival sorcerers cast their spells as the flames rise above Dreaming Ferranoz, capital of the bright empire of Akkar. Half-human wolflings devour its citizens. The conflicting spells meet - and paralyze the city. No one moves, even to breathe. Time stands still. The pall of smoke hangs motionless over unflickering fires.

Outside the city walls, Kandar, prince of Ferranoz

This was a fairly run-of-the-mill sword and sorcery yarn, from a time when a lot of run-of-the-mill sword and sorcery book were coming out. I'll say this, it's better than some and it's way waaaay better than the godawful fantasy (more like anti-fantasy) book I finished before this.

Do they hunger for human flesh? Will they fling poo?" (view spoiler)

This book is practically the reference case for old-school heroic sword-and-sorcery, written in a bomb

Loved it! Great short fantasy story. If you were looking for something new, nothing really sets this one apart from any other in the genre. Everything was typical and by the book. The one thing I did not like though was the character gives up on his companions almost completely just to save his city. Other than that I really enjoyed this one, hope you do too.
