They are the half-bloods, the broken, the unforgiven.
They failed themselves and their people.
They are outcasts.

Then, in the bitter wilds of Rashemen, they receive a desperate plea they alone can answer.

If they succeed, it could mean their redemption. But if they fail, a troubled past will be the least of their problems.

Actually, not bad. The best of this series. If you've got to read one, read this one. Nice hack-and-slash, People Die fantasy fiction, especially if the brooding hero type doesn't bother you.
A great book on honor and swordcraft.

Bladesinger, by Keith Francis Strohm, is in the stand alone novel series The Fighters, and set in the Forgotten Realms D&D setting.

I listened to this book via audible. An Awful reading. It was a struggle to get through, luckily the story and characters were compelling enough to finish listening. Everything was read over dramatically, that even the humour fell flat. An awful narration.

Recommends it for: any fantasy readers
it was hard to read at first but after the first chapter it gets really good
A good one-off book about my favorite D&D fighting style from back in the day.
Sometimes, you just want a good action fantasy. This is a good one.
