WEFOUNDThe Darkbow Collection - Six Epic Fantasy Novels (The Kobalos Trilogy, and The Horrors of Bond Trilogy)


I’ll be honest, I read these books because they were a special offer: 99p for the whole series!  Having said that, they weren’t at all bad.  The protagonist, Kron Darkbow, is an (initially) enigmatic character with an impressive range of skills after a less than traditional upbringing.  With the exception of the first book, the books are set exclusively in the city of Bond.

The city is medieval in character with a nascent government, and is coming to terms with a changing world after a war some years previously.  The war re-drew the map into different nations with very different philosophies. Magic exists but is still viewed with a certain amount of suspicion and fear, despite there being a formal university for the teaching of same.

There are 6 books in the series – each of which is a complete story which can be read on its own (though it’s best to read them in order as reference is made to previous events).  Each book details some kind of magical big bad – which gets bigger and badder the further into the series you go.

Kron Darkbow seeks vengeance, and he plans to have it no matter the costs. Returning to the city of his birth after 15 years, he hunts down the wizard responsible for the deaths of those he loved only to find out another was responsible for the murders. That other is Belgad the Liar, a former barbarian chieftain who is now boss of the city's underworld.

Kron Darkbow has fled the city of Bond, along with healer mage Randall Tendbones and professional duelist Adara Corvus. Everywhere they turn are enemies.

Even the goal of their travels offers no peace, for the group rides to the land of Kobalos where Randall must face that nation’s Lord Verkain, the alleged Dark King of the North.
