What if you could fight a war and know that you were going to win?
What if you could fight a war and know that none of your warriors had to die? What if you had the chance to get everything you ever wanted and more besides?
Would you take it?
For Quiga Salkand the answer was ‘no, thank you very much.’ He preferred things the way they were, happy in his job as a councillor to the King of the Crescent Isle.
The trouble was, Quiga’s king was a bonkers, nutjob of a king. A war-mongering king who dreamt of leading an army to restore a long lost Kingdom and who might just have stolen the means to do it.
Quiga just wanted a quiet life. But you’ve got to play the hand you’re dealt. In addition to the mad king, Quiga must contend with two invasions, a murderous plot, ghosts, magic, and an ambitious wife who keeps urging him to snatch the throne.
He’ll be lucky to get out of this alive.
The Hero of Zegoma Beach is a standalone story in The Oconic Gates series, which includes Once Called Magic and The Oconic Prison.
“I love an unconventional main character, and Quiga is just the best. Dragged kicking and screaming into daring deeds and potentially heroic endeavors, he’s completely unequipped – not to mention unwilling – and his lovable anti-heroism breathes a bit of new life into the genre. With the solid writing and the fascinating world building (which already has me eyeing the first book in Green’s Oconic Gates series), I can’t think of a reason not to pick up this book.”! – Reviewed on bookishcreature.com.
