Review of ‘The Age of Heroes’

Posted on Updated on

What does an aging hero do with himself when he’s the Last Great Hero? If he’s Rawk, he trades on his notoriety for a few coins and free food, and tries his best to ignore the creaks and groans of a body that can no longer support the exploits of his youth.

I received a free copy of The Age of Heroes: the Last Great Hero by Scott J. Robinson in exchange for my review. Robinson has done a superb job of creating a world that is populated by a strange and entertaining cast of characters.

When Rawk is injured taking down a magical creature that is no longer supposed to be around, he goes in search of a healer—but, not just any healer—he seeks the assistance of his arch-enemy, Silver Lark, a magician who is living incognito to avoid the unwelcome attention of Prince Weaver, who has outlawed magic in the land.

The Age of Heroes is a funny book, but it also addresses the serious issue of aging and the difficulty that active people have with the inevitable result of a body that no longer performs the way it once did.

A fun weekend read that I give four stars.
