Jahnes, an experienced mercenary at the peak of his profession, encounters an unstoppable foe, and his defeat leads him to question his life’s path. Holing up at a country inn to recover from his injuries, he becomes intrigued by the landlady, a woman of strength and compassion. As the months go by their relationship develops, and he begins to dream of a new life as an innkeeper.
But his unique talents and experience are needed to save the kingdom from attack by fierce savages from the high southern plains. Just when he is getting used to his new life, his old life reaches for him and offers him challenge and success such as he never dreamed of.
Of course, in order to satisfy the needs of his kingdom and his new family, he first has to stay alive.
The Innkeeper’s Husband is a standalone novel, part of the Petrellan Saga.
This was a super quick read for me. Jump into a fantasy world that will keep you on the edge of your seat. There is quite a bit of information with Gordon Long trying to make sure we understand his world, but in the end everything comes together and there is an excellent plot development.
Great mystical world with vivid details and intriguing characters. You will definitely be sucked in and eager for more books in this Saga.
