Treasure of Ice and Fire - Wayne D. Dundee

Wayne D. Dundee isn’t just one of the best hardboiled mystery and Western writers around these days. With the release of TREASURE OF ICE AND FIRE, he proves that he can spin a fine sword-and-sorcery yarn as well.

Based on concepts created by Kyle J. Knapp and developed by David Cranmer, Dundee’s story takes place in the land of Brassik, which has been conquered and occupied by an invading army from Wyvar. There’s a resistance movement, though, and one of the leading figures is the rogue priest Nindocai, who’s on the trail of a long-lost treasure that may be the key to freeing his land from the invaders and restoring the rightful gods to their places. In order to do that he’ll need help from a blacksmith with what may be a magical hammer, a beautiful huntress, and a young man with an unusual and possibly sinister birthmark.

No matter what genre Dundee is working in, the reader is sure to be entertained by his well-drawn and interesting characters, his fast-moving plots, and his great action scenes. All of this is true of TREASURE OF ICE AND FIRE. It’s a thoroughly enjoyable book, and I hope he returns to the land of Brassik for more tales like this in the future.
