Two exiled princesses, Lernea and Parcifal, happen upon the roguish Winceham. After a quick chase, they witness the murder of a local innkeeper, Ned’s father. Pledging their sword, shield and bow to cleansing the local lands of the tyrannical pirate lord Hobb and avenging the death of Ned’s father.
They meet with a strange elven sorcerer by the name of Hanultheofodor, Theo for short, and his pet magical bunny. When they reach his village, the villagers are all gone and the village has turned into a heap of smouldering ruins.
The quest for vengeance has turned into a rescue mission that will take them across space, have them face abyssal alien terrors and learn so much more about themselves and everything they have taken for granted. In the grand chessboard of life, they slowly turn from unwitting pawns into grandmasters themselves. And they manage a good laugh in the process as well.
****** “Party of Five – A game of Po” contains Parts I to III of the Party of Five fantasy novella series. ******
Lots of humor in this novel, which is parts 1 thru 3, and it works out quite well. The drunken thief thinks he is seeing things when he first encounters the bunny with red eyes, that shoots out flames when needed. The two princesses are unsure about what to do, even with their powers and warrior training. Throw in Ned, the innkeepers son, who is out for revenge upon the people who killed his father. Throw in to the mix the ‘owner’ of the bunny, a magic user who is not all to sure what is up in the world, and you have a world class romp of an adventure.
Nice plot and great characters make this novel engrossing and fun to read. Quick action and plot moves along quite well. There are additional characters introduced in the novel that help plot move along.
