D.E.M. Emrys….From Man to Man

From Man to ManFrom Man to Man by D.E.M. Emrys
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A man torn between his past and the present monotony of village life. Once a feared mercenary he now is just a normal villager. Well at least he is trying to be one. Apparently being a run of the mill guy is a lot harder than it looks.
The dialogue written in cursive is supposed to be a running commentary in the main characters head. This is often unclear whilst reading and sometimes it appears as if the comments are directly spoken to another character. Either way it needs to be more clear.
The path the author is taking suggests a combination of fantasy and a strong brother in arms element.
Although this was short, it was enough to intrique me to see where he will take the story next.
The writing had a certain element of a storyteller about it. The spark that not every author is gifted with. Hopefully that spark will become a flame in It Began With Ashes (Wroge Elements).
