Omar and his chance companion Thorian are caught up in an intrigue of war, gods, treachery, and lust.
Standard Dave Duncan in that this is a fun, very readable fantasy with agreeable, intelligent characters. The Reaver Road is one of two books featuring Omar the Storyteller (also see The Hunter’s Haunt). The players act (sort of) as real people might, and are characteristically upbeat and optimistic. All in all, a lighthearted bit of fun in much the same enjoyable vein as most other Duncan books.
