Judge him by his size, do you?
Epik, a young halfling, is ill-content with his unambitious life in the Bog. He dreams of magic – of wizards, knights, and of a kingdom not so far away.
When Epik does finally move to the city, his life isn’t really turned upside down. No, but he does, however, find a wizard who halfheartedly grants the halfling an apprenticeship – if Epik pays upfront.
Things in Dune All-En are not as fine as they seem. Every ten years the king is overthrown, beheaded, or worse. And King Simmons’s ten years are up.
As a secret sect meet to plot the king’s inevitable demise, a damage (it’s a thing) of mountain trolls threatens the city. And Epik sees the opportunity to do something, well, epic.
He must learn magic.
He must save the girl.
And he must protect the kingdom . . . Before it falls into the wrong hands.
Featuring halflings, dwarves, elves, at least one duplicitous wizard, and a game of darts to rival the Mickey’s Pool Palace Pub and Eatery Dart Championship of 1976, Hero in a Halfling is the first in the Epik Fantasy Series and is perfect for fans of both Discworld and Middle-earth.
