Book: Scriber  

Ben S. Dobson, Scriber
A Fantasy story about medically trained historian Scriber Dennon Lark who is living in the country after destroying a priceless religious artefact and losing the trust of the Academy. When people under a zombie-like-influence attack several villages, Cpt. Bryndine Errynson fetches him to investigate the past of their kingdom and the origin of the strange influence.
I have not finished this book yet, but I'm in love. Bryndine is a miracle. She is a strong, masculine, tall, a trained soldier, gruff and vulnerable and amazing. Both characters are flawed and I can't remember when I've been as impressed by a character as I am by Bryndine, though presented with burly soldier girls whom the author doesn't instantly turn into someone wanting to bone the male lead I'm easy to please and quite excitable. And this book is not too expensive, the Kindle edition comes at under $4!

Sounds good! I just got a Samsung Galaxy Note out of the blue which works great as an ebook reader. I like strong female charakters very much, I'll note this a summer's read for the time after my exams. ;)

Ooh, do give it a whirl! The style is a bit unpolished, but the characters more than make up for it. The others are not as developed as the main two, but they are awesome.
