This omnibus ebook contains the first two novels in the Monarchies of God series - 'Hawkwood's Voyage' and 'The Heretic Kings'.

THE WESTERN WORLD IS BURNING... For Richard Hawkwood and his crew, a desperate venture to carry refugees to the uncharted land across the Great Western Ocean offers the only chance of escape from the Inceptines' pyres. In the East, Lofantyr, Abeleyn and Mark – three of the five Ramusian Kings – have defied the cruel pontiff's purge and must fight to hold their thrones through excommunication, intrigue and civil war. In the quiet monastery city of Charibon, two humble monks make a discovery that will change the whole world. Aekir, the Holy City, has fallen and all now seems lost, but even on the eve of destruction the Faithful still war amongst themselves... 'Hawkwood and the Kings' collects 'Hawkwood's Voyage' and 'The Heretic Kings', the first two books in Paul Kearney's spectacular 'The Monarchies of God' cycle.

Entertaining but not even close to A Song of Ice and Fire or The Malazan Book of the Fallen in my opinion (having read all books in all three series).

This series is what Song of Ice and Fire should have been. In fact, Martin should ask Kearney for help finishing Song of Ice and Fire in a timely manner.

I also think that it ended too suddenly. Ultimately disapointing as it had a lot of potential

I've been reading fantasy for 40 years and was looking for something I haven't read that won't bore me to tears with it's clunky writing and unnecessary length. What a gem of a series! Thank you bestfantasybooks.com for the recommendation. This series is 1) COMPLETE 2)Doesn't wander around for 25 years (Earth years)with excessive verbosity 3) engaging and beautifully written. You were right - criminally underrated and neglected.

Considering each book is only a few hundred words, it must be GoT ultra-light
