 Good Wednesday all hope everyone is doing ok and surviving this Christmas season . Today I have a brand new series for you from two of my favourite authors J.R Rain and H.P Mallory . GRUDGES (Dungeon Raider book one )

                             BOOK BLURB 

  The Forge...

It’s not a place that gives anyone the warm and fuzzies.
No, The Forge is a dungeon mine that used to be home to the Deep Mountain Clan of dwarves. Then the orcs took control of it and forced the dwarves out.
Now it’s a death sentence to any who try to voyage into its dark depths.
That’s where I come in.
No, I’m not some sort of soldier or mercenary trying to set things right.
I’m a thief.
And I’ve plundered many dungeons—enough to have earned a reputation for myself.
I’m good at what I do and that’s the exact reason why I’ve been hired by holy knight, Cade, to take him into the bowels of The Forge.
Cade was entrusted by his higher-up to retrieve a holy scroll, located in the belly of The Forge.
The only problem (aside from the territorial orcs, the nightmarish beasts that roam the tunnels and shafts, and the fact that no one has ever reached the final level of The Forge) is…
My ex-boyfriend, Aram.
So, this isn’t one of my prouder moments, but a long time ago, Aram and I were together. Then I stole something precious from him and he’s been after me ever since.
Well, you know what they say about karma…
My karma finally caught up to me when Aram staged a setup and I fell for the bait.
Imagine Aram’s irritation when he finally gets the chance to arrest me, but then Cade shows up with this quest. Even though Aram is a Justiciar, an enforcer of the law, Cade’s rank trumps Aram’s which means Cade’s word goes.
And Cade wants me to lead this expedition.
As I see it, I have two choices: rot inside a jail cell for the rest of my life or take my chances in The Forge, with the potential to earn my freedom.
I choose The Forge.
After all, I’m always up for an adventure.

                          MY REVIEW 
   Rogue is a thief and a good thief , when someone comes back from her past she is almost caught. Her ex has her in his sights when Cade comes in and trumps everything and wants Rogue to go on a quest in the Forge . Rogue has two choices go to jail or lead them into the depths of the Forge and maybe earn her freedom . 

  This story has it all adventure , great characters oh and Orcs . Rogue is a very resilient young woman . She will keep you on your toes through out the book . She is tough but also can be very sweet . She just wants to survive and earn her freedom . I truly liked the characters all from Rogue to Cade they are well written and complex I can't just pick one to like . Rogue is strong and you will love her . 

  This story is a real departure for one of the authors but they both can write a good story with great characters. It is the start of an epic fantasy that has a lot of potential . I honestly did find it a little hard at the beginning to get into the story , I did feel a little disconnect until about chapter 3 and then the story really took off for me . Once I connected with Rogue I couldn't put the book down. I found myself cheering for them and sitting on the edge of my seat through out the book. Over all I really did enjoy this book and I can't wait to see where the authors take the characters in book two . So if you want a good fantasy book to get lost in this Christmas season check it out
