Publisher's Summary

Where he walks, death follows.

He was once known as Prince Bernard, ruler of his people and the man who led them in the Fey War against creatures out of myth and legend, beings out of nightmare. A man renowned for his strength, a man feared by his own people as much as his enemies. But there are other names for him, too. Kingslayer. Oathbreaker. Traitor. The Crimson Prince.

And they are all true.

Now, he is simply Cutter, a man who arrived at the village of Brighton, a small place on the outskirts of the Known Lands, where men and women brave the harsh temperatures and freezing winds to survive. A man who brought with him a past full of regrets and an infant child, one he swore to protect. For 15 years, he watched over the child, hidden away in the desolate wilderness. But a man cannot run from his past — not forever. Sooner or later, it catches him. Always, it catches him.

Death comes to Brighton, led by a brother he betrayed and the troops of a kingdom he betrayed. Death comes to Brighton — and it is he who brought it. With an entire kingdom against him, with the Fey stirring restlessly in the Black wood, eager for revenge, a lone warrior, once a prince, will be forced to take up his axe once more to protect the youth. To keep his promise. It is heavy that axe, that promise, but he carries it, as he must. It is the price of his sins.

It is a warrior’s burden.

A Warrior's Burden is the first book in Saga of the Known Lands, a new series by best-selling author Jacob Peppers. It is a grimdark epic fantasy tale of creatures out of myth and legend, magic, battles, and warriors pitted against each other in a deadly struggle to survive.

Excellent Grimdark Fantasy, I highly recommend this!

That book was just freakin fun to read, it just clicked for me.

This is what I want to read when I buy a fantasy book.
I don’t want to listen to a love story.
Give me scarred, bloody, and guilty all day.

Very pleased with this credit spent. Very pleased! Well done JP!

A lot of rambling

This book is so long because of all of the rambling about how the main character is a blood thirsty monster. I am only about 7 hours into this book and I'd say there is about maybe 2 hours of actual story that has actually happened the rest of that has just been rambling on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on, about practically nothing. The author just keeps repeatedly saying how the main character is a bloodthirsty master but somehow he seems to be able to control himself but all it takes is a little bit to wake it up and he deserves the pain of life. So far I'm extremely dissatisfied with this book

takes a little bit to get into it...

took me a bit to get into it, it can be a bit repetitive/confusing at first. but the end is very good and exciting yet not overly done. highly recommend if you give it the time

After All……

Having a hard time even finishing this audiobook… After all, you can only use the phrase after all so many times after all.. not a bad story and not the worst narrator. But not a good combo at all..

A struggle.

I think for the first time in a long while.I didn't care.
I openly admit this book was a struggle.Not sure if it was the narration or the labourious detail..
Certainly the Story was of 'my kind' but that's where it ended.
I shall not be reading anymore.

word diarrhoea and contradictory.

ok when is the story going to start? it's just the main character thinking, overanalysing constantly. and it's contradictory. in the same chapter the main character is described as a warrior instead of am evil killing machine. then in the forst bit of action, he is described as literally: not a warrior, not a soldier, but a killer. like in those exact words. it's ridiculous and childish.
