A Queen of the West by Diarmuid O' Briain
A Queen of the West is a traditional sword and sorcery, quest fantasy.
From Will: I have read the first two chapters of this book and thorougly enjoyed them. This is a fast moving and visceral tale true to the genre of swords and sorcery. Each chapter ends with a bang!

Ruthless slavers under the orders of Dreadlord Ultor have kidnapped Princess Megan.
The Pathfinders are the nation's finest warriors. Major Antillus Brok leads the rescue team.
But before the journey starts, Brok causes consternation by requesting the inclusion of the one man that might make all the difference, the Pathfinders finest warrior, a man simply known as, Panther.
