“I’d just finished listening to the audiobook of Wilbur Smith’s River God, which is set in bronze age Egypt and at a time when a new bow design can change the course of a war. Imagine, then, what might happen if something more robust than a bronze blade was developed? I was ready for some bronze age action.
Jackals is a bronze age fantasy, and it’s a gritty high fantasy at that. It’s sorcery and sandals in the style of the Epic of Gilgamesh, and it gets the thumbs up from this ancient one.
The hardback is 16.13×23.72cm, aka A5, and that’s a great size. The book is easy to read in bed, have behind a GM screen, and the binding feels very robust.”
