#SPFBO Finalists: My second book


Below is a round up of the ten finalists that have been put forward in this year’s SPFBO (Self Published Fantasy Blog Off).  A link with more information about the competition can be found here.


My first book, chosen randomly was The War of Undoing and my review and rating will follow shortly.  My second book is Chaos Trims my Beard by Brett Herman.  This book was Fantasy Faction’s finalist and their review can be found here.   This sounds like an unusual book that’s going to be a lot of fun.

A little bit more about the book:

Chaos Trims my Beard by Brett Herman

chaosEdwayn Sattler is a half-dwarf with a beard and a dead end job. One night when serving drinks to the city’s rich and famous, a fiery playboy loses control of his magic and goes on a burning rampage. After some ill-advised heroics aided by the magic that lives in Edwayn’s beard, he finds himself unemployed and socially exiled. With no other job or friends to fall back to, he signs on with an inscrutable ratman sporting a badge and a fetching hat, and together they dive beard and whiskers first into a magical murder conspiracy that threatens to consume the city.

Armed with sub-par wits, a dry sense of humor, and a handful of magical tricks, Edwayn encounters conflagrating cops, smooth-talking trolls, shadowy corporate enforcers, and an air-headed vixen with a fatalistic streak. When his easy-going life spirals into a thrilling, darkly hilarious tale of intrigue and deception, Edwayn will find out just how close this newfound chaos will trim his beard.

    The title of this book has certainly caught my attention 🙂

      It’s certainly an unusual title – and cover – so far the content is living up to the whole chaos ‘promise’ and the title is becoming a little easier to understand.

    This sounds pretty funny, but I’m not liking the title much. Hope you enjoy it!

    • @lynnsbooks

      Having read the first 30% the title is starting to make sense.

    It certainly sounds like a quirky read – but I’m not too sure about the humour. It sounds a bit slapstick and in your face (no pun intended…). I look forward to hearing what you make of it!

  4. Carmen

    It sounds like an entertaining adventure. I hope it delivers on the premise and you like it.

    They all look really good, and there seems to be a decent variety this year too!

    • @lynnsbooks

      Yeah, I’m very much looking forward to some of these.

    The “inscrutable ratman” certainly caught my attention here… 😀 😀

    • @lynnsbooks

      So far so good with this book – very entertaining and quite different.
      Lynn 😀

        I like the bleak style apocalyptic books and this one was slightly different with the family feel. I hope you enjoy it – drop me a link so I don’t miss your review (if you don’t mind).
        Lynn 😀
