The Fifth Ward: Friendly Fire

The Fifth Ward: Friendly Fire

‘A brilliant premise, wonderfully told. A city that breathes, and heroes you can’t help but root for’ Nicholas Eames on The Fifth Ward: First Watch

Humans, orcs, mages, elves and dwarves all jostle for success and survival in the cramped quarters of the city of Yenara, while understaffed Watch Wardens struggle to keep its citizens in line.

In the most dangerous district in the city, Rem and Torval have been perfecting their good cop, bad cop routine. But when a perplexing case of arson leads to a series of gruesome murders, the two partners must challenge their own assumptions and loyalties if they are to wrest justice from the chaos and keep their ward from tearing itself apart.
