Publisher Description

In a kingdom of merciless tyrants, Jebel Rum's family is honored as royalty because his father is the executioner. But Rashed Rum is near retirement. And when he goes, there will be a contest to determine his successor. It is a contest that thin, puny Jebel has no chance of winning.

Humiliated and ashamed, Jebel sets out on a quest to the faraway home of a legendary fire god to beg for inhuman powers so that he can become the most lethal of men. He must take with him a slave, named Tel Hesani, to be sacrificed to the god. It will be a dark and brutal journey filled with lynch mobs, suicide cults, terrible monsters, and worse, monstrous men. But to Jebel, the risk is worth it.

To retrieve his honor . . .

To wield unimaginable power . . .

To become . . .

Bryan J Lake ,

Amazing!

I would completely recommend this book to anyone. As soon as I started reading I couldn’t stop. The world that the author sets up is very graphic and interesting. If you’re looking for a great read, look no further than The Thin Executioner.

Trump should read this book

A great story that many can learn from. Great static and round characters

Anticlimactic

A solid book. Strong 3/4 of the book and a short and weak end.

Interesting world that's created
