In The Crimson Hunters by Robert J. Power, a ragtag team of mercenaries fights monsters and demons in the medieval world of Dellerin for coin and glory. The monsters and demons are under the command of The Dark One (who does not make an appearance in this tale). The group of fighters consists of two young men, Derian and Natteo, a motherly warrior woman named Kesta, and their intrepid leader, an older, experienced fighter named Lorgan, who does not always make the smartest decisions but evokes a positive fatherly attitude. They seem to be vastly outnumbered and doomed to fail, yet with a little luck and help in the fantasy world, this group seeks to entertain readers, especially with help from a drop- dead gorgeous and special female demon named Seren. There is a bit of sexual tension between her and Derian amidst all the fighting and tension.

The Crimson Hunters: A Dellerin Tale (The Crimson Collection Vol.1) by Robert J. Power is a solid fantasy work packed with a little farce, a bit of sardonic wit, and satire with a good helping of colorful characters. All this is neatly wrapped in an economical amount of pages. There's no doubt that the author knows how to write fantasy. A difficult enough genre to create in words, Power knows just how to get the reader invested in the fantasy world of The Crimson Hunters. There are no long, complicated summaries of the history and genealogy of said world that would only bog down the action and funny, sometimes cringe-worthy but heroic dialogue of the characters. After the first book in The Crimson Hunters series, fans will want to devour the next book and any future books on the horizon as soon they arrive.
