Shield and Crocus: Heros, Villains and A World Like No Other | Joe's Geek Fest







Underwood SHIELD CROCUS


Michael Underwood‘s Shield and Crocus is
an alternate world urban fantasy which contain a whole cast of
characters as villains, good guys, and semi-innocent bystanders. The
geography of the city, Audec-Hal, is that of a humanoid giant god, the
species are varied from the blue-skinned giant Freithin to the
yellow-skinned Ikanollo where all of the men look alike and as do the
women. The different races have various skills and, too top it all off,
there are spark storms which alter the citizens for Audec-Hal to give
them yet more individualistic funky powers. The heroes are the Shields
and the villains are a cartel of criminals, with lots of
in-fighting, who took over control of the city (and the City Mother) 50
years ago. Each run a district of the city. As the publisher blurb lays
it out:


Now, with nothing left to lose, First Sentinel
and the Shields are the only resistance against the city’s overlords as
they strive to free themselves from the clutches of evil. The only
thing they have going for them is that the crime lords are fighting each
other as well—that is, until the tyrants agree to a summit that will
permanently divide the city and cement their rule of Audec-Hal.
It’s one thing to take a stand against
oppression, but with the odds stacked against the Shields, it’s another
thing to actually triumph.
