The Pedlar and the Bandit King (Scarlet and the White Wolf #1)

Scarlet of Lysia is an honest peddler, a young merchant traveling the wild, undefended roads to support his aging parents. Liall, called the Wolf of Omara, is the handsome, world-weary chieftain of a tribe of bandits blocking a mountain road that Scarlet needs to cross. When Liall jokingly demands a carnal toll for the privilege, Scarlet refuses and an inventive battle of wills ensues, with disastrous results. Scarlet is convinced that Liall is a worthless, immoral rogue, but when the hostile countryside explodes into violence and Liall unexpectedly fights to save the lives of Scarlet's family, Scarlet is forced to admit that the Wolf is not the worst ally he could have, but what price will proud Scarlet ultimately have to pay for Liall's friendship?...

  • Emily G

    I loved this book! The strapline is 'A romantic retelling of a classic fairytale...' in truth, the story only has one scene that comes from Little Red Riding Hood and of course, Scarlet wears a red coat but that's where the similarities end. Set on the southern continent of Nemerl, Scarlet makes his trade and supports his family, as a pedlar. He mets Liall the Wolf at a toll road, Liall and his band of bandits are holding. Liall asks for a kiss as the toll, Scarlet refuses and a battle of wills ...more

    Review to follow.

    Updated:

    Upon finishing this book, my initial thoughts were... I need more stars to rate it properly!

    I really loved this one. Scarlet was such a wonderful character, he won my heart very early on. And Liall... OhMY! How much do I love Liall?! I want to keep him for my very own!

    This was my third time reading Kirby Crow. Kirby's writing just knocks my socks right off. So vivid, so packed full of emotion, just so all around fabulous. With this book

    The Pedlar and the Brigand King is a tale that succeeds in entertaining the reader with otherworldly adventures where deep characterization has no part to play, certainly, but which offers interesting characters who fulfil their function to mirror human weaknesses.

    The author builds an extremely rich world of kingdoms and people I still need to become familiar with but I liked feeling slightly disoriented; it’s part of the game, after all!

    I enjoyed the story that may be without big surprise but p

    Once again, I’m going to gripe about authors who split novels into small parts. I don’t mind so much if the entire story is written and in my possession. I really dislike waiting forever between installments, cruel cliffhangers, and unanswered questions. Furthermore, when I pay $4.99 for a story, I want it to be complete. Otherwise, I feel I’m getting ripped off.

    That said, I really enjoyed this captivating and atmospheric fantasy just as much

    ““Calm down, it’s only a game, lad!”

    Scarlet threw Liall off, wiping his mouth on his sleeve, and stood several paces away, his chest heaving and his eyes spitting hate. The silly cap had fallen off and revealed his midnight hair underneath, though his bangs and the fringe of disheveled hair around his face were grimed with the flour he had combed into it. With his legs tangling in the wide skirt and his padded bosom jiggling, he looked ludicrous, which only made the men laugh harder.

    “No!” Scarlet shouted over them. “It’s only a game to you! I’ve lost work on your account. It may mean nothing to you if I go back to my family empty-handed, but I’m only a pedlar. If I don’t work, I don’t eat, and my parents are getting old. They depend on me. Unlike you and your kind, I can’t just steal whenever I need something!””


    Buried under Scarlet’s deep dislike for Liall is a smidgen of attraction for the White Wolf.

    “Yes, Liall was a handsome man, but a detestable one, and as compelling as he was, Scarlet would not be pressured or pushed.”


    After Scarlet’s life is endangered, though, it is not too difficult to like Liall, especially as the reader gets perspectives on events from both characters and Liall is fully aware of how badly he screwed up.

    I loved the slow burn of their growing relationship and their adventures, and Scarlet’s inner strength and innocence. There is a variety of interesting secondary characters and wonderfully detailed and vivid scenes from the world they live in. This story also explores friendship, family relationships, and discovering oneself. Bad things happen, Liall remains a mystery, and both men have serious challenges to overcome.

    I very much look forward to joining Scarlet and Liall on their journey north.

    Thanks to Lei from Bookie Nookie's Erotic Lending Group for lending this to me. ...more

    4.5 stars

    This book is brilliant.

    The author has created an interesting world, and from the first few pages I was completely enthralled.

    Scarlet is a great character, young and full of passion inside, but still smart and level headed on the outside. He's young in the story, but has worked since he was fourteen, and we have the image of a young man that's both still innocent and naive, and not at all.

    The Wolf is another great character, full of mysteries that still have to be revealed.

    Scarlet and the White Wolf, at the beginning was pretty boring and I couldn't get into it. There were used many new words without explanation, so it didn't help with understanding the story.

    But then, something has changed. We got to know Liall and suddenly, also the main character, Scarlet has become different. I loved reading the banter between them and I impatiently waited to see how their story was going to end.

    Overall, it's an interesting fantasy story (I won't say "well-written", because so

    De esos libros que se dan una vez cada tanto. Complejo y sutil, es mucho más que los límites que le impone un género viciado por copias de copias de copias, que repiten estructuras y perpetúan clichés. Kirby Crow es un talento difícil de igualar.
