Read First Watch (The Fifth Ward #1) Online Free - Humans, orcs, mages, elves, and dwarves all jostle for success and survival in the cramped quarters of Yenara, while understaffed Watch Wardens struggle to keep its citizens in line.
Enter Rem: new to Yenara and hungover in the city dungeons with no money for bail. When offered a position with the Watch to compensate for his crimes, Rem jumps at the chance.
His new partner is less eager. Torval, a dwarf who's handy with a maul and known for hitting first and asking questions later, is highly unimpressed with the untrained and weaponless Rem.
But when Torval's former partner goes missing, the two must consort with the usual suspects -- drug dealing orcs, mind-controlling elves, uncooperative mages, and humans being typical humans -- to uncover the truth and catch a murderer loose in their fair city.

I really wanted to love this book but I was kind of disapointed. The summary sounded great with all the different creatures. I thought I was getting a gritty dark fantasy but that just wasnt the case. I enjoyed some parts of it so it wasnt a bad book. I think I just wasnt in the right mood. Ive r...

Take your favorite cop show (Lethal Weapon is a personal favorite), place it in a filthy city with a distinct medieval feel, add dwarves, elves and other assorted creatures and you’ll get a pretty clear idea of what to expect from Fifth Ward: First Watch. Everyone has their weak spot, and buddy...

Take the middle earthian fantasy setting ( orcs, elves etc), combine it with buddy cop crime movies/novels (bad boys, starksy/hutch and lethal weapon) and you havr the First Watch. Very simple in setting, typecast characters ( seen them before) but has great humour and a fun plot that made th...

I do so enjoy a good buddy cop movie – Tango and Cash, The Heat, The Nice Guys, the list goes on and on. The premise of The Fifth Ward: First Watch by Dale Lucas couldn’t be simpler, take your favourite buddy cop movie and transpose it to a slightly different setting. Just exactly how would Riggs...

Supernatural buddy cop adventure. Do I have your interest now? I so enjoyed this book. I honestly thought it was going to be more of a contemporary urban fantasy story, but it was in a legit fantasy world while focusing on the members of the city Watch. It felt like I was witnessing a D&D adv...

First thing that came to mind when I read the synopsis was Will Smith's new Netflix movie 'Bright'.
"Humans, orcs, mages, elves, and dwarves all jostle for success and survival in the cramped quarters of Yenara, while understaffed Watch Wardens struggle to keep its citizens in line."

I have in previous reviews referred to my enjoyment of bubble-gum fantasy and science fiction. These are novels that you can read in a day, don't require particularly deep thought, involve heroes that, if they were in a western, would be wearing white hats and riding a white horse, and villains t...

First Watch was a pleasure to read! The story was well written and the pacing kept my attention through the end. The story follows Rem, a noble in disguise, as he tries to make it on his own in the world. His travels lead him to seek a job in the city of Yenara. By chance, Rem joins the city guar...
