The Fifth Ward: First Watch is the first book in the Fifth Ward series. This is essentially a murder mystery/ fantasy tale. Two members – a human and dwarf – of the city’s police force start bending the rules to solve a murder. The drama unfolds as the duo gradually find themselves unraveling an increasingly sinister operation.
Lucas does a great job building his two main characters. Both are endearing and seeing them learn to trust one another is one of the main driving forces in this book. Plus there’s tons of action!
The next book (no release date yet) in the series is The Fifth Ward: Friendly Fire.
