Classic Cover: THE WARSLAYER by Rosemary Edghill (Baen)

EdghillR-WarslayerAnother one that caught my eye from Goodreads. Not only is it a bit of a dodgy “classic-style” fantasy cover, but check out this, ah, exuberant style for the synopsis:


Gloria “Glory” McArdle plays Vixen the Slayer in a straight-to-syndication TV show where even the fans say the villain is the better actress. The wizards of Erchanen have been searching all the worlds to find a hero, and Vixen the Slayer is the last name on their list.

The Warmother, imprisoned a thousand years before by Ginnas the Warkiller, has broken free of her ancient chains. If a hero can’t be found somewhere in all the universes to fight for them, the people of Erchanen are toast. But is it Glory they're looking for… or Vixen

It all seemed to be a perfectly straightforward misunderstanding when Belegir was explaining it in Glory's dressing room. The reality – if you could call it that – isn’t just fighting for her life. Faced with a challenge like that, what can a girl do but pick up her magic sword and her stuffed elephant and give her trademark battle cry:

“Hi-yi-yi-yi! Come, Camrado! Evil wakes!”

Published by Baen in 2002.
