Beautiful and grotesque, Borehole Bazaar reads like a sadistic blend of sociological journalism and epic fantasy. Namednil shoves the reader into the minds, behaviors, and ideologies of inhuman races whose world view has little concern for the morality ever present in the literature of more 'human' species. Creating a fatalistic sense of realism, the work exposes the darker aspects of human nature through creatures that are anything but.

The world needs more stories that explore the nature of abusive relationships--and Borehole Bazaar also happens to have elves and bugbears.

Interesting premise and concept. If you like D&D you'll love this book. Thakes me back to the first time I played a Table top game!

With gritty actions scenes and violent imagery, Borehole Bazaar: A Vow Unbroken adds an element of humanity to a notoriously violent race. The author walks a fine line with expert ease, bringing the reader into the world. Between the pacing and the narrative, this work is sure to keep the pages turning.

Don't let the impossible to pronounce names get you down. This one has heart.

From Chapter One, I was immediately reminded of the first time I read the Hobbit. With rich, descriptive prose, Namednil painstakingly paints the setting, describing each species along the way, just as Tolkien would have, to the reader as if they have discovered a wonderful forgotten old book that holdd the secrets of another world. High fantasy lovers will find this book very satisfying.
Mark Meredith
Borehole Bazaar is beautifully written. Cleverly dark and evocative, the characters feel alive.
Michael Molisani
It was a wonderful treat, like dried mangoes in the midst of winter Both playful and dynamic, Borehole Bazaar delves into the world of magic, politics, and mayhem.

An intriguing take on the genre with rich world building. Very curious to read more.

Many recent works in the fantasy genre have attempted to make the monsters less monstrous, and there is a place for those stories. Kendra Namednil, by contrast, uses touches of humanity to make the monsters in Borehole Bazaar even more monstrous, and the result is a wonderfully uncomfortable, brutally grim story of desperate survival. Namednil drags us down to the seedy underbelly  of a vibrant world filled with familiar (but uniquely rendered) high fantasy tropes to tell a story of culture shock, racism, and abuse. Borehole Bazaar is not for the squeamish, but it is definitely worth reading.
