Book Description:

They used to be heroes . . . and it was all downhill from there.

The Starbreakers were your classic teenage heroes. Using their combined powers and skills, they were the most successful group of glintchasers in Corsar. But that all changed the day the city of Relgen died. The group went their separate ways, placing the blame on each other.

Brass carried on as a solo act. Snow found work as a notorious assassin. Church became a town’s spiritual leader. Angel was the owner of a bar and inn. And after overcoming his own guilt, Phoenix started a new life as a family man.

​Seven years after their falling out, a hefty bounty is placed on their heads. Phoenix tries to reunite the Starbreakers before everything they have left is taken from them. But a lot can change in seven years. And if mending old wounds was easy, they would have done it a long time ago.

My Review:
THEY MET IN A TAVERN by Elijah Menchacal was a well-written fantasy book. I really loved that the Starbreakers were teen heroes, but that the story focused more on them as adults than as teens. I was able to really get into the story as the characters were closer to my own age instead of teenagers. I have to say that I absolutely loved it as it is so hard to find this type of book that actually has well-written adult characters. I have to say after finishing it I can only hope the author decides to contineu to write in this genre.
