Stenson Blues follows the trials and tribulations of Olaf Stenson, nephew, and namesake of a hard-bitten mercenary. Olaf wasn't sure when his luck went bad. Most said it was the day he fell and twisted his leg out of shape, but that was just the final straw on his unhappy slide from favor. Olaf had accepted his fate until his long-lost uncle showed back up. To change his luck, he travels to the farthest reaches of the Seven Kingdoms to meet up with his uncle. Along the way, he must find his own path in a land filled with strife and with a family that wrote the book on politics and drama. Coming of age is tougher when you're a Stenson.
