Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

How does the author’s immensely popular Legion of the Damned recruit its desperate and deadly members? This novel provides some clues. Lady Catherine Carletto can only be described as a playgirl—until her brother is murdered by a particularly devious plot of the ruthless Imperial Princess Ophelia. Suddenly, Catherine is flung into the middle of her brother’s plots to overthrow the empire—but she has to stay alive first, before she can exact vengeance. So Lady Catherine vanishes, and the Legion of the Damned gains a new recruit—Andromeda McKee, like most of her new comrades a driven person with very little left to lose and no fear of consorting with the desperados who make up the ranks of the Legion. Space opera at a very high level, and not a bad place to make the acquaintance of the Legion. --Roland Green --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Format: Hardcover
Military Science Fiction, oh how I've missed you. In the never ending journey to expand my interests I find that I have neglected my favorite of all genres. The recent release of Halo 4 had me jonesing for a military sci-fi fix. Fortunately, around that time the notorious William C. Dietz asked if I would be interested in reviewing ANDROMEDA'S FALL, the latest Legion of the Damned novel.

This marks my first Legion of the Damned novel, and it tells the story of Catherine Carletto, a wealthy socialite. In the blink of an eye Catherine's life is turned upside down when the Emperor's sister makes a bold power grab. In order to consolidate power and excise the threat of rebellion the newly crowned Empress has the dead Emperor's friends and supporters assassinated. Catherine's and her family fall under this category. Orphaned and on the run, Catherine enlists with the Legion under the alias Andromeda McKee.

ANDROMEDA'S FALL is the tenth book in the Legion of the Damned series, though as I understand it is also the beginning of its own mini-arc. A prequel of sorts. I've always wanted to get into the Legion of the Damned series but I just never got around to it. The more books that have been published the more daunting it seems to begin. ANDROMEDA'S FALL strikes me as a middle ground - a good starting point for beginners and a glimpse into the background lore for the fans.

ANDROMEDA'S FALL is very accessible. Though largely military oriented the hardcore jargon is kept to a minimum. I was looking forward to learning about the Legion but ANDROMEDA'S FALL is primarily focused on McKee. Not that I'm complaining. I mostly like McKee as a character. She's a strong woman, a dedicated soldier, and a quick thinker.

I always enjoy Dietz's Legion of the Damned, with its tragic heroes. This a promising start to a new series and left me wanting to know more about the main character. Enjoyable, fast paced read.

I was initially attracted by the cover as I'm always looking for books with strong female heros. I had absolutely no idea that there was a series about the Legion of the Damned or that this was the 10th book in the series. But none of that knowledge is needed to enjoy this book for what it is--a well-written novel about a feisty woman who manages to succeed in a very foreign military world. Different and enjoyable. I'll definitely look for the next in the series.

Tis book is a stand alone story set in the universe of the legion. But it leaves you wanting to read more about the main character and what happens to them.

Format: Hardcover
Cat is a spoiled, rich girl until she suddenly has to go on the run. Yet she's very smart and resourceful, and her true potential is realized when she joins the Legion. With only her will to live and desire for vengeance guiding her, Cat excels within the Legion. But Cat is never safe since Ophelia's minions are still searching for her.

Andromeda's Fall is first in a Legion of the Damned prequel trilogy. And since this is a new standalone series, I haven't read the original series and didn't feel like I was missing anything. Military science fiction fans won't want to miss this one. An exciting plot and engaging characters made this novel impossible to put down. Fast-paced and action-packed with plenty of suspense, intrigue and drama - I couldn't get enough of Cat's story. I'll be impatiently awaiting the next in this promising new series.

I've read Legion of the Damned 20 plus years ago. It was a seminal sci fi military read. Just amazing. When I heard that there were prequel books I was like, whatever... but holy hell. This is awesome. Getting the next two now!!

An absolute amazing return to the Legion of the Damned universe! William C. Dietz is stellar at making real, fleshed out characters and the star of Andromeda's Fall is no different. He did a great job of making a very tough, very natural female lead. Something that sadly isn't done enough in most other works.

Its awesome that he set it as a prequel as it kind of gives a reset to the Universe in the best possible ways. I'm not one to spoil things and I don't want to by accident here either, but suffice to say this is a perfect novel for fans of the series to pick up, as well as a great starting point for newcomers.
