Repeat - I don't normally read this type of novel. Out of all the post-apocalyptic survival fiction the long term (500 yrs post-"Dying Time") is definitely not my favorite, I'm more a short-term kind of person. Also I have little to no interest in "epic" or "alternate Earth" books. However, I have become absolutely hooked in finding out more of what happens to Parno (main character), Wo (sidekick), Stephanie (love interest) and the clan McLeod. The "wizard" Finn is an interesting character, one that I think was included both for fun and realism.
READ THIS BOOK!!!! I think it will appeal to virtually everyone because the writing is exceptional. Yes there are minor editing errors here and there, as a bit of a perfectionist I noticed a few, however they will in no way spoil your enjoyment of the book.
Just a final note - I am currently "registered" on only two author pages and I read an average of 300 books per year for the last 53yrs. I think N.C. Reed is about to become the third author I will actually "follow" on the net. READ THE BOOK!!!!
This author has captured what few who enjoy freedom and understand, he brings the heartache, the trials and tribulations a soldier, sailor, marine and airman must endure so others can sleep at night in freedom in their own homes.
I would urge all old veterans to pick up this book to read, they will experience joys, tears and heartache remember from their time as warriors. Freedom is expensive more in lives than dollars, but few understand this who enjoy it, this author will give those who have NOT
seen the elephant some idea what it is like to give it all for those who do not know or understand...............
I will waited with baited breathe for the next book Parno's Destiny and as this book will not be satisfied till I finish it...................Ric Harrison "currahee"
This is a strong start to Mr. Reed’s fantasy trilogy.
The book is set in the distant future with several references to the ancient past and its technical marvels. In fact, these take the place of magic in this novel, possibly a nod to Arthur C. Clarke’s famous saying, “any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic”.
The plot follows the development of a wastrel prince into an inspirational leader; the book begins at a point where the main character is about to be kicked out of the capital for unspecified misdemeanors in the past. Parno McLeod is given a regiment of convicts and is tasked into turning them into soldiers; think Foreign Legion here. We follow his progress in this enterprise which ultimately results in a last stand defence of a strategic gap against an overwhelming force from a huge, aggressive Empire.
This is a highly enjoyable read. There is no indication when the next book will be out in the author’s postscript but I do hope it will be soon.
The author does a great job of developing characters and then creating emotional depth. This is an all around very enjoyable read.
