I found the military focus to be mostly accurate; the smaller details such as dialogue and interactions were a nice touch. I also enjoyed the concept of political interference to be well handled, something also drawn from the Roman influence I believe. The setting is low magic, allowing Edelheit to really focus on the melee combat and high lethality of warfare. Fans of the early Black Company novels should find themselves enjoying this book.
I'm not well-versed in Roman history but I don't think Edelheit drew on it heavily enough to give the book more than a base coat. The writing was serviceable but with many grammar errors, none of which were enough to impact my enjoyment. I also found the protagonist rather bland and uninteresting- I would like to see more development and "screen time" with other members of the company. I usually feel that limited world building is a good thing, especially for up-and-coming writers, but in this case it was almost none existent. I could tell you little more about the setting other than that the Empire is at war with someone in the north and combating a rebellion in the south (where the book takes place).
I read this book using Kindle's "borrowing" feature; however I enjoyed it enough that I intend to purchase it and the sequel, when it arrives.
-Good military fantasy.
-Well written action.
-Plot wraps up while preparing you for the sequel.
-Needs more character development.
-Setting and world needs more development.
From an editing standpoint the author has done very well, and I don't recall any glaring instances of poor spelling, grammar, or typos. I'm sure there must be some, but I didn't pick up on any.
I have now read both of the books in the series so far, and will most definitely get the next one as soon as it comes out.
So buy this one, so Mr. Edelheit will keep working on the next one. If you haven't read any of his work before, then you should buy the first book in the series before reading this one, as it does follow in story and time from the original first book, and will make this one more enjoyable.
