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.
This entertaining military fantasy is centered around Captain Stiger and is modelled on a fictitious Empire which is very reminiscent of ancient Rome and its legions.
Thankfully, the book is told mainly from Stiger’s perspective rather than having multiple POVs which always destroy continuity. It is very much a scene setter, introducing the main characters and the setting. One does need a little patience as there is little world building and several aspects of both the world and of the personal background to Stiger are mentioned without further reference.
I am assuming that all of these and more will be revealed by the author in future instalments in the series; this is one of the reasons why I will definitely by purchasing the next book when it comes out as the scene setter is strong enough that I want to discover more about Stiger and his world.
The narrative flows well, Stiger the character is solid if a little inconsistent (he goes from ice cold commander to berserk fury at the drop of a hat) and again I suspect that the author will solidify the commander in later instalments. Although there is a little magic, it is muted and unobtrusive. The plot develops very satisfactorily and the setting is intriguing and becoming quite epic.
I am very much looking forward to the next book.
