Publisher's Summary

Abandoned and cut off from friendly lines, Stiger takes the fight to the enemy!

A nobleman from an infamous family, an imperial legionary officer, a fighter, and a right proper bastard of a man...

Captain Ben Stiger captured Castle Vrell and rid it of a minion of a dark god. Now he finds himself cut off from the empire, with a hostile rebel army marching on the legion's fortress where they guard the entrance to Vrell Valley. It is not in Stiger's nature to simply wait for the enemy. Badly outnumbered and facing odds greater than 20 to one, he sets out to impede the enemy's advance and show them the steel that the legions are made of.

To help him on his way he has the services of his friend, Eli, one of the last remaining elven rangers. As if matters could not get worse, an army of dwarves is preparing to retake Castle Vrell, a sacred place they name Grata'Kor.

There are forces at play greater than Stiger can imagine. To survive he must contend with not only a well-supported rebel army but also a hostile dwarven nation intent on fulfilling a mysterious prophecy that has the potential to shatter the world and bring ruin to the empire.

The battle to save the empire and the world continues in this action-packed adventure.

better and better

Great new series, combining a fictional Roman war with Fantasy. The first book was good, but a bit slow to develop. The author needed time to develop his characters and kills a few off in the action packed second book.

books should be combined.
the story is fascinating however. he truly has a way with battle fantasy without being overly cruel or gore stuck. also Steven brand is an amazing narrarator

Great new melding of two of my favorite genres.

As a big fan of Douglas Jackson's "Hero of Rome" etc and the occasional fantasy romp I was pleased with the detailed look at a new concept.. a Roman legionary surrounded by elves, dwarves, and magic!

Excellent excallent

Really excellent book I can't wait for the next one. Great story I usually don't like magic added in but this was so interesting and very well written. I can't wait to see what is in store for the Tigers.

Swords, Sorcery, Elves, Dwarves, and great battles

Ive read almost every book from this author and if you like this type of good vs evil story you will love these books. I found myself openly cheering for Stiger . Great characters, conflicts, and detailed battles that kept you on the edge of your seat.

Fast-moving Fantasy With Claws!

This series is fast nestling nicely into my “guilty pleasures” category. I am a bit disappointed to see that it hasn’t managed to appeal to greater numbers but I can understand that a fantasy / military history cross-over is not going to appeal to the widest audience. This is however great fun and the second book very much ups the ante from the previous one in terms of non-stop action. Most of the book is spent describing a fabulous fighting retreat by the Tigers which I found very compelling listening.

While there is also a strong fantasy element though that doesn't dominate the action. The book also includes some important scene setting for what promises to be one almighty battle in the next book. The Dwarves are threatening, but for which side is the key question! Either way in this one the action comes thick and fast and it’s all very well narrated by Steven Brand, I think this fast pace within the story line is very well suited to his narration style.

So yes as I mentioned in my review of the opening book this series is a quirky one but if you feel like you want to try something fast-paced and full of action this series feels like a reasonable place to start. I will be there pretty much as soon as the next one is released!

great reads but only half a book

as with all of Marc Alan edelheits books it's a great listen. but what could be one book he turns in to 3 . purely for monetary reasons . this is how he churns out 3 a year.

exciting

really enjoyed, fans of scarrow cornwell etc will really enjoy. lots of characters growing as story progresses, still getting used to narrator but the detail of age and battle scenes are incredible.

Not as good as the first book, but still fabulous

My expectations after the first book were sky-high and while this one is paced a bit slower it still moves along so fast you wonder where 10 hours went. On to book 3!
