Publisher's Summary

The sixth instalment of the award-winning Chronicles of an Imperial Legionary Officer series.

Ben Stiger, Legate of the Lost Thirteenth Legion, a nobleman from an infamous family, and born fighter, has defeated the enemy army before Lorium and raised the siege of the city. Mortally wounded and dying, the emperor has made Stiger his heir, but in name only. The senate and the church must confirm and anoint him. Will they want a Stiger on the throne? Or will they choose someone else? 

Hundreds of miles away, the Cyphan Confederacy’s armies are marching along the coast, moving inexorably toward the capital, leaving a swath of destruction in their wake. To save the empire, Stiger must leave his army behind, travel to the capital, and confront his father, who is in command of the legions defending Mal’Zeel. Stiger must secure his throne, for it is his destiny and burden to bear. Another must not be allowed to claim the crown of wreaths and the curule chair. For should that come to pass, everything Stiger has worked toward will be lost, and darkness, like a shadowy veil, will forever fall over the world of Istros. 

Stiger has finally accepted the mantle of Champion for his god, the High Father. He has come to accept being made emperor, a job he never wanted, and being seen by his men as gods blessed. But has he truly been blessed? Or has Stiger been cursed to a terrible destiny? 

The final battle to save the empire and the world has begun!

Rudimentary, Repetitive, Stagnant

The author’s writing and Brand’s narration are rudimentary at best. Edelheit repeats Stiger’s every thought and action ad nauseam. Additionally, he makes the fatal flaw of repeating the attributives “he said”, “she said” in every sentence, which is extremely distracting and annoying to audiobook listeners. What’s worse is Brand’s decision to annunciate the attributives with enthusiasm, which makes them far more distracting and annoying. His narration in general is also poorly executed. Brand’s monotone voice is actually quite pleasing; however, he doesn’t have the skills to differentiate between character voices, which would be acceptable if those characters weren’t gruff warriors, elves, orcs, dragons, old wizards, et cetera.
A disappointing story... 2.5 stars.

Series has gone down the toilet

Stiger is now the top dog but the story twist off into a confusing jumble of Eric’s going nowhere. Elf addition is still a dumb distraction. Sadly a great series has gone off the cliff

Loved the book

This series was very well written. If movies and tv series did good writing justice I would recommend this series to be made into one. I would love to see accurate Roman formations on the big screen.

Overwhelming

This book brings Stiger back home. His homecoming is less than he desired, but about what he feared.

He must more fully grasp the entire story that he has only had parts of and come to grips with his role in the fate of his empire and his world. He must develop his ability to lead and inspire his men and overcome the odds against them.

This book is fast paced. It does bring out some things that have happened in the past that are not fully explained, but I expect they will be built out in the future.

Outstanding writing and exceptional narration.

5 hours in..

5 hours in and I can’t help but ask is this going anywhere? Stiger hasn’t even made it to the capital yet. Only one fight that kinda meh and that took 3 hours to get to. Get to the point man, a war is a brewing and the new emperor is moaning on how life isn’t fair his first love died 5 years ago

An Empire Without End

I love this series. The mix of high fantasy and Rome work so well. Each book adds to the authors world. Steven does another amazing job at narrating the story.

I like the balance this book is setting up. Marc keeps the action going while showing that Stiger will not be solve every problem with a sword. I hope to see more political intrigue. the surprises in this book are introduced well and make sense to the story. I wonder where this story will go.

my 2 favorite lines:
"An Empire without End", and "Bloody Gnomes"

Another great addition to the series.

I lost some sleep so as to finish this book as fast as I could. In some ways this book is a bit like the older books in the series with more small unit tactics but with newer bigger problems.

2022

another excellent book by Marc and not in the direction I expected, Stephen brand gives another great performance. the fight in brothel is intense, the evil at worst is human, glad to see more gnome characters, and humour between stigers familia continues, the cliffhanger is also totally unexpected. the bad news, 2022.
