Stigers Tigers Chronicles of an Imperial Legionary Officer #1

Empt fight bandits rebels and an agent of an evil god His companions on this journey of discovery and adventure are one of the few remaining elven rangers and a paladin on a uest for the High Father The battle to save the empire and the world begins here in the first book of this exciting new series If Bernard Cornwell wrote a DD campaign about a legionary I wanted to like this but the ending and the fantasy elements didn t work for me The buildup of the first couple hundred pages just didn t have enough of a payoff and the main character Stiger plays too small a role in the resolution The opening felt like a transplanted Richard Sharpe Story and the ending like a summary of someone s RPG weekendThat said the story was short and entertaining and I didn t feel like giving up on it As a mashup genre novel it works better than others I ve read from bigger names and traditional publishers Kudos to the author in that regardIf you like hybrid genre fiction this will be worth a try but if you prefer historical or literary reading look elsewhere

The empire has endured many centuries but is now threatened by multiple wars and a major rebellion in the South A nobleman from an infamous family imperial legionary officer fighter and a right proper bastard of a man Captain Ben Stiger finds himself reassigned from a crack legion to the rebellion s Welll huha good bookWhat we got here is a sort of historical fictionfantasy book We re looking at a world with a version of the Roman Legionnaires facing off with the barbarians at the edges of the Empire We seem to be nearing the end of the Empire s life Our hero Stiger is from a leading family but has a kind of black mark against his name so to speakThe story here is of him taking a slovenly undisciplined group of legionnaires and turning them completely aroundI liked this one Forgive the lack of detail but any would get into a sort of extended synopsis and they d be spoilers there You don t want spoilers I ve already purchased the next in this series and plan to fit it into my currently reading ueueWhen I own books they always end up waiting for me to finish library booksRecommended enjoy

    I loved the idea of adding traditional Fantasy elements in to a story about a Roman solder But after just a few chapters I realized it is of traditional fantasy story with just a bit of Roman elements added in But if you don't over think it it is an enjoyable and fast paced read It is a pretty short book though I finished book 1 in just a few hours and am about half way done with book 2 all in 1 day

    If Bernard Cornwell wrote a DD campaign about a legionary I wanted to like this but the ending and the fantasy elements didn’t work for me The buildup of the first couple hundred pages just didn’t have enough of a payoff and the main character Stiger plays too small a role in the resolution The opening felt like a transplanted Richard S
