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.

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!

Great Story

in so many books such as this we see loss throughout and hardship, this book however masterfully set the stage for epic battles to come in the next books while giving the reader the ability to feel the pride the author is putting in the the material as well as smile a bit.... Cant wait to move on to the next. It's been a while since I have listened/read a book that makes me not want to set the series down, this series does just that.

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.
