Publisher's Summary

The Narthani, a militant realm who believe their manifest destiny is to rule the entire planet, Anyar, plan to absorb Caedellium into their empire and crush any resistance. Yozef Kolsko (a.k.a. Joe Colsco) works to find ways to increase the chances of resistance to the Narthani's planned conquest.
Complicating his life is attraction to a brilliant daughter of an island leader, and his uncertainty of his own mind, hers, or intricacies of Caedellium customs.
Despite his desire to devote himself to introducing new knowledge, Yozef is drawn more and more into developing weapons and giving tactical and strategic advice - things he knows he's unqualified to give. The enemy is coming. The odds seem overwhelming, and it will take all Yozef can do, the courage of his new people, and luck, to survive.

Tedious

A lesson in how to spin out very little story to the maximum length possible would sum up this book. Incredibly boring battles, clumsy dialogue and one of the worst bedroom scenes I've come across for some time. I could go on but have no desire to induce the same levels of boredom as the author.
I won't be buying the third book because I really couldn't care less what happens to any of the characters and can't bear to sit through another brain numbing experience.

Brilliant

Usually when you get a trilogy of books the middle one is the poorest one this one is better than the first I hope this continues in the third one which I am deafly going to listening to
