A series that continues to entertain in exciting style. This Tiger is changing its stripes a little though. There is still plenty of the excellent military history vibe within it as Stiger’s Legion engages in battles and skirmishes based on the Roman legions. However, as this series develops the fantasy side is taking a much stronger hold and this now feels like something more approaching epic fantasy of a classic flavour.
For me as someone who very much enjoys both military history and fantasy this series really does appeal and deliver great entertainment. I can see why it’s a bit of a niche market but I’d recommend it to anyone who enjoys both genres as a diversion well worth taking.

This has turned out to be another keeper! I must admit that I'm extremely frugal with my five star ratings and during the month of November I've used them twice! My keeper shelf overfloweth, Both authors have made and surpassed the water mark of fantasy. MarkAlan Edelheit did not soften any action as his descriptions of a battle and all that caused it, graphically are shown. If this had been all there was to the book, it would have just another ten hours of blood and guts, no where close to a Five. He paints the characters full of humanity's foibles and the interaction between them is definitive and charges the book. Based on the Roman Legions of yore, I was stunned when our Roman leader finds that Rome was not old wives tales but had actually existed! That's only one of many subtle signals the author gives so that I keep waiting for the other shoe to drop. Steven Brand is a new narrator to me so I was pleasantly surprised at the acumen and depth he brings to the book. He definately rated a five without any doubt at all! Tiger's Fate is an excellent book, well read. What more matters?

This series keeps me on the edge of my seat. I listen in the car and find myself looking for excuses to drive around.
