I'm trying to get round to a number of books that have been sitting on my bookshelf for years making me feel guilty. This is one such. I read one or two of Hill's Last Legionary Quartet many years ago and enjoyed them. This is a 1982 prequel collection of stories about the training of the legionary who was to become the last of his kind, published by Piccolo, a junior imprint of Gollancz..

One of my all time favorite authors and one of my Top 10 Book Series! Love this book!
I read this book in my early teens, and somehow remembered it every time I came across anything that sparked my interest in sci-fi, however I could never remember the title, or character names well enough to find it.

The book reminded me of some of Andre Norton's books for young adults. It is a fun read about an adolescent on a harsh planet who raise their children to be able to protect themselves. The goal of most is to young the Legion and serve as a mercenary to bring in income for the planet. The story is written in episodes taken along the journey to become a cadet.
This is one of my favorite series as a young adult, and rereading it, I love it just as much. This prequel is a set of stories showing how Keill Randor grows up to be the man he is in the Last Legionary quartet... a man guided by self-control and determination to do his part.
