The lost Regiment series is a fabulous story set in the days of the American Civil War. It is basically the Civil War meets Planet of the Apes. It is one of those refreshing stories that no one has done before or since. The writing style is smooth and easy to understand, and the plot moves just right. A great series is one where the reader gets to grow with the characters and this one does just that.
I love William Forstchen and have praised his Lost Regiment series but this one is just not up to his usual standards. It felt as if the writer was tired of his world at last. The characters were thin and the story took some weary turns. He's still a good writer but his own normally high bar condemns this book to a forgettable piece of the series. Clearly, the Lost Regiment's story is over.
After he took the Lost Regiment series to a kind of conclusion, Forstchen tried to "reboot" the series by introducing more villains from the south. It wasn't as good, I don't think. You can't capture lightning in a bottle twice. I enjoyed it, but the first series is really where the great stuff is to me.
More of a re-boot of the Lost regiment series, it isn't as successful as the previous books. Not really worth the time, as the author seems to be done with the world.

Great story and extension of the series. A pity there are no more, would love to follow this into the future.
This did not suck me in like the rest of the series. :-(
come on Forstchen why is the next book taking decades?!?
