Since Homer first sang the wrath of Achilles and the ancient Sumerians set down their tales of Gilgamesh, warriors, soldiers, and fighters have fascinated us; they are a part of every culture, every literary tradition, every g

I read this because of Gabaldon's "The custom of the army" and that's definitly a 5 star story. Exciting, funny and beautifully researched historical context.

The other stories were well-written but not that interesting (but that could have been me as I'm not a big fan of war-themed tales in general). They all had good story-lines but the writing lacked dynamic, perhaps because the characters were a bit flat. But still, alright for one-time-reading.

The only story I only skimmed through was the on

A great collection of short stories; The Pit in particular tugged at my heartstrings. It's what I've come to expect from this anthology series, and that's a good thing.

Diana Gabaldon's Lord John tale is what drew me to this book, but being who I am, and with her story as the final tale in the collection... yeah... I read them all. Lawrence Block's Clean Slate was dark, slightly chilling, and well written. I've never read Carrie Vaughn, but greatly enjoyed The Girls From Avenger - a nod to the women who gave all to their country in WWII. Robin Hobb's The Triumph was a bonus for me.

Nice diverse collection of stories!

It being an anthology, I liked some stories better than others.

Warriors started well in the first book, but trailed in 2 and 3. Skipped most of the stories after a few pages. Did not buy into the one told from the perspective of a dog. A warrior, yes, but not i would put in a collection of books.

The last story was interesting, if possibly implausible. The dog story, I could not read. The female killer story was really grasping at straws when it came to a "warrior" concept. Other stories are pretty forgettable.

The stories was ok. Some stand out like "Clean Slate" by Lawrence Block and "The Pit" by James Rollins. The others more blend.
