Full Review originally at Fantasy Book Critic

OVERVIEW/ANALYSIS: Rogues Of The Black Fury by Travis Heermann was a book that attracted my attention for a couple of reasons namely that it seemed to be a standalone and the blurbs promised a dark adventure ride. It seems the first reason is partly wrong and the second one is absolutely correct.

The story is set in a secondary fantasy world wherein two nations Cusca and Fartha have been warring with each other for generations and now are in an uncomf

A military fantasy adventure in the tradition of The Black Company , albeit far less dark and gritty, Rogues of the Black Fury was a very entertaining read. The story is set in a secondary world where two large and powerful nations face each other in a conflict born of a religious dispute, which enables many parallels to be drawn to the struggles between Christianity and Islam. It's a book with familiar elements, but done in such a way that it didn't feel stale and was never boring.

First, let me say that “Rogues” is lot of fun. Plus, as a woman, I was happy to see a strong female lead character - this woman is seriously bada**! Add that to the swoon factor of the various other male characters, and this book is a winner! But don’t let the action/fun factor fool you – there is some serious commentary about society lurking just beneath the surface. However, if you’re not in the mood for deep thinking and just want a fast-paced, well-written story for your summer reading, “Rog ...more

I won this book on First Reads and I'm so glad that I did! To be honest, I really am a very biased person so I tend to do a lot of judging just based on looks. But I read the summary which really interested me so I just had to give it a try.
The characters, plot, action, and everything was just WONDERFUL! I'm looking forward to more books from him!

Fun- with just enough military tradition to be comforting.

This is possibly my best read, so far, from Travis. I have become a trusted fan. I couldn't stop until I was finished. A fast-paced adventure, with great characters and plots, wit a lot of vivid action. A story of loyalty, bravery and honour. I also like the shorter chapters which keep you very much engaged. I am wondering now will there be a sequel? The last words have left a door open. I just had a great, short, weekend as I was just sinking it in. Am not going into the details, just read it! ...more

I won this book through the Goodreads First Reads program in exchange for an unbiased review. While my fantasy preferences tend to be more towards magic than gunpower, the premise was interesting enough for me to give this novel a try.

The story begins with the abduction of the daughter of one of the militaristic noble houses, but who is behind it? This premise really caught my interest, I enjoy the political machinations of powerful families, ever since I read Dune back in high school. But this

Disclaimer: I won this book in a first-reads giveaway.

Now that I'm done with that, onto the review.

The story is pretty good, and the plot moves very quickly, though not too quickly. The characters were decent, though they could have stood to be a little bit better fleshed out. I did very much like the setting, even though the Farthi seemed a bit too much like stereotypical Muslims. I did have a hard time picturing some things in my head though, especially the temple the climax takes place in (sp

Ever want to know what modern day block ops specialist would be like back in the days of sail and sword? This excellent book had me craving for more well before I finished it. Alas I know not if the author plans to do more like this but his other works are just as delightful to read such as the Ronin trilogy.
