Justin 7 levels probably alludes to their hell. Dante's Inferno had 9 circles of hell. And yes, i'm looking for their next book too!

The good: You know how you feel when you buy a can of Pringles*? You know its not haute cuisine, but by god you're gonna enjoy it. That was how I felt about this. It was predictable, but still a good ride. Sort of wrapping up the first story arc with a satisfying epic battle and some majorly creepy bad guys (the reveal of the Minion critter was actually pretty good). All told, I think I dig this military fantasy thing.

The bad: Much like infomercials, theres a lot of "But wait! Theres more!" You

It's the weakest of the series but still a good read.

The roman military fiction set in a fantasy world thing is as fun as ever. Problem is that in order to reach that part you'll have to trudge through a very lengthy exposition dump which eats up approximately the first fourth of the book. It's for the sake of world building and setting up things to come but as a result this book is a very slow starter.

After it's done it's share of educational tourism it gets back to it's strengths, warfare, and

It takes a legion to make a legend.

Brave, tough, selfless, disciplined, intelligent, driven by honor, duty, friendship, and a higher purpose. That is the description of these legion soldiers. With each book, their battles become even more amazingly, complex and hard fought. Through it all, Steiger the Tiger, is the perfect, imperfect man and leader. This was by far my favorite book of the series as the author brings all the factions together to focus on the battle to save their world. All the p

The major character suffers through a series of battles he could not have anticipated. Allies not sharing needed information is common and in this instance can be fatal. The novel is full of the characters trying to not break under incredible pressures. It stays tense from the first to the last page.

It's easily one of the best stories that I've read about the interactions between the various mythical races, as well with humans. If you've read the previous books, I don't need to tell you that the

This was my second read of this and the other novels as a precursor to reading the new novel (Fort Covenant). As always, I am caught up in the world of Stiger and his legionnaires. At 71 years old, I hope I can last long enough to see the series to an end. If not, the tale gives me something to think about as I cross over to the other side.

Really excellent series

Book 3 of the series finds dwarves, elves, and gnomes working together to fight evil. Like Tolkien's Lord of the rings series, a fated battle approaches. Add in time travel and a surprise ending for a well executed cliffhanger. There's got to be another book to this series!!

Very enjoyable, with a cliff hanger of twist.

Battles between a motley collection of humans, elves, dwarves and orcs - what more could you want? This book was a very enjoyable read, with an unexpected twist at the end. Will Stiger escape? Yes, of course he will but that story is for Book 4 and I cannot wait.

This series

Clearly a well conceived multi book arc. I'm sold. Although I'd rather buy one larger book than three titles that are really novellas in length, either that or I'm reading faster! Good character development without boring you to tears, and solid nod to Roman warfare.

A great read!

I really enjoyed this book. In fact I have read all three of the Stiger books in the last two days. In my opinion that is the sign of a good story - when you just immerse yourself in it and can’t stop reading. I am really looking forward to Book 4 and will get the prequels to tide me over.

Inventive Series!!!!!

This is a wonderful story which I now find myself addicted to. Sadly I am also locked into the purgatory that is the wait for the next episode! Read this tale. You will be glad you did.

Great book

Action, plot, interesting characters.. And loved the twist at the end. The author has once again done a great job with advancing the story and characters... Loving every part of this epic fantasy

Roman Legions, Elves, Dwarves, Gnomes, Paladins, and minions of an evil God, what more can you want? Oh yeah, did I mention time travel too?? It's a rollicking action story with many diverse elements woven into a great story!! My biggest quibble is the next installment isn't out yet.

This was a much better read than Book 2. Looking forward to Book 4. This book kept my attention most of the time, the last few chapters were exciting. I would have liked to have had the Dwarfs more involved in the last battles, interacting with the legionaires.

Lots of action

Wow. Lots happens & now I have to wait until the next book is written for the cliffhanger to be resolved, I hope. All of the characters continue to develop & are very interesting. I would like to know more about this world.

Roman legions and orcs! What's not to like!😀

If you like action this book is a goldmine! I burned through all of the first three books in a flash. They are that good! If you want to learn how a legion fought and you love dragons and elves then this book is for you!

Not the best...

Non stop action and pending doom get old. Edelheit should put some effort into character development and a little less on thrust and parry.
