"I received a free copy from the author. I had the option of reviewing or not."

It's graduation day and Randell is excited being a new Militiaman. A guardian for his shire. Ready and willing to stand against any attack by orcs.
It's been years since the last one and it is almost like being prepared for something that will never happen.
So naturally, the very next day...
Now comes the fear. It can be seen in the faces of the newly graduated, just as it is in the lined faces of the of those who fought

This novella is a little bit slow in getting stated but once it does it races forward at breakneck pace until the final pages. In concept, it is a rather simple coming of age tale in which a young man who lost his parents to orcs has to deal with the reality of fulfilling his dreams of vengeance.

I haven’t read the other books set in this world, but it didn’t stop me from enjoying this stand-alone novella. The author has created a believable world and strong characters. It’s pacy but has enough depth to get you hooked. Recommended.

This is a good fantasy novel. Military story about humans and orcs. I don’t usually read novellas but I’m glad I read this one. I real got into this and couldn’t put it down. Recommended read.

The Militiaman of Garthset is set in the same world as The Andor. In this novella, Randell's preconceived notions and a desire for revenge come face to face with harsh reality. His enlightenment comes at a steep price -- and he might not be the only one to pay it. Lots of action and suspense. Good read.

For those who want to know: This one has violence.

Mark’s passion for writing began in junior high. Encouraged by his teachers, including now best-selling author Sharon Draper, his eighth grade English teacher, he wrote short stories, dystopian poetry, and even attempted a novel heavily inspired by The Hobbit.
