For starters be warned Andy Paloquin has written for us not a book, but a tome and it is one of the best and most thrilling dark epic fantasy books I have ever read, in fact I ended up reading day and night unable to put this very exciting and touching book down. Aravon and his special hand picked team are battling to bring about peace to Fehl which is being attacked by the barbarians known as Eirdkilrs, who are brutal and savage and out to kill all who they come across. However it seems that th ...more

Battle for Peace is a titan of a book! Yes, partly because it’s long, but most because it’s awesome! Every single page of this book is worth it, and I was sad when the book ended. I just want more! This story is wonderfully written so you can see the scenes play out as if it were a movie. The blood and gore of battle, the fear of losing friends and comrades, the quiet when the battle is done. The world is intricate, as is the lore. And the characters are shining stars! Even though they are actua ...more

I'm not a great reader of military fantasy, so can't really comment on the authenticity of the battle scenes and tactical matters, but to this unschooled reader it all had the ring of truth. Certainly one could hear the screams, taste the blood, feel the dragging mud... as well as some truly awesome battles, we see the further development of the little band of brothers and get a little subtle schooling about parenting. The best fiction always has some normative or moral aspect, and Peloquin gets ...more

Steller! This is the second book in The Silent Champions series and like the first book it had me up reading most the night and the next few days, it's a long one. Captain Aravon is trying to win a battle for his prince and kingdom that seems to be against impossible odds. There's not enough men to help so he enlist a rival clan and the terrane is so impossible to overcome, the enemy is everywhere. A plan too impossible to execute? The depth and personality of each character is powerful, the bat ...more

Oh my Wow! What an excellent book. It's so tense. Had to make myself slow down as this is an ARC and needed to focus but I wanted to rush through it. The story, the emotion, the characters are so easy to relate to and are fascinating as we learn more about them. The battles, the tactics, the history so interesting.

This book is even bigger and better than the last one. the fighting more frantic and at the same time a hint to the enemies start clearing out. The war claims another gut wrenching victim more and more of the secrets crack the heroes. After all being dead while alive is not so easy.

Overall rating: 5

Book two of this epic series left me weak and exhausted! The emotions that dripped from these pages were relentless with extreme highs and the lowest of lows. The brilliant attention to detail this author takes during heavy battles immerses you completely. The camaraderie exhibited by these characters depict the spirit of true warriors. The blood queen is the epitome of evil. Battle books have never been my go to read...until this author opened my eyes. A hearty recommend. All m

Good god, this certainly knows how to write a good epic fantasy that’s for sure. Intrigue, suspense and action all the way through. You just cannot put it down. I hope this series goes on and on and on, it’s that good. Roll on book three. Highly recommended.

This book was another page turner. We're introduced to new villains and the main characters are further built up. Specifically Belthar, who was involved in some sort of underworld… The main villain was well developed but not who you think she would be. This one pulled on all of my emotions. Well written and fun to read.

Unfortunately, I didn't read the first book in this series, and that was OK. I could easily follow the thread of the story, but there is also lots of background and underlying meaning that I would have grasped better if I had read part 1 first. It certainly helps with identifying the good, the bad and the truly evil tribes and factions that populate the book. And since this is a military fantasy with a lot of fighting, it is most interesting to know the difference between friend and for. I'm hap ...more

Absolutely Fabulous! This one kept me up way to late! Non-stop action, mystery, politics, and genuine characters that you really care about. Somehow, no matter how impossible the task, Aravon’s squad finds a way to accomplish their mission. I can’t wait to see the Grim Reavers continue to pursue the Duke’s dream. Bring on book 3!

A thrilling adventure

I enjoyed reading this book and it kept me on the edge of my seat all the way to the end.
Great characters with realistic situations and lots of action and adventure.
Treachery and betrayal on all sides. Who is the traitor selling out the Prince lands and how much misery is still to come.
I look forward to more from this series 😁

Book 2 battle for peace

Book 2 was a fun read and had errors throughout. I enjoyed book 2 and the plot and characters have developed well. There were some predictable twists and surprises, but overall were exciting. I look forward to the next book.

Facing their first active battle as a fully functional unit,
the Grim Reavers must deal with treachery, over-whelming
odds and terrifying opponents.
Using every bit of his own ingenuity and the amazing skills
of his team, Aravon takes on the enemy.
What a story !!
Enjoy !!

A thrilling second book in this military fantasy series about a band of warriors, sworn to do all they can to stop their countries being overrun.

I am, first and foremost, a storyteller and an artist--words are my palette. Fantasy is my genre of choice, and I love to explore the darker side of human nature through the filter of fantasy heroes, villains, and everything in between. I'm also a freelance writer, a book lover, and a guy who just loves to meet new people and spend hours talking about my fascination for the worlds I encounter in t ...more
