Now in mass market, the first novel in the thrilling series of epic storytelling and adventure reminiscent of J.R.R. Tolkien and Bernard Cornwell...where musket and cannon, bow and arrow, and magic and diplomacy all wield power in an empire teetering on the brink of war.

In this world, Konowa Swift Dragon, former commander of the Empire's elite Iron Elves, is anything but ordinary. He's murdered a Viceroy, been court-martialed, seen his beloved regiment disbanded, and finally been banished in disgrace to the one place he despises the most--the forest. All he wants is to be left alone with his misery...but for Konowa, nothing is ever that simple. Brimming with high adventure and intrigue, this is "a splendid read for fans of both science fiction and fantasy military adventure. Highly recommended" ( Library Journal ).

I got halfway through, and realized that I could not recall what had happened previously in the book. It was that boring. Felt like it was mostly page after page of the author describing nothing. I generally don't leave things unfinished, but this book I had no problem returning half read.

Really 3.5. I liked it well enough to go on to the next 2 books in this series, but tho enjoyable I can't say it's memorable.

Great - This seemingly civil war inspired fantasy novel surprised me. I've long been a fan of classic fantasy fiction (i.e. medieval fantasy fiction). The characters feel real and the story is gripping. Totally enjoyable for any fantasy lover.
