4.0 out of 5 stars Death this Day 13 July 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Read the authors first book and liked it, thought I'd give this a go. First short story I've bought but ok for value and the story was short and sweet. Just bought the guys second book and found the first chapter had really good pace and looking forward to the rest of it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Death this day, a really good short story 16 Nov. 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Really liked this short story. I read the author's first book call The Seige (which I would also recommend) and have just bought his second roman book The Imperial Banner, so thought I would also check this out. The plot is quick paced, and there is good action. Characterisation is difficult in a short story, but the characters who appear in this story are interesting and involving. In fact, the main character Serenus appears in the Seige as an older soldier. Nice continuity! Read this on my phone on the Tube, and helped a boring commute pass more enjoyably!
