Format: Paperback
Galactic Warlord is the first in the Last Legionary quartet by Douglas Hill. It is a thrilling science fiction story, set far into the future, but so well written that you feel sure that it will happen one day. It is a very adventurous form of science fiction and the book gives you many surprises. It has a lot of violence, so definetly not for anyone under 11. All in all, it is a brilliant book, so if you want excitement, thrills and planet-hopping, look no further! (The other books in the series are: Deathwing over Veynaa, Day of the Starwind and Planet of the Warlord.)

Format: Paperback
I read this way back when I was at primary school then tracked it down and was hooked again as an adult. This is quality sci fi writing. The main character is very well written. The story is exciting and keeps you entertained all the way through. This may have been originally aimed at childrens/teens market but I feel it's so well written it's got a lot to offer adults too. The other novels in the series are equally good. There's the quadrilogy starting with this then "Deathwing Over Veynaa", "Day of the Starwind", "Planet of the Warlord" and there's also the prequel "Young Legionary" that tells the story of Kyle Randor's training and life before the Warlord attacked. Douglas Hills "Huntsman" books are also worth checking out (although not as good as the Last legionary series). I really hope these books get discovered by Hollywood and turned into a good, faithful movie adaptation.

Format: Hardcover
I first read this book a number of years ago, when I came across it at a jumble sale. I thought I'd give it a go, and in fact, it turned out to be a well-written, gripping and unique novel, that I always find an immensely enjoyable read. I'm glad to see that some of the four books in the quadrilogy are still avaliable - I have all four in one volume, but that version doesn't seem to be avaliable any more.
In the book, Keill Randor, one of the famed Legionaries of Moros, has discovered that his entire home planet has been destroyed. He travels space seeking vengeance on the sinister Warlord, who has secret plans to control the entire galaxy. Well worth a read.

haha - why does it say psychology at watford? I dont do that, anyways.....

I cant belive it, ive been trying to find this for hours. I remember this from primary and thought it was amazing, I can still remember 10 years ago when I read all these books. I can still remember the wolrds created by the writer, and it really had my young mind going. I would love to be able to find out the order in which the series go, abit more reasearch i think.

I wish I could remember the name of the other from childhood (something like the magic toolbox) - i will persevere.

But so glad i found this

Format: Paperback
Read if you:

Love science fiction monomyths done well
Relish a good revenge story, set in a wild uncaring universe
Dig martial arts and ray guns in zero-g

Avoid if you:
Can't stomach cardboard caricatures
Hate 60's era villains and cheesy dialogue
Start brain vomiting at simplistic writing.

Lines to Adore:

"He gave no hint or warning, did not tense or poise his body. He simply dropped, full-length, to one side. His right hand met the plasticrete, the arm rigid to take his weight. On the pivot of that hand, his body swung in a horizontal arc, legs scything. The crack of bone breaking was nearly drowned by Crask's shriek of pain"

Author: Douglas Hill-Male, Canadian and Literary Editor

Personal Bias: A defining book in my childhood, installing a lifelong love for science fiction. I'm keeping a tattered copy for my kids.
