Book Description

Note: the character is in the military; contains some military-grade swearing

Izramith Ezmi is many things: a member of the feared, all-female Hedron guards, a war veteran recently returned from a pointless and bloody mission, and impatient, angry and above all, lonely. With her contract about to run out, she may be on her way to becoming a ruthless mercenary, since what she really wants--becoming a mother--is out of the question. Her family carries a gene that causes deeply malicious madness. Her nephew was born with it and her useless sister has left him in the care of an institute. A baby. Two days old.

She wants to ask her uncle, himself born with the condition, if he can do anything for the boy. But her uncle and his band of mad outcasts have gone missing, rumoured to be on the world of Ceren.

So Izramith takes another hired-gun contract in Barresh which is a city-state on Ceren. The job is to provide security at a high-profile wedding. Simple and straight-forward, right? No crawling in mud, no shoot-outs, no mangled bodies and blood-drenched soil. And meanwhile, she can try to find her uncle.

Except he isn't there, and the job isn't simple. Izramith and her team discover evidence of an extensive spying ring. Who is spying and why? The dictatorship of the neighbouring nation of Miran has plenty of reasons to dislike Barresh, and the city has a large group of people disgruntled with the pace of recent reforms. But most importantly, people have gone missing from the streets of Barresh for years. No one has cared much, because they were from disenfranchised groups, but Izramith sees the link with her uncle's disappearance, and with the spying ring, and knows that the security of the entire city is severely compromised.

Postponing the wedding would be an admission of defeat, so it's time for desperate measures. Izramith leads a small team in what has to go down as the most hare-brained mission to ever be undertaken in the universe. Much is at stake: peace, the lives of her uncle and her nephew, and her own.

4.0 out of 5 stars Soldier's Duty Review 14 May 2014
By starshine - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I give Soldier's Duty a 4. The author has a good plot line, but there are so many different "people" groups in the series that the reader gets confused. Characters are not as well developed as I expect in a novel, series, of this length. There are a number of typos and extra words in the text that a final edit should have caught.

Being a highly disciplined soldier was all she thought life offered her. However once she returned from her duties in another worlds devastating war her duties as airport guard no longer seemed so great. After difficulties adjusting back to her old life she had to make a decision about the rest of her life. Choosing a path that even her highest superior advises against she begins a journey that will lead her to a into the greatest future imaginable. A great ending to this trilogy and a must read for fans of this author!
