5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant and complex 3rd book in the BL series
VERIFIED PURCHASE IN THE US
The writing in this series is more complex and interesting than the Star Crusades series. It takes a little longer to get into but the story is a classic. I've read the Ten Thousand historical novel before and the parallels are obvious. Xenophon is smart but not a super-hero. The richness of the world is epic in scope and the final battle...

1.0 out of 5 stars Not up to standard
Michael Thomas lost the plot with this series of books, it is definitely not upto the same standard as Star Crusades. This promises a lot at first but never delivers and for me it was just boring.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant and complex 3rd book in the BL series, 15 Nov 2012

The writing in this series is more complex and interesting than the Star Crusades series. It takes a little longer to get into but the story is a classic. I've read the Ten Thousand historical novel before and the parallels are obvious. Xenophon is smart but not a super-hero. The richness of the world is epic in scope and the final battle for Cunaxa reminds me of the Horus Heresy by GW. Great series and a great 3rd book.

Great read you are right there in the story. Some of it is improbable but still worth the time. Not quite a history lesson but interfaced very well

The Black Legion series is one not to be missed. Can be a bit heavy going at times, but the story and characters are superb. Brilliant adaptation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping, intelligent and full of action., 20 Nov 2012
This review is from: Warlords of Cunaxa (Star Legions Book 3) (Kindle Edition)
This is the third book in the Black Legion series. Having read the first two I was very much looking forward to this and wasted no time in reading it. It did not disappoint. Being a sci-fi account of the Ten Thousand, it closely follows the original Greek epic but is convincing as a futuristic tale of war, comradeship, greed, betrayal and xenophobia. This book follows the ten thousand as they reach Cunaxa, where they are involved in a momentous battle to decide the Emperor. It is very well written and the author clearly knows his Classics. I am now looking forward to the next book.
