5.0 out of 5 stars The Praetorian Strikes Back...
Downloaded this ages ago because it was free and somehow missed it until now. Boy, did it have its revenge! Started reading and enjoyed the setting, flashbacks slightly irritating but could live with them, characters a little too perfect especially the women but author's privilege and all that...and it certainly was filling the time before my favourite TV show...

2.0 out of 5 stars disappointed
The story line had the potential to be very good, however the author needs to make up his mind as to what he is writing. Is this a badly written love story with poorly written encounters, or is it an above average silence fiction Space military adventure.
I found myself skipping over pages devoted to Jon's feelings about the princess. Without all this and a lot more...

5.0 out of 5 stars The Praetorian Strikes Back..., 30 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Last Praetorian (The Redemption Trilogy Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
Downloaded this ages ago because it was free and somehow missed it until now. Boy, did it have its revenge! Started reading and enjoyed the setting, flashbacks slightly irritating but could live with them, characters a little too perfect especially the women but author's privilege and all that...and it certainly was filling the time before my favourite TV show. Right?

Wrong.
Somehow, -and that's the magic of great action scenes, good pacing, characters you end up wanting to know more about (want Radec for my birthday) and a story arc that won't let go - I missed my TV show and five hours later looked up to find it was 2.30 in the morning. I'd been absorbed into this world without even realising by a writer I'd never heard of in a genre I usually avoid. Well done, Mike Smith, you have me completely and utterly hooked. Off to download the next 2!

4.0 out of 5 stars I really liked the whole series., 29 April 2014

I downloaded this as it was free and I was looking for Sci-fi that I hadn't read.

The story was a fantastical adventure with interesting characters. I even liked his portrayal of women!
The only reason it didn't get 5 stars was that, in some places, the storyline was too swash-buckling!

Found an interesting new author to watch and I can't wait for the next trilogy Revelations to be published.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sci-Fi meets Camelot, 10 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Last Praetorian (The Redemption Trilogy Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
OK lets start with the fact that I enjoyed the read.

I liked the Humour, the action and the Characters. The Creation of a new Roman Empire gives a firm foundation and instantly allows you to understand the rivalries and loyalties between the different groups.

We also have that developing white knight love theme.
