4.0 out of 5 stars There was so much action happening so fast that I felt like I couldn't get my bearings, 1 July 2014
This review is from: Empire under siege: The Adarna chronicles - Book 1 (Kindle Edition)
*slight spoiling ahead*

In the first couple of chapters, I wasn't quite sure what to make of the book. Right from the start, it drops us into a large battle. There was so much action happening so fast that I felt like I couldn't get my bearings. I stuck with the book because the writing was good and I liked the characters. I'm glad I did.

Once the action slows a bit, and I was given a chance to see the characters a bit more, I actually came to think that starting in the midst of the battle was perfect. After that, the characters have to deal with the political ramifications of the fight, but also the emotional ones. The character I enjoyed most was Conlan.

I think, perhaps, the thing that most impressed me about the book was the authenticity of the interactions among the soldiers. I was a soldier, and the relationships rang largely true, particularly the observations about how we never really know what's going on within another person's mind, not even when we see them in the midst of combat.

The book definitely has me interested to see what happens next, and I fully intend to keep reading.
