I received a copy of Casualties of War in exchange for my review. This is an intermediary story between A Victory That Counts and Ordered Restored.

In the aftermath of the events of the attack in Victory That Counts, Liana is brought up on her actions, particularly related to the use of Vampire blood on the Pandurs. Her sense of victory is shortly quashed when she learns that her once faithful guard, turned new breed vampire, Spanu, has kidnapped Jesse. Without meaning to, Liana gets stressed out, and knowing that the new-breeds would want to use her love for Jesse as leverage, she allows Max to shatter another of her beliefs regarding how vampire powers affect the Little Council.

As with the other 3 books of The Impaler Legacy that I've read, I've been shocked by the depth that Visan manages to get to in such a short word count. This isn't a long story (though it is an important part of the series), but the depth really makes you think that it is longer.

There are no characters added to the series in Casualties of War, which is quite often the down fall for short stories (as in introducing too many characters). At this point in the story it feels as if I know Liana, Max and even General Nour, which makes this addition to the story quite shocking (poor Liana!) and it means that not a lot of time is needed to introduce the characters.

This is definitely a series that needs to be read in its entirety, if you read them as stand alone stories then they just wouldn't work!

5.0 out of 5 stars Casualties of War #2.5 21 Dec. 2013
By Diana Elena - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This story continues the second novella of The Impaler Legacy Series.
Captain Nour doesn't hesitate to tell Liana after the big fight that he doesn't agree with the tough decisions she had to make to keep her troop safe, but our heroine is determined not to be intimidated by his lecture. She knows she must do everything she can to fulfill their mission before other lives are destroyed.

Max is again her adviser and together they try to find a new plan of action, to be one step ahead of their enemies. During the discussion, Spânu betrays them and kidnaps Jesse by helicopter. All Liana's hopes to succeed collapse and she is capable to sacrifice them all and the whole operation to save her boyfriend. Sensing the danger, Max has a solution and uses it to calm her down, even if it is a risk and also a method Little Council wouldn't agree nor understand.

You MUST read this story before you start the third part of the series, Order Restored, because it contains precious, vital information to understand the plot. I loved this one very much, despite the bad news I encountered about my favorite characters. This is the moment when the stakes are highest and every decision can make them win or lose the battle.
I was shocked and sad to find out that Spânu turned against them and Jesse's life was now at risk. It seems that Liana cannot rest for one second, because at her every turn comes another test to measure her strength. Can she overcome this one and save her love and the others?

5.0 out of 5 stars Real Cliffhanger! 16 Dec. 2013
By Alyssa G. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
After I finished this book, I moved on to book 2.5 Casualities of War. I feel like book 1.5 filled me in on parts that I missed, but I fill like book 2.5 left me with a cliffhanger wanting to see what happens to Jesse! I almost feel like I could've skipped book 2 and just read book 2.5. Still an awesome series that I'll have to continue reading to find out if that "happily ever after" ending happens!
5.0 out of 5 stars Will have you begging for more! 13 Nov. 2013
By T. Graczykowski - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This short story continues where A Victory that Counts leaves off. Liana is debriefed by Captain Nour. Again it is a wonderful short story, just right for an hour of reading. It keeps your attention and is well written. It has a cliffhanger that leaves you craving more. I can't wait for the next book.
5.0 out of 5 stars Can't wait for the follow up! 26 Oct. 2013
By geurts - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Story that follows up the second novella of The Impaler Legacy by Ioana Visan. A nice 'breathe' to catch up after all the tense happenings of the previous novella, plus a very good, insightful set up for the continuation of the plot. Can't wait for the follow up!
5.0 out of 5 stars Compelling.... 27 Dec. 2013
By Denise Gardner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This quick read is a great intro into Book 3. A cliff hanger that, for me, makes Book 3 a must read. I like how Max is still a big part of this story. I look forward to reading more.
