Review

Praise for "The Legions of Fire:

""Drake keeps the action moving. Recommended for all action fantasy fans, not least because three of the four protagonists are on the verge of adulthood, which promises a bildungsroman atmosphere throughout the succeeding volumes."
-"Booklist

""Drake vividly recreates the attitudes of patrician Romans in this fantasy tale.... Fans of fantasy and historical fiction will enjoy the characters and their decidedly noncontemporary characters and their adventures."
"--Publishers Weekly

""David Drake is thought of as a military SF author, but he's actually written more fantasy than anything else in his long and impressive career. If you want to know why, read "The Legions of Fire". Drake is one of the best fantasy writers this genre has ever produced."
--Eric Flint, author of "1632"

5.0 out of 5 stars Out of the Park 12 Aug. 2011
By G. Peter Wityk - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
David Drake hits another one out of the park. The second in The Books of the Elements series continues this strong, readable and enjoyable fantasy series. Mixing Atlantis and Native Americans with Drake's alternate Rome yields an exciting tour of the distant past and a far future. The four leads, Varus, Alphena, Corylus and Hedia are well developed and each has a role to play in bringing the troubles to a satisfactory resolution. Drake's love of ancient Rome shows throughout the entire book. The magic is well developed, believable and melds the disparate elements of Rome, Native Americans and Atlantis into a fast moving adventure.

Drake's mastery of fantasy and history make this a winner. Buy it, read it and be prepared to enjoy it! Highly recommended.
5.0 out of 5 stars A good read 17 Aug. 2014

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. As the second in the series character development continued along the lines started in the first book. Really liked the intertwining of the group of heroes to accidentally achieve the goal of keeping Carve safe.

Something different from the typical David Drake books I usually read but his writing is as excellent as always. He is an outstanding writer. I recommend this series.
