These, in the day when heaven was falling,
The hour when Earth's foundations fled,
Followed their mercenary calling
And took their wages and are dead.
Their shoulders held the sky suspended;
They stood, and earth's foundations stay;
What God abandoned, these defended,
And saved the sum of things for pay.
"Epitaph on an Army of Mercenaries" by A.E. Housman
Unfortunately for us the series is not complete the author died before finishing the series without leaving any notes about his view of Dorsai universe.
This means we will never get the full picture, but it gives us an opportunity to read only the best!!!!
IMHO only two of the books worth reading :
2. "Tactics of Mistake"
and maybe "Necromancer"
the other books in the series do not match the high standards of these two.
Tactics of Mistake is a Prequel and tells about the time before the Dorsai, the time when the colonization only began and dorsai tactical doctrine and training just began it's long way to be the best.
He suffered much over the years
he lived through zombie Apocalypse, Vampire hunting, alien invasion and gladiator fights.
but there is one more ordeal he hasn't suffered yet.
I want to thank Mark Tufo for all sadistic ways he thought off over the years to hurt "Michael Talbot"
Great book by great author.
Something in the middle between usual orthodox comics style and "BAD BOYS" comics by Garth Ennis
It is your choice
If you want something funny, easy to listen and interesting.
I have to say that all the series was a huge disappointment.
It became too long
at most it should have been 3 or 2 books
all this dragged out suffering was the last nail in the coffin
this damn transcript style makes me furious
I think I will wait until all of the episodes are available and continue then.
39 minutes ARE YOU SERIOUS?
If you exclude all names, there will be only 20 minutes left
this is just a prologue-side story to the next episode,
so don't waste time and buy episode 2 and 3 at once.
You read previous books and you know how it ended.
Trading was established and Earth's Iron Curtain was finally dropped.
and everybody lived happily ever after? NO, YOU ARE WRONG !
It's time for some reality Injection.
Second book is as good as the first,
and from this moment on
Jim Bernheimer is in my top 10 Favorite Authors
and Jeffrey Kafer performed an outstanding narration.
I was upset to find out that there is no 3rd book as of yet,
but according to the author he has plans
for at least 1 probably 2-3 more books in a dead eye series.
Let's hope they will be available soon.
This book was awesome!!!!
I decided to listen to a small 30 minute piece and I couldn't stop!!!!
I already bought the second book and I'm just waiting for the weekend.
The fortress is completely built, it's time to build ships, but
The Earth stopped communicating with Riggs
He has terrible personnel problems, he has only 300 men
And all his neighbors, damn Crustaceans, Blues and Crow are plotting against him,
The question is who friend and who is foe?
Sometimes I think it is The Only Original Sci-Fi series
Next book is "Annihilation" and I hope it will available very soon!
One more worthy add to the series.
I hope that last 2 books will be available soon
(Jerry Sciarrio version please)
