A nobleman from an infamous family, imperial legionary officer, and born fighter, Ben Stiger is trapped in the past and cut off from everything he has known. The World Gate is sealed behind him, and Delvaris, the man he traveled through time to save, is dead. With this great man’s death, the future has been altered by the evil god Castor. Stiger has lost his purpose. For the first time in a great long while, no one needs saving, and no one needs killing. Cast adrift in a time not his own, Stiger believes his time as a leader of men is at an end. But the gods are not done with him yet.

A very entertaining listen that has me excited for the next installment. Stiger's legend continues to grow and he's accumulating friends along the way. Hope we see his companions developed more in next installment.

One of history's greatest mysteries, the Ninth Imperial Legion guarding Rome's northernmost frontier in Britannia disappeared around the year 122 AD. Badly outnumbered, facing certain destruction, and cut off from supply, the Imperial Roman Ninth Legion Hispana is surrounded by the hostile Celtic army. Then the unthinkable happens. Senior Centurion Karus and the Ninth are transported to a strange place, far away from the Britannia they knew. The legion's deliverance from danger at first appears to be a blessing from the gods, but....

I love this Author but more importantly love the concept of the Lost Roman Legion in a Fantasy Series. This portrayal is WAY better than Jim Butcher's Codex Alera series. It seems more real in a way. Or at least a more accurate portrayal of legion life (granted in a Fantasy setting).

Equipped with skills far beyond those of the outworlders, Rezkin has been suddenly thrust into a foreign world. The young warrior clings to his only known purpose as he continues his search for any information about his identity and the reason for his existence. While the hardened warrior scorns both dueling and tournaments, he believes some of the answers he seeks may be found at the King's Tournament, the greatest dueling championship in all of the kingdoms.

Loved the narrator and the drama of knowing more than most of the characters. It was a non-stop listen. Would say more but using the phone app keyboard...

When a high-ranking officer gallops into the quiet Mistyvales, he brings a warning that shakes the countryfolk to their roots. But for Aedan, a scruffy young adventurer with veins full of fire and a head full of ideas, this officer is not what he seems. The events that follow propel Aedan on a journey that only the foolhardy or desperate would risk, leading him to the gates of the nation's royal academy - a whole world of secrets in itself. But this is only the beginning of his discoveries.

The Name of the Winds on steroids. Extremely well written. Worth the credit. The further you go the more detailed the world and dynamic the characters. Its probably the best fantasy book I've listened to in a year. 10x better than Sanderson. World building is epic in scale. Reward yourself and give it a listen. Hopefully that's 20 words so I stop getting the error message... Meant every one of em though.
