Publisher's Summary

The best-selling, award-winning author of Stiger's Tigers delivers the next action-packed installment in the Tales of the Seventh series. 

Where a Stiger goes, death follows.

Stiger has survived the brutal ordeal at Fort Covenant, which saw his company shattered and an enemy army destroyed. The campaign season has finally drawn to a close, and Stiger is looking forward to the relatively quiet months ahead as the snow falls across the land and his company regains its strength. 

Stiger is slowly being accepted into the legion. There are still some who seek to make him feel like an outcast. Can he ever prove himself, or will he bear the shame of dishonor to the end of his days? 

Unexpectedly, he finds himself summoned to see the general. Stiger is dispatched on a critical mission for the empire. He must travel to the island kingdom of Thresh to deliver a message and a large quantity of gold. Despite the mission’s importance, it seems like an easy job: a march through friendly territory well away from the enemy and a short journey by sea aboard an imperial warship. He brings only a handful of men, including an elven ranger and a paladin of the High Father. 

But before Stiger can even make it to Thresh, he stumbles upon a horrifying evil that has the potential to threaten everything, including the legion’s survival. Trapped and cut off from help, he must face this insidious darkness or die in the attempt.

Set amidst the backdrop of an epic war, there are greater forces at work than the young Stiger can begin to imagine, and he must confront them or all will be lost.

His path down the long road to destiny has begun.

A Dark Foretoken is set in the Chronicles of an Imperial Legionary universe.

Once again

Steven Brand has brought this author's stories to life for me again and again. This time was no different. I really enjoy the interactions between the characters, and getting a glimpse into what made Stiger the legionary office he is in the Chronicles of an Imperial Legionary Officer.

Not worth the time

Basically the same plot as the previous book. The only difference is the scenery. I expected something different. The narrator was amazing

Good story, but seemed rather rushed

I really appreciate Marc's fresh approach and historical accuracy to his books. However, the last 2 books (Radiance and Foretoken) seemed rushed and left me expecting a few more chapters that would transition better and leave me excited for the next book. Instead, they both just stopped and a soft transition was done with no climax to build expectations for the next book in the serious.

As fans, we of course want to get the next book into our hands as fast as possible, but I would suggest that the author might want to consider a bit more on the transition and end point for each book. The Tiger's Fate and the prior books in Tales of the Seventh series had great conclusions and made it so I could not wait to get the next book in my hands,

more please!

cant wait for book 4! I love these earlier books following Ben Stiggers early years as a legionary officer. We get to see him grow and mature. I've read the other series enjoy the difference in thid from his more experienced and world wisen self in Stiggers Tiggers.

Same Thing

This is the same story over and over again with the same group. I expected more and think this is going to be it for me. I don't want to hear Stiger leaves, find evil kills evil in new town. I think this story has a lot to offer but its stuck in a loop.

more please

the thrill in reading Marc's books is that they truly are a series, one leads to next in a continuing evolving epic tale. from the first Karus saga each book is full of surprises, great characters both main and support, and the epilogue leaving you aching for the next, superb.
the choice of narrator too adds life, between them making you feel you are on the journey too.
