Publisher's Summary

2018 Dragon Award Finalist for Best Military Sci-Fi Novel

In the era of the original Four Horsemen, there comes a Legend.

At a time when Humans were just starting to venture forth into the Galactic Union as mercenaries, Martin Quincy survived long enough to do something no one else had - he retired.

There was only one problem: He got bored.

After battling aliens for many years - killing aliens and getting paid - retirement didn’t suit him, and he decided to strap on the combat armor and go back to the stars. Along with his old friend Kal, Martin joined Cartwright’s Cavaliers, humanity’s best merc company. Life was exciting!

But he got bored. Again.

What does a "legend" do when even the merc life gets boring? He starts his own company! Can Martin form a merc company out of non-merc races and stand up for the downtrodden of the galaxy, or has his long string of good luck finally run out? One thing is for sure - with Torvasi and Andori troopers, and a Sirra’Kan princess as his partner, he won’t get bored again!

Includes Shattered Crucible, a bonus novella in The Four Horsemen series.

Great story telling and top notch narration

I was pleasantly surprised by this book. I'm always leery of getting books from authors and narrators that I'm not familiar with (I've been burnt too often) but Christopher Woods and Marc Vietor surprised me.

The story has plenty of great dialog, humor and action. My only complaint is that there are sooo many characters and various aliens that it gets overwhelming at times.

I look forward to reading more books in this series.

Confusing

I found this a very difficult book to follow. The first third is about the hero assembling his mercenary band. A flurry of alien races and alien names left me quite bewildered. Probably easier to follow in a book than on audio. The narrator took a while to find his stride so pretty much all characters sounded the same, which didn't help with my muddle.
The rest of the book hop, skips and jumps over 5 years. We drop in from time to time to see what a stand up guy the hero is. He is sooo all round kind, fair and honourable you have to wonder how he ever ended up as this apparently total bad-ass Merc.
Credit to the author for getting on with the story I suppose. Lots of authors could have squeezed a 12 book series out of the time-period. At least then I might have cared something about the characters as they would have been a little less umm cardboardy.
