Publisher's Summary

The tide of battle has turned. In a magnificent feat of maneuvering, Parno McLeod has lured his enemy into an ambush that has left the Imperial Army with half its strength dead or dying and all of its material support destroyed.

And yet, the remaining Imperial Army on Soulan soil still numbers over 150,000 men. Men who are now angry and hungry, which is a dangerous combination. Plans that Parno has developed since his ascension to Marshal are finally coming together as highly trained reinforcements arrive at the front, along with rested and refit units that had been pulled from battle due to losses. Everything seems to be leaning in Parno's favor for once. 

But the Imperial Army is still there, before him, and Parno wants nothing so much as to tear that army into shreds and have it simply disappear, as if Soulan herself opened up and swallowed them without a trace left behind. So, he hatches one final campaign to ensure that happens. 

For better or worse, Parno McLeod is about to ride into history. But will it be as a savior to his people, or as a butcher of a beaten army? And will either choice make any difference to those who see him as a hero?

Black Sheep of Soulan

Really really enjoyed this series. Well written story that keeps you interested, even if you're not much interested in the military. The characters are rich and believable and the story flows well. And also concludes well. Highly enjoyable listen. Thank you.
