Publisher's Summary

2017 Gold Medal Winner for Best Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror E-Book Independent Publisher Book Awards

A nobleman from an infamous family, an imperial legionary officer, and a born fighter, Captain Ben Stiger has successfully thwarted the attack from an army of the Cyphan Confederacy. Now Stiger, his men, and his new dwarven allies have fallen back behind the great walls of Castle Vrell. Stiger finds himself named Legate of the Vanished, the long-lost 13th Legion. This title and his own word binds him to the terms of the Compact, an ancient and mystical alliance formed nearly 2,000 years before.

The snows have come, and the mountain summit into Vrell is impassable. On one side of the pass sits an army of the Cyphan Confederacy some 20,000 strong. On the other sits Stiger, his company, the remnants of the 13th Legion, and a dwarven army. Each side is waiting for the spring thaw.

Bottled up in the Vrell valley, Stiger and his elven companion, Eli, learn of Garand Thoss, an ancient and abandoned dwarven city. Within its hallowed halls resides a prize of unimaginable value - a prize that will reveal the true history of the empire and force Stiger to face a new enemy more deadly than he has ever faced before.

Is the next book available?

This has turned out to be another keeper! I must admit that I'm extremely frugal with my five star ratings and during the month of November I've used them twice! My keeper shelf overfloweth, Both authors have made and surpassed the water mark of fantasy. MarkAlan Edelheit did not soften any action as his descriptions of a battle and all that caused it, graphically are shown. If this had been all there was to the book, it would have just another ten hours of blood and guts, no where close to a Five. He paints the characters full of humanity's foibles and the interaction between them is definitive and charges the book. Based on the Roman Legions of yore, I was stunned when our Roman leader finds that Rome was not old wives tales but had actually existed! That's only one of many subtle signals the author gives so that I keep waiting for the other shoe to drop. Steven Brand is a new narrator to me so I was pleasantly surprised at the acumen and depth he brings to the book. He definately rated a five without any doubt at all! Tiger's Fate is an excellent book, well read. What more matters?

Amazing story with an amazing narrator!

Really glad that I stumbled upon this series. Honestly, the only reason I bought it was because Steven Brand was the narrator.

Best narrator ever!

Great narrator to go with a great series! He lets you get lost in the story and has a voice that gives a gravitas to everything he says.

I loved this series

I cant remember when I have been so captivated, such a good story line and really gets you hanging on the edge i find my self not wanting this story to end. And Steven Brand brings a whole new level to the narration. I find myself only purchasing books that he has narrated. Well deserved all 5 star review in my opinion and I rarely ever feel compelled to write any reviews

Worse narrator ever

I gave this a three star rating out of pitty for the author. The reader makes it sound like you are listening to a phone book recital. No exaggeration here. His tone never varies. He does nothing to flesh out the characters, they all sound the same. No emotion. Infact, he reads like a 1st grade student, sounding out each word for the first time. Worse narrator EVER.

Better and better

What more can I say, the series gets better and better and this book filled me with emotion in all ranges!! Simply brilliant and, in my opinion, on a par, of not exceeding, my love and joy when reading Tolkien. Really happy it is the same narrator again, helps continuity in my imagination and he just makes the world and characters come alive.

magic takes over

extraordinary. I have become totally enthralled with the series now. from the frailty of a father over his captured daughter ,her lover a human Calvary officer, the story expands with huge armies of orcs ,battling dwarves, and the underlying tale of Steiger and his ancestor who must defeat the minion, and now a world portal.

Veering Into More Fantasy

A series that continues to entertain in exciting style. This Tiger is changing its stripes a little though. There is still plenty of the excellent military history vibe within it as Stiger’s Legion engages in battles and skirmishes based on the Roman legions. However, as this series develops the fantasy side is taking a much stronger hold and this now feels like something more approaching epic fantasy of a classic flavour.

For me as someone who very much enjoys both military history and fantasy this series really does appeal and deliver great entertainment. I can see why it’s a bit of a niche market but I’d recommend it to anyone who enjoys both genres as a diversion well worth taking.
