Summary

War defines his past. Living haunts his present. Peace mocks his future.

Months have passed since Tyrus ended a decade of war between Turine and Genesha by destroying the Geneshan's sorcerous artifact. He had hoped that taking his family south would grant him the peace he desired, but even in the Southern Kingdoms, war welcomes him instead.

Ava strikes a deal with the Southern Kingdom leaders to protect her brother, taking his place in their fight to protect their lands from invading forces. Having spent her adult life entrenched in battle, Ava doesn't hold any illusions as to what awaits her. A new land, a new language, and new obstacles reinforce what she already knows - nothing in life is easy. Her men, an entire nation, and, most of all, her family, depends on her success.

Without a call of war to answer, Tyrus leads his group of settlers to their new town, taking on the role of mayor with the skills he has honed for more than a decade - assess, prioritize, plan, execute. When memories of the past begin to cloud his judgement, he is forced into a new kind of war. One he doesn't know he can or wants to fight.

Once a solider, forever a soldier.

Forever Soldiers is the final book in the military fantasy series The Tyrus Chronicle.

It seems to me an author should know when to stop

I enjoyed the first 3 books. This felt like a forced addition that bore little resemblance to the trilogy. The 3 books were centered around the problem of dealing with a magical artifact and the ensuing chaos. They held a good storyline, appropriate arc and a satisfactory resolution. This book had many of the same characters dealing with life after war and some being drawn into a different conflict with unstable allies and ill defined enemies. In the end the conclusions were not satisfying and I'd lost a lot of respect and affection for the characters who were involved in a story I cared very little about. I wish I'd stopped listening after the third book.

Still a good book, but not the best in the series.

Would you listen to Forever Soldiers again? Why?

Properly not. The story did not catch me like the other 3 the in series.

Any additional comments?

Well its an ending to the serie.
It changes alot from the first books, and personal i dont like listing to storys about depression since i have forget whit it myself. And ad the sametime the long fight whit PTSD drags the story abit to long.

One of the Best Series I have ever listened to!!!

I can't remember listening to a story about a great soldier who eventually develops PTSD. The story is deep on so many levels. I was a little put off with how his kids were acting, but it is squared away at the end. Great Story!

Drop all the crying from tyrus

Disliked how much he kept talking about lasha. 10 years and he still hung up. Half the story was tyrus self moping about lasha. I'm. It exaggerating I believe half of "ty" story was same thoughts about lasha as the second and third book. Get over it.

Couldn't End quickly enough

I have learned one lesson from buying the entire series all at once and that’s never do that again. This was one of the worst series I have ever had the unfortunate luck of listening too, but if you don’t believe me let me get into the review with all the holes.
The MC Tyrus, in the last book dissolved the tried and proven army to be, “free” as he calls it, so that people can become bandits, rapist and murders again rather than rebuild the nation. Okay, but now he comes hat in hand begging for a place to stay whenever he didn’t have too to another nation at war. He crossed an unprotected border and entered abandon towns to walk to a capital city just so he can be told to go back to one of the cities he passed to live in after he makes a one sided deal that only benefits the new nation. Tyrus who is supposed to be a great planner and strategist couldn’t see what is so clear again gives up his advantages just to take scrapes with hat in hand. I get it people over time get tired of war, but to give up one’s homeland, which he just secured to go into a new land and be a beggar again doesn’t make any sense. It would’ve been better if he stayed to fight for his homeland and rebuild it in an image he wanted it to be, but whenever you have a writer who doesn’t know human nature writing about human behavior you get this, which is garbage.
If you need example that you chose poorly Joshua, look at Germany. It was forced to pay for WW1 and WW2, but it didn’t give up, it rebuild and its people stayed in a war torn country to rebuild it all. This is because of nationalistic pride, people will stay and fight for the known rather than run into the unknown that they can’t control. If you need a more modern example look at the Middle East, countries are in a constant state of war and yet the majority stay in place, fight and in most cases die for land they will never have, because it’s human nature. Not this garbage you came up with of giving up your best advantage just to get something they could’ve taken without a fight and become indenture servants to a new land.
Well like I said, I have learned my lesson and this was a hard one, but one I have learnt well. I will never get another one of Joshua P. Simon books as it stands because this guy has no idea about what he write whenever he writes about human behavior and human nature. Hopefully this helps someone not make the same mistake I did in purchasing the entire series. Just don’t do it.

Great series! !!

This was an amazing series of personal struggle and overcoming odds and demons. The characters are real, heart felt, and share a depth of quality only a truly entertaining and creative author can give. Another great performance by Steven Brand.

Nice read

This was a little slower than the other books in the series but I still enjoyed it. I like the peace that the main characters are able to find.

Tyrus is one unique man

So this is the last book of the series. Characters redeem themselves, some die, others live and the war concludes. Tyrus’ outcome is a bit predictable as far as romance is concerned but otherwise nothing else is apparent. Simon has a penchant for cleverly switching up, shifting gears and taking the story in a new direction. Steven Brand’s sexy mature voice is perfect for the series.
