Summary

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

In this military fantasy, Ben Stiger is given a simple mission: march his understrength company to the Cora’Tol garrison far to the southeast. Once there, he is to take a fellow officer into custody and promptly return. But when Stiger arrives, he finds the Rivan have destroyed the garrison and slaughtered the inhabitants of the valley. Suddenly, what was supposed to be a quick and easy task turns into something far more dangerous.

With a Rivan army now moving to flank the imperial army to the west, Stiger makes a desperate decision. Short on rations, and hopelessly outnumbered, he must find a way to delay the enemy so Third Legion can react to this dire threat before it is too late. The solution lies in Fort Covenant, a forgotten place with a history important not only to his people, but the elven nations as well.

Set amidst the backdrop of an epic war, there are greater forces at work than the young Stiger can begin to imagine.

Fort Covenant is set in the Chronicles of an Imperial Legionary universe.

I'm hooked!

Initially I have to admit that I was bit frustrated that Edelheit took the decision to spend time on this rather than continuing his original chronicles about Stiger in the Chronicles of an Imperial Legionary Officer. (Good news on the way about that one at the time of writing too!). Now though I am just as hooked on this. If you haven't read any of these books the author has basically taken the Roman legions in all but name and inserted them into a fantasy setting. The fantasy aspects are largely given a light touch so that it is Military historical fiction set in a fantasy world.

This series follows the younger Stiger very early in his career and he is intriguingly unsure of himself compared to the veteran of the other series. Key moments such as his first meeting with his greatest friend are covered in this one, it genuinely felt like a special moment. For the most part though this book leads up to Stiger's almost Alamo defence of Fort Covenant and there is huge bloodshed and action.

It's gripping stuff and I'd recommend it as worth a try to most people who like authors like SImon Scarrow but are yet to dip their toes into fantasy. Of course if elves and the like really aren't your thing then you might be better off elsewhere.

can't put down

obsessive reading. marc Edelheit is in the class of scarrow and cornwell, non stop from page one I have never before been so absolved into a story and it's characters ,feeling personally at a loss or action leaving me emotionally battered as the defenders of fort covenant. I can't wait for more.

About time!

Another excellent story with the right narrator! My only complaint was it was to short.

amazing amazing amazing - my favorite Stiger tale

I think the more Alan Marc Edelheit writes about Stiger (and company), the more heroic and yet human I find them.

Excellent Read

One of the best books I’ve ever read. I wish I didn’t have to stop reading. The audible books are amazing too and Steven Brand is an excellent narrator, he’s transports you into the author’s world!!
