Summary

They are an unstoppable force of mercenaries from every known Terran planet in the Galaxy. They have little in common, other than their love of wealth and adventure, and a bitter hatred for each other. Known simply as the Black Legion, they will blaze a trail of death and destruction that will be remembered for generations.

For Xenophon, the Black Legion is an escape from the state that tried to kill him and his family. Exiled from his homeworld he joins the mercenaries, along with Glaucon, the rich playboy, Roxana, the veteran naval commander, and Tamara, the blue-haired castaway with a hidden past and a violent personality. Nothing will prepare them for the carnage awaiting them as they enter the borders of the Median Empire, the largest and most powerful entity in the known Galaxy, ruled with an iron fist by the tyrant, Emperor Artaxerxes and his legions of slave soldiers.

The Black Legion boasts the best weapons, armor, and equipment known to humanity. As well as the most advanced warships ever constructed, from frigates and battleships to the four mighty Titans. These great floating fortresses house thousands of warriors inside their cavernous armored hulls. These mercenaries are no heroes; they are exiles, thieves, opportunists, and criminals. Each looking to make their name in the greatest enterprise in living memory, a military operation deep into the heart of the Empire.

Battles are great, politics need work.

The battles we're great, good detail but not too much. I feel this book is really a builder for the other books. Narrator is decent but not the best.

A DIFFERENT READER

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

NONE

Any additional comments?

THE STORY IS BORING WITH NO PLOT, PAPER CHARACTERS AND SUPER SLOW WITH NO ACTION AND CHILDISH DIALOGUE.
