    Good Read

    This book is hard to review because the author did not live up to his writing potential. He is talented, and I predict he will give readers the full measure of his talent in future novels.
    In the present book, the final chapters were wonderful because the author showed the purpose of the book, and he developed his characters.
    Why four stars? The author wrote about a time and place that have not garnered much attention, not even in history texts. The borders, races and tribes of parts of Asia and Europe were caught in a miasma of movement. It took courage to write about a place and time that had no great force able to forge some stability for the people of the borderlands.
    The read was quick, and despite my criticisms, it was an easy read. I have the next book in the series and plan to start it now. I have griown rather fond of Superman Apion.

    Wyoming reader

    5 stars are not enough for this wonderful book Strategos . Apion is a very troubled youth due to what he dae happen to his parents. Many twists and turns to keep a person reading and wanting more. Read this book twice and picked up more on the second reading well worth it.Now hurry up with the second book I can hardly wait. What is late spring for the new book?

    A top read

    In a nutshell, 'Strategos' is a thrilling read. I found it really well-woven, with characters who kept drawing me into the plot as it unfolded. The story winds through a period of the Byzantine Empire where you get the sense that something really bad is coming from the east and the Seljuks and this just kept me turning the pages in eager anticipation.

    Bravo! I can't wait for the next part!
