the fifth book in the BALADA series.
“A great new dawn is upon us! The imperial grip on our great nation has received a devastating and crippling blow and now the hour is upon us, we must act now and unite under one banner and drive the enemy out of our motherland!” he added while waving his arms dramatically for effect, which unfortunately for him only Mgathu, Kusas and Thoras seemed interested in his words, and even they felt that his words where a bit too cheesy to be taken seriously.
“The Empire has suffered a severe blow to its reputation, but it’s just that, a blow. It leads no lasting damage, it doesn’t kill the Empire, it doesn’t cripple it, it barely even bruised it!” Alefran said and since he was the most renowned of all those present, his statement carried a lot of weigh and with the exception of the Carnetsars, everyone at the table nodded in agreement.
“That bruise, as you call it cost the empire a great deal, 50.000 soldiers lost, an elite unit at that, and if that wasn’t enough we have reports that anything between 70 and 90 percent of the chariots, artillery and other heavy equipment that where present on the planet where transferred to the corps, and with it perished in the subsequent eruption, you have greatly underestimated the will of our people to fight colonel!”
Fragment from the log files, of the meating before the Juseria planetary siege.
About the Author
I'm a pharmacist in Eastern Europe, who is a great fan of SF and fantasy, but my favorite genre is military SF, so I decided to write my own series. I was inspired by SF gems like: Armoured Troops Votons, Code Geass, Star Wars, the Lost Fleet and my personal favorite, the series which i cannot get enough off: Legend of Galactic Heroes. But the main inspiration for me to write was Sir Terry Pratchet's Discworld and George Mcdonald Frasier's Flashman. So, inspired by great series and two titans I set out to create my own story. But one question was always nagging me whenever I watched SF and that was: 'What if magic instead of tech was what advanced to such a degree that a civilization could leave their planet?' And that was how it all started!
