What a delightful read! Why isn’t this book a movie yet? It was the first book by Martinez that I picked up in a grocery store of all places. I never thought I could find a book there that I liked, but this one has become the exception! It is a fantasy full of, well, ogres, and many other well-known fairy tale and magical creatures. You may find yourself laughing alongside this romp that is likened to a journey against the forces of darkness. The author certainly has a sense of humor. He has become the first author I can turn to for an often enjoyable read to pick up on the side of all the more profound reading I do. I would recommend this product along with Sirens of Morning Light by Benjamin Anderson, a quest for a man in Iowa to regain his identity, which becomes entangled with people who claim to have known him when he discovers he is a scientific experiment. Make sure not to miss either book.

I loved this book. The way to tell a good book for me, I didn't want to leave the characters, I missed them as soon as I was done with the book

After loving his first book, I naturally picked this one up and I was not disappointed at all. A great read with all the hilarity and absurdity I was expecting. Some good swerves and a great ending, this book will keep you entertained and interested the whole way.

Never Dead Ned has spent eternity dying, but he never stays dead as he always returns to life. As a soldier that is a pretty good trait to have as your superiors are grateful for saving the cost of mortuary bills but as a person it is annoying to return. You never know where your next tour of duty will end up as you are unable to argue the assignment while you are dead.-------------- Ned¿s latest comeback sends him to the pits at Copper Citadel, Commander of Ogre Company, the unruly out of control monsters whose superior officers don¿t just mysteriously die, they stay dead. The brass figures if anyone can come back to life after being killed by subordinates, Ned can he has done so seemingly a zillion times. Of course someone want him dead and this person assumes Regina the Amazon, who believes she should be in charge of the unit of losers, will do the job. If not her there are orcs, ogres and goblins ready to kill their boss without a second thought at a time that Ned knows why he returns and must stay alive until he finishes his otherworldly assignment.-------------------- IN THE COMPANY OF OGRES is a wild military science fiction tale that grips readers once they learn about Ned¿s ability to return from the dead and never slows down as he has a cosmic task to accomplish while trying to survive six months with Ogre Company. The tongue in cheek story line is fast paced with a strong cast who argues and bickers over anything and everything. Ned is terrific as the anchor that the rest of the crew gravitates towards. Fans of way out satires in outer space like Douglas Adams¿ Hitchhiker tales will appreciate this fun thriller and seek out A. Lee Martinez¿s previous novels (see Gil's All Fright Diner).----------------- Harriet Klausner
