Tacticus: Non-commissioned officer rank in the Janissaries. Generally the highest rank available to non-citizens. Equivalent to sergeant.
A soldier´s tale, this is Tacticus White´s story.
Tacticus Laurie White from Charlestown is a Janissary, a slave soldier, and he´s about to go to war.
Laurie is part of an elite recon unit about to infiltrate enemy territory ahead of the coming invasion force, and his mission is to scout and observe. Janissary recon is the eyes and ears of the Brigade, and thousands of lives rest upon the completion of their mission.
As they head for the aircraft, to be inserted deep behind enemy lines, Laurie expects this to be one of the toughest assignments he has ever had. He is right…
Tacticus is a Rift Saga companion novella, and is set at the same time as the concluding events of “Legacy”.

A good short exposing an event that took place in the later part of The Rift series, from the perspective of one of the characters that experienced it.
“Tacticus” gives us a peak into was happening “on the ground” at the end of the Rift Saga and answers certain key questions left up in the air at the end of Legacy. This Novella has an interesting structure, making for a great read, and offers a surprising insight into the mind of one of the series main characters. Although Tacticus could be read as a stand alone novella, I highly recommend reading the entire series.
What a rip off!!!
