Review by: Rita K on Aug. 14, 2012 :
I'll be honest, after reading an incredible book, this one kind of paled. Thought the two can't be at all compared, I was really impressed and this book failed to capture my attention. Towards the end, I felt less lost than I had been feeling throughout reading the story and I did start to care much more about the characters and where they were heading, but I really wish I understood more about their beginnings and history. It was a weird book about what I can only assume is an "army-for-hire" (something I learned about in a political science class but had never heard of before) and there's some mystery of the main character's, Jonrell's, past that he's going back to (in the next installment of the series) as well as some mystery surrounding Cassus. There was some familial love/bonding going on too, which seemed uncharacteristic for hardened army men. Throw in some mages too and overall, it was an interesting book but nothing overly exciting. I would like to read more of the story though to find out what Jonrell, Cassus and Yanasi are all about and where they end up.

Oh, and I was really confused my the book numbering because it seemed like I was reading "Book 2" but there was an excerpt from the next story which was called "Book 1" but did clearly pick up where this story had ended so...

Anyway, it was a good read, but not an amazing story that I would recommend up and down to strangers on the street (like I would with the previous book I finished) ... I really wish I had more positive things to say...

Review of “ Walk Through Fire” Author Joshua P. Simon

If you’re looking for a thrill ride “Walk Through Fire” could be the answer to your prayers. Author Joshua Simon throws us into a post cataclysmic world where all traces of humanity have been erased and replaced with endless wars for power and land. From our first glimpse of the streets of Mudhole Bay, Simon grabs you and drags you through a world of assassins, traitors and sorcerers where friendship and loyalty is bought and trust is often paid for in blood. This is one ride you can’t get off until the end. Don’t take my word for it get a copy of “Walk Through Fire” and hang on tight.
