on June 25, 2011 :
This book allows the reader to have a first person like perception of the story, which I find quite immersive.
Though set in a medieval like time, it contains witty touches that though not straying from the theme, does bring up modern views of an old society.
Overall, it has a refreshing and entertaining take on storytelling without taking itself over seriously.
Would like to see more of this role-playing adventure read.

- The fundamentals of the story is somewhat similar to Pokemon or Yu-gi-oh (but this time it's collecting gems) but in Medival settings and that this time, YOU are the super hero tactician.
- Good to have a bit of knowledge of tactics anthemn (e.g. 2nd Circle tactics, banding, star deployment strategy etc)
- The STORY is about you, a tactician in training, trying to pass the Section Tactician Examinations in under six months where normal folks would need at least 2 years (by defeating 10 renegade tacticians: TENBADSIRS and passing the Section Tactician Examination)
- It gets more interesting after defeating TENBADSIRS with the first battle at a deceivingly mundane task as a tactician to keep out rats in a farm: battle with the durns.
- One note: There are quite a number of names which I had trouble trying to remember (not good with names) But as the story goes, these names can settle down quite well esp with the battles.
- The best part is at the Section Tactician examination where battle within the team takes place. Conflict of interests between friendship and the dream to pass the section tactician exam.
