REVIEW Garrison (a military fantasy novelette) î PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Nt their name Only the morrow will tellWatching over them is enigmatic veteran Von He knows that when soldiers fail the army relies on veterans to fix them whatever it takesStarship Troopers meets archers and spider cavalry in this military fantasy story from an author who knows what life is like inside the. Unfortunately thi short story didn t really do anything for me maybe that it because it is not one of my prefered genres If you have seen the film Starship Troopers try to imagine them armed with medieval weaponry and you will begin to get the gist of the story The plot line follows two rookie recruits and the mentor a battle hardened regular soldier Some of the terminology started to irritate part way through the tale but as I said this is not a genre of choice for me and others of this genre have done the same previously

REVIEW Garrison (a military fantasy novelette) î PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB “Military SF at its best” couk review“I was transposed back 60 years when we scraped slit trenches into the ground and laid in the path of an advancing group of tanks” reviewOn the contested Iron Flats two young recruits face their first battle Will they die Will glory cover them or ignominy tai. Originally reviewed at Bookwraiths Reviews Garrison by Nigel Edwards is a military fantasy novella of a company of fresh recruits traveling across an arid landscape toward their first post a fort along a wild untamed border Among this band is one youth called Ataa a farmer s son who doesn t attempt to hide his fear of what lies ahead Another is the brash and confident Hoop who yearns for battle and glory And marching beside them is a rugged enigmatic veteran known only as Von who tries to impart some veteran wisdom to their inexperienced mindsWhat will these three soldiers face Do they have what it takes to survive this harsh new reality What enemies await them And does Von mean to help them or throw them to the wolvesNow this story reads very much like Starship Troopers in sandals so for those who hate that sort of thing don t say I didn t warn you before you kept reading but for those who think that sounds cool please continueHere Mr Edwards does a great job translating the daily routine of soldiers into a fantasy setting for this is definitely a fantasy land filled with strange beasts and talk of magic and weaving an interesting narrative around that framework uickly a reader learns enough about each of the three main characters to have an emotional attachment to them the ominous enemies are described to instill fear there are rousing speeches exhorting martial prowess and then the garrison and these enemies face off in a battle royal that introduces both the recruits and the readers to the harshness and brutality of hand to hand combat in fantasy land including some rather cool moments like when the soldiers dig pit trenches to attack the enemy cavalry as they pass over their headsThe most interesting person in this tale by far was Von With his shadowy past and mysterious role within the company he was immediately intriguing When these things were added to his constant poise understanding and toughness throughout the narrative it seemed inevitable that readers would gravitate toward him So while Ataa and Hoop are definitely the stars of the show Von stole it at least in my opinionThe only negative I had with this novella was that there really wasn t much of a plot It stayed true to the very linear story of recruit experiencing his first battle and never strayed far from it Even when a side story involving Von s mysterious past came up it really seemed to be introduced to allow the veteran to impart wisdom to his youthful proteges rather than form a new plot threadAccording to Edward Nigel Garrison is an extension of the novel Prism with the physical world of that world as the backdrop to this novella and while it is narrow in scope it is still an entertaining story Normal untamed border Among this band is one youth called Ataa a farmer s son who doesn t attempt to hide his fear of what lies ahead Another is the brash and confident Hoop who yearns for battle and glory And marching beside them is a rugged enigmatic veteran known only as Von who tries to impart some veteran wisdom to their inexperienced mindsWhat will these three soldiers face Do they have what it takes to survive this harsh new reality What enemies await them And does Von mean to help them or throw them to the wolvesNow this story reads very much like Starship Troopers in sandals so for those who hate that sort of thing don t say I didn t warn you before you kept reading but for those who think that sounds cool please continueHere Mr Edwards does a great job translating the daily routine of soldiers into a fantasy setting for this is definitely a fantasy land filled with strange beasts and talk of magic and weaving an interesting narrative around that framework El otro barrio up it really seemed to be introduced to allow the veteran to impart wisdom to his youthful proteges rather than form a new plot threadAccording to Edward Nigel Garrison is an extension of the novel Prism with the physical world of that world as the backdrop to this novella and while it is narrow in scope it is still an entertaining story
