Sorry, no book review this week. Haven’t had much reading time lately. But I will try to have something next week.
In the meantime, tomorrow is Veterans Day in the USA, and so in recognition of this, I thought I’d provide a list of books authored by military veterans. I know a few warrior-bards whose work is worth your time:
Peter is a U.S. Marine Corps infantry veteran, and this comes across in his books. He writes some of the best action scenes I’ve ever read. I recommend starting with his Mandate of Heaven and going from there.
-The Widow’s Son, by Ryan Williamson.
A phenomenal weird Western adventure. Williamson’s military background (Army) comes through most clearly in the banter among the soldiers.
-Intrusion Protocol by B.R. Keid.
This one is military sci-fi, a genre near and dear to me. A tech-heavy adventure that’s a thrill for all of us who grew up playing games like Halo.
-Sunder of Time by Kristin McTiernan.
A sprawling, epic time-travel novel with some heavy religious overtones. McTiernan does a good job of bringing the harshness of medieval life home to the reader.
-Forbidden Kisses by Sha Renée.
We’ve heard of military sci-fi, but military romance? Hey, why not! It’s a cute, light-hearted story.
