This novel is the first book in a series by Christopher Pepper. I received the book via kindle gift through onlinebookclub.org as a book review.
I was skeptical when I came across this book, mostly because of the cover. This is the reason to never judge a book by what you see at first glance! In a store I would have easily glanced at the cover while browsing and kept right on going. However, I am glad I was given the chance to read this book because it was really good and I look forward to reading the other books as they become available.
The Outrider Legion is about a group of five outriders, and a weaver. Later on, a woman who is an agent becomes part of the group and they also acquire two life long friends and allies. The group in itself is an oddity, five strong men, a fat jolly man and a woman who is missing an extremity all work together to complete their task and keep each other alive. The other two a giant of a man and an assassin become necessary tools in defending their post and also keeping each other alive.
For so many characters in the story, the other played it off really well. He still managed to hook the reader and gave them enough through out the story to be able to connect with the characters. This alongside the odd group made the story seem real and not just a fairy tale.
I look forward to reading the other books and I highly recommend this story!
Happy Reading Everyone!
