Stiger's Tigers (Chronicles of An Imperial Legionary Officer Book 1) by Marc Alan Edelheit (Book 2015)

Wow, excellent book and a great start to a promising new series. The setting of the story is pretty neat. Picture imperial Rome as the base, but set in a fantasy-like atmosphere, so nothing historical.

The story follows around an infantry officer as he is tasked with building up his company from scratch and is ordered to complete a specific mission. The writing has a lot of detail and fully develops multiple characters while slowly moving the plot along.

Great writing and pace. This was definitely one of those books that you can't put down. Considering it was the author's first book, kudos to Mr. Edelheit. Well done.
