The Thousand Names - Django Wexler

I hadn't read any military fantasy before this and I wasn't even sure that the genre was going to be to my liking, happily I was wrong.

I never thought I'd enjoy reading about military maneuvering, bayonets affixing, and muskets exploding but the story kept me very entertained.  I did think we'd get more of a fantasy flavor based on the prequel but it seems like The Thousand Names set the stage for book 2 when we go back to Vordan with our persevering trio.  I am looking forward to it!
