Originally reviewed at Bookwraiths Reviews Legionnaire is written by James Gawley and is the first part of the Exiles of Arcadia novella series. However, this is exactly Mr. In the unexplored forests of the north, the rebels have carved out a wild but stable bastion of Arcadian might in the lands of the savage Woade. These clans of giants are fearful of no man; their magic haunted forests are places of dread for even the most steadfast legionnaire; and their desire to kill their hated neighbors second only to their desire for plunder from them.

But the Arcadian rebels make due, erecting their outposts, mining resources, and building their armies — ever building their military might. For General Seneca and his patron do not intend to live in this snow-covered wasteland of exile forever. Primus Seneca, however, is not a party to all the political machinations. But through hard work and determination, Little Seneca as some of his fellow soldiers name him has carved himself a new life with these tough-as-nails veterans of the civil wars. Something which he believed would prove his worth to his father. Yet still he is ignored, and still he forges ahead, hoping to make the best of his lot in life.
However, life is not always good for Primus in the legions. Most of these troublemakers hate Primus for the simple reason of whom his estranged father is. But whatever the cause, it is only through the help of a few grizzled veterans that Primus survives. These older soldiers take him under their wing, protect him, train him, and attempt to enlighten him on why his father never visits him.
In this way, Little Seneca slowly learns of his unfortunate birth and the mixed feelings that it has created in both his parents. But such news merely makes Primus try harder to prove his worth, and soon, he is given a mission that even his father will not be able to ignore! Obviously, this setup sounds very much like a ho-hum reconciliation between a father and son, and it is to a certain point, but Mr. Gawley livens it up by creative twists and turns in the otherwise straightforward narrative.
Historical Novels: Ancient History
Soon, the deep history of this fantasy Roman, its constant political machinations, and frenetic combat immerse one in a world that has both a familiar and exotic flavor. Questions pop up that beg to be answered. Who are the Woade really? Who built the strange ruins that litter the magic shrouded forests? Why are even the natives so terrified of these ancient places?
Are the Arcadian gods even real?

And through it all, these mysteries drive this story forward, turning it into so much more than it originally appeared. If there is anything to complain about with this novella, it is that it left many plots dangling. In fact, the ending is no ending at all, but merely sets up another chapter in the ongoing tale. Gawley gave me. However, this issue could be chalked up as just my own personal preference. Legionnaire wasn't what I was expecting. In fact, it was so much more than I ever envisioned it could be.
The fantasy-historical hybrid of the Roman Republic just worked for me.
Sure, there were little problems like repetitive narrative, a plot hole, or a few minor errors, but overall, none of these things detracted from my enjoyment of the tale of Primus Seneca, and I fully intend to follow the Exiles of Arcadia series to what I know will be a stunning conclusion.

Despite that kindness I give my candid opinions below. On the positive side, I usually judge historical fiction pretty harshly and this one came out unscathed on any factual point. It's a delicate balance to build a work of fiction in the milieu of a well-documented historical period but this book performs that function wonderfully. It's helpful, I suspect, that the auth As usual I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.
It's helpful, I suspect, that the author is well studied in this time period and it's clear in his craftsmanship of this book that he really knows what he's talking about. His action is believable and appropriate given the setting as well as engaging to the reader. To the negative, despite being a very short text, it did seem to take a while to get anywhere.
There's lots of detailed background but the primary action of the book is practically an eye-blink by comparison. Unlike other readers, this didn't keep me up until 5am but instead lulled me to sleep about half-way through.

When I picked it up again the meat of the narrative started not long after but it was over in a flash that made me wonder what all the build-up was about. Lastly, and as is almost always the case, the text does have its share of grammatical and other errors but relative to the average book of this sort it's wonderfully free of problems. In summary, I really like what the author's done here but I wonder how this will stand on its own as a book. I realize that it's the first part of a multi-part series but this section seems to lack any "hook" that makes it really draw the reader forward into further volumes.
I liked it and I'm glad I read it but I'm not left with any insatiable curiosity about what happens next. There are threads left dangling but maybe just not the right threads to make me pester the author for a free copy of parts two through infinity. An interesting tale indeed. In a similar manner of The Thousand Names, James Gawley has opted to write this one in a similar style of setting. One which closely resembles a historical period we know, shares distinctive aspects with the powers of that time, but changes certain details, names and adds a touch of fantasy to events.
