Short Book Reviews — Steam Legion

Steam Legion by Evan Currie is a fascinating tale of what if… imagine the world in 50 AD if someone invents the steam engine.

Steam power is a brand new development in this world, and we get to see first-hand how it changes the face of war. It’s a gem of a story, with interesting characters and nearly non-stop action. I can’t wait to read the next book in the trilogy.

The writing seems a bit rough, but frankly I had enough fun reading this to gloss over such technical details. It’s not grimdark, unlike most recent fantasy offerings; it’s rather old-school in a pulpy sword-and-sorcery fashion, and that’s not a bad thing at all!

Highly recommended
