Book Review : Anthony Hogger : Warrior King Legacy

Warrior King Legacy

Author:   Anthony Hogger

Title:  Warrior King Legacy

Genre:  Literature and Fiction, Action and Adventure, War and Military, War, Historical Fiction

Synopsis:  The ancient tribes of Gaul are in turmoil: Rome is encroaching on her lands, her townships, her way of life. Only one tribe has the nerve to stand up to the threat, the Arverni, led by King Celtillus. But, when he is murdered, it is left to his 19-year-old son, Vercingetorix, to unite the tribes into one great army. Warrior King Legacy is the story of a young man desperate to fulfil a legacy. From the ordeal of his birth, to growing up in a brutal world where only the very strongest will prevail, to the siege of Alesia and beyond. It is a story of courage, of love, of vengeance, and of tragedy.˃˃˃ Praise for Warrior King Legacy It’s an interesting life, being an editor. You get to read people’s work, long before the general public ever see it. Sometimes, it’s your job to tell an author the work is not ready for the general public yet; sometimes you enjoy a book and suggest tweaks that could make it work more effectively. And then, just occasionally, you get to read a book that makes you want to start a publishing company, just so you can get more people to read it.Anthony Hogger’s Warrior King Legacy. The book is a historical fiction masterpiece, telling the story of Vercingetorix, King of the Gaul’s in the time of the expansion of the Roman Empire. Warrior King Legacy blends a story of fathers and sons and the expectation of greatness thrust on a child with philosophical concerns of relevance even today. What do you do if the greatest superpower in the world wants to take your land, your resources, your way of life? Vercingetorix chose a destiny in opposition to the might of Rome, and forged the disparate and distrusting tribes of Gaul into a single, unified nation, then pitted his skills against the armies of the Empire. The armies lead by Julius Caesar. Warrior King Legacy is a book so good that we at Jefferson Franklin read it twice during the editing stage and immediately bought it for the pleasure of reading it again when it was released.

Review:  l really enjoyed reading this book and was easy to get in to and l was really sad to read king Celtillus wife dead in child birth and that he was murdered but was happy to read their son survived. I was sent this book for a review and l am glad l reed it and l was hooked on this book after the first page it was an awesome read and l would love to read it again and again because l loved this book. I highly recommend it to anybody and l wish l could rate it more than 5 stars because it would be worth it. I cannot wait to read more from the author.
