I enjoyed 13 legion, although gavin thorpes style of writing is.. different. You get used to it.

I just finished the entire series, and well, the ending won't leave you with a warm fuzzy feeling.

I recommend the entire series, but be warned, just like Anberlin typed, Gav Thorpe has a very unique style of writing.

I've only read Killteam, but as far as I experienced it Gav Thorpe's first person narrative worked alot better than I thought it would when reading. Only three novels that I've read have been written in 1st person, Killteam, I, Jedi and The curious incident of the dog and the rake in the middle of the night(may not be the correct title).

All three were good, and all three told very different stories. All of which I liked!

The Last Chancers, from what I've read of them (Killteam) won't be winning any literary awards soon, but they are still a pleasant read!

Good series and I recommend it although as Gav's chosen style of writing for this series (he writes differently in his BFG short stories) is in my opinion, somewhat childish? (First person, present tense).

Entertaining read if a slightly odd ending to the series.

There's freakin' female nudity in it. And after that one part of the book, those males are pretty disiplined... It's like after joining the guard and all that training, you lose the ability to make children...
