Savage Legion

Saga: S. & S. (Savage Rebellion, Bk. 1). Jul. 2020. 512p. ISBN 9781534439207. $26.99. FANTASY
The Savage Legion is the crafted weapon of the empire of Crache. Condemned people are given one last shot: either die for their empire, or live and fight again. Warrior Evie is on a mission to find the man she used to love, who can reveal dark truths about those who enter the Legion. She must become a Savage to complete her mission. Lexi of Gen Stalbraid knows that her husband is not a traitor, even if his disappearance brands him as such. As their Gen is in peril, Lexi tries to stay one step ahead of the council that would end her work with the poor and forgotten in the Bottoms. Dyeawan knows that her crippled body means she has little chance at survival, until a mysterious person discovers the true strength of her mind. Three women on different journeys, tied together by the secrets of their empire.
VERDICT Smart characters and brutal action create an intriguing story about power and the decisions made to keep it. Wallace (The Failed Cities) introduces a new epic fantasy trilogy filled with rich worldbuilding and people who battle bravely. [See Prepub Alert, 1/15/20.]
