Army of the Dead: Book
Forgotten Legacy by Richard S. Tuttle
enjoyed this final tale of Forgotten Legacy--wonderful ending for the series!
[The Torak]; Lyra [The Star of Sakova] and Rejji [The Astor] fulfill their
destiny as ordained by their God [Kaltara] in this final saga of the Forgotten
Legacy. The three brave leaders prepare defensive measures to thwart the devious
mage Vand, who is empowered by his demonic God, Dobuk.
Although grossly outnumbered by Vandís servitudal mages, ape-like creatures
and Motangan army, mainland spies infiltrate the enemy forces and gain advance
knowledge of the planned naval attacks. This Time of Cleansing proves fatal for
both sides, as fields are burned, starvation endured and mass casualties result.
Even with mages, elves, cat people, giant spiders and a flying dragon to aid in
defense, outwitting and overpowering Vand proves more difficult than imagined,
especially since heís guarded by six demons and raises the dead to fight for
his dark cause. How then can the prophesized leaders defeat such a powerful
Richard S. Tuttle aptly describes defensive and offensive war strategies in this
fantasy tale of good against evil. His characters - most introduced in earlier
books from this series - hold true to their noble or deviant convictions to the
end. Army of the Dead, although ending the Forgotten Legacy series, is like a
new beginning for the author, for Mr. Tuttle can now acquaint his fans with
other fantastical tales and timeless characters.
