This is a short story, giving a little past history of Tristan Montague, the magic half of the Montague & Strong Detective Agency, when he was a Golden Circle battle mage. The start of the story might be a little slow and boring for those who just want some action and aren't interested in the planning and strategy of a dangerous mission. I was intrigued by the in depth detail the author put into the set up for the coming action. Attention to detail and not just rushing helter skelter from one wild and crazy action scene to another with no real explanations or even a little detail of why, how or what is the reason I very much enjoy and appreciate this author's work.
This short story gives us Montague's first betrayal by a Golden Circle comrad and it reveals the connection Montague has with a close relative of a character in the new Sanchez series, Night Warden Novels.
I believe this short story can be read and enjoyed by someone who has never read either the Montague & Strong Case Files or the Night Warden Novels so it works as a good introduction to the authors works and writing style.
A dark short story about Monty’s battle experiences during the paranormal war. Other men’s lives mean little to ranking leaders, including the commander who sends Monty and his team on an unsanctioned suicide mission. As expected, nothing goes as planned—except for a stunning betrayal. Worth reading if you like this series.
An introduction to Monty & his philosophy. We meet a couple other characters who show up in later books, so this is backstory for those meetings. There's been several of these short stories now, these are a quick way to expand the characters.
The Montague and Strong series is lots of fun. I really enjoy all the references to the other book characters. Not many people I talk with know Disc World. Thanks for the entertainment Orlando A. Sanchez.
Monty before Strong. Helps to understand Month's fatherhood outlook. This book doesn't have the fun and humorous elements of the Casefiles books but is an interesting and quick read. Plus we get a peek into another reoccurring character.
