Bahzell Bahnakson of the Horse Stealer hradani had never wanted to be the champion of the War God. Unfortunately, the War God had insisted. Which was how he had found himself among hostile strangers in the Empire of the Axe - except that that was only the least of his problems. For a start, there was the Order of Tomanak, who were horrified that their deity had chosen a hradani as champion, and were resolved to rectify the matter in a most unpleasant fashion. And if he survived that, he had to get home somehow, in spite of the enemies determined to stop him, to face the Dark God who had sworn to destroy all hradani. But one thing Bahzell had learned: a champion of the War God Tomanak does what needs to be done. And those who got in his way had better watch out...

An enjoyable romp with a fellow who finds himself thrust on an adventure running away from service of a War God (not one that he has ever considered even worshiping let alone serving) who wishes to make him His the first champion of his race in a millennium, and trouble follows him and his friend all the way. By the end of the book I could only hope that this will be the first book of a long series.

Weber's take on sword and sorcery might be weaker than the Honor Harrington series, but not by so much that you'd notice. He has fun taunting the cliches of the genre, but doing so respectfully, even while paying homage to those who went before. Fewer pages for far better payoffs than George RR Martin has ever delivered.
