Product Description Raingun is a heroic fantasy novel.
Rick Rivoire is flush with money, women, and prospects. He protects his country as one of the Rainguns, an elite regiment of spellcasting cavalry.
But the national policy drifts further and further into slavery and religious persecution, sparking rebellion. Joining the rebels could land Rick on a prison ship, in slave-irons --- or atop the same gallows where he watched his father hang.
The alternative looks no brighter. The status quo imperils Rick's hard-won self-respect. Supporting tyranny would doom his dream to emulate the valiant swordswoman who braved a den of monsters to rescue the lonely, terrified nine-year-old boy he once was.
Rick can't stay above the fray forever. He must either defend an aristocracy whose actions disgust him --- or risk everything he has.
This is the first book of The Talan Revolt. This book contains graphic violence and some explicit sex. It is intended for adults only.My Review:This was a nice book because not only was it about "infantry" and rebels, but it was also a fantasy with spells. I really liked Rick and his personal dilemma. He had to choose between doing what he was told and what he felt was right. This made me think of past wars and how soldiers feel. Especially in WWII. The book was a little long, but it was very involved. There was a lot of character developement and I really started to feel bad for Rick. If he was never saved when he was 9, then I wonder if he would feel differently. I can not wait to read the second book in this series and look forward to reading more from this author. I am giving this book a 4/5.
