Title: Swords of Exodus

Series: Dead Six

Author: Larry Correia & Mike Kupari

Rating: 3 of 5 Stars

Genre: SFF

Pages: 608

Format: Kindle digital edition



Valentine and Lorenzo are back in action. Of course, Valentine is being totally mind raped Majestic in a secret prison. Lorenzo is forced to rescue him, in exchange for information on his missing brother Bob.

Exodus recruits both of them to go after a new Warlord who enslaves whole village and then has the slaves become his devoted minions. Something otherworldly would seem to going on.


My Thoughts:  Spoilers

Sadly, this suffers not only from “middle book” syndrome, but also from the death of Lorenzo AND the fact that there is no book after this. It felt like a project that got cancelled.

That really skotched my enjoyment of this. I don’t mind when the good guys die or suffer a setback, IF they have the chance to come back and be victorious. But they didn’t here and it doesn’t appear they ever will. Also, I wish the supernatural element had played a much bigger part. Just like in the first book, this was a military escapade first with just a Hint of supernatural.

      1. It’s been a while, but I remember liking all three books quite a bit.

        The third book had a lot more supernatural in it than the subtle hints in the first two, but I’m still not sure it would be enough for you.

        I was actually disappointed that there weren’t more books. There was a good plot hook at the end of the third, but they ran through its whole scenario as an epilogue, almost like the authors were tired of the series and didn’t want to give themselves the option to continue it.

        1. In regards to your last paragraph, that wouldn’t surprise me at all. Correia has a large output and regularly collaborates with other authors, so I bet his writing schedule is just filled to the brim.
