A Soldier’s Duty by Jean Johnson


Story – 5 of 5 stars

Heat – 0 of 5 stars

Series – Theirs Not to Reason Why

Main Character – ‘Ia’ Iantha Iulia Quentin-Jones

Ia is the prophet of a thousand years at fifteen she see’s a vision of space invaders wiping out her world. She can see all the path’s of this future, there is only one tiny path that will save the future world, it will require her to leave her dreams to do what is needful to save the world.

This first book in the series tells of Ia’s beginnings and her first years in the military. It’s an extraordinary tale of devotion to a cause to save lives, convince others to follow her and doing what is necessary, as well as a tribute to all the men and women in the military who have served.

Epic sci-fi, while not a romance, it is a story of a young woman who loves deeply and fiercely, willing to give up everything for it. While there is a lot of explanation you find in all first books I am hooked every time I re-read this story it gets better.

    This is one of my most favorite series. I’ve read it a dozen times. It was totally not a genre I would ever have expected to enjoy, but I hooked almost from the beginning. I am praying the author writes more about that world. I NEED to know if IA et al are somehow catapulted into the further, or if IA is somehow the immortal and/or the Fire Girl. I at least want to read about the third human empire and Fire Girl!

      I love this series and it’s corresponding series First Salik War, I do hope the author will give us the Fire Girl story as well as the Immortal’s story. I also heard a whisper that they are looking into putting the series on audiobook, which would thrill me to no end.

        Great news for Audiobook lovers! However, I’d love to see the expression on the reader’s face as they try to read the alien words. 😂
