The first book in the DEMONTECH series described how 2 marines managed to flee the invasion of the country their ship was visiting and gather a small following of fellow refugees in the process. This second book expands on that. They are still wandering and looking for a way to catch a ship back to their home but it is becoming harder and harder. The bad guys are after them and route after route is blocked. They are also picking up more refugees and stragglers.
Most of the refugees are just that. They are helpless women and children but they are also picking up the occasional soldier of defeated armies. Sometimes they have to fight. That leads them to a singular position in this world. These are the only guys to fight the bad guys and WIN. That makes them hero and attracts more followers. That is also how privates Haft and Spinner become "Lords" Haft and Spinner.
These guys are the stuff of heroes but they don't have the training to lead large bodies numbering in the thousands. That they succeed and even save a town makes them more heroic.
There is more yet to come. The wandering is still not at an end and the BAD guys are still expanding their empire. I look forward to more.
