Chevalier (War Horses Book 1) by Scott Warren – Review by Rebecca Hill

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is book one in a series and was definitely not what I was expecting. I don’t think I have ever read a sci-fi book with a military theme. It doesn’t take place on Earth. The main character is Rande “Vandal” VanDelle, and he is from a planet called Teutonia. As a contractor working on the tanks, Vandal never intends to see any real action. However, that all changes when he takes a tank out and comes under military fire and has to make life or death decisions. It was a fun book, and even if this isn’t a normal book for you, it might just surprise you.

4 Stars! 🌟🌟🌟🌟

This book was a nice, pleasant surprise and out of my normal comfort zone in my reading, but I was totally intrigued by the cover so I decided to dive right in.

This military sci-fi we get to know Rande “Vandal” VanDelle and he is part of the Chevaliers and works on the MBUs or large tanks. When Vandal decides to take an MBU out and about on patrol….he comes under attack. Battling back and trying to stay alive Vandal has choices to be made…….will Vandal join the continuing fight?

Choices, action, danger and intrigue all wrapped up in this really good story!

Can I add I love the fact the author added a glossary of terms that helped me as well with some of the terminology and that is a plus for me.

This was a really interesting book to read, it’s so out of my comfort zone but I was looking for something a little different to read and the synopsis grabbed my attention so I thought I would give it a go. I think the first thing I have to say how well the book was written, the author had great attention to detail and I actually imagined what I was reading more than I thought I would – this was a pleasant surprise. I’ve read very few science fiction books so I read this a little slower than my usual books and I was very grateful for the glossary with some of the different terms used in the story – that was really helpful for me as a reader and definitely aided my enjoyment a little more.
I think this book would be a huge hit with sci-fi readers – I would definitely recommend it.

This is a genre that I typically do not read but was captivated by the synopsis and cover art. I am so glad that I read this book as I learned many things that I would not have otherwise known had I not read this book. The way that Scott Warren wrote this book had me captivated from the first couple of chapters. I have not read any books by this author and cannot wait to read more of the books in this series. I will now take more chances on books that are outside of my typical go to reads and this one was wonderful and had I decided to not read it, I would have missed out on a terrific read!

Chevalier (War Horses Book 1) by Scott Warren

Chevalier is the first book in the War Horses Series and is a action packed Sci-Fi Adventure that I truly enjoyed reading. This is my first book I’ve read by this author and I’m fairly new to Mecha genre. The title and the cover totally fascinated me so I had to see what this was all about and Wow not what I expecting but better than I ever imagined. Get ready to be pulled into one fascinating story that will keep you turning the pages till the end. This is a Military Sci-Fi with Mecha soldiers that is packed with action, adventure, drama and so much more. I highly recommend reading this book to find out what happens next. Its definitely one of the most entertaining I’ve read in a while. I look forward to reading more from this Author.

Scott Warren won a loyal reader in me from this book! I thought from a glance at the cover that I would enjoy it, but I never expected that I would have loved it so much. This Sci-Fi read is full of action in every chapter and the world building is remarkable!

Rande ‘Vandal’ VanDelle is our main character, and he is in for more than he bargained for. He works as a veteran tank mechanic until he’s attacked while he works on a tank. There is nothing scarier than a literal trial by fire as he must learn how to operate and fight these tanks to save his life. Will he be able to pick up enough to scrape by, or will Vandal be overthrown?

The story felt so real with the author’s incredibly detailed depiction of each scene. I am eagerly awaiting the second book in this series as well as picking up others by this author. I highly recommend you pick this up, you won’t be disappointed!

Great Adventure! This is where Military and Science Fiction come together. I love how the author gives you lots of feedback so that you are not walking into this blind. I also love all the descriptive and strong story line. This was my first book by this author that I read, but I can’t wait for book two.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Rande VanDelle or “Vandal” as he is more commonly known is a mechanic for the upright tanks in the Chevaliers Private Cavalry and has been for eight years and because of this, he is one of the sought out veteran mechanics there is. He manages to keep the old girls running despite the best efforts of the enemy fire they see off, but like every mechanic, he always has a favourite.

One night, after finishing routine maintenance on one of the oldest uprights in the section, Vandal asks to take it out on a routine patrol a bit earlier than planned as he really wants to test it out, after much humming and hawing, they eventually let him. He puts the machine through its paces in a way that not many other mechanics can and manages to go a bit further than planned, but he then picks up a threat message on his sensors.

Not sure what to do, he reports in, but when he hears nothing back, he starts to go in the offensive so that he can try and make his way back to the barracks and help. He is not combat or pilot trained in the slightest, but he still manages to fight his way out of a life threatening situation and just about keeps his head attached in the process, albeit with some sensory overload when the call comes in to evacuate, he is helped into the transport taking them away from the battlefield.

It is when he is called upon by his superior that he thinks it is the end of his career, but instead he is given a choice, he can continue with the maintenance team and love on until his superiors grace runs out, or he can train to be a pilot and hone his skills, which he showed during the confrontation. The problem is he never really wanted to be a pilot, but he agrees to the promotion and trains hard until he is called up.

Will Vandal be able to control his designated upright tank after only a short training period against an enemy who as well as turncoats and rebels, is harbouring an elite fighting force in support of them? This is a sci-fi set in a world which could be the future of our own where old technology is pitted against new in a war of attrition with a reluctant hero at the centre of it all, in this story which will leave you on tenterhooks throughout, as military teams engage in deadly confrontations, as civilians hide away.

Vandal is a tank mechanic with the Chevaliers Private Calvary who finds himself fighting for his own life inside the company’s oldest upright tank. Battling nausea, while also battered and bruised he finds himself teaming up with his fellow Cavaliers to battle against off-world mercenaries.

This book was intense from the first few pages. With a unique and raw writing style the author sets the tone for the action, suspense and adventure contained throughout. The characters were raw and real, especially Vandal who was relatable as a tank mechanic. It was interesting to read and expanded my mind into the world of military machines. A great read!

Mech warrior
As a child one of my favourite games was Mech Warrior. This book bought back memories of playing that game. I enjoyed the action, battles, mystery, intrigue and dashes of humour. I found myself quickly swept up in a unique sci-fi adventure and vested in the characters survival. The characterisation was very well done. Now to wait for book 2.
