Why Consider the IX Series?
If you're considering something new to read, something with action, adventure and intrigue - something that spans time and space, bringing diverse cultures together in a crucible of fire - then look what some of the leading lights of speculative fiction have to say about The IX:
Weston deftly weaves the horrors of the Horde stealing human life-essences, with the beauty of his prose and imagery. Action-packed and highly recommended.
The IX has taken me back to the books I enjoyed in my youth (Jerry Pournelle's King David's Spaceship or Gordon Dickson's Hour of the Horde) It flows wonderfully. There's constant motion, & Weston takes the story in unexpected directions that are intriguing & fun.
Weston knows how to keep the reader on the edge of the seat without feeling as though the mission will never end. This is a complex combination of history, imagination & science fiction magic as is available today.
Grady Harp: Hall of Fame/Top 100 /Vine Reviewer
When it comes to science fiction, I want a book that captures me from page one and never gives me a reason to want to escape. I want a book that forces me to stay up until 3 a.m., because there is no point at which it is ideal to put it down. I want a book whose characters and plots are complex and intelligent, but elegantly crafted with the minimum of distraction. The IX delivers.
A brilliant & amazing synthesis of military, horror and far-future science fiction.
Nebula Award Winner Michael A. Armstrong
The author's knowledge of military history & his speculations about what might have happened to the legendary Ninth Roman Legion have led to an amazing trip through time & space to a world where things are not ever as straight-forward as they seem. Blending in believable science & classic elements of old Westerns, Weston has created a truly delightful story.
This Dark Matter
If you come back from watching Star Wars: The Force Awakens and find yourself pining for a galaxy far, far away with similar elements, I highly recommend The IX.
The IX is the most inventive science fiction novel I have read since "Stranger in a Strange Land". That's saying a lot. The plot is highly complicated, and yet so clearly and gracefully written that it is easy to follow. The ending is wildly inventive and too brilliant to give away. Suffice it to say I ended the book with tears in my eyes.

And you can understand why.
How many series do you know of that brings you Cowboys and aliens? Roman legionaries and soul-sucking monsters? And modern-day Special Forces operatives with a kick-ass attitude?
The IX Series.
