Toy Soldiers is a short, but gripping tale that explores many different moral and ethical themes. Although short, it covered a lot of ground, and contained a lot of very good character development. From Kaufman, the financial genius, to Sebu, the leader of the child army, the author creates many different characters that any reader will thoroughly enjoy.
My only gripe would have been that I would have liked more backstory for the main characters. The author does a good job building the characters, but it isn’t entirely clear to me how these characters would have developed this way. Sometimes the actions of the characters seem like quite a leap.
For anyone who enjoys an exciting political fiction novel (which isn’t too heavy on politics, but more on action), I would strongly recommend this book!
I was given a review copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
