The series isn't really a space opera, as it might initially appear to be. Instead, it focuses on a very small group of characters, all military trainees ...some willing, some not so willing ...and develops them in surprising ways. These young trainees are forced to learn a lot about themselves as the story moves along. What they think are assets to team-building, for example, sometimes turn out to be liabilities. And the reverse is also true. These are compelling and very believable characters. Some are gung-ho wannabe young leaders. Some are reluctant and frightened conscripts. The POV character, Milo, is an excellent observer, who learns to function while still remaining true to his own set of priorities. At least thus far. But he is constantly challenged, not only by his teammates and the shadowy people pulling the strings, but also by his own realisation that he CAN do many things he didn't think he could, but that he's not as good at them as he wants to be.
The series takes place in a fictional sci-fi setting. The state of the characters' world is not made clear at all. This is excellent, from a story point of view. We watch these characters coping with a situation they don't actually understand, and we're never sure if they're getting it right or not. They are required to meet certain criteria, as they move through their training, but they are never given the big picture. The story is very suspenseful, in that we don't know what's happening any more than they do.
This author knows how to build believable paranoia, as well as resignation in the characters. And he also builds pride in what they have been able to accomplish ...even though they aren't sure what its purpose is.
I think this is an excellent series. The mistake a reader might make is thinking it's a typical space opera, and find the development seems slow and the goals unclear. But that's actually the point of the story. People often have to learn to function without knowing what's happening behind the scenes. The uncertainty IS the story, at least thus far. I think the pace is perfect.
