This series is a very interesting premise. There is no simple good guy bad guy scenario operating here and I like the way the author deals with the situation around and before the battle. Too many stories tend to be written versions of computer shoot em ups and I find the almost relentless depiction of battle to be a little tiring. This series takes a more sophisticated approach. Don't get me wrong there are still great action scenes though. I am thoroughly looking forward to the next instalment.
Well written, realistic, technically knowledgable, military sci-fi. Appealing characters, entertaining dialogue, and an interesting plot. Most importantly, tense action, which flows seamlessly from the first page to the last. I can't wait to read the third installment of this series.
It just gets better. Our characters are back in more detail and with more adventure. I love the tech detail and the old school story telling worthy of the best. Do read this 2nd installment. You will want more I guarentee!
A very good story line and very credible characters, however, having to read through an entire "Operators Manual" for every piece of equipment used gets a bit tedious. Allowing the reader to use some imagination would certainly help the story flow a bit more. Nonetheless, an enjoyable story and I look forward to any sequels.
