Days of Burning, Days of Wrath (8) (Carrera) Mass Market Paperback – July 27, 2021
Enhance your purchase
When Patricio Carrera’s family was murdered by Salafist terrorists aided and abetted by the fleet of alien Earth, the only restraint on his ruthlessness and ambition was also removed. Now, after decades of war and preparation for war in his adopted homeland of Balboa, the last of the Tauran Union Expeditionary Force collapses and is herded into prison camps and ships, where their re-education commences.
An Islamic rebellion explodes inside the Tauran Union, bringing the governments and the bureaucracies to their knees . . . except when they’re hauled up by their necks on lampposts. In neighboring Santa Josefina, the Taurans’ Task Force Jesuit is pinned into one small corner of the country, helplessly awaiting destruction. At sea, the Balboan classis and the remaining fleet of the Zhong Hegemony battle for the supply lines that keep the invading Zhong Army in Balboa alive, while the legions, now rid of the Taurans, redeploy against the Zhong, vengeance and massacre in their hearts and minds. And finally, Hamilcar Carrera, Patricio’s young son, stands poised on the bridge of a clandestine assault transport, ready to obliterate the last enemy base on his planet, even as a small ship is poised to remove the alien interstellar fleet overhead.

The intricacies of the plot, the depth of the characters, and Kratman’s wide understanding of history and military matters make him the master of this genre. He is a retired LtCol (USA) with a better grasp of tactics, strategy, weapons, and human nature than most generals. While this book will stand alone, if you haven’t read the rest of the series, I urge you to do so. In this book, the good guys finally go over to the offensive and lay the ground work for taking the fight back to Earth. Not to be missed.

Some typos and odd formatting in Kindle version as of Aug2020, nothing major.
I hope the series continues, old Earth needs to thought a valuable lesson: do not be a jerk to your colony, like the British Empire has done to Merica!
