Shock Action (Drop Trooper Book 7) Kindle Edition
That’s what he keeps trying to tell Fleet Intelligence, but when he and Vicky signed back up, they agreed to follow orders. And their orders are to keep working for the Corporate Security Force and find out what the private paramilitary force knows about Zan-Thint and his plans to use Predecessor technology against the Commonwealth.
The trouble is, the CSF doesn’t seem to care about Zan-Thint anymore. They send Cam and Vicky and a crew of mercenary Drop Troopers to an isolated mining world called Portent. Their job? To put down a rebellion by wildcat miners who don’t want the Corporate Council stealing the fruits of their labor. Somehow, they’ve been able to hire the baddest mercenaries in the Commonwealth to hold onto their planet.
Stuck leading a crew of cutthroat mercenaries who want nothing more than to slaughter the wildcat miners and take their rhenium ore, facing down an even more cutthroat band of mercenaries who’ll kill anyone they consider a threat, Cam and Vicky try to negotiate a course between the two and figure out who’s actually paying the mercenaries and why the Corporate Council is really interested in a backwoods rhenium mine.
Because nothing on Portent is as it seems…and their allies might be just as ready to kill them as their enemies.
Book 7 in the Amazon Bestselling Drop Trooper series by Rick Partlow is here. It's Military Sci-Fi the way it's supposed to be!

About the author
Top reviews from the United States
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Aside from the sloppy and rushed editing, this is an EXCELLENT story with complex and interesting characters, exciting action sequences, and unexpected plot twists. A perfect blend of space opera elements, classic military Sci-fi, and spy thriller rolled into one that would have easily made my 5-star list if not for the lack of editing.
Just lucky, I guess.
And now he is about to suit up and do it again.
I hope his luck holds.
Rick lays out a fantastic yarn with all the realistic aspects of the characters and combat. And yes, you always will want more. Because he takes you by the hand...

A good read all the same but there are lot of typo's and non sensical sentences, rushed editing I would imagine to get the book out but could do with a little more care when proof reading/editing.
I look forward to the next book in the series.
