Spoils of War (Book 1 of The Imperial Marines Saga) Kindle Edition
They thought they could force her to conform. They were wrong.
Inside a dystopian school in the Singularity, the twelve-year-old girl known as One Twenty-Four struggles to survive. Failure to conform means death at the hands of her teacher.
Assuming her clone sisters don't kill her first.
The Terran Empire has tasked Imperial Marine Lieutenant Grace Tolliver to lead her platoon into the Singularity as a privateer. Her mission: to tear a great bloody strip off their enemies and to take anything that isn't nailed down.
The collision of this unlikely pair will change the humanity in ways that no one could predict. If they survive.
Author's Note: This novel takes place more than five centuries before the Empire of Bones series and the events unfolding here have implications there.

But in this story, it takes places before the Fall and explains more about a certain character from the other serie known as Andrea 124 who happens to be a Singularity ruling clan. Who fell into a certain MCO on the run.
Terry Mixon did a fantastic job on writing from an adult and child POVs in character buildups. Ima keep reading the next installment to find out what's in store for them.
After that it becomes conventional military science fiction with a rather ordinary supergirl heroine. Uh, duh, been there read that about a hundred times lately. Nothing unusual about the way its done here except for the first third. And, um, well when she uses her teacher's codes, that's pretty good.
The next novel in the series? Forget it. Utterly conventional. Read this one and quit.
One Twenty-Four is a genetic clone of the Andrea Line - one of the ruling lines of the Singularity. She has been trained from birth to be compliant, follow the rules and not deviate from the norm. Unfortunately (or fortunately), One Twenty-Four is not so normal and allows her curiosity to get the better of her - dangerous in a society of conformity. Her life collides with former Imperial Marine, Grace Tolliver and she finds not everything she has been taught about the Empire is correct.
Spoils of War, overall, was an enjoyable mix of action and exploration of how different human societies interact with each other. As well as the dangers of not understanding different ideologies and cultures or the impact of the latter in shaping human ideas. Looking forward to the next book :)

Characters have been well thought and the conflict between the 2 powers explained well
The possibilities of where this series could go are endless, although I suspect the most obvious one is where the author plans to go.
2nd book in the series already bought
Settled in the same universe as his "Empire of Bones" series, it is by no means necessary that you have pre-read that series. You will love it anyway.
With this book Terry is fleshing out that shared universe and dives right into action from the start.
It is very well written and you will likely not want to put it down until you are finished with it.
