Editorial Reviews


ByJPSTOP 500 REVIEWERon August 1, 2017This is my favorite out of the three titles published so far about the Four Horsemen (not counting the collection of fourteen short stories), which does not mean that I disliked the others, far from it in fact. There are several reasons for this.

The first is that I found the characterization of the heroine - one Alexis Cromwell, the commander of the Winged Hussars - as being well-rounded, with perhaps more depth than the two previous Commanders readers may have come across when reading Cartwright's Cavaliers and Asbaran Solutions. Apart from my somewhat being subjective, this is also partly due to the two previous titles which have introduced readers to the Four Horsemen Universe, to the Galactic Union and also to a glimpse of Alexis Cromwell, as she helps out the young and inexperienced Jim Cartwright. Also present in this title is Rick Culper - Jim's boyhood friend in Cartwright's Cavaliers - and his debuts as a mercenary marine specialized in boarding actions and defending ships from boarding.

A second feature that has grown over time but was already present in previous titles are the various alien species. This is because the Winged Hussars, in addition to being the richest and the most numerous of all of the Four Horsemen mercenary companies, is also the one that relies the most on aliens, with these making up about half the numbers. You therefore get to know more about quite a few species, including MinSha or Bakulu, to name just a couple, and massive ursoïds that make excellent heavy weapon specialists. My overall favorite in this book is one Oort, a massive and relentless female Tortantula (a giant and heavily armed and armored spider) which, unlike the savage and utterly ruthless who enjoin challenges and slaughter, and always fight to the finish, develops a conscience and indulges in philosophy.

A third feature is about this mercenary company's specialty, which are space warships. You therefore get treated to a whole collection of ship-to-ship engagements, boarding actions and a couple of major space battles, something that is of course quite original in the series since the two previous volumes were more about ground and/or space to ground assault forces. These clashes are all told in a vivid, exiting and gripping way, showing the tactical and strategic mastery and superiority of Alexis Cromwell.

A further feature is that you get some glimpses of the Commander's past, of her daring twin sister, and, towards the end, an explanation for her somewhat morose and at times strange behaviors, in particular. One limitation here is that this is just about it. There is precious little about their mother although there is a bit about the origins of the company, and about the historical reference that underpins its name.

Five stars for the longest (and, for me at least, the best) of the series so far

From the Author

The Winged Hussars, least well known of the storied Four Horsemen, the only four merc units out of 100 to come back alive from the Alpha Contracts after earth made contact with the alien Galactic Union. They are also the only ones to make their trade entirely off of space naval combat. Add to that their embrace of aliens within their midst, and you have an amazingly flexible and deadly powerhouse. Led by Alexis Cromwell, direct descendant of the founders, the Winged Hussars are known throughout the galaxy, some would even say infamous. But now things are changing, and it would seem they've made some powerful enemies, or worse. Two of the Four Horsemen have fallen onto hard times, and while it seemed a coincidence at first, when the Hussars come under attack, sinister motives may be at work. These are trying times for the Hussars, someone might be hunting them. The hunters would be wise to remember, Alexis Cromwell is nobody's prey.
