The book has likeable characters and an interesting plot. Fairly easy read. However, there are times when the story telling gets lost in the weeds. Too much technical jargon when describing the battles and the movements of the ships - sometimes very challenging to follow. If you like military science fiction this is a good read and belongs on your list. The other small but annoying trope used by the author is the Syndicates. The CEOs of the Syndicates are the bad guys. Seriously lazy back-story. Yeah, a war between Apple and the United Nations. Generally enjoyable read and I will continue onto the next book in the series.
