Book number seven of a seven book military science fiction series. I read the well printed and well bound trade paperback published by 47North in 2021. I look forward to any and all future books in the series.

Ok, here is your warning. This book is reboot of the series and ends in a cliffhanger. If you cannot wait for the number eight book after reading this book then I would wait to read it.

It has been four years since Earth threw the Lankies, a 20 meter tall dinosour advanced space traveling race, off of Mars. Many of the Earth colonies in other star systems have been destroyed by the Lankies. But, what are the Lankies doing now ?

BTW, on page 3 of the book, the author mentions that the Earth is now home to 100 billion humans in 2120, most eating flavored soy to stay alive. All burials are now cremations with the results either scattered or temporarily buried in a 10 cm (4 inch) by 20 cm (8 inch) plot. I worked my own math to see what rate it would take to get there. The current population of the Earth is 7.8 billion. First, the current rate of growth of the Earth is 1.09% according to wikipedia: List_of_countries_by_population_growth_rate

Using the current planetary growth factor of 1.09% is (1.0109)^100 * 7.8e9 = 23,062,918,119 people. Now using a planetary growth factor of 2.6% is (1.026)^100 * 7.8e9 = 101,585,256,208 people in 2120. So, the 100 billion people in 2120 is achievable but people are going to have a lot more babies.
