He works in 'Moral Philosophy' and that is grand.
Reviewed in the United States on December 3, 2020
As an adventure book, this is a worthy successor to the first in the series. I appreciate how he paints contemporary day issues right here on Earth as problems to be dealt with hundreds of years in the future on another world.
People with a bent for rigorous presentation of views might want to save the Authors Afterword for their permanent library. Kratman is trained as a lawyer and makes his points with the logically precise inevitably of an avalanche.
I have read him prior to now in his collaborations with John Ringo (the Live Free or Die series of Ringo is a favorite of mine.) Now I have discovered an author of power and imagination (and humor-he names an airplane a NA-23 for example). I will take the time to seek out his other works, particularly in this series.
An author who quotes Col. Ralph Peters, Churchill, The Bible, and Heinline has an intellectual reach that I find admirable.
Recommended as an adventure story and even more so as an examination of important aspects of our current society.
