A lot like the Carrera Series
Reviewed in the United States on December 19, 2019
Ok, pretty much the Carrera series, only on Earth. If you like those you'll like this one. Carrara like military genius...check. Hot younger chick that has sex with Carrera like figure...check. Sergeant-major on his way to younger hot chick....check. World in decline because Trans-national Progressives....check. Carrera like figure has plan to save Earth from "Tranzi's"..... check. A great deal of logistics masquerading as story...check.
Sadly, this book hasn't aged well. Trump got elected. US not on its way to Sweden. Price of oil down, not because Tranzi economics are killing global economy , but because of frakking. Trade NOT collapsing. In short, this isn't a Conservative Version of "Malaise" or the Club of Rome circa 2000. Sorry Tom world has not gone to Hell in a Hand Basket And personally, I get annoyed by either Left or Right Wing hand-wringing & Despair
That having been said, if you liked A Desert Called Peace, you'll like this. I'm ordering the second one. It's derivative, and off-base, but entertaining. Again, think of it as a Harlequin Romance for war nerds. They operate in a mythical world too, but people keep reading them.
