New Favorite Sci-Fi series!
Reviewed in the United States on August 26, 2016
I can't say enough great things about the Frontline series from Marko Kloos. I just wrapped up book 4, Chains of Command, and it further cements the series as one of my favorites in the Sci-Fi genre. The Characters continue to develop and grow into their increasing responsibilities in the NAC, but their increase rank does not keep them out of the line of fire for very long. Where many other military science fiction series seem to lose the excitement as the characters increase in rank and their story becomes more politically based, Kloos manages to keep his characters involved in the action.
The more I read Frontlines, the more I start to compare them to Wraith Squadron series of the StarWars Legends EU by Aaron Allston. Both story lines are ripe with action, a fair amount of humor, and the character development continues perfectly from book to book .
There isn't much I could say new about the series. Chains of Command follows the same format as the previous three books, Terms of Enlistment, Lines of Departure, and Angles of Attack. The story continues back out into space to another new colony, the seemingly heaven like planet of Arcadia, where Grayson must now lead an entire platoon after accepting a promotion to lowly Lieutenant. The main villain conflict in the story is back to being human, but what side is actually the villain gets to be a much blurrier picture with the thought provoking finish on this one.
The saddest part about finishing this one is that so far I can't find a release date on the next one! These have been my turn to books for breaking my reading slump during a busy summer where the distractions have taken me away from bookstores and bookmarks far to many times for my liking. With Fall finally in the air up here in the far north, I would love a few more books of his to curl up in the reading nook with.
