Excellent Start to a New Series
Reviewed in the United States on November 7, 2016
If you have enjoyed Jay Allan’s other series, this new one has a lot of similarities as well as some big differences. The similarities are a military conflict in the far future with a space navy and marine focus – that’s about it. The big difference is the scenes are really focused on the leaders of the two opposing captains of space battleships, and the trials and tribulations each are facing as well as the individual sacrifices the individual spacers and marines are making in order to win the battle. There is a lot of reflection in here, which to me has the best-developed character set the author has in any of his series and I think it’s the best novel of Allan’s I’ve read: I am ready for the next episode in the series.
I picked this up during a Kindle promotion for just 99 cents vs. its normal pricing of $4.99: I certainly received more than $4.99 worth of entertainment value out of this one. If you like military fiction with a bit of a futuristic plot to it, I would highly recommend this one.
