Book Description

1 May 2013
David Sherman writes about Marines with the razor-sharp realism of one of their own." Jack Campbell, Best-Selling Author, Lost Fleet Series We are not alone! In exploring and colonizing the galaxy, humanity discovers evidence of eighteen sentient species. Seventeen of them had not developed interstellar travel. Those were destroyed by the species that did reach the stars. That space-faring eighteenth decimated the human colony on the Semi-Autonomous World Troy. A Marine Force Recon platoon sent to investigate is wiped out almost to the last man. In reaction, the North American Union assembles the largest army seen since the major wars of the 20th Century. A Marine Corps Combat Force is sent to "kick in the door," backed up by a four-division Army corps to take the planet back. The initial landing is unopposed. It isn't until the fleet carrying the Army corps is approaching Troy that the enemy strikes, with devastating effect.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not good 22 April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Plenty of action but the characters are cardboard, totally one dimensional so consequently there is no involvement for the reader which makes for very dull reading. Eventually it got so dull, I gave up.

1.0 out of 5 stars Gets you interested and leaves you hanging! 17 April 2013
By GreenFAL - Published on

What? That's the end? Oh, I get it, buy my next book to see what happens. The story shapes up to a big battle (so far so good story line is interesting) you turn the page and find out that you are at the end of the book. Yes, I know it's a series. I see more of this type of book all the time and most authors can pull it off by writing a Full chapter of the overall story line with hints of whats to come. This story builds and builds, then you are at the end of the book.

3.0 out of 5 stars What Happened? 2 Jun 2013
By Paul Kohl - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
David Sherman has written many books in the Star Fist series in conjunction with Dan Cragg. This is a solo effort and I think the writing suffers. The plot is okay but the book needed a good editor. The writing is repetitive with some paragraphs repeated almost verbatim in multiple locations. There is too much explication of terminology. The words would have been better spent on plot advancement. The book contains a large number of characters and takes too long to focus on those that will remain as part of the series. I'd say character development is lacking but you don't expect much of that in these types of books. The publisher is new for Sherman and I would be leery of buying additional books if they don't put more effort into the basics of publishing.

The book is in need of an aggressive edit. The story wanders and leaves you skipping pages to try and get back into the main plot. Story line isn't bad, just needs fleshing out.

2.0 out of 5 stars Great story. Poorly edited. No ending. 16 Jun 2013
By Chrysis<LT> - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The premises for the story are great, the plot well layed out and credible. However the editing is somewhat inconsistent and lacking (I get the feeling this story was written over a long period of time) and the first 2/3 of the book is riddled with Marine Corps minutae. I do like a good military sci-fi, but sometimes the story grinds to a halt just to get everything correct Corps-wise. Every soldier gets their full name, with initials and correct rank, no matter if they are blown to pieces but two sentences later, and nothing seems to be to small a detail to be mentioned. At the last third of the book, the author laxes a bit which helps improve the pace of the story.

When it comes to characters I can't really remember any of them, there are too many and none get's enough focus to stick.

However the story is never finished. The book ends almost mid-sentence. So unless you plan to buy the sequel, if there is one, don't start reading this one.
