Product Description

Product Description

The Hayden War has ended and now SOLCOM and the Alliance are face to face in talks, but neither side has the slightest idea what happened in the ultimate battle of the war. Amid political jockeying and diplomatic gamesmanship, Captain Sorilla Aida has been given an assignment : Find a weakness to exploit, buy SOLCOM time to learn just what the hell happened to Valkyrie, and make sure that the Alliance isn't prepared to risk another conflict in the open.

Sorilla has problems of her own, however, and after losing so much in the war she isn't as certain of her life choices as she used to be. Unfortunately for her, the Alliance, SOLCOM, and others don't intend to let her have time to figure it out for herself.

The Hayden War is over, the Cold War is just beginning.

By Other Means is the fifth book in the On Silver Wings series

5.0 out of 5 stars Short Excellent SF 15 May 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Another brilliant military space romp from Evan Currie only let down by two things. Firstly it's relatively short and the cover of the book is rubbish and reminiscent of the worst kind of military SF. To someone new to Currie they may think the same and that would be a pity given the utter excellence of Currie's writing.

Anyway we have a tense meeting of Earth and the Alliance worlds at a space station filled with terrorists, politicians, soldiers, aliens and secret police. The story builds up nicely to Currie's usual full on ending but not forgetting to flesh out the characters and the storyline fully.

To be honest I really do think that Currie is about the best SF writer of action currently active today. He is a brilliant find and I heartily recommend him.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another excellent offering 5 Oct 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A change of emphasis this time from 'hot' to 'cold' war but this in no way diminishes Evan's excellent story telling. There is plenty of action both cerebral and down and dirty with more alien races involved than you can shake a stick at, always remembering that to other aliens, we are alien!
Thoroughly enjoyed this latest offering by probably the best currently active military sci-fi writer. Please do read the earlier books in the series before starting this one, otherwise you may find the relationships rather difficult to pick up on.

The Silver Wings series is another great read from Evan Currie ( even if, in my mind, Sorila is blonde). A great author and well worth following.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best series I've read 27 Jun 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Each book just keeps on at the same great level. A high level of writing style, combine with a great storyline makes this one of my favourite series that I can't wait for the next book!

4.0 out of 5 stars Not Quite but so nearly 13 May 2014
By Mr T
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The previous books have been very well thought through, so I expected, as usual in Evan Currie books, for this to continue. I have to say that this episode was a tiny bit below par, almost as if Evan was pausing slightly to catch his breath. Nonetheless, it was a good read with a well thought out plot and hopefully Evan will return to his usual top form with the next episode.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excelent. 12 May 2014

More thought put into this cold war arc. There is less action, if you have read all previous books and liked them then you might find this a little slow to start, but keep reading it gets better.
