Events surrounding the protagonist have begun to shift. The build up to war consequently changes the world as Harris knows it. In this book, the deck of cards really does come crashing down. War is set to break out, political squabble and deception leads to secrets being uncovered, moves being made, and ultimately battles ensue that end with entirely unexpected outcomes.
Throughout the story the protagonist Harris has to deal with the confrontation at every turn. Not just during the battles of worlds, but also on a personal basis. Society's views him as a danger, an outlawed clone model, unpredictable and violent by nature, and he in turn battles inwardly with this very same problem, this genetic conditioning and addiction to battle.
There is a lot to this book that will move the series forward in interesting ways. Kent's writing is once again an exacting flurry of well written events driven by the relationships between the increasingly developed visceral main characters, the personal motivation of the supporting characters, the tactical scenarios that occur during battles, and lastly the important neo-politics that underpins and ultimately help ties it all together.
As mentioned by Kent at the back of the book, this second book does weave into its story at points early on, reiterated information from book one. This means that anyone can enter the series at book two.Read more ›
I am not really into military sci-fi, so I was surprised how quickly I got pulled into this series. Its fast paced with twists and turns.
I really am rooting for Harris,with his struggles personally and trying to find where he fits in and with his UA identy and the prejudices he faces.
The book is well written with the twists easy to follow. Some are real surprises.
I would recommend this series to anyone and everyone. Its not just a military hoo haaa tale with blood and guts but a well thought out and portrayed journey.
If you read (as I did) the first one then this book back-to-back you may find the recapping of factions and plot slows the start of the book down a bit, however for someone who has left a bit of a gap or hasn't read the first one this can work really well and could easily act as a stand-alone novel.
I'd give this 4.5 stars, just because it took me a little longer to get into it, but once I was in I really enjoyed it. Fully recommended.
(Full disclosure: I received this free from the publisher to review. The opinions expressed in this review are my own and are not altered by this. In this case I would quite happily have paid for it!)
Book 1 was brilliant. Hardly put it down, and as soon as it was finished, i was ready to tuck into book 2 straight away. Again, it was brilliant. Fast paced and plenty of action. Harris has his flaws and although he is a good marine, he certainly has his fair share of luck. It's particularly satisfying to know that he isn't some bad ass marine that blows everyone away and can't be beaten. Some of the other characters have been built up slowly too, possibly because Steven L Kent knew there would be more novels to expand his characters and universe?
Personally, this series is fast becoming one of my favourite series of books.

Should start by reading the first one, Republic.
The only problem is that once you start you will have to read tem all.
