2.0 out of 5 stars Transformers meets Starship Troopers
This is the first of Travis Taylor's books I have read and I don't think there will be a second. It starts well enough and in the first few chapters I thought I was in for a treat but alas it was not to be so.

This is the first of Travis Taylor's books I have read and I don't think there will be a second. It starts well enough and in the first few chapters I thought I was in for a treat but alas it was not to be so.

The story of the battle between the "separatists" and the United States is set at a frenetic pace and uses machines that could have come out of a SiFi comic but the author assumes we know all about there capabilities. The rate at which the casualty numbers increase would make poor reading for any recruiting officer of the period.

The weakest point of the story is the hero senator who after many years in politics takes up arms to out Rambo, Rambo.

I think this book should have been kept for the US domestic market as the political implications of the use of United States to mean the whole of earth and some planets, with all the ships styled USS sticks in the throat of a non US citizen.
