This review is from: Valkyrie Burning (On Silver Wings Book 3) (Kindle Edition)
The 3rd episode in the continuing adventures of Master sargeant Aida Sorilla and the Solari Task Force sent to confront an alien aggression.
In the same way that Alexander Kent (Douglas Reeman) communicates the manouevres of a sailing ship action more effectively than C S Lewis, Evan Currie somehow manages to get across the intricacies of a space-borne action even though completely fictional far better than anyone I've read recently.
Aida's exploits too are worthy of HALO's S117 "Master Chief". The space-elevator episode is particularly good.
One gets the impression that both sides haven't really been trying their best until now, but the aliens have given away too many techy secrets, allowing the humans to leap ahead, and the humans have resisted enough to be really annoying to the point of being worth "sending the fleet". Book 4 needs to have a flame-proof cover.
