Coherent storyline, action packed story, tense atmosphere, presence of team members and a female character who isn't a love interest.
Not so good points:
Poor descriptions of characters (don't worry, most of them die anyway, in unsatisfactory ways that don't add much to the story), unrealistic character interactions (eg. privates talkback to Lt, wallflower general), unimaginative use of language (eg. There's a lot of "ing"s; nodding, standing, running etc. you'll see what I mean if you read this story). Several small nitpicks: The phrase "Lt Jack Strong" gets repeated many more times than is necessary, and there are a few cases of cruelty to the common apostrophe. I'm trying to provide constructive criticism rather than just criticism.
In a similar way this writer has got a serviceable idea for an Alienesque story but fumbles the delivery. A good try and I'll give points for effort, but he could do better, especially when compared to other authors in this genre: David Drake, Weber, etc. I didn't lose anything as this book cost $0, except the time taken to read it. Unfortunately there are actually worse books out there in this genre. I wouldn't read it unless you've already read all your other sci fi books and am looking for something to pass the time.
