A well written story, with a good plot.
My only complaint is that the headings for a change of scene were a bit confusing because they weren't in a different font - but that was a very minor grievance.

Plenty of action but the characters are cardboard, totally one dimensional so consequently there is no involvement for the reader which makes for very dull reading. Eventually it got so dull, I gave up.

2.0 out of 5 stars Great story. Poorly edited. No ending. 16 Jun. 2013
By Chrysis<LT> - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The premises for the story are great, the plot well layed out and credible. However the editing is somewhat inconsistent and lacking (I get the feeling this story was written over a long period of time) and the first 2/3 of the book is riddled with Marine Corps minutae. I do like a good military sci-fi, but sometimes the story grinds to a halt just to get everything correct Corps-wise. Every soldier gets their full name, with initials and correct rank, no matter if they are blown to pieces but two sentences later, and nothing seems to be to small a detail to be mentioned. At the last third of the book, the author laxes a bit which helps improve the pace of the story.

When it comes to characters I can't really remember any of them, there are too many and none get's enough focus to stick.

However the story is never finished. The book ends almost mid-sentence. So unless you plan to buy the sequel, if there is one, don't start reading this one.

3.0 out of 5 stars What Happened? 2 Jun. 2013
By Paul Kohl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
David Sherman has written many books in the Star Fist series in conjunction with Dan Cragg. This is a solo effort and I think the writing suffers. The plot is okay but the book needed a good editor. The writing is repetitive with some paragraphs repeated almost verbatim in multiple locations. There is too much explication of terminology. The words would have been better spent on plot advancement. The book contains a large number of characters and takes too long to focus on those that will remain as part of the series. I'd say character development is lacking but you don't expect much of that in these types of books. The publisher is new for Sherman and I would be leery of buying additional books if they don't put more effort into the basics of publishing.

3.0 out of 5 stars Book in doubt 23 Jun. 2013
By azog - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I've read, and greatly enjoyed, the Starfist series, where Sherman was a co-author. Still not sure what happened to that series, or why there hasn't been any more releases. In any event, based on my experience with Starfist, I figured would give this book a shot. Being a book written solo by Sherman, I feel the strengths from Starfist are missing. For instance, I am finding myself unable to connect, or practically even care about the characters here. There are just too many characters introduced and then quickly killed off. Those characters that seem to be more long-lasting are one-dimensional and the politicians are simply a bunch of raging d-bags.

Editing here is a concern, and looking at some other reviews, I find I am not alone in this. A number of typos and general typesetting/text formatting errors are apparent. I would point out the manner by which sub-headings within chapters are used, the types of sub-headings which normally indicate a context shift. There is no whitespace or any other visual clue that the subheading is not part of the prose. Such visual clues to context shift are necessary to maintain flow, else you begin reading the sub-heading as part of the normal story, only to find yourself disrupted when the sentence does not make sense. There are also ambiguous situations which I feel could also be addressed with editing. Having to read and re-read a paragraph or two several times causes the same disruption.

As for the story itself, well, I did find it interesting enough that I would be tempted to read the second volume in this series. And yes, this is apparently part of a series, as the conclusion of this book is anything but concrete, leaving you hanging almost in the middle of the action. I do hope the second volume is better edited.

4.0 out of 5 stars Half a STARFIST is better than none. 12 Jun. 2016
By Mr.Fink - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
As you read this story you can tell that there is a difference in style from his collaboration on the STARFIST series. I just really hate cliff-hangers like this one. Hope a second book is in the works & soon to be published.
