Product description

About the Author

J. R. Handley is a pseudonym for a husband and wife writing team. He is a veteran infantry sergeant with the 101st Airborne Division and later the 28th Infantry Division. She is the kind of crazy that interprets his insanity into cogent English. He writes the sci-fi while she proofreads it. The sergeant is a two-time combat veteran of the late unpleasantness in Mesopotamia where he was wounded, likely doing something stupid. He started writing military science fiction as part of a therapy program suggested by his doctor, and hopes to entertain you while he attempts to excise his demons through these creative endeavors. In addition to being just another dysfunctional veteran, he is a stay at home wife, avid reader and all around nerd. Luckily for him, his Queen joins him in his fandom nerdalitry.

Disappointing and confusing book. I had read the Human Legion books and thought this would be as good but the reality was it was not. Without reading the other books how would anyone know who was who? The story line was thin and the last ten pages were taken up by the author describing different rank structures and jobs in the marines. Would have been better advised paying more attention to the story. I purchased all three books, I just hope the second two are better than the first one!

I was confused as to what was happening at the start and confused at the end but the bulk of the book was great.
It's hard to read without some understanding of the White Knight, Hardit, Human interactions. If a link to the rationale of this alternative(?) universe had been supplied I would have given another star and probably another purchase.

Having read the 5 books in the Human Legion series and become aware that a spin-off series was to be written by another author I didn’t know what to expect. Further that this is the first book written by J.R. Handley, a veteran infantry sergeant of 101st airborne division injured during 2 tours in Iraq, as a therapy to combat the demons in his head. I was not expecting a first class story. How wrong could I have been! With his practical military training and experience on the ground, the action has a real feel to it. We have left behind the shoot up and wiz of the earlier space battles and got down close to realism. I did enjoy the reaction of Sgt Scipio to the announcement that there is a rebellion in progress. He concentrates on the safety of his cadets rather than obeying orders. The delightful inclusion of a cadet sergeant wearing frilly underwear for her 16th birthday is brilliant. The story of how Sgt Scipio tackled the role of bringing a very poor squad of cadets up to standard will bring back memories of our own military training to all veterans, it certainly made my memory jump back over 60 years. This is a thoroughly good story written by someone who knows what he is writing about.
