This book has everything to keep the reader awake and desperate for the next chapter. It is packed with more action than sardines in a can. It is very well written in a way to satisfy the reader who just wants lots of battles but also to the discerning types who love to study the strategy. Every page had me on a knife edge. It has successes, failures, spies, traitors, rebellion, heroes, even the re-use of prisoners. Unfortunately for me my favourite character was killed in action. When I served in the armed forces, I was only aware of the action taking place in front of me, I didn’t know what was happening beyond a hundred metres on either side. Like many of us at the sharp end we knew nothing about the planning and strategy that controlled the action. Here the author builds up the campaign in steps from all angles so we can anticipate the problems if say the air-cover arrives late or two armies fail to meet up where and when expected. I found it a bit difficult to comprehend the whole scenario so I took to drawing maps and moving toy soldiers over the battlefield. This led me to wonder if the author could publish large-scale maps of Tranquillity on boards, or even build a war-game based on the Human Legion exploits.
A thoroughly enjoyable book, worth every cent and I would award it more than 5 * if I could. Well done JR Hartley!

Right from the first pages JR Handley, who is from a military background, places you straight into the action. This is a fast paced novel with realistic battlefield scenarios and very strong lead male and female characters. The authors personal experience mixed with obvious meticulous research and whit make this a must read novel. If you haven't read this series yet then I urge you to start, military sci fi at its very best.

Good read, keeping the Human Legion in the spotlight. Bringing in some characters from the original books allows you to identify with the book quickly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Favorite so Far 26 April 2017
By Corey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I've come to expect fast paced sci-fi/space marine action from this series, this book turned the action up a notch. My two biggest gripes with the last book were that the main character (Lance) disappeared and there was A LOT of planning. This book jumped back in time to follow Lance, my fav character, and gave me a TON of action. At first I was confused about the time jumping backwards, but the author did a good job of weaving the two timelines together. Great and fast read, I'm ready for the next.

3.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyed Read, But 24 April 2017
By Sgt Maj EMP - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Coulda been a 4. Author uses a common Military Historical approach, technique in this story -- think S.L.A. Marshal, Nolan, Hammel (many,many more) and Pork Chop Hill, Hue, Khe Sahn. I'm good w that but technique works better if you take a little time developing the other characters before using their POV and killing them off within a small chapter.

I have to admit being lost at times. Slang was used and I had no idea what it meant, referred to. I guess you have to read all 7(?) Human Legion books to get it. I looked on web site but no answers there.

I think some sort of synopsis, explanation -- cleverly done or just plain spit it out -- in beginning would be extremely helpful. I don't know where this series falls in from timeline + in respect to other series and revolt.

Last, TO&E ? I think I read twice where squad is 40 or so? USMC has 13, Army 11 in squad with 2,3 fire tms respectively. The buzz words are there but flesh it out some. Fire Tm, squad, platoon, etc. I'm aware of only 2 infantry weapons -- SR 71(?) n mini cannon. Oh, n grenade launcher of sorts n some kind of artillery. I admit that I am semi fanatical w minutia, nuances of TO and weapons -- who has what, where and how many and distance and effects.

When authors make sense w TO&E, adds credibility, realism from just another RPG gamer to someone who at least does the research.

I know author is vet from my online search, so I know he can do in sleep. Other author who 'owns' universe -- don't recall anything that he's a vet but that's ok as long as you take time n trouble to understand what you're writing about and not on an Xbox or Saving Private Ryan. Between that and Platoon, everybody is an expert of nothing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Grittily realistic hard core military sci fi 25 April 2017
By The Mysterious Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
If you enjoy grittily realistic hard core military sci fi then you will enjoy this book. Strong characters and plot with great action sequences done in a way that comes off as true. A neat trick to pull off. A fun book to read. Very much recommended.
