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.
Firstly lets get the elephant in the room dealt with - ability to write well. Unfortunately the area of military sci-fi has a goodly proportion of utterly unreadable trash in abundance and if I'm honest when I downloaded the first practically free Evan Currie self published book I was well prepared to dump it after a few pages.
I'm very glad to report that I very quickly came to the reverse opinion. He really can write very well indeed with that deceptively simple manner that some of the very best fiction writers manage. Easy to read, literary and descriptive. I hate badly written novels which is why I tend to read the likes of Hamilton or similar because one knows that the writer does possess penmanship. Evan whilst operating in a different part of the sci-fi spectrum is as good.
His charaterisation is top class and very quickly you actually care for the main people in the books.
This is the third of the four planned Warriors Wings books and it deals with the follow on events of an attack by alien species on a remote world occupied by humans. The storyline is tight, the action scenes well dealt with and Evan Currie manages to avoid too much bombast and adds a flavour of humility and pathos as well. You have to suspend a degree of scientific reality in order to allow the story to flow as Eisensteinian and Newtonian physics are generally ignored. I can deal with that for the sake of a rollicking good tale.Read more ›

I agree that the 'tether cable incident' is amazing. Such an original concept.
I highly recommend buying all three books to date and hope the saga continues!
Interesting motivations for the aliens, and aliens that are easily believable.
A hugely immersive experience on planet - you are there on the planet from page one.
