I have read all the books in this series so far. The expression "ripping good yarns" comes to mind. I recommend these to any sci-fi fan, though they are not really bringing anything to the table which has not been done before.
Mr Thomas, I think, has a very good understanding of what makes people tick. In truth I am less certain about his understanding of military strategy but that does not detract from the read.
Two gripes - the proof reading could be better - "simper fi" instead of "semper" and "stone" instead of "stun" are two examples.
For me the main beef is the continuous use by the author of stood instead of standing and sat instead if sitting. I know this misuse is becoming common, even on the BBC, but it makes me cringe every time.
I will buy the next in the series. I hope it continues to avoid the sort of same old.... which often spoils multi volume series.
