The author admits this books is based on the film Zulu, she claims "loosely" but in reality the heart of the book comes straight from the film. That is bad both because it is unoriginal and because the comparison between the two doesn't help the book, Zulu has depth of character and intelligence that this book completely lacks.
There is nothing original here, the twist is obvious and the non-Zulu elements aren't much more original.
The characters are bland clichés with no depth or personality.
I have 3 more of this series in front of me so I don't even have to waste money buying them but I'd rather throw them away unread than waste any more time on this vapid rubbish.
There is good military sci-fi out there, why anyone would read this instead I don't know.
