The assault on Earth was thwarted by the destruction of the aliens' seed ship, but with Mars still under Lanky control, survivors work frantically to rebuild fighting capacity and shore up planetary defenses. Platoon sergeant Andrew Grayson must crash-course train new volunteers - all while dulling his searing memories of battle with alcohol and meds. Knowing Earth's uneasy respite won't last, the North American Commonwealth and their Sino-Russian allies hurtle toward two dangerous options: hit the Lanky forces on Mars or go after deserters who stole a fleet of invaluable warships critical to winning the war. Assigned to a small special ops recon mission to scout out the renegades' stronghold on a distant moon, Grayson and his wife, dropship pilot Halley, again find themselves headed for the crucible of combat-and a shattering new campaign in the war for humanity's future.… (mais)

Of the four books I have read so far, this one has the most space opera feel to it. Not saying that is a good or bad thing, just different in case you are expecting another military type Sci-Fi book. Because of this the plot does not move as fast in the beginning as the prior books, which is totally OK with me. I actually liked that there was a bit more development and a little less action. Though the second half of the book is all about action.

I felt this was a solid installment in the series. I have already downloaded the next two books in the series. I'm obsessed. I hope in the next book(s) we get back to fighting the aliens because I have some theories on their species and I want to see if I am right. ( )

this is the 4th novel in the series and it 's a pretty good read. I got tired of listening to the soldier tactics with weapons that are unfamiliar....it's just boring. A task force is created to go after weapons that were absconded by the previous earth leader and exist on the fringes of known space. With those absconded weapons, alien (Lankey's) can then be assaulted and driven off. Grayson puts together his team and off they go. Left on their own upon a terraformed planet, they fight other humans -- without a knowledge of the larger plan nor the logistics supplies to carry out their mission--their logisticians ought to be shot. The book ends and I'm pretty sure the next one will be a fight against aliens to save human kind. ( )

Horrible odds? Bad choices? A chance to go after the Ex-President and a whole bunch of traitorous assholes that left the home system in the lurch and freedom from the boredom of training new recruits?

Sign me up! Um. I mean, Grayson, why don't you sign up? :) Maybe your wife will come up with a bit of a surprise for you! :)

I liked this one better than the last not only because I felt like it was kinda like getting the band back together, but because the odds were horrible on a smaller and more personal scale. :) As in, those bastards! :)

Plus, the surprises in store for them really made the tale go down well, too, and even if it wasn't an unqualified success, it certainly went beyond almost everyone's expectations. :) Yay!

I can't wait for the next installment next year! :) ( )

This series continues to deliver exciting stories set within a very interesting alternate universe. Some signs of success in slowing down the Lanky Incursion are balanced by the sneaky withdrawal of the NAC leaders and their families to places unknown. That the warships and advanced technology that could combat the Lankies went with them was the height of treachery. Warring factors on Earth have united but need those ships and other weapons. A small recon force travels their recently discovered hiding place to recover these vital assets. Therein lies the tale and it is a good one. ( )

Like the other books in the series, this one is similar in feel, yet puts our hero in a completely new situation. I like this series more with each book. ( )
