"Peace Army" is everything I had hoped for after reading "Peace Warrior". Steve Hawk has really found his voice, the writing is much better, and the story arc is wonderful. I sat down and read the whole thing in one sitting, unable to pull myself away.

Two notes that keep it from 5 stars from me. First the editing was still not up to par. This was an issue with the first book, and while better here, there were still noticeable mistakes that jerked me out of the story like a bucket of cold water. Second, towards the end of the first 3rd, he introduces a subplot about gay military service. If something had been done with this, I'd be ok with it, but it was just a couple paragraph shout out to the Author's political leanings that didn't do anything to advance the story, or character development. It was barely mentioned throughout the rest of the book, and changed nothing.

I can't wait for the third book!

EDIT: The author himself responded to my comments on the subplot involving gay military service, and I feel his explanation to be quite valid. In fact, I'm only leaving my comment intact so that if anyone else feels the way I did (emphasis on the past tense), they can view the full story from the man himself.

I loved Peace Warrior and was hoping the sequel would be as good. It is even better!
Peace Army (book 2) deepens the herioc character of Grant Justice and continues to weave a compelling and suspenseful story of inter-stellar warfare. He adds yet another intriguing sentient civilization and continues to explore the balance of aggression and peace in a culture. While the story leads us to a third book (which I am looking forward to reading), there is enough action, tension and resolution in this book to make it stand on its own. While Hawk can tell a great story that moves along quickly and smoothly, he also adds a philosophic depth that deals with the fundamental issues of human (sentient) civilization. If you haven't read book 1, be sure to get that one too.
Thanks Steven, I'm hooked.

Format: Kindle Edition
On the surface, the central hero character, SFC Grant Justice, is just as much a gung-ho, space cowboy as that awesome name suggests. However, the author does a pretty good job bringing him back down to earth through oscillating bouts of overconfidence and self-pity. Creating a great hero is easy. Building one regular people can realistically identify with is a harder task.

The essence of Mr. Hawk’s story is fairly unique and intentionally funny. A time traveling soldier from the “barbaric times” is awoken by a “socially deviant” scientist over 600 years later. Against all odds, the author is able to pass this off as plausible. At least to us non-biologists. From there, our self-loathing John Wayne forces a sheepish world into a high-stakes battle against wild aliens.

This is where the story becomes overly formulaic. There were several big twists that just lack the impact because they were a bit too predictable. Still, that’s an ancient complaint for most stories. The only real weakness of this tale is the length. Mr. Hawk wraps up the story arc and all just fine, but you’re still left unsatisfied. Belly not quite full and aching for seconds. Of course, isn’t that a hallmark of a good author?

I was a beta-reader for this book, so I haven't seen the final version that came back from the editors as yet. Even at beta stage it was a very polished book and a credit to Steven. This was a great read and a terrific follow-up to Steven's first book, Peace Warrior.

Peace Army hearkens back to the science fiction novels of old, while having an interesting take on a future Earth. The last third of the novel flew past and I had to remind myself that I was reviewing and needed to make notes as the book came to its finale. Definitely one for the fans of traditional sci-fi, but most adventure fans should enjoy it too.

I found the first book compelling reading but a bit simplistic, and hoped for improvement in style and substance in the follow up. Wow, your an author now. Keep doing this quality of work and you can quit your day job and spend more time with the family. I cant fault this work at all. This is how you do it. This is what classic space opera sci-fi is about..

To the folks that faulted the hardly mentioned environmentalism and gay solders being in the book, damn, grow a pair. Must be hard finding something worthy of reading in your tiny world..

so when is the next one coming out, I'll pre-order right now..

Once i had read the first of the Trilogy i was hoping that the second book would be as good and i wasnt dissapointed. I was lucky that i had some time off work and was flying around a bit as i dont think i could have let this book go unread for long. The only dissapointing thing is that after reading book 1 and 2 i went to buy book 3 and found it hadnt been published yet. I cant wait for it to hit Amazon.

Like another reviewer, I found myself skimming over certain parts. I wouldn't say those parts were boring filler -- it was just that I couldn't wait to get to the next juicy plot point because I could see where things were headed. I found the climax to be exceptionally well-paced and written. A great finish that leaves me looking forward to the final offering of the trilogy.
