Book Description

Peace Army is book 2 of the Peace Warrior Trilogy.

* * * * * * * * * *

It’s been six years since Grant Justice was brought back to life to help the Peaceful citizens of Earth defeat the Minith.

Life should be good. The Minith are gone. Grant now has a loving wife and a remarkable son. He is a hero to the society that once shunned him.

But Grant hasn’t been taking life easy. He’s been recruiting fighters away from Peace. He’s been cobbling together an army from the dregs of society
and training them to fight. Which is a good thing, because another alien Mothership is headed their way. It will reach Earth in less than a week.

Grant and his forces have been preparing for this day. They must be the… Peace Army.

What readers have had to say about Peace Warrior, book #1 in the trilogy:

"I'll get right to the point: Peace Warrior is a flawlessly-written science fiction adventure with sympathetic characters and a fast-paced plot..." -- Isabela Morales, The Scattering Blog Review

"...an exciting and thought provoking story that asks a lot of important questions about what it means to be human." Julie Ann Dawson, Bards & Sages Publishing

"This is a great sci-fi read - compelling, fast-moving and provocative. I've read a lot of science fiction over the years and this is as good or better than many of my favorites..." David W. Jenks

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic follow up April 26, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
"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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hawk Hits it Again! April 26, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well-polished novel January 12, 2014
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?

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Interlude to get to the end. December 18, 2011
By dray
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I can not hardly wait to get through this book and read the last installment to this trilogy. I do love it when there is more than just one or two parts to a story. They should all be at least three parters if not ten part dekalogies. This makes it a good way to start taking it back to the man.

Definitely an author to watch

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good book September 1, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read the first book and was hesitant in purchasing the second. The second book is a much more polished and well written book. I read it very quickly and the story was rich in detail and kept me wanting for more. Steven keep on writing I am impressed with your second book. You will quickly have a fan base but need to write more.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Worthy Sequel August 30, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Once again author Steven Hawk has taken us into the futuristic world of Earth post transformation to a peaceful society where violence of any kind is contrary to the desires of civilization. Those who have assumed this posture failed to consider, or have conveniently forgotten, the mantra: Freedom isn't Free!

Hawk does an excellent job of developing both his characters and the scope of the plot. He creates additional worlds and the cultural milieu that surrounds these new alien races. We learn how society develops, how interaction between galactic culture thrives on the desires of one race, over the submission of another. The message is clear: for peace to succeed, it must be desired by all parties. Sooner or later, someone will come along who feels their superiority justifies subordination of the other to achieve their ends.

The Peace Warrior series is both a thrilling read and a commentary on human (and alien) weakness. The message is delivered. While peace is a desirable goal, it cannot come at the price of submission.

Well done, Mr. Hawk.

Gordon Ryan

5.0 out of 5 stars Hooked as well. July 4, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.
