So...we meet a mysterious stranger with genetically enhanced powers and military skills, trying to escape his vicious past and who gets involved in a civil war scenario. Not that much revealed yet of his back history, maybe more will be revealed in the trilogy, which I do have. With that said, it was a good SciFi Civil War yarn, enjoyed the problems faced by Blackhawk who basically wanted to leave his somewhat mysterious past behind, and is forced to 'PICK UP HIS GUN AGAIN'. I liked Lucerne, appreciated his problems, trying to be honorable in a war situation where that could mean disaster. Blackhawk is a total warrior with suppressed emotions and he was trying to leave that behind, but he finds himself in the position of letting suppressed emotions possibly affecting military judgement. I thought it was a pretty good book.
Jay Allan does a great job describing the harshnes of battle, courage and grit, the longing for home and family - as a reader, I get a true sense of the weight and responsiblity that is on the shoulders of each soldier as they endure the fields of battle. The near repitition of what soldiers - NCOs, officers and privates - have to endure is a hallmark of Allan's writing that some may find annoying, but for me, it drives home the pain, blood-lust, weight of responsibility, grit and courage of those that choose a military career. War is hell at the end of the day, but soldiers are human and like us all they long for the simple comforts of home and family. Jay Allan aces giving the reader a true picture of the soldiers life. Overall, Blackhawk offers both insights into the Far Stars universe and knowledge about Blackhawk himself. There is plenty of action and intrigue which will keep any reader engrossed in this new story set some 25 years before the events in the Far Stars trilogy.
The action is constant and terrifically well-written. The characters are typical for Jay Allen - described with his standard attention to detail, and brought to life in the pages of this exciting story. They live, fight, love and die as Jay brings us into the world of the Far Stars, the beginning of a remarkable series of tales.
This sci-fi space opera set far in humanity's future will give you a front row seat to the lives in the Far Stars. Don't miss this introduction to brand new heroes in an all new series.
