USS Walker has been cast into. What has largely been a two front
conflict threatens to become a four front one as to the genocidal reptilian
Grik menace and the fanatical Azteco-catholic Dominion campaigns are
added potential independent actions by outcast Japanese "General of the Seas"
Kurokawa and the still mysterious League of Tripoli. Luckily the multi
species Republic of Real People in southern Africa is finally stumbling
into action as an ally, and the Empire of New Britain is holding up its
end. There may even be new allies in North America. Still supreme commander
Matthew Reddy is in a bad place with his pregnant wife in Kurokawa's hands
and conflicted about whether this is affecting his strategy for dealing
with each menace. If he attempts an action against Kurokawa, is that
sound strategic thinking, or a worried husband? Luckily, long time
loose cannon and one man tank-corps Dennis de Silva is also on the job.
This is a satisfying story chunk though we see nothing of the Grik general
who may be forging his soldiers into *people* during this outing, and
very little of the Dominion side of the war. (We do have an interesting
vingette with the Grik Queen Mother, who may be more than he reagents assume..)
I started reading it as soon as I woke up yesterday when I saw that my Kindle had downloaded my pre-order, and I slacked off all day at work reading it.
I won't get into the whole plot and everything, that's why you're supposed to read the book. But you won't be disappointed. This was the latest in an amazing series, and unfortunately, I'm already very impatient for the next one lol.
If you haven't read the previous books, read them first. You won't be disappointed by them or by this.
The book's action scenes are well written and the author keeps track of multiple character perspectives without issue.
All in all this is an excellent addition to the series and it sets the stage for many more books to come.
Warning: This book contains manly men, brave women, honor, and loads of guns. If that's not your cup of tea then stay clear and let the rest of us have all the fun.
