The truth is out there...
In the aftermath of the Stonemeyer disaster, Special Agent Jackson Fischer is determined to uncover truth behind the failed mission and bring those responsible to justice. But growing pressure to close the case has everyone on edge, and Fischer is desperate for more evidence.
As Corporal Allen Sheridan struggles to face his demons from Stonemeyer, he must also prove himself to his new teammates. Assigned to the Alliance Marine Special Operation Command, Sheridan and the members of Team Valkyrie soon find themselves right in the middle of the biggest clandestine operation in the history of the Alliance.
The search for truth, however, only leads to more questions and with the Alliance on the brink of war, Fischer and Sheridan must race against the clock to find the answers that will put an end to the conspiracy that threatens to tear the Alliance apart.
Echoes of Valor is an action-packed story of bravery, determination and the will to win at all costs. With higher stakes and deeper mysteries, the second book in the Valor Series will keep you turning the pages to the very end.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
I found this a frustrating read, and not just because of the numerous self-published grammar errors and missed words. (Honestly, Grammarly and Microsoft Word between them highlight 99% of this type of mistake for very little cost, and so I am losing tolerance for such self-published sloppiness, though I have not taken a star off because of it.) No, the niggle I had was twofold:
1. The cast of good-guys is supposedly experienced professionals, yet they overlook obvious things they've encountered before, like suicide teeth, with no consequences except to the plot.
2. There were times when even a re-read of the text showed some narrative gap that the surrounding pages suggested was present in the authors mind but for some reason did not make the page. It makes for confusing moments, and a couple of times I wondered if I was reading something patched in from another novel, such is the disconnect to events in Book 1.
With that aside, this is a serviceable military-thriller that makes no attempt to stretch the genre in any dimension. Indeed, take away the aliens and spaceships, and it could quite easily be a special forces novel set in some sketchy Earth locale. Which is part of the problem for me, because I enjoy the imaginative dimension of sci-fi, and Hayes plays things very safe in that regard. So, don't expect anything but the standard technology tropes.
Emotionally and with regard character development, it's much the same. No real depth and superficial introspection. I *thought* Fischer had a family, but he's an absent husband and father, despite his unbalanced work/life being flagged as an issue in Book 1. Here, it's all "get the bad guys and damn everything else", including hist family. Perhaps some angst was intended, but if so, I totally missed it.
Hayes does try to provide a sufficiently large conspiracy to warrant all the mayhem, but even that's starting to fray about the edges because it needs to loom so impossibly large and I am not sure the narrative structure is up to the task. Not that I'll ever know, as I'm not going to purchase Book 3. I hoped Book 2 would be better than it was, but it seems like a hurriedly written novel populated by a cast I struggled to care about, chasing a mystery that is already getting rickety. Not recommended, there are many finer military-thrillers out there in Kindle land.
Unreliable narrators weave a tale of a mission go wrong and Agent Fischer has to weave what he's being told into what he can prove.
If you love thrillers, military scifi, and regular guys taking on the odds, this is the book for you.

There are several typos in this book that an editor should have caught, but stupid me didn't think to mark them to let Josh know so he could fix them.
It is fairly well paced, I have issues with the inability of Mil. Int. to carry out their appointed tasks, having
so many probs across a spectrum of situations but, it is a sci-fiction thriller... Artistic licence!?!
Id est: political/systemic hinderances are not exclusively the purvey of ''real'' democratic military-industrial complexes/polities!
Likeable characters abound. Looking forward to the next ride.
