First Michael Anderle is the mind that created The Kurthurian Gambit universe. He took A vampire story and combined it with aliens and sci fi to create a world where vampires and weres are real thanks to the meddling of an advanced race of warring aliens a thousand years in the past. If you are a vampire fan or a space opera fan do yourself a favor and check out Death Becomes Her to see where it all started.
Next you have Craig Martelle who wrote the ten books that are The Terry Henry Walton Cronicles. A Marine and general purpose righter of wrongs and all around badass who lives by a code that requires him to protect the weak and end the evil with extreme prejudice. Married to a werewolf and leading a military force that he started made up of humans (enhanced and unenhanced), weres, and a vampire or three. His mission is to protect mankind and make the earth a better place until the return of the Queen Bitch,(see Death Becomes Her and the subsequent twenty odd books from Michael) returns.
Then we have Justin Sloan who took a European vampire who was raised and trained by a conquest minded ancient vamp and made her into a warrior for justice with a little help from The Archangel, Michael Natch the first vampire. (Again see Michael Anderles Death Becomes Her)
Gets confusing, right? Well rest assured these are some of the hottest writers going now and you are in for a wild ride if you choose to climb aboard.
Now for this book. These three authors have brought their separate but related storylines together to launch a new series where there characters take on the role of dispatching justice across the stars. All of the main players from their previous works come together to chronicle their transition from a post apocalyptic Earth to the deep dark of space. Starting with the arrival of Anderle’s Bethany Ann back to Earth, Martelle’s Terry Henry Walton and Sloan’s Valarie join the intel side of the Etheric Federation as the ass kickers and name takers for the Bad Company. Imagine exposing a proven bunch of warriors, already tested by the fire for over one hundred years, to weapons and abilities that are far beyond anything they have ever seen or dreamed of. That is what happens in this book and they take to it like Marines to a beach head.
No matter what you like, sci-fi, vampires, or weres there is something for everyone here with characters that you will love and writers who are capable of making you feel like you are right there in the thick of it with them.
This sets the stage for what I expect to be some of the best supernatural sci-fi stories ever written. The only downside I have found is these guys turn out several books a month and you will lose sleep reading them all. Oh well sleep is overrated anyway.
Craig, Michael, Justin, and all of the rest of you wonderful storytellers... KEEP ROCKIN' IT!!!!
Perhaps it's because I read the first 32 books of Michael Anderlee over a year ago (and have been frustrated at how long he's taking to complete the Kurtherian Endgame series) and have forgotten some of the details of the characters enough that these didn't work for me. And there seemed to be too many too early on in the story for me and I was a bit overwhelmed.
Clearly, this author tried very hard to imitate the snark and swearing of Michael Anderlee's characters, but they were just not quite as smooth as his.
Not a bad book but I'm not as tempted to start another long journey with these folks.
I love the way the K-verse equalizes the genders, while continuing to acknowledge the cultural struggle to reach a place where all individuals are recognized for what they can contribute.
Waaaay back in the early 'verse, TH coined the term "assholious" - a term I will never forget, and never stop using!! :-)
TH has long been one of my favorite characters, even tho The Chronicles seemed to stutter near the end. Now, I see that it was necessary to set up the next stage. Kudos to Craig Martelle for pulling off the very difficult transition!

This has all the great bits of action, excitement and humour that fans have come to expect from these authors. I could have done with more detail about happenings and interactions, plus the thinking behind events in the first quarter of the story but truthfully that would have been difficult as the other books covering this time haven't been written yet.
The previous stories written by these authors in the KGU don't actually have to read before jumping into this one but if you haven't then you will probably find that you want to read the others just to have a complete background. Personally I enjoyed it more because I already knew and liked these characters and it's always nice to find out What Happens Next when you've made that connection.
I look forward to seeing where all these new series are headed.
I have found the timeline and am better able to read the books in series without getting too discombobulated. Reading a book every 2 days now.
Now back to finish off the last(so far) Bad Company and then I will hop on over to the Oriceran books.
You authors keep cranking this fun, entertaining and awesome prose.
