As always when I get a free advanced copy of any of Terry Mixon's books I put aside what ever book I'm reading and in minutes I find myself totally immersed in his created world. Loved the characters and the tension as Andrea struggled to be accepted as a recruit and not the enemy. When your face is tattooed as a higher caste in the Singularity it is pretty hard to blend in. She has to prove herself but she can't use all her engineered genetic abilities or she will just vastly outclass her fellow recruits and most of them don't care for her in the first place.
The plot thickens as she is not wished success by other players in the assembly of characters. I spent the whole day just revelling in the story with its twists and turns. Make yourself comfortable and enjoy a great day of reading.
This is the 2nd book of a series, following the career of Andrea Tolliver, but if you are coming to this without having read Spoils of War, you can still enjoy this book. That said, it’s probably going to be more fun on the whole to read in order.
The story starts a bit slower than is usual for a Mixon book – the fireworks don’t really get going until the second half of the book. There are plenty of hints of things to come, but it’s also a loving description of Marine boot camp. Having seen Andrea’s companions progressing through training does make plausible the way they come together to survive against unreasonable odds as the enemy starts to take overt action in the second half of the book. Trust me, there’s plenty of good action waiting there.
Once the shooting starts, it turns into a hard to put down book. The antagonists are all plausible, and smart. No cardboard villains here. Even the easiest to hate of them has internal reasons for her action that make her a patriot, not a villain, in her own eyes. And likely in the eyes of her faction – I expect more trouble from that corner later, as well as from the Singularity. This is the stage-setting piece of what will likely be an epic-length series, and the author has left himself plenty of hooks for future problems. I await the next installment eagerly.
