The author spends too much time explaining, too little time just showing. He swaps character views in so short a time, my head is spinning, trying to keep up. He either has never been in the military, or didn't pay attention while he was in, and makes too many assumptions on certain types of military behavior he doesn't actually understand.
I'm sorry, but I was never able to suspend my disbelief long enough to enjoy the story. Everything felt like a caricature of other caricatures.
The author has some neat concepts he wants to portray and I wish him luck in developing better flow with future stories, but he needs to either spend some time with people who have lived military lives to get a better feel for it, or spend some more time reading novels by people who do military SciFi or fantasy well (John Ringo, David Weber, etc.), or use it as a background item without portraying it outright (like Mark Henwick).
Keeping to one character view per scene would help a LOT. This novel had the feel of the early Dragonlance novels, where the reader felt like he was moving from player to player in a tabletop roleplaying game. This author does not have the D&D franchise connection to support his sales while he develops his style and cannot afford to make the same mistakes.
Mr. Savage, keep plugging away! I'd really like to come back to a re-write of this novel in a couple years and enjoy the hell out of it.
