Two biggest reasons I dropped the series:
1. Despite a wide range of specialty combat units, and the power needed to field them, he deploys the basics he started with to his detriment over several encounters. If he had focused his efforts he would have had much better results; replace the Squirrels with Sensor drones that outperform as Sentries, Yellow Birds for Recon he got right, Scaly Wolves as a Quick Reaction force and Patrols, Pumas as force multipliers and ambush units, Scaled Bears and Quizzards as his Heavies and Cavalry, respectively.
2. The encounter with the company "Fixers" that follow Brint into Milton's territory was just... pathetic. While I wholeheartedly agree with Milton's "kill the Healer first", he failed even at that. Given his resources, and the groups "Tank" splitting from the party, it should have been ridiculously easy to kill both "Casters". Instead he fails the Ambush and gives the Tank time to return and loses his Heavies in the process. Milton should have used the Bears to keep the Tank occupied, while using his Quizzards and Scaled Wolves overwhelm and kill the Casters. Then finished the Tank as needed.
I can't get behind a series whose MC is touted as pretty damn good at something, but in actual story can't hack it. These are just the most glaring examples in the 15% of the compendium I read, but more than enough to lose my interest.
The bonus story at the end was a great treat for fans of his other series, but still written in a way that is easy to understand and enjoy even if you have not read anything else by him.
Minus 1 star for repeated and incorrect use of "decimated". It means to reduce by 1/10th, no matter how many times people use it incorrectly.
