The Tegri want to help Taylor but can't do it overtly or no one will believe Taylor is fighting for the good of humanity. So they tell Taylor why the humans must win and become free agents able to determine their own free will. That information only reinforces Taylor's resolve, but for some strange reason he won't confide in any of his men. The don't understand why he is so driven to win this battle and proceed to Earth.
I think Gen Taylor is an idiot for withholding this info. I guess he thinks he's the only one capable of understanding what's at stake yet his men are dying for him and he won't come clean as to why. they have just as much right to know as Taylor because it's their lives on the line. His men aren't stupid, they can understand the Tegri's message just as well as he. He's causing a lot of internal problems which just aren't necessary.
This is a good book and an excellent story that I want to continue reading but the author needs to lighten up on Taylor. He's just a soldier that happens to be enhanced and visited by the Tegri but he's still just human. Quit trying to make him into some kind of superman/super genius soldier, cause he's not!
Jake is faced with a war to win back the human race and free it from an oppressive government that has used mankind to fight a needless war against an alien race. He leads his battle hardened super soldiers against misinformed human armies to get to Earth to destroy the present political leadership. The aliens have shown him the truth and Jake feels that mankind deserves a chance of having free choice. His goal is to free billions of humans from the lies and tyranny of corrupt politicians who want to stay in power.
I like the story and the battle scenarios and I liked the premise of the storyline. There was just to much remorse expressed by Jake for the wars and battles and for me it focused too much of the story on that topic. It is still worth getting and reading as I liked the book and I will get the next release in the series.
Frankly, if it had been from another author I would not have been interested in continuing the series at all. In many places the plotline did that, it plotted. This reviewer really saw no strong strategic or tactical reason to fight as hard as the troops under General Jake Taylor had to for a prize that was at best only a stepping stone? He never intended to establish a permeant base on the planet of Juno. It seems to this armchair general that a lightning move through enemy territory would be better, especially since you are low on supplies, men and ammo.
The characters just do not seem to grow in this book. The bad guys are just evil, and have no sign of good. Heck, even Hitler petted his dog.
Yes, I will read the next book in the series. I hope it gets up to the standards of the Crimson Worlds quickly. If it does not I will take Jay off my lst of authors Iwill read every book that he writes.
War is not pretty and with enhanced weapons...
Very good job.

good guys always win, so the tension is missing.
