I got hooked on this series of books written by Evan Curie. It is great Science Fiction and his writing style and storyline seen to be a combination like Starship Troopers and the Halo’s Master Chief. The main difference is that his primary character is a super warrior named Sargent Sorillia and she is truly something else. Modified with the latest technology and armor that mankind has developed she is a unmatched soldier that is an unstoppable force. Even the toughest warriors of the Alliance find that fighting her is a real problem.
I really liked this book and the storyline is full of top notch action and adventure. For me these books have been on par with the best books written on the Halo series. I love military Sci-Fi and this is a great series. I have already purchased the next two books in the series.
This installment was my most favorite yet. The creative action began on the very first page and didn't stop until the very last. Sorilla is the most fiercely battle-skilled heroine I've ever had the pleasure of reading about.
I was continually excited and awed by the tactics displayed during battle, be it planet-side or in the vacuum of space. I was taken on a high-adventure ride that just kept going and going; I loved this book so much I could not put it down. Not one part of the story was cheesy but instead, takes you back to basics of motherfrakking ass-kicking 101.
My respect for this series just exploded a notch up. Just when I thought I've read it all, this author delivered a splendid SciFi-action novel that flowed well from one death defying mission to the next.
I highly recommend this book to fellow SF readers and I can't for the next book The Valhalla Call due out in 2013; which will be a bitter sweet release, since it's the last book in the series.
To fellow dark urban fantasy readers who are looking for a good space opera but do not want to end up with a space romance, I also recommend this series to you.
I also recommend:
Citizen X (AGU: Border Patrol, Book 1)
A Galaxy Unknown
Mech 1: The Parent (Imperium Series)
Peacekeeper: A Major Ariane Kedros Novel
Space Trippers Book 1: Trippin'
Conversely, there was some odd editing to these books that actually left entire words out of sentences. For instance, this is a line from book 6:
"They'd apparently able to gain ground after the Poland had thinned the defenders deeper inside the city,..."
Another weird edit was using the wrong preposition: "..as she climbed her Titan back to its feet and disgustedly tossed away the ruined pulse cannon she'd be using."
You'll find this in all the books and it can be a bit annoying but, for me, not sufficient to detract a star. Only to bemoan the degradation of the English language in the hands of millennials and social media.
There was a lot of math/physics, as well, but not so overwhelming or key to the plot that you need to either understand it or spend too much time trying to figure it out. For me, could be true I don't know, I don't need it to be but it sure would be cool if it is.
