"A fast paced and action packed story that actually had me wanting to read more after finishing the novel. Also, his characters aren’t just remakes of past hero templates. Katja and the rest of the Rapier crew are become real and believable through Coles writing and, as a reader, I was quickly drawn into her journey from novice to hero." - Atomic Moo

"Talk about hitting the ground running. Coles doesn’t pull any punches. There’s no glamorization of war or battle – what this story provides is a clear and intelligent depiction of human beings and all the coping mechanisms that they develop to deal with the trauma and stress that can result from war. The fast-moving pace of the story is terrific and makes it an absolute pleasure to read." -Impedimenta

"The writing itself caught my interest and kept my eyes solidly on each page from start to finish. If you are a fan of solid military themed science fiction, this one is a great read" - Science Fiction.com

The one bright note - Cole does create an interesting new take on space warfare with the idea of the Brane - layers of space/time/gravity. He uses this in a manner reminiscent of submarine warfare.
I find it mildly amusing to ponder who the author is modeling these characters after.
I have a bit of an issue with the hail Mary technological breakthrough ending to the book, but what is science fiction if you can't occasionally go with the long odds. I would have liked a little more detail in parts, sometimes the author jumps over events I would rather were described in more detail.
All in all, a pretty darn good book, looking forward to others from this author.
Action, action, action..
Hard to fault anything in this one. I'm sure I could if I tried, but I'm not going to bother. I'd rather just enjoy the afterglow.
I would pre-order the next today.
