This book is a semi-standalone, starting at the same point in time as the first book of the series, but (excepting the prologue) staying on earth with events there.
Our heroine - wracked with survivor's guilt from losing the rest of her elite recon team - is tasked to operate alone, and with little to no support, as a bodyguard for the crown prince and emperor - to - be. Forces about them conspire to use the prince as a puppet to foster their own grabs for power, and earth continues to sink further into turmoil as it reaches it's final implosion. Her project, short of keeping him alive, is to maybe get him to grow up to be something other than a spoiled brat and puppet.
The book is not kind to bread and circuses, nor the dependencies that creates.
Like much of the rest of the series, the beginning of each chapter is a paragraph or two on the fall of earth, told post-mortem, written by the history professor sent off earth in the first book. This bit of "tell - don't show" is restrained, and like an establishing shot in a movie or TV show, helps firmly place the following chapter with a minimum of words in the proper time and locale.
The style is straightforward, but still effectively paints the environment around the characters, and who they are.
I gave this book 5 stars because his writing style has improved. He could still make do with a good editor.
If you like military Sci-Fi with some politics thrown in you should like this series of books.
This series reflects modern day America. I'm sure he has offended people on both sides of the political spectrum. He does not offend me even though I disagree with some of his views. There are people who through no fault of their own will never be able to work. Not all rich people are evil.
I apologize for not having more to say. I don't care for doing book reviews and I try to avoid inserting spoilers. I dislike those reviews that are so detailed that the entire storyline is revealed. I like a few surprises when I read a book.
