From the Author
Although I'm 'not sure' I will do additional paperbacks, since I've done this one I suspect I will get to the first 7 after the new covers come out this summer.
Check out more info on FB or the Amazon Forums to ask questions!
Thank you so much,
Michael --This text refers to the paperback edition.

I am actually looking forward to this. The Queen Bitch in space with a whole universe of baddie’s (censored by Amazon)s to kick. Scary thought indeed. However, we’re not really their just yet. Luckily the author is not rushing things so there are still plenty of vampire (and werewolf) business going on back on Earth.
In one sense you could say that the book is more of the same. More of the Queen Bitch, more of the fun bantering between all the members of the team and of course more of the (censored by Amazon) kicking.
However, at the same time the story moves forward, the characters evolve, new (censored by Amazon)hats pop up for a round of educational spanking (some of them for a life long lesson…all five minutes of it), new team members are introduced and most importantly Bethany’s master plan progresses.
I do not think that I have read any book series before that managed to keep the core values and the same formula for so long and still keep me interested. The author makes the story and characters evolve in a way that it is new and old at the same time keeping the good parts that make the series what it is while adding new situations and new problems to solve, either by engineering or good old violence.
In this particular part of the story the author throws in a vampire bitch wannabee that needs to be dealt with and a few minor problems such as how to put a base on the moon. You know, just the usual stuff in a days work for a Queen Bitch. The latter little issue turns out to finally put the media spotlights on TQB industries which of course opens a new can of worms (translation: lots of new story opportunities for future books) for Bethany.
So, as usual, a really good and fun to read book.
I think her attitude of take no prisoners is the trait I find most appealing when it comes to her loyalty and love for her people.
This a great book and an even better series. I also enjoy the fact that a new one comes out about every month. I get my Kurtherian fix just about the time I am about to go into withdrawal.
I never used to check my email, because it was mostly spam but now I check every day to see if Michael's new release has come out. His auto notice is really appreciated.
My wish list is clone Michael Anderle so he can write more and still have a life.
But I guess the novelty wore off, I just got sick of the same old same old formula that everybody is invincible, everybody is super intelligent. In fact all of the characters seem to come from the same mold. They all react the same way to just about every stimuli. Some minor variations of course but not enough so you don't end up going "so who is this character again?"
And by the way the central theme of "the ends justify the means" sounds a little ridiculous when the so called mission to save earth from alien domination is achieved by the central character becoming the Queen of everything. And it seems a dictatorship is OK if its run by the good guys - including killing everybody we don't like. Oh I forgot - history is written by the winners isn't it.
Plus the constant jumping of viewpoint started to get a little confusing especially since the characters are not that well developed.
The only reason I didn't give this one star (or even no star) is because I liked the previous books.
back to the review - I found the 1st book for free on Kindle on Sunday, finished it in just a couple hours (I read very fast) and immediately bought the next 10 books. It's Weds morning and I'm starting on book 8 so I came back to get the rest of the series before I get stuck somewhere with no internet connection and I'm out of books to read :) Keep up the good work Michael - this series is on my "keep to read again" list and you're my newest favorite author (& I copy/pasted this review to all the books I've read so far) thanks for the wild ride - Karen

By now the character list is long and it's becoming increasingly obvious that this is the story of white people saving the world which is surely problematic in this modern age. There is one token black American, prized for his strength, respect and loyalty to the white leader of the group (no one can miss the trope). There is one token Asian American whose ethnicity is limited to an introductory comment on his parents and never mentioned again because his main feature is being quiet and biddable (another trope).
Given that most of the characters in the book are sourced from the US armed forces and US tech and science communities. You couldn't have such a vanilla group of people given those source groups.
And in this book the villain is a Japanese woman with Chinese minions. Seriously? The two countries have a long history of conflict yet somehow this is supposed to work as a theme?
Fantastic books thanks
