This is a scify/alternate history retelling of our recent history on a new planet. There are two points that makes this book stand out.
1. Th..Show More »e author obviously knows a lot about military leadership and organizing troops. His descriptions of this is very interesting and engaging.
2. The author is probably very right wing and seems incapable of understanding liberal thinking. Whenever he tries to introduce a liberal bad guy it seems more like a straw man, to take pot shots at, instead of a real person.
All in all I think it is a rather well written book, but some people will just want to trow it out the window whenever they start talking politics.
I have really enjoyed this series so far, it has been a bit repetitive at times, on things like back ground, technical explanations and history of cha..Show More »racters, which is understandable given the nature of any series. But book 6 seems to be at least 50% cut and paste, word for word extracts, from other books in the series. There are even repetitions later in the book of things and incidents spoke of earlier in the book. It is so padded with waffle and pointless detail that I am really beginning to wonder if the writer running out of steam and imagination or is just being paid for a job lot regardless of quality ? Does not bode well for future books.
