Summary

Bloodied yet defiant. Legion survivors emerge from the alien onslaught. The fight back starts here...

Lance Scipio and the defenders of Fortress Beta City are cut-off and betrayed. They've proven they can survive, but to liberate an entire continent is a far greater challenge. Costly mistakes will be made, and to survive Lance must rely upon the most dangerous soldiers in the Sleeping Legion - impossible warriors who should not exist.

But whose side are they really on?

Fans of modern military science fiction will relish this fast-paced and realistic series, set in the worlds of the Human Legion.

what happened? TGIF! HAS NEW MEANING

story reverted just when it was getting better in the last book. Geez! Smart leader turns into impulsive overemotional bird brain? Not once but 2 or 3 times? And doesn't get demoted, just his bosses keep getting knocked off. And his friends. No biggie.
plot was disjointed, characters out of character, &/or too cookie cutter, stereotypical, predictable with no rhyme or reason.
Real let down just when Id finally gotten my hopes up!
Did his cat write some of this for him? Arrrghhh!
TGIF! (Thank Goodness It's Free!)
TGIF will never have the same meaning again. It will forever be adopted into the lexicon of book reviews!!

Yet Another Great Book By JR

If you’ve read the first two I can guarantee you’re going to enjoy this one. There’s quite a few more Characters in this one as the story expands.

Words good. Story bad.

I rarely write negative reviews but this is an odd one. The quality of the writing, the structure of sentences is great. Good variety of language, great tempo and nicely descriptive prose. The writing is very good. This is a story should enjoy.

However, what happened to the credibility of the characters? The story barely makes sense and is very difficult to follow. The characters are unrealistic and just not credible. Everyone yells non-sensibly at everyone else. The story had great potential but the main characters actions make no sense nor do the reactions of the other characters.

If you focus on the story about the action of advanced marines you can enjoy it. If you try to make any sense of the actual story and the characters and why they are acting they way they are, you will likely be disappointed.

Action, for action sake

The Sleeping Legion is a full speed ahead battle. From the first book in the series to the last there is no let up in the action. Players come and go, targets change - get added and then subtracted after bloody conflict.
