Well its ok.

So its not Homes best work its a Novella that covers a very small part of one of the back story for an older character in the main storys.

In the main story the MC has an uncle who is known as a war hero and very much running the British Space force at the time of the FIRST BOOK VOID WAR. This novella covers the most important battle that the uncle comands and is why he is so well respected. Its Ok nothing ground braking doesnt add much to the character and doesnt put the rest of series in new light or even build the setting its just a short engagment with quite large stakes but we know he wins so meh.
