Summary

The alien forces known as the Lankies are gathering on the solar system's edge, consolidating their conquest of Mars and setting their sights on Earth. The far-off colony of New Svalbard, cut off from the rest of the galaxy by the Lanky blockade, teeters on the verge of starvation and collapse. The forces of the two Earth alliances have won minor skirmishes but are in danger of losing the war. For battle-weary staff sergeant Andrew Grayson and the ragged forces of the North American Commonwealth, the fight for survival is entering a catastrophic new phase.
Forging an uneasy alliance with their Sino-Russian enemies, the NAC launches a hybrid task force on a long shot: a stealth mission to breach the Lanky blockade and reestablish supply lines with Earth. Plunging into combat against a merciless alien species that outguns, outmaneuvers, and outfights them at every turn, Andrew and his fellow troopers could end up cornered on their home turf, with no way out and no hope for reinforcement. And this time the struggle for humanity's future can end only in either victory or annihilation.

Best in series so far.

Really enjoyed this. Possibly the most enjoyable of the series yet. Plenty of turns and twists in the story.

OK but treading water

Any additional comments?

Enjoyable and very well presented. However by halfway through you realise that the overall series plot is not going to progress very much. By the end I was mildly disappointed. No evolution or explanation of the Lankies. How do their ships survive thermonuclear missile hits? If they had taken Mars, why did they leave earth? Good stuff, way better than some of the military SciFi available but please move the storyline on next time Mr Kloos.

Great story! Preformance was well done!

Any additional comments?

Having read the two previous books and the short stories, this book is a strong and worthwhile addition to the universe Marko has created.

Some commentary in the reviews has indicated the story is depressing, leaving the reader without hope. I see this story as full of hope, just not Pollyanna. The likelihood of humans running into a space faring race, that doesn’t want to kick our tail seems vanishingly small, if human history is to be any judge. The themes of powerful bureaucrats looking out for themselves shouldn’t surprise anyone who has read any news in the last twenty years. The themes of poverty and lack of self-reliance in government housing are played out everyday around the world.

The depressing parts of this story are simply the backdrop upon which the author chooses to paint many stories of bravery, self sacrifice and heroism. Without the fall there can be no up from the ashes story.

This is a very good read! I anxiously await the next (final?) installment in this universe.

Riveting

I had forgotten all about this series, I saw it on Audible and realized I had not read book three of the series. I understand book four should be coming out at the end of the year so I made a note on my calendar to look for it.

“Angles of Attack” continues the story of Andrew Grayson, marine staff sergeant. The Lankies, those aliens who are impossible to beat, trapped a coalition of former enemies on a planet with diminishing fuel, ammunition and food. It appears they are being forced to run the gauntlet home to earth. The story has both exciting land and space battles.

Kloos has a good plot and excellent characterizations. The story forces the characters to their limits. The pace is fast with swashbuckling action and suspense. The ending leaves us with a cliff hanger. Luke Daniels narrated the book.
