Summary

The time has come to take the fight to the Lankies.
Mars has been under Lanky control for more than a year. Since then, the depleted forces of Earth's alliances have rebuilt their fleets, staffing old warships with freshly trained troops. Torn between the need to beat the Lankies to the punch and taking enough time to put together an effective fighting force, command has decided to strike now.
Once again, seasoned veterans Andrew and Halley find themselves in charge of green troops and at the sharp tip of the spear as the combined military might of Earth goes up against the Lankies. But if there's one constant in war, it's that no battle plan survives first contact with the enemy...and the Lankies want to hold on to Mars as badly as humanity wants to reclaim it.

Great continuation of the series!

One of my favorite science fiction/space opera series.A well written first person prospective that is refreshingly different to most of the military sci-fi books out there. Also Luke Daniels is on my list of favorite narrators. If anyone else read this series I would be disappointed. Overall, I am left wanting more and wished the next book was already out!

1st half of book mostly rehash

The beginning of the book started fine what with a remnant of a previously thought destroyed Lanky settlement resurfacing in Greenland and Andrew taking part in destroying it and discovering an unknown aspect about the Lanky that will complicate further encounters. Then, for the rest of the first half of the story, both Andrew and Halley ended up visiting his Mom and the Chief and then Halley's parents which did nothing the move the story along. Then the rest of the time was spent with them rehashing previous encounters and ruminating on all sorts of stuff that, again, did absolutely nothing to move the story along.

It picked up in the 2nd half of the book where the fight to take back Mars from the Lankies took place and there were interesting encountered, if not predictable. The last part of the story was overly melodramatic and the ending was predictable.

Luke Daniels performance was good but was hindered with a sup-par story. It's unclear whether there will be another book to the series but I don't plan to follow the series if so.
