Like all the other books in this series it was fun and enjoyable. With little references to other sci-fi authors. For example the character Jelal appears to be named after a character from starship troopers.
Although I found the book enjoyable the writing style has something to be desired and a lot of the main characters are somewhat two dimensional. The author reuses phrases a lot and often repeats things. The repatriation is ok at the start of the book as it allows the book to be read by someone without them having read the previous book as it give a hasty introduction to the characters but it can become annoying further into the story.
So if you are looking for a deep work of fiction then this is not the book for you. But if you are after a fun sci-fi military romp then I would definitely recommend it.
I have enjoyed this series since book one, and here we are already at book twelve. I think is the best series by Nuttall; he has three or four series ongoing.
The war between the Commonwealth and Wolfbane has been going on longer than either side had anticipated. Both side are having equipment and personnel problems. Admiral Singh is now the governor as well as military leader of Wolfbane.
Colonel Stalker, Commander of the Commonwealth’s military, tells his officers the Commonwealth will fall in the next two years due to lack of equipment, combat spaceships and the falling apart of the Commonwealth’s worlds. He has designed a desperate battle plan in a win or lose situation. He plans a land battle on the industrialized world of Corinthian. Admiral Singh was once in Command of Corinthian so Stalker anticipates she will take risks to retake Corinthian. Stalker will command this battle himself, and, my favorite character, General Yannie will command Division One.
The book is well written. Nuttall does an excellent job in writing battle scenes. His description brings the battle to life including all the carnage of battles. The pace is fairly fast and the action is non-stop. Nuttall continues to develop the key characters. Nuttall’s battle tactics and strategies left something to be desired. Oh well, I am an armchair strategist.
Jeffrey Kafer does an excellent job in narrating the series. I am pleased that the same narrator has done the entire series.

The book was well rounded and tie seamlessly into the previous story lines without too much repetitiveness. His character development continues with a greater understanding of several surrounding individuals that was reminiscent of his earlier books.
The best of the last four. Enjoy
