    I bought it because it was on sale thereviews looked decent if not many so far solid writing with clear historic precedent in the Boxer Rebellion always a pleasure when an author picks an unusual setting.Also the author throws in a number of famous quotes which can be interesting to look for.

    violence, hatred and goreI agree with the guy who noted that Carella s political preaching and vicious attacks on anyone who diverges from his views got very old very fast Clearly his solution to political diversity is round up all them commie liberals and put them in the work camps or better yet, just beat them to death and save the expense of feeding them And he wouldn t shut up about it long enough for me to just read the story, either So noCarella books for me, purely for that rea violence, hatred and goreI agree with the guy who noted that Carella s political preaching and vicious attacks on anyone who diverges from his views got very old very fast Clearly his solution to political diversity is round up all them commie liberals and put them in the work camps or better yet, just beat them to death and save the expense of feeding them And he wouldn t shut up about it long enough for me to just read the story, either So noCarella books for me, purely for that reason He s an okay writer, though too fond of cardboard characters and us vs them attitudes I was hoping the LDS missionaries would offer some leaven to the grab your gun and blast the Eetee s head off theme, but not really, though the one missionary left behind at the end of the book might help the next books develop into somethingthan shoot em ups I just don t want to be smothered in anyof this spewed bile, so won t be reading further

    Raw, crude, totally believable to anyone who served in the military The story line was engaging and interesting My biggest complaint, and the reason for only two stars, was the lack of editing the repeated words, the wrong word for the context, and the almost unreadable sentences I finally gave up trying to decipher Example describing non stop use of a machine was twenty for seven instead of twenty four seven Yes, any competent proofreader, or beta reader, would have caught that type o Raw, crude, totally believable to anyone who served in the military The story line was engaging and interesting My biggest complaint, and the reason for only two stars, was the lack of editing the repeated words, the wrong word for the context, and the almost unreadable sentences I finally gave up trying to decipher Example describing non stop use of a machine was twenty for seven instead of twenty four seven Yes, any competent proofreader, or beta reader, would have caught that type of mistake Another was the repetition of words It seemed the author couldn t decide on the exact sentence structure he wanted to use, and instead of cleaning it up after making his decision, left them both The military style of language in the field language, not the bureaucratic mumble speak of the offices got a bit wearing, but I know that s how they talk in today s military and don t expect it would change in the future With a lot of proofreading and editing this would have rated 5 stars, but because it felt like it went through the authors spellchecker once, and totally skipped the eyes of a beta reader or two, before publishing, I had to give it only two stars If the lack of proofreading and editing won t bother you, you will enjoy this realistic, action packed tale

    An intense, action packed military sci book novel with plenty of dead aliens My only real complaint is the number of dead aliens was, at times, simply too large and massive to be totally believable I don t see how these few Marines weren t eventually totally overwhelmed and slaughtered, but then, hey, there couldn t be a series now, could there Definitely recommended for those who like this genre.
