    Solid opening on two counts The beginning of the novel was pretty strong with the whole what are we going to do after being in a PoW vibe going on, full of space opera MilSF goodness between two human populations.The other solid opening was for the expectation of a full series.Unfortunately, the actual novel does not feel all that much like a set piece It might be fine and rather perfect as long as you re reading it along with a full set of novels to come, but since the wait time will be som Solid opening on two counts The beginning of the novel was pretty strong with the whole what are we going to do after being in a PoW vibe going on, full of space opera MilSF goodness between two human populations.The other solid opening was for the expectation of a full series.Unfortunately, the actual novel does not feel all that much like a set piece It might be fine and rather perfect as long as you re reading it along with a full set of novels to come, but since the wait time will be somewhat long, I have the distinct feeling like I ll have to re read this one just to pick up on the other various character s viewpoints and the details leading up to the hanging plot threads One or two is no big deal, but this opener promises a bitcomplexity.Not bad, mind you, and great for MilSF space opera fans, but it does come with that caveat

Idina is a soldier for the winning team alliance She has a lot of anger towards anyone Gretia and represents how most alliance probably feels post wars She also is about to get the first glimpse that the peace they shoved down everyone s throats isn t sitting well and there are some ready to fight back Her PoV captures most of what is happening on the ground.Dunstan is another alliance soldier set on post to guard the Gretian fleet confiscated by the alliance until it can be divided up He just happens to be on rotation when the shit hits the fan and it becomes clear that maybe not everyone is taking the treaty well and someone is looking to wreak a little havoc His PoV covers most of what is happening in space.Last, but not least is Solvieg She was seventeen when the war ended and they took her father s company from him It did help in the war effort with its tech Since then, she has been trained to take over the reigns of the company and now, she is ready There are a lot of people watching her, and her father sees her as his in back into the family company through her She is about to find that everything she knows is probably wrong and she isn t as safe as she assumedHer mother had approved whenever she showed courtesy to the AI in their house She figured that if the Mnemosyne ever became fully sentient and staged a rebellion against biological life forms, it would remember who had treated it with respectThere are a lot of little confrontations and connections in this Aden does carry most of the story as we learn about the aftermath of the war and how Gretians are viewed now I felt the most connected to him and his journey It isn t until almost the end of this that the action really gets going after some smaller altercations I was really into everything happening, trying to figure out who is behind all the new attacks and then it ended There is a little bit of a cliff hanger happening and I m completely ready for Ballistic next year, continuing the Palladium War series This was my first book by Marko Kloos, but it definitely won t be my last, as I enjoyed the story he brought to life and the world building in the book Narration Luke Daniels is a favorite narrator of mine and was one of the main reasons I requested this book As always, his performance is fantastic and he brings all of the characters to life in my head.Listen to a clip

starting Aftershocks However, my worries were allayed as soon as I began reading the first chapter and was introduced to Aden, a former soldier who fought on the side that lost and who now finds himself held in a prison of war camp Pulled into this scenario straight away, I learnedabout this world as the story progressed it has been five years since the brutal inter planetary war ended with a peace treaty, beating back the once proud Gretians who had instigated the conflict The system has been rebuilding itself ever since, though there is still a lot of bad blood and animosity among the different peoples Many lives had been impacted by the war, and there are some survivors who will never forgive the Gretians for what they did.Idina is one such person She s a Palladian with a grudge, now part of the occupying force on Gretia making sure history won t repeat itself For the past five years, patrols with her platoon have been quiet and uneventful, until one day they are ambushed by an unknown enemy Idina watched seven of her squad mates die, and this was just one ofdeadly attacks to come In another part of the system, Lieutenant Commander Dunstan Park of the Rhodian Navy is in space guarding the seized Gretian fleet when suddenly, all the inoperative ships are destroyed in a series of explosions, billions of tons of firepower wiped out in an instant It appears that the peace is not as stable as believed And now, Aden receives the news from his prison overseer that his captivity is about to come to an end Thousands of Gretian PoWs like himself are about to be released back into society, allowed to return to their homes But Aden isn t sure how well he ll integrate back into the real world After so many years, a lot has changed On Gretia, their once proud military has been neutralized along with sanctions placed on their economy Solvieg is a young executive who was just a child during the war, and after the fighting was over her father had the company he founded taken away from him Now due to a loophole she can reclaim it back for her family, but with the current tensions in the political climate, she finds being in the public eye might not be the best idea.Normally, I would have trouble reading an afterwar book After all, it s hard not to wish you were reading about the actual war instead of the aftermath, when all the fighting is done and all you re left with is the tedious cleanup But not so when it comes to Aftershocks Marko Kloos looks at the question of what now through the eyes of four very different but equally engaging characters, each of them providing a unique and interesting perspective Military SF is a tough genre for me to begin with, but I was eased into the narrative with Kloos smooth writing style and his ability to make you care about the people you are reading about.On the topic of characters, Aden was by far my favorite Defeated but not broken, he offers a fascinating look into the mind of an ex soldier who now must come to terms with the atrocities committed by the Gretians and make a new life for himself in a world that despises his people But you might be happy to know his storyline is not as bleak as it sounds A natural problem solver, Aden uses creative ways to get himself out of tight spots, taking readers on one adventure after another My second favorite character was Idina, who isn t shy about making her opinions on Gretians known That said though, she s no one trick pony with a single feature that makes her special Kloos characters are multi layered and complex individuals who evolve with the story, as Idina illustrates Even the other characters who might not have stood out as much, like Dunstan and Solvieg, have important roles to play, giving us a glimpse into other areas of the system as well as the culture and challenges in the post war climate.And that, in essence, is why Aftershocks worked so well for me I loved Kloos world building and how deeply everything felt connected Our characters don t live in a vacuum they exist in a complex network of social and political interactions, with the environment affecting their actions and decisions This to me is what good military SF is all about, not just long winded descriptions of high tech weaponry and war strategies Yes, this book had its share of action and violence, but it was also balanced with incredible story development and character building The setting gave me a sense of a living, breathing universe, one full of feeling and meaning All of it made me want to know .Unfortunately though, Aftershocks closes rather abruptly, leaving us with a to be continued ending and lots of unanswered questions If you don t like being teased like that, I would highly recommend waiting until the series is completed before reading this book Still, while I won t deny being slightly frustrated with the sudden cliffhanger, I thought it was worth it for the experience This novel was a solid start to what promises to be a fantastic series, and I can t wait for the sequel
