    I wasn’t sure what I was getting but I would call this a militaryspace opera that hit all the right notes for those of you who are into this genreHuff “knows her stuff” the extent of my poetic gift She knows how the military should sound and how jarheads and grunts talk to each other and complain about their current situation whatever that is This is a story about combat troops “repurposed” for a crit

    I loved this book before I went and started writing books myself There is a crazy thing that happens when you write books though You develop editing brain and you can no longer read without picking up all the little issues that you might change in your own stuff It is a real downer let me tell you I don't enjoy reading as much as I once didA real downer So I went back to this book as I have a few other books I once love

    While reading this I remembered why I don't read much military Sci Fi And that's because I find it boring Yes that's right I find that most military Sci Fi revolves around cardboard cut out characters that take part in wholly forgettable and uninteresting stories This was no exception I only give it 2 stars because it's not bad for the genre But this is a genre that suffers from a lack of talented authors Ther

Initial impression upon first finishing the book A rollicking good read and I enjoyed it a lot than I thought I would considering this is military sci fi that s light on the sci fi and heavy on the militaryAfter a uick rereadMy initial impression still stands This was a surprisingly enjoyable read although that will never not be weird to say about military fiction even in genre Another point in this book s favor is it s the beginning of a new series that looks like it could be really good if the first book is any indication and I m looking forward to diving in furtherTanya Huff is a new author for me one I ve been meaning to read for years now just never had the chance She s favorite among my circle of friends and now that I ve read one of her books I can see whyHer prose is exacting to the point and she doesn t waste space summing up things for you nor does she dwell too long on sentimentality She strikes a balance between the physicality of war and the emotional toll it takes on troops on the ground and between the personal and the political I think it s just right for this kind of story where the balance of deftness and a delicate hand is reuiredThat aside the tone is actually neither heavy handed or maudlin as one might expect from military fiction There s a lot of humor bantering and camaraderie even in the face of peril And all of it feels authentic As a matter of fact this whole book feels authentic if you don t count the space ships and lizard peopleEvery military organization needed heroes tragic heroes if they were the only type availableThe book kicks off by dropping you into the beginning of a new missionThe marines of Sh uo Company have recently returned from a mission in which they suffered a great deal and lost a number of their own They re currently on temporary leave at the start of the book However that doesn t last long as they get called to another mission Not to another battlefield this time but to a meeting of diplomats The company is to escort a group of ambassadors to a new planet Silsvah that the Confederation hegemony is looking to bring into its circleAlong with the order the company also receives a new commanding officer Second Lieutenant Jarrat to replace their recently deceased lieutenant The new guy is good with diplomacy but has zero field experience He s basically custom fit for this job whereas the company being a group of rowdy marines with the exception of their sargents are notWeird to call in battle weary troops to be diplomatic escorts yeah That s what they thought as well But an order is an order and they might as well see the new planet and meet its apex predators the Silsviss while they re at itThe catch is of course there s a catch the new planet is inhabited by a less advanced rather primitive race of warmongering lizard people who are undecided about the Confederation and aren t easily impressed by its fancy techs These people reuire a show of might before they agree to anything the Confederation has plannedWhat initially starts as an assignment to babysit a bunch of diplomats for a few weeks on a foreign planet turns into a siege and a series of skirmishes in the middle of a desert swamp in which the company is outnumbered by hundreds of Silsviss It s a grueling fight but in the end tech wins out even at the expense of the people using itWe find it strange the ambassador murmured almost to herself how a species can be able to make such a sacrifice one moment and can kill another sentient being the next This mix of caring and violence is most confusing it must be a factor of bisymmetrical speciesIt was by no means a truism that insight into a species could be gained by wholesale slaughter but Torin was willing to bet that right at this particular point in time no one in the Confederation knew the Silsviss as well as she didIn the midst of all this is Staff Sargent Torin Kerr the backbone of the company main POV character and someone who grew on me She s got the weight of the whole universe on her and I couldn t help but feel for her and the burden she lugs around She s got a platoon to keep in line a young officer to back up who looks to her for confirmation and of course diplomats to keep aliveIt s all right Jarrat said after a long moment I understand where it s coming fromIt had come from places he s never been from battles he s never fought Torin turned ready to challenge his assumptions but his profile carved out of the morning too tight too unmoving to be flesh convinced her to hold her tongue He couldn t understand it all not at his age not his first time out but unfortunately he was on his wayAll good stuff but I have just one uibble I always imagined the future of warfare to have drones and fewer or no boots on the ground The battle scene described in this book while very well portrayed is not unlike any battlefield from the last century which is a little off putting for me simply because if humanity ever manages space travel and forms coalitions with alien lifeforms would face to face combat still be a necessity Wouldn t there be a efficient way to eliminate a threat on a large scale Cross posted at
