Fields of Fire

The time has come to take the fight to the LankiesMars has been under Lanky control for 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 This is the fifth book in Kloos Frontlines series If you haven t read the others this isn t the place to startFrontlines imagines an Earth that has had contact with another race and it hasn t gone well The Lankies have discovered that humans have created nice planets that only need a little tweakingthat tweaking consisting mostly of raising the carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and eliminating the humans These creatures are formidable standing several meters high and weighing much than your average semi trailer They also are uite impervious to being shot with conventional weaponsThe Lankies have taken over many of humans colonies in remote solar systems and are now knocking on Earth s door having conuered our people on Mars So far our heroes have kept them for establishing any significant presence on Earth but they keep on trying When I say our heroes I am of course referencing Andrew and Halley He of the space infantry and she a combat pilot The passion that was part of their sharing basic training has lasted through years of combat multiple injuries for each of them and finally marriage She was an officer before he and they risked being court martialed for their fraternization He came from the Boston barrios and she was an uptown girl All of that is reprised early in this story as the Lankies show their sly hand at attacking EarthWithout revealing any details this book charts Earth s determination to take to the Lankies who have made Mars their base of operations This book has all the elements that we have come to expect in Kloos storytelling Straight ahead narration by Andrew plenty of military action and tactics amazing details of military hardware and surprising plot twists Example Just for the record that s some crazy ass shit But good luck We just got here by letting them Earth s military leaders shoot us out of missile tubes I reply And we re fighting five hundred ton creatures with hand weapons There s no part of this that s sane I also like the tension that Kloos notes inside Andrew as he tries to reconcile his former role as a part of the police force defending the well off people who don t deign to acknowledge any of their help Guns are what keep your little paradise from getting overrun by half a million pissed off welfare ratsI just look around in the dining room and imagine what a bunch of soy fed hardened PRC gang members would do to this air conditioned place and its immaculate floors inhabited by people who look down on the soldiers and cops that keep this place safe from the unwashed masses Is this what we fought for all these years So these sueaky clean stuck up suburbanites can keep thinking of us as something necessary but embarrassing like the ugly guard dog you keep in the basement when visitors stop by This is a fine addition to Frontlines that showcases many of Kloos talents 45 stars with the deduction coming not because Kloos isn t Tolstoy because it is a bridge plot than one that has a real conclusion
