capable Storyteller,strong military background
no bullshit or sex know ,things that give military space opera bad name
made some strong choices with the story ,respect but fucking depressing
his weak point is fleet action ,which is why i read the genre but somehow i wasn't bored

overall,what military space opera should be like

Posso dizer que foi a saga "Starfist" (escrita pelo David Sherman e pelo Dan Cragg) que me fez começar a gostar realmente de sci-fi militar. Infelizmente essa saga acabou (por decisão da editora) mas fiquei todo entusiasmado quando vi que um dos autores estava a escrever um livro que seria uma espécie de "sucessor espiritual" ao Starfist.

Contrariando as minhas expectactivas, tenho que dizer que o livro é mau. Não sei se será por faltar o Dan Cragg ou pelo facto de ter sido editado por uma editor

I enjoyed it. For those familiar with the Starfist series this will be as though an old friend. the difference I have noted so far is that "Issue in Doubt" is far more business like in delivery. at times it read like an after action report. I don't yet feel any particular attachment to the characters as I did in the Starfist Series but it's only the first book which seems more intent on setting the stage rather than developing characters. I am eagerly awaiting the next book to learn more about ...more

Great introduction

Great introduction

Issue in doubt is a great introduction to a potential new set of books. It is military science fiction at its finest. My only regret was that we need more. Mr Sherman has a talent for making you feel like you are taking part in the action.

Quite a business like book from Sherman which was very dry and technical. The book finished almost at the beginning of the build for the story so there is a lot more needed to start getting a feel for this and any others in the series.

Very much what he has written before but with a new direction for the characters here.

this was a major disappointment. I'm a big fan of the Starfist series and this wasn't even close to those in quality. Diffuse story line. Writing too technical and doesn't add to story. Lousy ending.
