More addictively great story-telling fir fans of military sci-fi. Each of these stories showing a bit of a different role for pilots, combat flying, scouts, survival post crash, etc., all fit into great storytelling with superb character building. Also a perfect happily ever after ending for our heroine lead (though there is room for more tales - hint, hint, Janes P Brazee - if the author ever desires to do so. All in all fantastic stuff and I highly recommend each book in the series as well as ...more

Someone who has been there

Many similarities to his own service, a recognition of Napoleon s maxim that men will fight for a little piece of cloth, which was interesting with the scene of Floribeth and the marine colonel checking out her rack. I like the story, the angst, the future human society described, etc.
I've been more invested in some of his other series, but this one is interesting enough for me to follow it thru.

A great military sci-fi space fighter novel

I have not read many space fighter books but this is a good one. A realistic portrayal of the vastness of battles in the black.
Great characters with lots of action and adventure. With unknown aliens attacking humans out heroes must pull out all the stops to save the day.
I look forward to more from this series 😁

I enjoyed the first book and this was a good sequel. A quick, fast paced read. I felt there was good character development which fit well within the plot of the story. I am looking forward to more. (Read as part of Kindle Unlimited)

Better than book 1

I enjoyed this one - more action than the first, with some personal growth for the heroine. I can do without vulgarity, which is why it lost a star, but otherwise very good - I look forward to more in the series.

A good story

Another good story about Floribeth and the other pilots defending against the mysterious aliens. If the author could stop with the “sista” stuff it would be an even better story.

Excellent series

Finally a Sci-fi with real women characters who actually do something in the military. Although there are only two books so far I am hoping the third book is released in the very near future. A great book within a great series.
