really liked it

I've really liked the fantasy works of Myke Cole and knowing his background I looked forward to trying a science fiction one as well. Also one of my favorite genres is military sci-fi, so this looked like an ideal candidate. And it worked out. I really liked a lot about this book, but surprisingly not the military details (of which there are plenty) were the ones that really made it work for me. I rather liked the characters and the emotional journey they went through. Also, I don't want to spoil anything but I really really liked the storyline and the twists and detours it went through. A will definitely follow the other works of this author for sure.
Solid 4 stars.

“Jesus,” Oliver straightened, stared at the sheer enormity of the firepower all around her. “This whole thing could go pear-shaped if somebody sneezes.” Pervez stood, lifting the anti-materiel gun by its carry handle. “Guess we better not sneeze.”

“You’ll have to be my XO for now. You like that idea?” Chief arched an eyebrow. “No, ma’am.” “Welp,” Oliver said, “if you wanted options, you wouldn’t have joined the military. Let’s get this show on the road, XO!” “Aye aye, ma’am,”
