While I have enjoyed Tom's other books, this one leaves too many questions unanswered for me to give it a higher rating. It took me a little while to realise that I'd started in the middle of the story, then went back to the beginning, and then jumped back to the ending. This I can partially excuse, but there is just too much that gets left out along the way.
While the parts that deal with Maria's training make for great reading, and some of the action is specific and detailed, I want to know more about the Tauran Invasion, how the battle for the "impregnable" island went, how did the Zhong get involved, how did the Amazons manage to travel without difficulty once the invasion had started, who was it that (presumably) rescued Maria, and how much time elapsed from the beginning of the creation of the Gorgidas tercio, to the epilogue where Maria is a senior Centurion.
I hope and pray that this will all be dealt with in the next book, whenever that is forthcoming.
