I've recently started reading again. Something I probably should have done long ago. I actually really enjoyed this book. It wasn't your typical Hero from planet Zog fiction junk. It was a well thought out original plot with just enough hard hitting action. It's obvious Abnett is more of a battle sequence writer but again, he does a great job seamlessly moving the original plot forward and explaining things that simply should not be explained as well as he does them. Don't want to spoil it though. Short but entertaining. Enjoy.

Standard Abnett Novel: Solid, Not Amazing

This is a pretty typical novel for Abnett: An action oriented, mil sci-fi genre novel, good read but not a lot of weight to it. It's fast to read and entertaining, but ultimately somewhat shallow. It hits on a couple big issues---e.g., post-global corporate states, tele-mind control, and the relationship between media and government, particularly in war. But it doesn't dig into any of them, or even really hint at some of the complexities lurking there. Further, it employs very much a 1980s conception of war, boosted by just a little high tech but in meaningless ways. Drones, genetics, many of these things are more than just minor tactics adjustments, but they're not present and the contradiction of a very high tech society but comparatively low tech military is unexplained and somewhat glaring. All in all, a good light read for fans of the genre, otherwise not overly compelling.
