Overview

Book one of the Portal Worlds series, by the author of the best-selling Crimson Worlds series...

Jake Taylor was a New Hampshire farmboy who wanted nothing more than to marry his girlfriend, work on the farm, and maybe one day write a great novel. But mankind was fighting the alien Tegeri and their bio-mechanical cyborg soldiers, and UN Central needed men...men to go to war on hostile worlds far from home.

Jake wasn't given a choice, not a real one. He found himself torn from home and family, conscripted for life and shipped to the planet Erastus to take his place in the battle lines, never to return. Erastus was a sweltering inferno, called Gehenna by the condemned men sent to fight there. In the blasted deserts and steamy jungles of this alien hell, Taylor and his cybernetically-enhanced comrades fight their never-ending war.

As Jake survives battle after battle, he rises steadily through the ranks, giving all to the desperate fight to save Earth. But endless combat in hell carries a cost, and Taylor feels his faith slipping away. He begins to question much of what he's been told, things he'd believed all his life, and the more he learns, the greater his disillusionment grows. He can feel the madness building inside him, slowly taking control.

But when he discovers the ultimate betrayal, a secret more horrific than anything he'd ever imagined, he must decide who is the real enemy...and how to contain the fury and lust for vengeance that threatens to consume him. How far will he go to destroy the true evil and right a horrendous wrong? And if he does what he must to prevail against overwhelming odds and win the final victory, will be become the very thing he has sworn to destroy?

Lots of action but good story line. Perfect book and start of a series for those who don't trust the United Nations......

I really enjoyed this book and look forward to the next one

The book is very close to the feelings of soldiers in the field. As a prior soldier, it is close to the doubts that creep into our minds as we wonder just what is it we are doing and who really benefits from our efforts. Governments send soldiers into battle and than forget us, the US government is not different.

Aside from an occasional spelling or grammer error this is one of the best future war books I have read!

Grammer errors aside Ifound myself getting morr and more captivatef as each page went bye. There is no wasted space on each page and know feeling the authorwas rushing things along. I will have to look further into Jay's works, i haven't read anythung that captivated a soldiers mindset since the Ender'Game series. If your a fan of that you'll probably enjoy this as well.

As a combat vet Iwas amazed by the author being able to describe the feelings and thoughts that I came away with from the experience. This book should be on the bookshelf of every person in the military.

Well written book.  This was the first book I read by this author.  After reading it I went on line to order additional books written by this author.

Lots of action and a lot of serious mental cogitation in view of current present day politics. ------- Leonard

Anyone who enjoys Mr. Allan's Crimson Worlds series, will like this new series. I can't wait for the next book!!! It's like Stargate SG-1 with a bizarre world view twist.

I entered this new series without any knowledge of the author and was pleasantly surprised. I loved it and look forward to the next installment.
