Editorial Reviews

The B&N Review
"The Myriad begins a series that is an amalgam of subgenres: military science fiction, space opera, time paradox, and alternate history.... This novel will prove thoroughly enjoyable to fans of military science fiction authors like David Weber and David Drake."
SciFi.com
"The novel is full of action, tough military talk, and space-opera war."

    Good sci-fi but puerile story-telling

    The sci-fi was pretty good, at least as far as page 50, where I had to bail out. On page 50 the head of the Marine air wing explains to the battleship commander why he wants a specific female pilot to be part of a landing party. He basically says that she is the nastiest "she-dog" (her phrase) on the ship. The use of that term instead of what really would have been used was the last straw for me. This book seems targeted at girls from about 14 to 20, especially those with no knowledge of the military or what military shipboard life is like. Among other annoying bits, the introduction of every new man includes a description of what I would call his "hunk factor," which I found puerile. The military activities and environment were not at all like how it really is, something about which I am knowledgeable. I guarantee you that precious few captains are on a first name basis with any of their officers, especially the very serious, iconic ones such as the author tries to create here. If her books are not aimed at the young woman audience, I strongly suggest that long before Red Team the author have someone who has factual knowledge of the environment she is trying to project read her future works and comment on whether they ring true. Good sci-fi content will only take you so far if
    the characterization and interpersonal relationships are not done well and the environmental setting and dynamics don't ring true. Further, in my opinion, the cited reviews were accurate only if based on the market cited earlier; I did not considered them representative of the sci-fi readers' population overall.
