I have been reading SciFi for well over 50 years and it's rare that I have been captivated by a series like this authors first three books. His writing and character development in on pare with CS Forester, Jack Campbell and David Weber.

Looking forward to the next book. . . A thoroughly enjoyable read! An instantly relatable protagonist--taut, dynamic battle sequences--fast-paced and engaging. . .I found it hard to put down. A great introductory offering from a promising new voice in the genre of Mil Sci Fi. I'm eagerly awaiting the next episode in the adventures of Captain Heskan & Co.!

If you are space travel and physics savvy, you may pick up a few inconsistencies and outright mistakes in the descriptions, but it wasn't enough to spoil the story.

The crew of the BRS Anelace was told that their posting to tke Skathi system was a waste of resources to make a careless mining company happy. Lt. Heskan, the newly appointed captain of the Anelace was assured of the same thing, although he suspected it was also retaliation for an event during his last command. While his suspicion might have been true, if unprovable, the description of this mission proved to be an utter falsehood. This was a wonderfully detailed look at a space navy with all its bells, whistles, warts, and blemishes. The combat sequence, while long by page count, was a compelling page turner as the focus moved seamlessly between the Anelace's bridge, various stations aboard Anelace, and stations on the opposing ships. I am definitely looking forward to additional books in this series.

Although the plot is similar to others in this field it was still a good, solid read.

Britt Ringel's series can't help but be compared with David Weber's "Honor Harrington" series, from when it was fresh, engaging, and exciting. The pacing is excellent, the character development is top-notch, and the technobabble is just meaty enough to be interesting without being dense or dry. I very much hope that Mr. Ringel will continue to develop and deliver on this excellent work and the engaging universe of the Brevic/Halloran struggle.
