In this military science fiction series, of which this is book two, we have the legendary Legionnaires as our protagonists.
Humanity had defeated the Hudathan fleet and taken prisoners. It seemed only poetic justice to place them on Worbers World which they had devastated. Now 20 years on, something is happening on Worbers World.
The Hudathans rise again and the War starts again. New technology on both sides presents challenges all around. Humanity has a secret weapon, but are unsure whether it can work.
Battles in space and on Algeron proceed at a fast pace.
Characters are fully developed, plots; and sub-plots flow as Dietz spins his tale.
Characters are well developed and the multiple minor story lines bubble along and eventually merge with the overall story.
Lots of good military battles, as well as political ones.
Dietz ranks right up there with Ian Douglas and Jack Campbell in military science fiction.
This is book two of a series which I know I am going to enjoy reading the rest.
Be sure to check this series out, you will not be disappointed
