Publisher's Summary

The assault on Earth was thwarted by the destruction of the aliens' seed ship, but with Mars still under Lanky control, survivors work frantically to rebuild fighting capacity and shore up planetary defenses. Platoon sergeant Andrew Grayson must crash-course train new volunteers - all while dulling his searing memories of battle with alcohol and meds.
Knowing Earth's uneasy respite won't last, the North American Commonwealth and its Sino-Russian allies hurtle toward two dangerous options: hit the Lanky forces on Mars or go after deserters who stole a fleet of invaluable warships critical to winning the war. Assigned to a small special ops recon mission to scout out the renegades' stronghold on a distant moon, Grayson and his wife, dropship pilot Halley, again find themselves headed for the crucible of combat - and a shattering new campaign in the war for humanity's future.

Becoming a bit too repetitive

This installment has platoon sergeant Andrew Grayson promoted to 2nd lieutenant for his heroic effort to save earth from a Lanky invasion after it was abandoned by the President and a major portion of the fleet soon after the Lanky appearance. He is given command of a ground force to, ostensibly, run reconnaissance on the small moon where the deserters have relocated. The goal is to provide enough intelligence to a follow-on invasion force who will be tasked to recover the stolen fleet so that a counter invasion can be mounted against the Lanky who now occupy Mars.

The story then unfolds in a somewhat predictable manner as they pursue their mission. Orders change, skirmishes ensue, several close encounters occurs and eventually, they win the day.

Other than the overall repetitive nature of the story, the author's writing is still easy to follow and the narration is still very good.

Half a book but still okay

Pretty good addition to the series. Quite slow during the middle portion but it has a good ending. Should have been combined with next installment in series. Overall worth a credit.
