Publisher's Summary

The war may be over, but the fighting continues as SOLCOM learns of an excursion by the Ross'El against an unaffiliated prespace civilization in the no man's land between Earth and the Alien Alliance.
With always more questions than answers, SOLCOM dispatches a ship to quietly survey the situation and determine what, if any, course of action is best. Captain Sorilla Aida and her team are the ground element assigned to the task, with the clear understanding that no matter what, they are to remain undetected by the alien overlords now controlling the moon world.
Sorilla knows only one thing for certain as she learns more about the situation: Oppression is universal, freedom is never free...and this is exactly what she trained for.

maybe it's just me

This story had potential but the narrators dry delivery made it hard to get into. I think there was a lot of action in this book but you wouldn't know it because the narrator's tone never wavered. I was also dissapointed that the author did not provide much texture to the environment and the charachters felt flat and bland.

Aida and Story Experiencing Burnout

A big let-down in many ways: a) Way too much repetitive discussion on how inscrutable and ruthless the Ross'El were, b) out-of-character Aida philosophy-waxing and even "war-is-hell" preachy at times, c) bringing down army troops as lead force on the insurgency and then landing the marines much time later, d) a mere captain (Aida) given the authority to call a "Zulu" audible to bring forth the 10 meter titans and break mission critical overt status, e) the 10s of tons of titans being able to instantly jump over 20 meters in the air using their thruster power which by definition are only maneuvering rockets, f) the same titan to use that jump to artfully place a jujitsu-like titan knee face plant on an approaching enemy golem, g) Aida being able to gain a rudimentary understanding of an ancient Grav starship within a few minutes because ... polyglot.

In the end, Aida did get one thing right, she should have stayed a first sergeant.

With that said, the writing and narration were still good; it was just the story that had degraded.
