If you're expecting strong links to the previous Lazarus War books you are likely to be disappointed. Not only does the author struggle to realistically present the story from a female pov, the narrator does not clearly define characters well. It seemed to me that the narrator was confused at times and lapsed into the persona of other characters by mistake.The language used in this book had me in perpetual eye roll to the point I couldn't finish it. When the dialogue is littered with alternatives to the word SAID and the characters start exhorting (and similar substitutes) it becomes quite jarring to the listener. Male authors often fail to portray the perspective of a strong female lead with credibility. This is certainly the case here. More research please. (What woman would think of a sexual encounter as rutting? And come to think of it there was way too much introspection). Although I liked the Lazarus Wars series this was so disappointing and frustrating I couldn't finish it.

I like a good, long book and this is short by my recent standards. But although I stuck with it at first I finally gave up halfway. Some very good ideas in it but for me it just didn't hold my interest.
If you enjoyed the Lazarus War Trilogy, you'll know what your letting yourself in for. More sim op shenanigans featuring a new rag tag outfit as they fight their way from one explosive action scene to the next.
