I quite enjoyed this book and am partway through Book 2 in the series right now. Yes there are some sci-fi tropes in the book, but they don't get in the way of a pretty darn good story. The geopolitical situation outlined in the book is complex enough to keep things moving along with many different angles to consider. There were also plenty of very interesting concepts (paranoid aliens? love 'em) that pop up throughout the book and I, like some other reviewers, enjoyed the backstory of the French Foreign Legion as well. While it is not Great Literature, if you are looking for an enjoyable military sci-fi book I don't think you can go wrong.
