I just finished the 6th book (of the 8 written so far) and thought I'd go back and write a review of the first in the series. I have not read a great deal of military Sci-Fi, but even without regard to the genre this is a great read. The plot is clever and complex. The military and historical information on the French Foreign Legion is a lot of fun as well.
The oddest sensation as I read it, was that it seemed familiar. Although written years before the movie, if I were the author, I'd be a bit miffed by the movie Avatar -- since 80% of the movie came out of this book...and another 15% came out of subsequent books in the series. (It is hard to tell if it was copied, or whether these are inevitable themes -- but it made me feel sorry for this author.)
If you like series books, such as the Lost Fleet series, or just a good adventure in space story -- this is a wonderful book.
