Publisher's Summary

The time has come to take the fight to the Lankies.

Mars has been under Lanky control for more than a year. Since then, the depleted forces of Earth's alliances have rebuilt their fleets, staffing old warships with freshly trained troops. Torn between the need to beat the Lankies to the punch and taking enough time to put together an effective fighting force, command has decided to strike now.

Once again, seasoned veterans Andrew and Halley find themselves in charge of green troops and at the sharp tip of the spear as the combined military might of Earth goes up against the Lankies. But if there's one constant in war, it's that no battle plan survives first contact with the enemy...and the Lankies want to hold on to Mars as badly as humanity wants to reclaim it.

    Luke Daniels could make the phone book interesting. This was the best yet in the series.

    "Great continuation of the series!"

    One of my favorite science fiction/space opera series.A well written first person prospective that is refreshingly different to most of the military sci-fi books out there. Also Luke Daniels is on my list of favorite narrators. If anyone else read this series I would be disappointed. Overall, I am left wanting more and wished the next book was already out!

    "Another EXCELLENT Entry in this Series"

    I cannot believe I've devoured this audio book so quickly. You will be on the edge listening to (the amazing) Luke Daniels deliver this latest story of Andrew on Mars. Very well done.

    "Another gripping installment of the Frontlines"

    Riveted from start to finish. Luke Daniels's performance was ace, with lots of highs and lows and fantastic characterizations necessary to really bring the story to life. Kloos's storytelling is fabulous with just enough exposition within the action to help you understand and visualize what's going on without overdoing the internal monologue. Please balance! More please!

    Any additional comments?

    The Lankies are on Mars, terraforming it to suit their requirements, which means that the already established human settlers will die. With a rebuilt fleet and new (barely) trained troopers, it's time to mount a rescue attack and remove Lankey threat from the solar system. As seasoned officers, Andrew and Halley will be part of the offensive, apart, and each hoping for the other's survival.

    Frontlines is a marvellous and innovative series, which has charted Andrew's life from the relatively carefree days of recruitment and training, through first contact with the seemingly unstoppable Lankies in far space, to the aliens threatening Earth itself from the Red Planet. Each character is powerfully portrayed, especially Andrew, through who's eyes we not only see and are immersed in the action but also experience his hopes, fears and terrors. Narrator Luke Daniels is Andrew. His pleasant to hear voice conveys all of the emotions, subdued but all the more powerful because of it. His voicing of the other protagonists is distinctive, fitting their origins and personalities With his reading, an already excellent story becomes fully alive. And frighteningly real.

    This, the fifth in the series, can be read/heard as a standalone​ but is so much better with knowledge of previous books. Those who have already travelled this far with Andrew will have no need of my urgings to buy Fields of Fire. For readers yet to discover Marko Kloos' Frontlines series, how fortunate you are to have this exciting journey still to enjoy. Buy this book now, then go back to the beginning ...
    Only one criticism: it will be a long wait until the next book.
