    The year is 2108, and the North American Commonwealth is bursting at the seams. For welfare rats like Andrew Grayson, there are only two ways out of the crime-ridden and filthy welfare tenements, where you’re restricted to 2,000 calories of badly flavored soy every day. You can hope to win the lottery and draw a ticket on a colony ship settling off-world, or you can join the service. With the colony lottery a pipe dream, Andrew chooses to enlist in the armed forces for a shot at real food, a retirement bonus, and maybe a ticket off Earth.

    Solid military sci-fi.

    The story of rookie pilot Lt. Halley's first drop ship command. (A short story in the Terms of Enlistment universe.)

    Feel good story - but overpriced at $6.00

    In the aftermath of the Battle of Detroit, Corporal Jackson finds out how the 365th AIB got a mauling in the Public Residence Clusters, and why the Territorial Army may have lost control over a big chunk of Detroit. A novella in the Terms of Enlistment universe.

    Ended too soon for me..

    This story was great, I just wish it had been a little longer. I wanted to see the definitive moment when Jackson voiced her final decision on Lazarus..Show More »

    The alien forces known as the Lankies are gathering on the solar system's edge, consolidating their conquest of Mars and setting their sights on Earth. The far-off colony of New Svalbard, cut off from the rest of the galaxy by the Lanky blockade, teeters on the verge of starvation and collapse. The forces of the two Earth alliances have won minor skirmishes but are in danger of losing the war.

    New twist on great military SF

    The third book in this no-longer-a-trilogy (it was originally supposed to be three books, now it will be at least four) is the strongest yet. Kloos p..Show More »

    The assault on Earth was thwarted by the destruction of the aliens' seed ship, but with Mars still under Lanky control, survivors work frantically to rebuild fighting capacity and shore up planetary defenses. Platoon sergeant Andrew Grayson must crash-course train new volunteers - all while dulling his searing memories of battle with alcohol and meds.

    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.

    Best book yet in an already great series

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