Publisher's Summary

Salchar and the Free Fleet are tired, low on resources, man power and ships that should actually be flying. Yet they have a mandate, free those that are being oppressed. 

Sarenmenti, Humans, Kuruvians, Chaleelians, and the genetic creations of the AI called the Planner, Avarians, band together under the banner of the Free Fleet to go to the fleet’s birthplace - Earth. Life is nothing but a battle for a survival, and Salchar is going to have to use all of his skills to keep his people alive. 

The galaxy has a few surprises to throw his way, as well as some politicians up to their own games. Salchar is going to wish for battles instead of dealing with the twisted minds of politicians and a people that think they are still the center of the universe.

The politics of the U.S.

I did not enjoy the portral of the USA, it goes against the ideas of the free fleet by ostracizing one of the few countries that would welcome this force. Even with a militant society the US would assist in free fleet activity willingly, examples, NATO and Korean war. the fact that the characters don't bring up the USA's willingness to fight against oppressive regimes, kinda shows a very idealized world view. likley the author does not agree with republics as a form of government and that use US intervention in world conflicts is wrong. even though with the emphasis on South Korea, which exists due to that intervention. just a thought.

Tacticaly inept and politically motivated

Besides the characters not really growing and changing. This book was riddled with tactical errors and a complete non understanding of fleet tactics and military tactics. The throwing of marines while still engaged in fleet fighting was just waisting lives. The writer needs to think tactically on fleet formations. What each ship does and how it would fight in space. The writer seems to write his engagement as if they were on land and at a speed that would be seen on the water. Your in space with a speed that is close to the speed of light and your ships just sit there. No formations used,No tactical planning, No maneuvers being used. The thought process of the fights were written as if he drew it on a piece of paper and pretended to play it out on that. When the marines are fighting its even worse. Understanding what a commando does or a navy seal does. Regardless of how over powered they are without tactics they will fail. I liked his other books but this one was just so horribly written without any tactical knowledge or insight i couldn’t finish it. I would recommend the writer have at least some knowledge of military tactics but it was apparent he does not. As for the America being horrible and better then anyone else. And siding with the syndicate in slave labor. You should have rained that in and not made this book so politically motivated. Your the writer and you choose what to write. I was just in aww of the written hatred you have for a country it was pretty appalling to be honest.

space opera goodness

I like a hero that is a hero first and confused second. This story does not wait time on the MC whingeing or second guessing. The writer does well with putting just enough in so you know the MC is not uncaring. Well done. I always play these books at 1.30 speed though. *shrug*

Yes and more please and thanks

A great story and who doesn't love seeing horrible people (humanoids) get what they deserve. I do feel bad for the children that lost their childhood, but war is a MF.
