Reading: Chains of Cpmmand

Last week I read Chains of Command by Marko Kloos.

Marko is one of the authors that encouraged me and gave me a lot of excellent advice when I was writing my first novel. He's a cool guy and writes great military scifi.

Chains of Command is book four in the Frontlines Series.

 The description from Amazon:

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.

Knowing Earth’s uneasy respite won’t last, the North American Commonwealth and its Sino-Russian allies hurtle toward two dangerous options: hit the Lanky forces on Mars or go after deserters who stole a fleet of invaluable warships critical to winning the war. Assigned to a small special ops recon mission to scout out the renegades’ stronghold on a distant moon, Grayson and his wife, dropship pilot Halley, again find themselves headed for the crucible of combat—and a shattering new campaign in the war for humanity’s future.

More excellent adventure in the universe that he has built. Great stuff, highly recommended.

--It is worthy of note, in this novel, that there is a character named: Sergeant Wilsey
