Points of Impact review

06 Points of Impact Points of Impact

Earth’s armed forces have stopped the Lanky advance and chased their ships out of the solar system, but for CDC officer Andrew Grayson, the war feels anything but won. On Mars, the grinding duty of flushing out the twenty-meter-tall alien invaders from their burrows underground is wearing down troops and equipment at an alarming rate. And for the remaining extrasolar colonies, the threat of a Lanky attack is ever present.

Earth’s game changer? New advanced ships and weapons, designed to hunt and kill Lankies and place humanity’s militaries on equal footing with their formidable foes. Andrew and his wife, Halley, both now burdened with command responsibilities and in charge of more lives than just their own, are once again in humanity’s vanguard as they prepare for this new phase in the war. But the Lankies have their own agenda…and in war, the enemy doesn’t usually wait until you are prepared. As Andrew is once again plunged into the chaos and violence of war with an unyielding species, he is forced to confront the toll this endless conflict is taking on them all, and the high price of survival…at any cost.

I completely goofed and started reading the book that came before this (Fields of Fire) and didn’t realize until I was about 5 chapters in that I was reading the wrong book, but then realized that I didn’t recognize ANYTHING from it. I don’t even see a book review of it on my site, so I may not have even read it, but man that would have been weird, so let this review be for both books: This series is awesome and I love every page of it. I wish Marko Klooos could clone himself and write a few more of these a year to make me happier, or at the very least franchise out the work to some ghost writers. Until he does that I guess I’ll have to settle for just a book a year for a while, at least until he pulls a Scalzi and takes an extended break from the universe that made him famous.

I can’t fault an author for doing that, but I can still complain about it as a fan ?

A small note, I believe I first ran into this series when I tried out Amazon Unlimited and it appears that the entire series is still on there, so if you were to be looking to try out AU, this is a series to go for.
