I don’t usually reach for soldiery books, as I often find all the action is done better on a big screen. Not so here. Kevin Ikenberry created a world I (almost, but only because this world is one scary place) wanted to jump right into. I’d be happy to meet those characters, well, except for that one cold calculating woman, she terrifies me. Pace and tension kept me engaged and eager to keep turning pages. The relationship aspect was possibly a little simpler than real-life, but hey, the book is written by a guy. Took me a chapter or two to get into it, but then I couldn’t put it down.
I’m now awaiting the next one; quite eager to find out where Mally puts herself (possibly in the mind of that woman – would be deliciously cunning). And him and her and the general… oh the possibilities are endless!
Well done, Mr. Ikenberry. Your debut novel has me hooked.
Kevin, please say there will be a next one, and soon!
