Good book, a bit predictable. Lays the foundation for a solid world. Hero feels real not an instantly op God of death.

No real criticisms. Great to see the difference of opinions of the protagonists. The world feels fleshed out and unique. Looking forward to Book 3.

Jack Campbell has successfully pulled me in without boring me with over complicated jargon and overcomplicated systems. I've come to care for characters as well as despise others. It will be interesting seeing what turn the series's character development will take. would recommend wholeheartedly with even a passing interest in military sci fi.
