Angles of Attack

Angles of Attack Review

The alien forces known as the Lankies are gathering on the solar system’s edge, consolidating their conquest of Mars and setting their sights on Earth. The far-off colony of New Svalbard, cut off from the rest of the galaxy by the Lanky blockade, teeters on the verge of starvation and collapse. The forces of the two Earth alliances have won minor skirmishes but are in danger of losing the war. For battle-weary staff sergeant Andrew Grayson and the ragged forces of the North American Commonwealth, the fight for survival is entering a catastrophic new phase.

Forging an uneasy alliance with their Sino-Russian enemies, the NAC launches a hybrid task force on a long shot: a stealth mission to breach the Lanky blockade and reestablish supply lines with Earth. Plunging into combat against a merciless alien species that outguns, outmaneuvers, and outfights them at every turn, Andrew and his fellow troopers could end up cornered on their home turf, with no way out and no hope for reinforcement. And this time, the struggle for humanity’s future can only end in either victory or annihilation.

    Military Sci-Fi is a subgenre I've loved ever since I saw Aliens back in the '80s as a kid, and have practically eaten up every bit of it I could get my hands on since then, from Heinlein's Starship T...

    Jesus christ, you figured out how to kill them at the end of last book, why didn't a) anyone else figure out something so simple, or b) do it again? Every time they turn up I think "aha, let's just fi...

    Among the many straightforward military SF series I've started, Marko Kloos's "Frontlines" is one of the few I've stuck with. Three books in, it is not slumping, and while it does show signs of develo...

    Generally this is a good book continuing the Frontlines story but I do indeed have some gripes with some aspects of the story. The book starts off with a nice piece of action where the Commonwealth an...
