Mildly sprinkled with an Irish accent (which boils down to the character saying Ah instead of I, and sah instead of sir) and heavily sprinkled with SciFi military lingo, this book is excellent if you enjoy the aforementioned elements, but perhaps a little bit less enjoyable if you don't care for them so much.

The action scenes, I should add, don't lose a bit in adrenaline levels with all the lingo. There's a kickass, badass and occasionally very alien alien, badass female characters, and lots of camaraderie between the members of the team. A fun, fast read overall, albeit with a trigger warning for Rape as a Backstory for one of the female characters. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0425256626, Mass Market Paperback)

At the close of the 24th Century, a series of revolutions has caused the galaxy to descend into chaos. With the Galactic Union’s Army stretched thin, mercenary units have arisen for those who have the need—and the means—to hire them…

Captained by former Detached Guerrilla Forces Colonel R.A. “Rags” Cutter, the Cutter Force Initiative is one of the best. A specialized team consisting of both aliens and humans, the Cutters offer services ranging from fight training and protection to extraction and assassination—as long as the target deserves it and their employer makes good on payday.

When they’re hired to find and rescue Indira, the soon-to-be-married daughter of the Rajah Ramal of New Mumbai, the teams’ first task is to identify the kidnapper. The obvious suspects are insurgents who want to overthrow the rajanate, but as other forces enter the game and an assassination attempt is made on Ramal, the Cutters realize that their in-and-out extraction job is about to get a lot more interesting—and a lot more lethal…
