Best of the series, and a deeper story than the earlier books. More like this, please. ( )

Good, but did it really need to be SS ( )

Taking place at about the same time as the first 3 books in this series, this takes place across the Atlantic in Germany, primarily. A slightly different style than the previous books, quite probably attributable to Tom Kratman's influence, it is still an entertaining read. Not the best of the series so far, and it took me a bit to get into it, quite possibly due to having a whole new set of characters to get familiarized with. It also throws in a bit more of humanity's backlash at the Darhel in the epilogue. ( )

First words

The soldier wore black.

Snow flecked the cheeks and eyebrows, falling softly to cover a scene of horror with a clean white blanket.

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

The invaders are coming--the Posleen, a seemingly unstoppable horde who have conquered one star system after another, literally feeding on their conquests. Earth's dubious allies, the Darhel, have given the humans a number of highly advanced technological devices, including a process for rejuvenating trained and proven soldiers who otherwise would be too old to fight. Rejuvenation may give a critical edge, since to survive, the Earth must use every resource at hand. Every resource... The Chancellor of Germany finds he must tap the one group he had sworn never, ever, to recall: the few remaining survivors of the Waffen SS. Has he made a devil's bargain, or is this a chance for the reviled SS at last to fight the good fight? And, perhaps, gain redemption?… (more)
