...this week has been in book format.
While I enjoyed John Ringo's Mack-Bolan-For-The-21st-Century Kildar series, I've never been one for his SF; I jumped into the Posleen books with both feet, but only hung on about as far as halfway through the second book.
I've also enjoyed Dave Weber's books, although the Honor Harrington series has reached a point where it can only progress if they invent new super-dreadnoughts that cost infinity dollars to build, launch entire stars at each other, and Honor herself inevitably gets promoted to God, j.g..
So when folks recommended the series co-authored by the duo that begins with the book March Upcountry, I was skeptical. But any book by two military SF authors with a Xenophon reference right in the title can't be all bad, right?
As it turns out, no. It's not bad at all. In fact, I'm about a chapter away from finishing the sequel, March to the Sea, and March to the Stars is in the on-deck circle and, barring a major cockup or totally unexpected shark-jumping somewhere in the final volume, I'll have considered this to be money and time well spent. Two powered armor thumbs up.
