This series is not just for those who know they like military SF. This is for readers who love good characters, suspense, and unexpected plot twists. Coles is an author to watch: his military background is clear, and his skill at observing people and figuring out why they would do the unconscionable is astounding. This series taught me about a side of people that I’ve avoided, and I’m a better person for knowing about it. Try these books: they will surprise you.
