I have read considerable military SF by master authors like David Weber, Michael Z. Williamson, David Drake and others, and ‘Virtues of War’ is at least their equal.

Talk about hitting the ground running. Coles doesn’t pull any punches. The fast-moving pace of the story is terrific and makes it an absolute pleasure to read.

A slam bang ending with several surprises, and chief among them is where each of the leads winds up. Without spoiling anything, the next book in this series cannot come soon enough.

In ‘Ghosts of War’ Coles explores not just the shiny future military tech aspects of the story, but also the lingering effects of the first book’s harrowing events on the psyches of the three protagonists.

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.
