This was an interesting book, but not the best I’ve read. Like the last few space army books there was a hero figure who had all the action focused on them. The ending was a lot more morbid than I was expecting. The other books had a happy ending where everything turned out ok. In this book there was an ending where most of the named characters died, including the love interest (who was a hormonally aged 8 year old, strange), who was supposed to be one of the toughest in the group.
