Descrizione

The alien forces known as the Lankies are gathering on the solar system's edge, consolidating their conquest of Mars and setting their sights on Earth. The far-off colony of New Svalbard, cut off from the rest of the galaxy by the Lanky blockade, teeters on the verge of starvation and collapse. The forces of the two Earth alliances have won minor skirmishes but are in danger of losing the war. For battle-weary staff sergeant Andrew Grayson and the ragged forces of the North American Commonwealth, the fight for survival is entering a catastrophic new phase.

Forging an uneasy alliance with their Sino-Russian enemies, the NAC launches a hybrid task force on a long shot: a stealth mission to breach the Lanky blockade and reestablish supply lines with Earth. Plunging into combat against a merciless alien species that outguns, outmaneuvers, and outfights them at every turn, Andrew and his fellow troopers could end up cornered on their home turf, with no way out and no hope for reinforcement. And this time, the struggle for humanity's future can only end in either victory or annihilation.

    Valiant sacrifices, some small victories over the aliens and a return to earth. Cpl Jackson reappears in a new role and a resurgence of effort continues. Lots of room left for some good adventures and I am looking forward to them.

    Excellent addition to the series.
  • (5/5)
    I liked it almost as much as book 2 which I liked almost as much as book 1. This one has the most "moralizing" in it of the 3, but I think Kloos still managed to not be overly annoying as he made his social commentary point. Do I think the world would stay at war (even for only 5 years) among the different human factions when the entire race is being destroyed by alien forces... no, I don't. This required a suspension of disbelief -in a sci-fi novel no less - that I think was a bit of a stretch.But, essentially, if you liked books 1-2, you should like this one just as much. It's the same tone and characterization, and pretty much the same activities (guy goes to war, stuff blows up, guy comes home). Set in space. And no cliff hanger, but there is room for more books with these characters, in this world.

    Good continuation of the series, with several possibilities opened for future installments.

    This is third book of the Frontlines series. Its a fun summer read. Its the story of how the refugeesin the Foralhaut B system made peace with their former enemies to fight against the unstoppable aliens known as Lanky's. The story kept my attention the action comes at a fast pace yet it does not sacrifice character development. It does suffer from weaknesses that other military science books suffer from. You would think if the world was in peril the writer would tell what was happening all over the planet not just North America. Or that aliens capable of making spaceships and putting Earth on her knees would have equally dangerous ground combat weapons, not just big bodies and strong arms.That said Kloos does leave the reader wanting more. in the next book of the series hopefully we will get an idea of where the Earth fleet ran off to, and learn more about the Lanky other than they look like dinosaurs fly spaceships and want to kill human civilization.

    Series is getting stale. I’m moving on to something else.

    Did like the moon arc but hated how they didn't reveal their achievement when they came back (Would had bolsterd humanities morale).Still a semi-soild book that fits into the overarching series.

    Great read!!! One of the better SF writer now living
  • (3/5)
    Keeping in mind the modest agenda that Kloos had starting out for this series this installment feels a little bit weak. While the gears are going to dramatically shift in where this epic is going the the relentlessly worms-eye view of the series tells against this book, as one wishes that one had a better sense of what the perspective is from the commanding heights of the society Kloos depicts.

    I love this series so far. The action is continuous and the charters are well defined.
