    Parts of this book is much better than the first one in the series and first one was fairly good However, parts of this book is, in my opinion, much worse as well The parts that are better, well that is simply a fact The writing of the author have improved substantially from the, sometimes boring, report style telling of facts that was present in the first book The parts that are worse, well that is due to my personal taste than any fault of the authors writing I will get to that.As I said, the [...]

    Wow These are great books If you like space battles and tactics then you ve got to read these books This one starts out with a pretty interesting space naval battle led by an Admiral in the Alliance Navy who is already a hero and ready to prove his extreme abilities once again Unfortunately, he becomes a target of the enemy and they will try whatever it takes to get him eliminated And, not only is this Admiral targeted but his Marine counterpart is also on the assassination list Our previous her [...]

    Well, this is better than the last book in some ways, and worse in other ways I did at least feel a bit invested in the story than the last book was happening However, since it mostly happened at a much higher plane than the last book upper echelons of government discussing huge invasions, compared to an individual soldier describing his life in the trenches , the inventiveness of the technology and the well crafted world the only thing that got book 1 a 3 star rating from me was totally missi [...]

    I admit that the first book in Jay Allan s Crimson Worlds series was a bit of a slog for me However, this book is such a vast improvement that I m now fully invested in the story This feels like a true narrative than the last, and the characters and action seem much realized and three dimensional Politics and intrigue begin to center stage among the well described futuristic space combat, and the universe of the novel comes to life in this action packed page turner I commend the author for swi [...]

    I just finished this excellent novel, and have already started on the third installment As other reviewers have noted, the writing is better than the first book and the format timeline is much easier to follow.Even though this book could be a stand alone, I am hindered by the fact that I read the first book first As such, there was some duplication of items of character development, weapons, and tactics Admittedly, I started to gloss over some of the character descriptions from the first book, b [...]

    Too BadFirst, the Mil, SciFi, Fiction part of the story, book was entertaining Book 1 was better, IMO, detail and action , story reasonably consistent throughout However, the MC was consistently promoted and it wasn t until this book where he showed some solid military acumen His accomplishments in book 1 didn t merit his rise.But my issue, and reason I m going to stop reading series, is authors political agenda or essentially major story line I believe this book transitions plot to the familia [...]

    This book widens the focus of the narrative somewhat so we have a naval commander s eye view of the ongoing war as well as the planet based Marine view Erik Cain continues his rise, as does General Holm and the newly introduced Admiral Garrett, as the war continues and reaches a climax on the very planet where Cain experienced his first battle We also catch glimpses of the Earth beyond the Alliance particularly the CAC ruling committee as a contrast to the Alliance Directorate.An enjoyable and t [...]

    Another good series by Jay Allan I find the characters to be my kind of people and look forward to reading the entire series The only negative I have is to comment on the somewhat than necessary rehashing of previous events As this is a series and I am going to read it in order, I feel there is not so much need to talk about what happened in previous books Keep things flowing, we know what happened before.

    Another excellent book by Jay Allan I read the later books first and am just now going through the first books I am enjoying reading them, even though some parts are gritty it is war after all and hope these books end up as movies some day.I am, of course, rooting for the Marines even though they are fictional characters Semper Fi

    Better then the first book This book has character interactions then the first The storyline is starting to fill up If you like naval and boots on the ground action this is a good series

    Luke Charles
    Didnt like it as much as the last book but it seems like a good setup for the next story Trouble is brewing I will read the next book.

    Timothy Boyd
    Very nice Military SiFi series well written and a good solid read The writer has a good feel for the mind and emotions of the military characters he writes about Very recommended

    Even tough it was much readable than the previous book in the series I have to rate this one lower than it.The book is just too full of good guys are invincible and can t do a wrong thing In all the battles described in the book, both space and surface, our main characters are facing at least twice the number of enemies but each and every time they come out victorious, and I mean they actually devastate the enemies Their every decision is fail proof and their every action meets with a resoundin [...]

    I guess I just got tired of all the space battles I liked the characters, but too many war ships in space for me.

    Although better than the first book in the series, this second one still managed to leave me even disappointed How s that possible, you ask Well, let s see chalk up the following as part review and part advice for would be military sci fi authors The writing was better in a general sense It was easier to read and had fewer points where I was thrown out of the story That s about the best good thing I can say about it.The story had great potential in the plot, but for each plot point, it complete [...]

    The Cost of Victory is an action pack story At the beginning of this story, The Alliance is defending their position out in space against the Imperial military As the story continue, the readers will realize that the war is among the nations on Earth It is not an alien forces that Earth is against The only difference is that the treaty between Nations demands that the war is taken out to space instead of on Earth It is kind of silly but then again, I haven t read the first book It is nation vs n [...]

    This review covers Crimson Worlds Books 1 9 I read them consecutively, so can only review them comprehensively.Overall The books are really good, but fall short of being great, for reasons I ll outline below.Characters The protagonists are well written, likable, and appropriately complex The antagonists are clever, and help drive the plot, but perhaps at times lack sufficient positive features to make them completely realistic.Writing Editing The copy editing is well done no complaints there The [...]

    This is the second book of the Crimson Worlds series It follows Marines , which is a very good start to the series.Jay Allan follows up on his successful first book with the same concise intensity he used in Marines Mr Allan paints vivid combat pictures without getting overly detailed This helps in keeping the story flowing well and keeps the reader engaged in the story.In this book, Allan keeps the same strong characters as the first book and the reader sees them grow in depth He also adds some [...]

    The second novel in Jay Allan s Crimson Worlds military sci fi series, this I felt was a marked improvement over the previous entry over Marines.A largwe part of the reason for that, I feel, is due to the increased scope told in the familiar third person narrative than in the first person, with that decision wideningo ut the scope of what can be conveyed no longer are we restricted solely to what impacts on the central character himself.That s not to say this is perfect certain sections did hav [...]

    Fred Hughes
    Another great military science fiction story in this series.In book 2 of the series we find Carson s World An old mining planet where the population was wiped out by a mystery plague is now fought over by enemy and friendly Earth forces, both in space and on the planet surface.What appears to be a small war about a useless planet is actually a trap to kill Admiral Garrett But why What is on Carson s world that makes it so valuable You ll just have to read the book to find out.HIGHLY recommended [...]

    Good story but less fillers pleasethe grammar patrol will have some issues with this story I can read right through the various mistakes, not that I found too many but there are some glaring mix ups with transposed names The story line is similar to Terms of Enlistment and Lines of Departure The thing I don t care for is how every time we get a description of how salute in armor is sloppy, or how expression can t be seen in armor I have enjoyed these stories so far but that stuff will turn me of [...]

    Chris
    3 5 stars The book was a good read and enjoyable but not as good to me as the first, since the first is in the format of a Starship Troopers or Old Man s War This second book in the series expanded the scope of views in Allan s world of the future, showing the behind the scenes of politics from different sides while still giving action and space warfare The pace of the book could be a bit slow at times but was richly detailed and the battle action scenes were done very nicely Curious as to how [...]

    Duncan Rice
    Significantly better than the first book There is dialogue but still far too much explication There is also the possibility of an interesting conflict, which the first book totally lacked The writer needs to hire a good editor and work with character and plot development He spends most of his time on simple narrative and explication Terms like as you know should never appear in any kind of writing, as it does repeatedly in this I ll read the third book, since I got it in the Bookbub package But [...]

    Charles
    This is the second enrty in this series and enjoyed it This book still feels a little rushed like the first one but not as bad thats my only real complaint On the plus side naval space battles are added to the mix and he does a great job describing the battles, he also describes in detail the tactics in the battles Im guessing the author was once in the military since he is describing actual tactics used by our military All in all another good read

    3.5 StarsI enjoyed the book, but I got irritated by the amount of times somebody said As you know.People don t talk like that That isn t even acceptable in movies, and completely unnecessary in books, where a little exposition works so much better.Other than that it was a great read, even if the protagonists were a little too unbeatably good for my tastes.

    Danny L Walling
    4.5 starsThis book just didn t have what book one had One of the things that I didn t like was the world has so much action going on at once and I cannot believe the cogs and sub middle class are that much of wusses that they don t rebelled Also, the colonies Too much backstabbing.

    Phil Bunce
    The storey continuesAn excellent book that keeps you interested This is a military based work of fiction that captivates the imagination Politicians exploiting their ill gained comforts closer to reality than you might think.Phil

    Barry
    All I can say is that this book is a pure adrenaline ride Military Science Fiction with space battles and troop battles all expertly written In this book there is no character developement just fighting.

    Robert Fayle
    The writing got better
