Nice combat sequences, and an interesting method of introduction of characters. Also includes cat-like aliens, the usual military supply chain of command lacking in "ept", and some intriguing military hardware.

I loved this book.

Science fiction based story about new recruits in a fighting force at the end of an empire (both the geographic end of the empire and the 'time' or final curtain call end of an empire).

The whole series (there are four books) compares favorably to the William Henry Giles Kingston books, the Three Midshipmen thru the Three Admirals and the Brotherhood of War series by WEB Griffin.

Excellent reading, that keeps you engaged and you will not want to put it down. The story includes violence (it is a war book), and alien swear words (so they don't count) and some sexual situations (which are pretty minor and nuanced).

Publisher's Note
The time of the Human Confederation is coming to an end. The rule of the empire weakens daily as its forces stretch themselves beyond their limits to maintain peace and order. For the legionnaires far out in the Cumbre System, cut off from their homeworld, where survival takes precedence over politics. And when a revolution strikes up arms against them, they find they may be the last legion ever to fight in the Confederation's name.
