This was an awesome read. I totally enjoyed it. Blackeagle decides to try and train Hrinn as rangers for the army, but they have a hard time trying to get along without trying to kill one another. Then they get stranded on a peaceful planet that the enemy flek have invaded. The Hrinn and Humans have to learn to work together to survive. This book sucked me in. It was very good, mostly military scifi, and likable characters. It was sort of left open and I hope Wentworth continues with this story.
Enjoyed this book very much. Gives a view of alien thinking as it relates to humans.
Raised by a human, Heyoka Blackeagle thinks like a human, even if he is a typical hrinn--seven feet tall, covered with fur, and equipped with retractable claws. In the war against the insectlike flek, Heyoka distinguished himself in the Ranger Corps. Now, on a planet from which the flek have been driven, he's leading a group of humans and hrinn, trying to prove that hrinn can make proficient rangers in spite of their disdain for following orders.
Darn good space opera!
