    One thought on “Last Stand of the Legion: Rift”

    1. This could be the start of another great Space Marine story. While we start out reading about Legionaries flying high performance space ships, everything turns around in the next 25 years. Yes, the main character is a young Lt. with a fighter squadron looking for the Aliens who just attacked one of the Confederation colonies. These aliens haven't been seen or heard from in a long, long time. It was thought that they were going to mind their own business and let us alone. Didn't happen!Lt Dasan S [...]

    2. Excellent book, a bit slow and uninspiring to begin with but once it gets going it is right up there with the best military scfi

    3. Great start to the series. I really enjoyed this book. Just when you feel like you have had enough fighting/blood and gore, it switches to something else. If it wasn't for all the grammatical mistakes in the book I would have given it a 5 star rating. Stopping reading to try to figure out what word is missing to make a sentence make sense is annoying. I had to do that many times throughout the series.

    4. This book is one of my favorite space/powered armor combat series. The characters are great, the action is fantastic and there is a reality to the book that most of authors can't seem to capture. It's gruesome, gritty and realistic. In many books it seems that people magically survive, in this it's clear those that survived lucked out or fought for their damned lives. I really hope the second book lives up to what looks like to be the beginning of a great series.

    5. This was an outstanding sci-fi book. Loved every minute of it. The author has taken what would seem like descriptions of current military tactics, training and values, pushed that into the future, and then into space. All successfully! The characters are well developed and believable. Sit down with your favorite beverage and strap in for a great read!

    6. Good readGood stories, well written. The only problem I have is all the oriental names and female characters. It seems to be happening more and more in the realm of science fiction. I have no problem with those types of characters but not as frequently. I find it hard to relate with the characters when the majority is female or oriental as I am neither.

    7. Enjoyable. With even casual editing it would garner four stars. Fast pace. Solid protagonists. Enough sorrow to give it punch without it being a total wallow in despair. Solid cutoff in the action leaves you satisfied and happily moving on to the next book. Get an editor! Watch your ratings climb.

    8. Not weber but still good read. This was a rousing space opera. Simply written with characters you can root for. I will read the next in the series and I hope the author grows as a writer.

    9. If you like unrelenting tension and battles this is the book for you. The story is set up well from the beginning and builds to a climax. The end though carries a twist. Cannot wait for the follow up.

    10. Each character is specialI really liked this book. the characters are well written and they flow. plenty of action and no stalling out. can't wait for the next. some slight typos nothing to bothersome.

    11. Could not but it down.I love this book and can not wait to dive into the next one.I would recommend this book and the whole series to any who like space opera or gritty hard one on one marine books.

    12. Good story overallSpace opera with truly vile aliens. The prequel portion was a bit weak but things picked up afterwards. The main part appears to have been written quickly with both missing and extra words occasionally. However, this is a good and entertaining read.

    13. Another race is murdering human settlements and kidnapping the children. The legion launches a pursit to rescue the young humans and punish the invaders.

    14. The last stand of the legion.This book hits the ground running. Fast paced from start to finish. With a well defined plot and characters. A good read

    15. This book gets you hooked from the beginning. And never lets go. All of the characters are full of depth and emotions.

    16. This book has excellent characters, excellent story, and is dynamic and interesting throughout. If you are looking for a science fiction novel to read, read this. It is books like this that make my subscription to Kindle Unlimited worthwhile, and I am looking forward to reading the remaining 3 in the omnibus.

    17. I'm not going to explain the story, it is your average invasion story with Pearl Harbor twist. It was also the only semi enjoyable part of this book.Last Stand is riddled with horrible punctuation, poor formatting, misused words, and words being repeated up to 7 times(I counted) in a 3 paragraph area. His complete inability to understand the use of a comma led to much confusion and frustration for me. I seem to of not noted the one that frustrated me the most, but I do have an example:"Dasan was [...]

    18. Bad Writing & Editing Hamstrung Decent SciFi Storyline"Rift, Blood War," Book 1 has a decent SciFi storyline about invading aliens, using hybrid humans to ruthlessly invade human held star systems and space. The writing and editing are so bad, that numerous times I was tempted to give up and not finish.The eBook author uses World War II, Pacific Theater, as the framework to build his book. Unfortunately, he has no talent for narrative flow and his annoying inability (to the point of obnoxiou [...]

    19. Rating 2.5. The book is not bad by any means. Technically speaking it's very detailed and well thought out. But still I only made it about 50% of the way through before I stopped. It's packed with intense action and it is a great military sci-fi book but I just can't get into it.I can't connect with the ever flowing cast of characters and I can't get into the plot. Military sci fi fans will enjoy this book greatly, but it's just not for me.

    20. I thought it was a great book.i didn't say I read it in one sitting but I read it every time I sat down I admit I may have let a few things slide while reading this book lawn work dishes and maybe a few other things got neglected while I was engrossed in the battle for the planet very good you are gonna like it.

    21. It took me a while to get through this book, mainly because there wasn't a whole lot of action until the last half and I found myself skimming through a few of the other parts. This is the first one in the series so I'll likely see how the next one unfolds and whether the characters grow on me a little more. The technical writing wasn't bad but nothing in the story has really grabbed me yet.

    22. Many times I am bored quickly with scifi books. The space based ones seem to be a rehash of another one I have already read, or some movie I have already seen. This book, however, surprised me, with likeable characters who you felt for, who seemed to be there in front of you. This is apparently the first in a series, one which I now plan to read. Well done book by a great author.
