decent read

The book itself is okay and would've likely gotten four stars but there are two issues. First, the books are critically short and second and more importantly. Jack Bowman is a TERRIBLE commander and shouldn't be in charge of tactics, ever.

Beware, spoilers ahead. At one point a "massive" enemy army is heading towards the Free Oasis. Jack and his followers know this. They're even tracking them using the drones. They could take this army out, quite easily so. He decides not to, to try and save the life's of these raiders and try to recruit them.

He proceeds to completely underutilize the tech and weapons available to him. Allowing this army to attack the Free Oasis, is completely caught off guards by their infiltrators and pays a staggering amount of lives for his plan. Which sees the drones take them out by putting them to sleep, allowing them to spare most of the enemy.

During this fight, several of the named characters including Aristine survive SOLELY because of plot armor. He's so obsessed with trying to spare these people and attempt to recruit them. People he can't logically trust nor should he at any point in the near future. He bleeds his own forces white, risks complete annihilation and exposes several of his girls to danger they needn't be in while also cockily underestimating how much of a risk this army poses.

The number given at the start for Free Oasis population is about 2000. In this single fight, he manages to get 83 of his own combatants killed. That's almost 5% of his overall population and likely a HUGE part of his fighting forces. Nobody calls him out on it, everyone treats this as a victory.

The kicker? They also let the enemy combatants leave. Even though they still outnumber them quite badly. Then they are happy when some of them return to join them and immediately allow them to do so. Easiest to infiltrate group ever.

Jack is a terrible commander, the needless loss of life of his own troops is staggering and his priorities seem to be completely messed up when it comes to preserving life. It would be incredibly easy for spies or an entire fifth column to infiltrate his group and wreak havoc or take it over entirely and the way he's spending his own troops lives he should both quickly run out of them and have some serious moral issues before long.

Wish the complete series was available!

Love the series , great overall writing.
And awesome character's in that you belive in there struggles, worries and believe in what they should do as a new society. It's a awesome story line and a refreshing added adult content. That I have not seen in sci-fi books in a long time.

Just wish that audible had the complete series as I'm left wondering what happens next and can't wait for it in audible form.

Fantastic!

Pierce keeps the action and plot moving forward with intense precision. Yes, Jack still goes out and kills crazy foes and has beautiful women fawning over him, but each part of the story still keeps a unique feel and isn't tiring. It's exciting to see the world changing a tiny bit with each new area conquered. This is a fantastic series that has the potential to go on forever with offshoot tales.

blonde hair with blue eyes & marine

pretty much every story like these always have a blonde hair with blue eyes girl with elf features. it's almost like no other race exist in the world. I need latino, asian or black heck even native american. the hood part of this book is the story is a bit more important than how many women he bed. i can't tell you how many times I'm tried of hearing about marines in most stories that it became a punch line.

Too repetitive

I didn't want to give up on the first book, sometimes practice improves. After working through the three I started the fourth just because I had invested so much time. The series is ridiculously repetitive and therefore it becomes boring. Part of me is convinced the author agrees with me due to the random sex scenes, which in themselves become repetitive and therefore boring.

Fantastic

This has been one of the best wasteland series I've come across. I've loved the writing, the narration, and will be sad once I've listened to the last one.
