LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE this book! I could almost write that word again and again for the entire review and be quite satisfied, though I am sure that readers would find it a little difficult to comprehend. That being said, Falcone Strike if anything exceeds The Oncoming Storm with the level of action and drama that one would expect in any great space tale. Kat Falcone is a riveting heroine whose empathy and overall humanity makes her easy to relate to. Kat is not a cold Captain, she is one that cares about her crew and mourns when those under her command are lost.
In Falcone Strike, Kat is sent on a dangerous mission behind enemy lines to engage in guerrilla warfare style attacks. With limited resources and an aging fleet, she makes the best use of a bad situation. However, with the enemy growing more suspicious, and potential leaks aboard Lightning it will take all that Kat has to see her crew safely home or die trying.
If you enjoy sci-fi and adventure, this is the book for you. This has some of the great elements of sci-fi past along with a slightly different story that keeps me engaged. As a result I am giving this book 5/5 superdreadnaughts for a great story that I found impossible to put down.
I received this book for free in exchange for my honest review.
