Ause the base concept is a very intriguing one The idea to have All Wars Fought By wars fought by groups is a fantastic one It leaves plenty of space for backroom backstabbing and delving into the fallibility of mercenaries as whole This is the perfect ground work for great story elements in large scale conflicts but it isn t used to its full extent Instead in *This Setting The Resource They Are Fighting Over Is Uite *setting the esource they
fighting over is uite as something that would start a corporate war There are absolutely zero stakes in this conflict immediately diffusing any sense of tension and concern for the characters It is Health and Wellbeing in Childhood revealed later the significance of theesource but it again bears no Child Support, for the Non-Custodial Parent, Alabama Edition (Series 1, for the Non-Custodial Parent) relation to any stakes thrown at the characters There are some interesting attempts at blending modern themes throughout veganism and a multitude of sexual identities being the norm which is veryefreshing to ead but this does not save the plotNow lets talk about said characters Cutter s group is a small but elite band of mercenaries that feel very much like your classic mismatched family in many Sci FiFantasy novels They truly feel like developed characters that fans have no doubt come to love and there in lies the problem There is next to nothing in terms of character description I spent the whole novel with no idea who anyone looked like I only knew the character Gunny might be Scottish due to the way her dialogue was written Now these might have been seen to in the previous books but as a new eader who picked this up on the fly it translates very poorly This is only made worse by the fact one of the main.
