Angles of Attack, by Marko Kloos

Angles of Attack, by Marko Kloos. Science Fiction. Paperback, 338 pages. Third in the Frontlines series. Borrowed.

Angles of Attack picked up right where Lines of Departure ended, give or take a week. With the joint refugee/task force facing slow starvation or an attempt to go back to save Earth, the attempt has to be made.

I can't do a plot summary without giving away the two previous books. Suffice to say, it's all action, there are maybe five named characters who matter to the humananity perspective inside of a military sci fi, and the action comes in massive bursts. I found it a quick read, and easy read, and a great roller coaster ride. I still prefer Lines of Departure, but this one definitely had its moments.

I recommend the series to fans of David Weber's action but not the droning politics or pages of sciencebabble.
