Tuesday Book Review on Wednesday

 Four-star review of Earth Lost (Earth Rise Book 2) by Daniel Arenson


I don’t often read space operas for the same reason I gave this four rather than five stars: how grotesque the aliens usually are and how many humans are killed in battles with them. On the other hand, Marco Emery, the reluctant soldier, is called Poet by his comrades in arms and there is a poetic element to the writing. The philosophical thoughts Marco has after each battle, after each death are unusual. This is only the second novel in a long series. I can only imagine where it goes from here. How much can the survivors take in their fight against the scum? I’ll need a while to recover before I read book three.
