REVIEW Planetside

A seasoned military officer uncovers a deadly conspiracy on a distant war torn planetWar heroes aren't usually called out of semi retirement and sent to the far reaches of the galaxy for a routine investigation So when Colonel Carl Butler answers the call from an old and powerful friend he knows it's something big and he's not being t. 455 stars Planetside was a very impressive military sci fi debutI m actually surprised that so few people I know close to zero are talking about Planetside this year Seriously Harper Voyager and reviewers really should ve advertised this book it s a fantastic debut and if it weren t for my friend Niki Hawkes I wouldn t have heard about this gem at all The plot in Planetside revolves around Colonel Butler a war hero in semi retirement as he received a mission from an old and powerful friend to go back to a war zone in order to find a high councilor s son who went MIA Although Planetside is labeled as a military sci fi the execution of the storyline was mystery oriented think of it as a mystery detective story in a sci fi novel The storytelling involved a lot of fast paced investigation and Intel gathering than action seuences they never fail to keep me guessing and intrigued It s not a long book it took me roughly four hours to read and I was thoroughly entertained However I did have a minor issue with the ending Don t get me wrong it was great thought provoking and uite powerful but at the same time I also found it to be a bit anti climactic because after all the incredible momentum building towards the moment it ended a bit too fast for my liking I wish there was one or two chapter to explore the aftermath to make the lasting impression of the ending even strongerThe characters were great The narration didn t actually explore Butler s characterizations as in depth as most books I usually read but his characterizations were well conveyed throughout his dialogues and actions this makes Mammay an efficient storyteller that tells an effective and fast paced story without neglecting the personality and motivations of the characters Butler for example was utterly a no bullshit type of character he and all the side characters behaved like true soldiers and it was really obvious that Mammay knows what he s talking about here Military structure actions weaponry and attitudes I ve heard that the author has served as a solder and the knowledge he gained from it was crystal clear evident in every aspect of this bookMammay s prose was simple sharp and highly accessible There are no super hard sci fi jargons here I envision that as long that you re not a stranger to the genre you will be able to enjoy and understand everything in this book There were only one action seuences near the end of the book but it was superbly tension packed As I said before the mystery detective element of the book was dominant but whether it s the mystery or the actions everything was than enough to keep me fully engaged with the novel Planetside was crafted as if the main purpose of it was to keep the readers hooked and it did its job splendidly Immersive fast paced smartly written and imbued with every element of a wonderful page turner Planetside is a sci fi debut you don t want to miss I totally recommend this book to everyone who s looking for a great mystery detective story in a military sci fi environmentYou can buy the book with free shipping by clicking this link You can find this and the rest of my reviews at Novel Notions

Planetside

Old the whole story A high councilor's son has gone MIA out of Cappa Base the space station orbiting a battle ravaged planet The young lieutenant had been wounded and evacuated but there's no record of him having ever arrived at hospital commandThe colonel uickly finds Cappa Base to be a labyrinth of dead ends and sabotage the hospita. If you re into stuff like this you can read the full reviewSticky Patch Planetside by Michael MammayOnce upon a long ago writers who wanted to try something different would put books out under an alternate name to distinguish them Fred Bloggs writer of sundry detective novels would flirt with being Annette Wilkins purveyor of steamy romances Trouble was that if Ms Wilkins didn t sell as well as Mr Bloggs some bright spark in marketing would then decide that the books should be republished with the moniker Fred Bloggs writing as Annette Wilkins which made the whole point rather moot Most authors thus gave up on the split personality literature and chose to put everything out under the same name sometimes disappointing those who didn t expect their detectives to start bedding nubile females whilst the crimes were left unsolved I can understand the feeling of disappointment with a writer when a new book by a new writer arrives and you dive eagerly in only to find not much But abandoning that author altogether

    455 stars Planetside was a very impressive military sci fi debutI’m actually surprised that so few people I know close to zero are talking about Planetside this year Seriously Harper Voyager and reviewers really should’ve advertised this book it’s a fantastic debut and if it weren’t for my friend Niki Hawkes I wouldn’t have heard about this gem at all The plot in Planetside revolves around Colonel Butler a war hero in semi retire

    Planetside is one of the best books I’ve read this yearEverything about it hit the spot It’s about a semi retired Colonel who gets recruited to investigate circumstances surrounding a missing lieutenant Right off the bat I loved the main character He had a very no bullshit approach to things and his dry humor cracked me up constantly In some ways he reminded me a bit of both Avasarala Expanse – she’s t

    I don't hand out many five star ratings but I do in this case because the voice in this novel is fantastic Mammay has a way of easing you into Butler's POV and making you feel like you like him know the military inside and out and

    Mammay's PLANETSIDE is military sci fi through and through but don't let the genre tag fool you While it wears its military raiment for all to see at its heart PLANETSIDE is a mystery a wild ride of one What begins as a routine if a tad unorthodox search for a missing soldier in an alien warzone soon goes utterly off the rails A slow burn start uickly builds as paranoia ramps up some genuinely compelling twists appear and lets no

    Military science fiction is not often on my list of reading material but this one strikes just the right levels Not too heavy on the science fiction elements and emphasis on the human side of the military The military setting and characters

    I have only ever given one other book that I have finished one star this is now the second Complete waste of time and the biggest what the actual fuck? and really?? ending ever It barely ualifies as science fiction and while it had the makings for a good mystery in the beginning chapters it all fell to shit by the end I'm disappointed I spent money on this and if this were an actual book and not something on my Kindle I would be
