    Simply inhaled this. Be warned: it's the first in a series, and ends on the sort of cliffhanger that causes readers to breathe brimstone and pitchforks. If you can't stand that sort of ending, then buy the book and stash it underneath that copy of Proust you've always meant to read,...

    Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for providing me with a copy of this in exchange for my open and honest review. I am not one to normally read military science fiction. It is an acquired taste. Often when you read a dense military science fiction it requires a graph, charts...

    As much as I think the finale of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine might be one of the best TV finales ever, I do wish we had seen (canonically, on screen) what the aftermath of the Dominion War brought. It?s one thing to tell a war story?and DS9 told it well?and another to talk about a...

    Quite an unexpected hit for me as I started but never progressed in the author's debut six-volume+ series Frontlines; an Amazon prime book of the month in July 2019, I got a sample in my email and the first page intrigued me, so I started reading and couldn't put the book down until th...

    Thanks to Netgalley for providing a copy of this book for review. I was interested to read this book- all I knew about Marko Kloos was that he got caught up in the Sad Puppies Hugo kerfuffle against his will a few years ago and acquitted himself honorably. This was th start of a new...

    This is a good author. He writes interesting books although I haven?t read one of his books for quite some time. I?ve now stumbled on this series and it looks to be very, very good. There are three main characters, each with their own thread which haven?t merged together yet. ...

    I have really enjoyed Marko Kloos's Terms of Enlistment series. This one? Not so much, so far. It feels technically more accomplished (more on that later) but the biggest problem is that at the end of the first book I still have no idea what the point is. There are four viewpoint prota...

    Solid opening on two counts. The beginning of the novel was pretty strong with the whole "what are we going to do after being in a PoW" vibe going on, full of space opera MilSF goodness between two human populations. The other solid opening was for the expectation of a full series. ...

    4 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum https://bibliosanctum.com/2019/08/15/... After how badly I crashed and burned with the last military sci-fi novel I picked up, I was a little nervous about starting Aftershocks. However, my worries were allayed as soon as I began reading the first c...

    Marko Kloos starts a new series with Aftershock, set 5 years after a war in a six-planet solar system where all the planet have been colonized, but only one is really Earthlike, Gretia, were Earth seed crops will grow and colonists don't have to live in floating arcologies on a sea, or...

    This is the start of a new series by Kloos, set in the aftermath of an interplanetary war. There are several major points of view - that sometimes bothers me, but in this book it was quite well done - I was interested in each of them, and they enhanced each other nicely. Our main ch...

    7/10: Good solid read, something to get your teeth into. They are not entitled to pride yet. This new series is definitely different from Frontlines. But it drew me in from the start, despite those differences. This time we get multiple points of view, which makes the book a l...

    Beginning of a many books? crossover military science fiction (MIL-SF)/conspiracy thriller/ space opera modeled on The Expanse . I can't help but to compare and contrast this story to The Expanse. That?s obviously what the author was imitating here. Imitation is the sincerest f...

    Executive Summary: I've enjoyed Mr. Kloos Frontline books, but they were starting to drag a bit. So I was excited to check out a new series from him. It did not disappoint. In fact I think I like it better so far. My only real gripe is I've left with so many questions. Audiobook: Lu...

    I have read a few of Kloos? books. This is a new series so I decided to start it and see if it is worth following. I have found Kloos to be an excellent writer with a creative imagination. The book is well written. There are four different main characters and the story switches ba...

    As a long-time fan of Marko Kloos' Frontlines series, I was excited to get ahold of his new series. There are some marked differences from Frontlines with this book, chiefly that this book is in 3rd person and told from the points of view of several different characters. Overall, this ...

    I was fortunate to receive an ARC of this via NetGalley, and was excited to dig in. The premise appealed to me- it has been years since the aftermath of a war that spanned solar systems, in which an alliance of planets finally succeeded in overtaking the miltaristic society of Gretia. ...

    It's a 3.5, rounded up. Finally a Sci-fi that didn't leave me feeling stupid. A war criminal, Aden, has spent the last 5 years imprisoned on Rhodia. One year longer than the war went for. The time has finally come, he is out, it's time to head home, to his planet Gretia. Deciding...

    This felt like the Frontlines Series all over again. I get that it is military sci-fi but after waiting so long for this new book, to get something that felt like a rehash didn't work for me. The MC is older than Grayson, harder-edged and more blunted by life. But he has the same feel ...

    Aftershocks is at times a very fun read. A lot of the time, though, it just feels like a prologue. Right as things started to get going with the plot and I had the ?here we go!? feeling starting to happen, the book ended. I get things needing to be a series more and more these days...

    Aftershocks is a very solid first book in a new science fiction series that revolves around six planets striving for stability after a war has ended. The story is told through multiple points of view ? each showing a different area of how order is maintained within the solar system a...

    Uhm, is that all? I swear it feels like a prologue. A very long prologue but where is act 2? Act 3? I don?t know if I feel frustrated but I am certainly a bit disappointed. This is not a TV show. It is a book. Something should happen to seriously push the plot forward and noth...

    Space opera! I love a solid space opera. (Not to be confused with space fantasy, where people have mystical powers and laser swords, and there are space dragons and the like) Marko Kloos writes plausible, believable space opera with a military bent. So, this was my free Kindle book ...

    After 5 years as a POW, Aden tries to come to terms with reality and forge a life for himself in a system that disdains his people as warmongers. But when a Palladian security force is wiped out and an advanced warship stolen, it's clear that a time of dearly bought peace is about to e...
