Inhaltsangabe

The alien forces known as the Lankies are gathering on the solar system's edge, consolidating their conquest of Mars and setting their sights on Earth. The far-off colony of New Svalbard, cut off from the rest of the galaxy by the Lanky blockade, teeters on the verge of starvation and collapse. The forces of the two Earth alliances have won minor skirmishes but are in danger of losing the war. For battle-weary staff sergeant Andrew Grayson and the ragged forces of the North American Commonwealth, the fight for survival is entering a catastrophic new phase.

Forging an uneasy alliance with their Sino-Russian enemies, the NAC launches a hybrid task force on a long shot: a stealth mission to breach the Lanky blockade and reestablish supply lines with Earth. Plunging into combat against a merciless alien species that outguns, outmaneuvers, and outfights them at every turn, Andrew and his fellow troopers could end up cornered on their home turf, with no way out and no hope for reinforcement. And this time the struggle for humanity's future can end only in either victory or annihilation.

Full throttle ahead!

I'll stop giving Luke Daniels his own section here, he's a damn good voice actor. Period. :D

Andrew Grayson has so far matured from some silly kid into a badass combat grunt. In the third installment it's going a bit sideways for him however. The last book started giving a lot more breathing room to other characters and this book benefits from expanding on that. The stakes are ever growing and it's just too much for any one individual to solve. Cooperation is the name of the game and it is believable characters and tragic heroes that safe the day.

Angles of Attack is basically the second half of Lines of Departure, unlike the jump from Frontlines #1 to #2 and later #3 to #4 Marko Kloos had a story line that just didn't fit in one book. So Frontlines 2&3 can best be enjoyed back to back. The world Kloos started building in Terms of Enlistment is ever expanding and his outlook on humanity is fair but scathing.

The fundamentally positive outlook a character like Andrew Grayson manages through all hardships and cynicissm forced on him is heartwarming.
