A Soldier's Duty

Flat out entertaining something you will just need to finish

OP Mary Sue to the Max!

While the overall world creation is interesting and the action scenes passable, this book was largely a disappointment. The main character is perhaps THE most overpowered Mary Sue in science fiction. At every potentially suspenseful moment, she reveals yet another unstoppable superpower.

As a result, there is near zero character development of any other character… friend or foe. All of them are just cardboard cutouts for the protagonist to either save or knock down.

In the end, what could/should have been a truly interesting premise with significant action becomes almost boring. Only good for a long boring plane flight.

Amazing

The author was consummately successful creating a selfless character diligently prepared for masterstrokes of behavior.
Loved it.
