Book #46–Rebellion

51CcdNmUIlL._SL500_PIsitb-sticker-arrow-big,TopRight,35,-73_OU01_SS100_I’ve gotten caught up in the Star Force series. It’s easy writing and reading, not too in depth, but it does present a really interesting look at the future when aliens have invaded.

In Rebellion, Kyle Riggs and the Star Force marines have just managed to escape the Worm colony in the Macro’s ship, only to learn they are headed to another battle, not Earth. They’re upset, but Riggs knows that reasoning and pleading with the Macro machines won’t work. He buckles down, prepares his marines and then learns a few things.

First he finds that a new species, the Centaurs, are in orbital habitats above planets where the Macros are mining the minerals. He realizes that the Centaurs negotiated a peace, and the Macros respect that, but they found a loophole by using the humans to attack the Centaurs.

What follows is an interesting look at inter-species diplomacy, during a war. Riggs manages to get out, and turn the tables, attacking the Macro ships. It’s a rebellion, one that will force Earth back into war.
