Counterstrike Book CoverThe time has finally come for humanity to make a last stand against the Phage and they plan to do it in an all or nothing attack that puts everything on the line. This is what Senior Captain Jackson Wolfe has wanted for a while now and the renegade captain is finally going to get his way, so why is he having second thoughts about the plan? It is a dream come true to have a powerful ally in this fight against the Phage but Wolfe knows all too well that if something is too good to be true then it probably is.

Joshua Dalzelle continues to remain formulaic and he once again proves why that is the right thing for him to do. He finishes off his solid sci-fi trilogy in fine fashion by delivering a story with just enough plot twists and doubts to keep you interested all along the way. His characters remain true to themselves and by the time this one is all said and done you definitely care about who makes it through in one piece. Interesting decisions are made along the way by all the main characters and you can't help but hope that Wolfe's gut doesn't lead him astray this time because the stakes are way too high. The storyline wraps up nicely so if you have already read the first two books in this series then do not hesitate to finish it.

Once again for audiobook fans Mark Boyett delivers an excellent performance that only make the experience better so listening over reading is a good choice here.
