"Like Starship Troopers on crack!" -Goodreads reviewer Over 1,500 pages of nonstop action! Ambushed behind enemy lines and left for dead along with a handful of privates so green they actually respect his authority, Lance Cpl. Lucky Lee Savage has to master his inner demons, manage the ambitions of his foul-mouthed AI, and figure out what is tearing a hole in the fabric of space-time before everything goes tits up. Lucky wouldn’t bet on the universe. One…

Interesting concept, but poorly executed.  It got old by the end of the second book.  Now this guy was not suppose to be great, just lucky, and he wasn't even good.  Most of the characters in the book were self-centered and thought way too much of themselves, it got old really quick.  Sci-fy is obviously stretches the known world of science, but certain things are not messed with.  The fundamental laws of science are fundamental because they work all the time and everywhere, but not to this author.   A good number of science military books have nanobots and such that help the body and repair the body.  Until this series of books I have not run into one that the bots can rebuild a whole leg out of nothing.  Only God has ever created something out of nothing, bots can't.  Being able to repair portions of body parts and such, especially with packs the nanobots get raw materials from is fine, but on a grown man rebuilding 20% of the body out of nothing in an hour is pushing logic.  And that is what is my biggest problem with the books, it doesn't make sense.  Or maybe I just couldn't follow along.  Without getting spoiler-ish a major plot line at the end of the book is so unbelievable that it really made me upset that I kept reading the books.  I almost gave up around the end of the 4th book, but I put so much time in that I wanted to see how the author wraps things up, I shouldn't have.

Lots of language and sexual innuendos so keep that in mind if you do the kindle read out loud.
