    Great fun!

    Luke is a great storyteller and Jared (the protagonist) is a wonderfully powerful warrior in a sci-fi fantasy masterpiece. Lots of action and violence, with some interesting twists. I can recommend it heartily!

    Original Take on Post-Apocalyptic World

    I really enjoy books that develop and build out an imaginative, believable world view. But the post-apocalyptic story has been done so many times, it's hard to find a really fresh take at this genre. However, Mr. Mitchell has developed a really believable world, requiring only the insertion of baddies and their minions to initiate this world. He also balances the reality of our world being mostly wiped out with pockets of optimism and hope for an improved future. This optimism is usually lacking from post-apocalyptic stories. The author has done a really nice job developing his characters. The protagonist characters are likeable and built out by the story, not just through narrative description. This keeps the story moving and doesn't disrupt enjoyment of the story. And the baddies are really, really bad. They are physically superior (by a lot) and basically consider humans as bugs to be squashed. A lot of the reviews point to the snappy, snarky dialogue employed by Jarrett (the male good guy). I was almost put off by this because some authors overdue this kind of dialogue ... so much so that it keeps snapping me out of the "willing suspension of disbelief" so critical to enjoying any speculative fiction. But Mr. Mitchell avoids this trap and uses snark when appropriate and "normal" human discourse when appropriate. The female good "guy" is very strong and independent, but she has a vulnerable side that makes her approachable and not just a superhero guy in a skirt. I very much enjoyed this story and have already started in on the sequel. I strongly recommend Red Gambit by Luke Mitchell.

    A great series

    The lead character is great along with his exosuit. I have read 3 of the books in this series and they have all been great. A wonderful writer with a plot in mind that does not leave you wondering what the heck is going on. Fast pace and the supporting characters are fun and help to keep Jarek under control.
