Virtues of War Virtues of War #1Would have given this book 15 stars for the great military tactics which were outlined with great military tactics which were outlined with degree of skill Sadly for me this was the books only edeeming uality This is the first book in the Virtues of War series by Bennett R Coles The cover says Top Notch Military Science Fiction and it is true This is one of the best Military Science Fiction books I have ead in a while In this one Lieutenant Katji Emmes is assigned to the fast attack spacecraft Rapier She along with Commander Thomas Kane the ships Captain and IntelligenceNavigation Officer Lieutenant Charity Breeze Brisebois are sent on a mission to one of Terra s colonies to investigate the possibility of ebel instigators What happens there will be the beginning of a war between Terra and her colonies The Terran forces are soon ambushed and they find themselves cut off from home and at a distinct disadvantage in ships and weapons It will take the determination the heroism and the sacrifice of many people such as a young pilot named Sublieutenant Jack Mallory if they are to win the day This book has a great cast of characters and much space war as well as ground war action It is told from several viewpoints including some of the not so noble characters I ecommend this book to all fans of Military Science Fiction Mechanically this was a well written book unfortunately the characters were all unsympathetic and objectionable The first character we meet is a war criminal the intelligence officer is a conniving self centered ank climbing sociopath The ship s captain is a weak willed man who sleeps with two of his subordinates while engaged to his commanding officer s daughter The plot is one of the trope plots of military sci fi the colonys are ebelling against earth ule This tale is from the earth perspective and shows the excesses of the imperial against the colonial I give this one star as I can not give less Audience Those who love both military tacticscontent and heavy science fictionSummed up in one word MultiplexAuthor Bio Bennett R Coles is a Canadian author who spent 15 years in the Royal Canadian Navy After obtaining a wealth of experience in the Navy he etired in 2005 and established the publishing company Promontory Press which is dedicated to helping talented new authors get an audienceFirst Impression Virtues Of War Is An Intense War Ridden Political is an intense war idden political through deep space and beyond Having crafted a massive setting for this story and created uite a few characters to populate it BRC had his work cut out for him Across almost 500 pages BRC has managed to combine ealistic military politics language and behaviour with deep space physics and theories I am going to be completely honest and say that this is a ather heavy ead but by the end I was ultimately impressed with the story and what the trilogy might have in storeSummary of the StoryDeep space gun smuggling between two hostile nations is unacceptable Lieutenant Commander Thomas Kane Lieutenant Katja Emmes and the other StoryDeep space gun smuggling between two hostile nations is unacceptable Lieutenant Commander Thomas Kane Lieutenant Katja Emmes and the other of the fast attack craft Rapier are on a mission to smoke out the leader of this gun smuggling operation and stop the terrorists getting their weapons Upon arrival on their planet Katja makes some difficult on the spot decisions that end up initiating a wide scale war Upon eturning home events escalate all around them and the politicsbureaucratic pressure threatens to uin them. F ebellion could escalate apidly and lead to all out war When combat does erupt its ferocity stuns the Terran forces and pushes them to their limits It tests the abilities of Lieutenant Emmes as I like a good adventure sci fi story with action now and then and Coles pretty much delivers that with Virtues of War the first in a planned trilogy For being
A Dense Book Though I 
dense book though I have expected a bit character development than what is present After a while the battle seuences sort of start to bleed into one another and there is not always a clear sense of difference between planets and ships other than names being mentioned The story is much about the action than world or character building Coles writes like he understands the technical aspects and those parts are much better fleshed out and expanded on than the characters who feel sort of vaguely familiar and flawed but never do anything truly surprising The series has great potential for sci fi action fans particularly if it gets bigger on the science fiction aspects as it goes along Virtues itself feels as much military thriller as sci fiNote ARC eceived via Vine in exchange for eview I m going to start by saying that I didn t buy this book myself but was instead gifted it by a friend who wasn t too impressed with it to begin with I decided to go into it with an open mind and make my own observations while working my way through it In terms of casual eading and taking up time spent on busesetc the book serves its purpose it s somewhat engaging the military tactics are as sound as they could be within the plots standards and it does have a small political aspect which I personally find makes any good military based sci fiaction book I only have 3 major issues with the book 1 The CharactersHonestly the only one I was bothered to be interested in was Katja and this was only because she was the most fleshed out of the lot Which is saying something because just about the only thing we learn about her is the vague outline of about her is the vague outline of elationship with her father the other characters were shallow Breeze is your typical conniving sociopathic intelligence officer Mallory is the cliche greenhorn and Thomas is the definition of pathetic and weak willed Not capable socially and honestly even professionally One thing that bothered me specifically was how much his character was played up which brings me to my next point 2 The RomanceThomas was up played the entire time even going so far as to have affairs with 2 of his subordinates the omance was shallow As I mentioned before with the level of craftsmanship that went into Katja s character and a bit of ueer baiting courtesy of breeze seeing the elationship that developed between her and Thomas was almost a step down from what it could have been if she d actually been ueer as the emotional aspects were uite lackluster The hypersexualization of the female characters in the novel was boring and frankly took away from the plot which tactically was enjoyable otherwise 3 PoliticsThe book opens with a strike scene that barely covers the backstory essentials it is therefore not easy to follow without eading between the lines almost constantly To be uite frank eading through the lines almost constantly To be uite frank eading through first couple of chapters the first time it almost felt like i should be taking notes with how thrown in the world building aspects seemed to be Overall you can easily understand the whole imperial vibe the novel gives off but there is not much explanation otherwise which i feel takes away from the enjoyment i could see people finding in this book Overall I think Lieutenant Katja Emmes is assigned to the fast attack craft  Rapier joining a mission to investigate weapons smuggling activity between the Terran colonies of Sirius and Centauria If true this act Sublieutenant Jack Mallory is a young up and coming pilot he manages to make a few discoveries that may change the tide of this interplanetary warThe Virtues Of War is an action packed detailed and science filled jaunt through deep space and beyond Can the suad keep the peace save their own and keep earth from certain oblivion Does everyone s self interests and politics come before the welfare of nations Come to the front line of #one of the most extraordinary wars set in the distant future and experience it for yourselfReviewPlot I was dumbfounded when I #of the most extraordinary wars set in the distant future and experience it for yourselfReviewPlot I was dumbfounded when I ealised the scale of this story BRC has a lot to say here and I was by the end impressed with the first instalment of his military space epic In terms of overall plot TVOW is pretty weak there seems to be less of an outlined arcing story and of a stumbling development of events What I mean by this is that though the EF expeditionary force are out to end the gun smuggling operation once that element of the story comes into play everything after seems like a tumbling decline instead of a play by play story I was very glad to have stuck with it as by the last 100 pages I felt that this story blossomed into something awesome Once the characters were established and started complimentingaggravating each other and the science behind the story became clearer the plot came into its own Despite the lack of clear motives for some of the events the eader is treated to a plot filled with great science interesting military tactics and great set piecesWriting Style BRC went for a sciencemilitary heavy tone to the first instalment of this trilogy There is dense and technical language for both physics and Navy style military procedure I found it difficult to appreciate this type of writing and language for the first half of this book In the second act though I felt that as BRC had got into a decent hythm with his characters and the events surround them so the language eased up and became informal and elaxed This allowed me to understand events clearer and focus on story easier Also BRC added a glossary at the beginning to assist in the eader s understanding of the tough parts of the textdialogueSetting The eader is cast into deep space in TVOW There are many different locations due to the large uantity of both planets and ships Luckily the story is mostly set on several different space ships so it is not overly confusing The space settings in this story are very impressive and add tone to events but don t outright define them I felt this was of a character driven story the setting seemed to just amaze and excite the science fiction nerd that is myself Big planets complex space ships and hostile planets Everything you could want in a space war book I loved the anti gravity aspect it brought a little additional feeling of amusementCharacters Wowwhere to begin A lot of these characters are intense morally ambiguous self ighteous unbearable and just down ight evil THERE ARE NO WHOLLY GOOD OR are no wholly good or people in this book Every character has both a pleasantupstanding side and a backstabbing nasty side with 2 exceptionsBreeze is all evil not eally a spoiler and Jack is all good doing the ight thing and serving others over himself The two characters in the 5050 zone are Katja and Thomas Both act honourably and also manage to be disgusting human beings at times as well I do feel that eve. Ell along with Sublieutenant Jack Mallory and Lieutenant Commander Thomas Kane commanding officer of the  Rapier But failure is not acceptable They must defeat the enemy by whatever means necessary.
