Review

Falkner supplies a tight story that features a strong plot and believable characters. . . . [He] effectively employs the tropes of both survival and war stories to great effect. While an entirely satisfying read on its own, readers can only hope there is a second instalment in the works. Kirkus Reviews As much adventure thriller, on the order of Alistair MacLean, as futuristic speculative fiction, Recon Team Angel 1: Assault has the feel of an early Heinlein work. Sympathetic characters, snappy dialogue, and quickly paced action make it hard to put down. School Library Journal
