Mission Zero

mission_zeroSometime last year I saw these Fourth Fleet Irregulars titles showing up in my Also-Boughts on Amazon. I picked up a sample of Mission Zero and burned through the series in a matter of days.

MacDonald’s stories are – pardon the expression – stellar. Imagine a military skunk-works in space. They get all the cool toys. They invent things that aren’t possible. They’re run by a crazy man who sees duty quite differently from his more staid contemporaries (and commanders). Yet they succeed because they’re odd, because they follow the spirit of the regulations – if not quite the letter – all the time.

If you like good space opera with excellent world building, a modicum of political intrigue, and a fair share of blowing things up, you might consider grabbing a sample of Mission Zero. I found it well worth my time.
