Angles of Attack (Frontlines Book 3) by Marko Kloos (Book 2015)

I'm a bit bummed since I think this was the last book in this magnificent series, but kudos to the author since he sure can write.

So yeah this book builds upon the ending of the 2nd book that I read many months back. Unfortunately don't totally remember all of the details of what happened prior, but the author alluded to enough events that allowed me to put the plot together. The story follows around the main networking grunt as he and his crew find their way back to Earth from the ice planet they were deployed to. The plot gets more interesting and exciting as it moves forward, and although it did build up for an epic ending...it opted for a smoother landing of sorts, but did leave the story open for more books although I doubt more will be made.

By remembering more and more small details of the first 2 books and then combining those memories with what I just read, this truly was a great series. It should be made into a TV-show a la Battlestar. It's unfortunate how nobody has the funds or gumption to make good sci-fi anymore.
