This one is worth the read if you enjoy sci-fi military action with a dash of faith and sprinkle of humor. While it wasn’t my favorite, it still makes for a good book if your TBR pile is shrinking too rapidly.
Number 3: Knox's Irregulars, by J. Wesley Bush
Number 2: Firebird, by Kathy TyersFirst off, how have I not gotten around to book two yet? This is a serious problem.
Secondly, this is a good sci-fi novel with some epic space battles and balanced with good character development. The worldbuilding is excellent, but it's number two for being a little difficult to get into.
Number 1: A Star Curiously Singing, by Kerry NietzThe wit and character voice in this story catapulted it into first place, even though it isn't as heavy on the action as the above books. Sandfly's sense of humor is spot on. The book couples great world-building with this for a nice read.
-I'd like to revisit this series. The political intrigue at the end was interesting, but it needed just a little more to get it into the top three.
Talon's Test and the Shield of Faith, by Nicholas Downing
-This was my first book review, so of course it should be mentioned!
