    One thought on “Hard Drop (Tyco Hale #1)”

    1. I give this book two star rating. It is the type of Sci-Fi I enjoy; military team goes into impossible situation and pulls it off. The premise of drop troopers is good, the writing is great, but it lacks that spark to make it an exceptional work. I found the central character flat. The supporting characters have more life and personality then Tyco. The scientist they find halfway through the book has more depth and breadth then Tyco. I assume we are supposed to view him as a detached, tired, lea [...]

    2. This book is like an action movie. If you don't pay to much attention to the details, it can be a lot of fun. Hard Drop follows a future military team, and their ill-fated "orbital insertion" mission gone wrong. The team remnants link up at the rally point, and move on to the objective. Along the way, it's a fun ride for the reader, but the devil is in the details. Poor grammar and punctuation at times mar the experience. It's not a HUGE flaw, but there were several points where a missing comma, [...]

    3. 3.5/5 stars rounded up.A fun action/adventure story involving a ragtag group of troopers, unfortunately marred by some grammar and spelling issues. The first few chapters are excellently written, and for a self-published title, greatly impressed me. However the rest of the book could've been improved by another draft or two. It gave me the impression that the beginning was professionally edited, whereas the rest was not.That said, it's an easy read. I loved the lead character, Tyco, and would ea [...]

    4. I really enjoyed this book. The military action is believable, the sci-fi and tech is within the realm of reason. The guts of this book are the hard questions that pop up for Hale. Is it worth it? Does our sacrifice make anything better?I look forward to the next book in the series. The book starts with a glimpse into Hale's past but doesn't really let you know how he got to where he was.

    5. Good read.Good read.was a good book, I wouldn't mind reading more about Mr. Hale and his adventures. it's always interesting to read different authors views on the future of mankind.

    6. The version on Kindle Unlimited has some really terrible editing issues (grammar, typos, frequently repeated words, confusing or brain-dead descriptions of action scenes). The writing is otherwise passable but, ultimately, not very enjoyable. Characters are cardboard cut outs while their actions and motivations are a bit bizarre. If some of the above were addressed it would be an enjoyable, light read. It's obvious the story began as a screenplay and would have worked better as a dumb action mov [...]

    7. I have read many reviewers comparing the book to a video game and it seems like an accurate description. Could have been a mission in one of the Halo games! Not bad though but not much in the way of character development. You also have no idea of the situation outside this little planet. And finally, some editing problem and some confusion when it comes to vehicle - going from truck to APC to jeep in one page. The main character is likable enough though even if we don't know much about him.

    8. MehHave a hard time with military science fiction that mixes up ranks and can't get them straight. To make it even worse, the author committed the cardinal sin, IMHO, of having the main character who is an NCO, constantly called Cap or Captain by his troops. No real NCO that I've known would tolerate that for even a nanosecond. Don't waste your time

    9. Dark and intensePretty intense action with a dark edge. The characters were a bit stereotypical. Had some trouble following the story line at times and too many of the good guys die.

    10. Solid, character-driven shoot-em-up science fiction, reads like the original Starship Troopers with some Halo thrown in. Really solid self-published outing.

    11. I really enjoyed this book, he's a great new author. I'm looking forward to reading the next book in the series when he finishes it!
