Présentation de l'éditeur

Vicious interstellar conflict with an indestructible alien species. Bloody civil war over the last habitable zones of the cosmos. Political unrest, militaristic police forces, dire threats to the Solar System…

Humanity is on the ropes, and after years of fighting a two-front war with losing odds, so is North American Defense Corps officer Andrew Grayson. He dreams of dropping out of the service one day, alongside his pilot girlfriend, but as warfare consumes entire planets and conditions on Earth deteriorate, he wonders if there will be anywhere left for them to go.

After surviving a disastrous space-borne assault, Grayson is reassigned to a ship bound for a distant colony—and packed with malcontents and troublemakers. His most dangerous battle has just begun.

In this sequel to the bestselling Terms of Enlistment, a weary soldier must fight to prevent the downfall of his species…or bear witness to humanity’s last, fleeting breaths.

Biographie de l'auteur

Marko Kloos is a novelist, freelance writer, and unpaid manservant to two small children. He is a graduate of the Viable Paradise SF/F Writers' Workshop.

Marko writes primarily science fiction and fantasy because he is a huge nerd and has been getting his genre fix at the library ever since he was old enough for his first library card. In the past, he has been a soldier, a bookseller, a freight dock worker, a tech support drone, and a corporate IT administrator.

A former native of Germany, Marko lives in New Hampshire with his wife and two children. Their compound, Castle Frostbite, is patrolled by a roving pack of dachshunds.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Grosse catastrophe 14 novembre 2014
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Autant j'ai été emballé par le premier volet de la série et les nouvelles situées dans le même univers, autant ce second tome m'a profondément ennuyé.

Tout est raté dans ce second volet.
La faute aux promesses non tenues (sur les aliens notamment), à un développement scénaristique totalement dénué d'intérêt et à un ensemble qui manque considérablement de rythme, de justesse, d'action. L'évolution de l'histoire est tirée par les cheveux, pas crédible pour deux sous et le personnage principal devient de plus en plus transparent au fil des pages.

Une très grosse déception.
Je vais bouder.

The long awaited sequel of Terms of enlistment, this is a great military sci-fi novel. It’s very classical, well written, and is depecting the difficult fight of Earth colonial forces against a very powerful challenger. If you like Scalzi’s Old man’s war, Heinlein’s Starship troopers, Ringo’s Posleen war or Haldeman’s Forever war, you’re bound to love this novel.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Continuation of an Exciting and Interesting New Series 18 mai 2014
Par Paul Cassel - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit (De quoi s'agit-il?)
This is book 2 of a new series by Kloos and while you can probably get a good deal out of it without the first book, Terms of Enlistment, you'll likely do better reading that one first.

While technically military scifi, these books delve a bit deeper than just details of battles and their attendant strategies. There is more than one interesting character but the protagonist is, of course, most featured and his POV is dominant. Both volumes are interesting as Earth faces a vastly superior, implacable and fantastically aggressive foe which comes out of nowhere known to throw humanity back on its collective heels time and time again.

Again, in both books, the protagonist develops, the stages he finds himself on vary quite a bit and his interactions with others mature as he himself matures. As with so many of this genre today, the underlying sense is one of pessimism unlike, say the 'humans learn instant tech and dominate' common to the antique scifi of the so called golden age of the '30's, '40's and '50's.

This pessimism is deeper than most. Not only is the Earth severely threatened and humanity facing extinction, but the humans aren't sure that's a bad thing. The Earth itself is vastly overpopulated at over 10x it's current population most of who live in welfare sucking squalor piled into 'projects' and living a Hobbs-like life which is brutal, nasty, poor and short. Many complete it by being solitary.

At several points in the book, humans speculating on their own and their species extinction, say it may not be a bad idea. The implication is that since humans failed to control their own population, they deserve an outside influence to so control it.

Many future oriented books set the future as dystopian but few take it this far. Still, an exciting read with interesting people as speaking characters (NPC's if you will) and a highly sympathetic protagonist. I enjoyed both entries to this series and will surely be on board for any others that Kloos writes.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Marko hits it out of the ballpark....again. 29 janvier 2014
Par Rene A. Barrera - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
This book for those not familiar with the author is a continuation of the storyline in "Terms of Enlistment". Here is the saga of Earth and humanity in the throes of extinction level disasters, both man made and those stemming from First Contact aliens.
This book can stand on it's own, but the reader will benefit from reading "Terms of Enlistment" there are many ideas that rise here that initially were introduced in the first book.
The ideas that flow under the radar are what will make this series of books one of the greats you need to read it and pay attention there are subtleties at work that will become important later on. Not to spoil anything but freedom and liberty are still viable ideas even in the face of tyranny and apocalyptic destruction.
The writing is sharp the characters are deep and one feels pangs of sorrow at the dismal state of the future-what Marko writes is not far removed from what could be. At the end one is left shocked it is really a great ending and wraps up so many different plot lines and resets the chess board so to speak.
Its a great read!!!

Fairly well developed characters and relatively plausible technology. What more do you want in military sci-fi? I found this book series to be one of the better ones I've read in the last year or so.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 If you liked Terms of Depature you'll like this one too 13 février 2014
Par Falldog - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
All of the criticisms that can be levied against the first book (Terms of Enlistment) are just as apparent in Lines of Departure. In short, it's a simplistic action movie style book that doesn't break any genre tropes. It wont go down in the annals of sci-fi legends but it makes for a good beach read.

Did you read Terms of Enlistment? Did you like it? If you answered yes to those two questions then go ahead and pick up Lines of Departure.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 More of the same, with a few additional features 10 novembre 2014
Par JPS - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
The adventures of Andrew Grayson, now a sergeant, continue in this second volume. The story starts almost five years after the end of the previous book. The bitter and loosing war against the Aliens on the one hand and against the Sino-Russian Alliance (SRAs) on the other for the space colonies continues, and Grayson has been involved in it up to the neck.

The situation is getting steadily worse, both in space, as the colonies fall one after the other, and in the “North American Commonwealth” where the “welfare rats” living conditions worsen steadily as their weekly food allowance is steadily cut to save money for the war effort, leading to increasingly bloody riots.

I’ll stop here to avoid spoilers. Suffice is to say that the book contains the same themes as volume one and that our “grunt” hero meets again Master Sergeant Fallon and two disciplinary battalions from the ex-Territorial Army who are sent on exile to a far-away colony as a punishment, and cut off from the rest of humanity.

This book also has the same qualities as book one, and perhaps also the same limitations. It is entertaining, exciting and easy to read. You also need to suspend belief at times, for instance when senior officers (lieutenant colonels no less!) defer to Master Sergeant Fallon who, of course, will let no one “mess around” with her or “her grunts”. You also need to be aware that the story is a rather predictable one, but it’s nevertheless entertaining.

For fans of military science fiction (and that includes myself, of course), the book has some interesting features of various types of drop ships, ground attack craft and an orbital combat ship (OCS, in the jargon) with exceptional stealth capabilities. Also included are some equipment specially designed to fight the near invulnerable dinosaurian aliens, including some short of shotgun. One episode which sees a bit of a civil war is a rather good occasion to see these various craft in action, with some interesting (but rather one-sided) ground fighting added to the mix.

The third volume, which, like this one and the first one, seems to have been developed from e-books, should be available in April 2015. Four stars.
