Chains of Command (Frontlines)

The assault on Earth was thwarted by the destruction of the aliens’ seed ship, but with Mars still under Lanky control, survivors work frantically to rebuild fighting capacity and shore up planetary defenses. Platoon sergeant Andrew Grayson must crash-course train new volunteers—all while dulling his searing memories of battle with alcohol and meds.

Knowing Earth’s uneasy respite won’t last, the North American Commonwealth and its Sino-Russian allies hurtle toward two dangerous options: hit the Lanky forces on Mars or go after deserters who stole a fleet of invaluable warships critical to winning the war. Assigned to a small special ops recon mission to scout out the renegades’ stronghold on a distant moon, Grayson and his wife, dropship pilot Halley, again find themselves headed for the crucible of combat—and a shattering new campaign in the war for humanity’s future.

  1. I keep reading this series, but I’m not really sure why This is the 4th book in the Frontlines series. Earth has been successfully defended against incursion in book 3, and our stalwart heroes are out to go and do more heroic things. Greyson starts the book as a sergeant, gets recruited into some shenanigans, gets a team together comprised of some old characters and some new ones, gets a promotion, and goes off gallivanting around the galaxy. 

  2. however I really enjoyed it. The next quarter of the story is … Chains of Command starts about one year after Angles of Attack. Right of the bat I wanted to know what Grayson and Halley and the rest said about joining the “rebels”. There was no satisfactory answer given about how they came to their decisions. 

  3. THE AUTHOR LEFT ROOM FOR ANOTHER BOOK IN THIS SERIES, BUT EVEN IF THIS IS THE LAST EDITION …. WELL DONE MARCO KLOOS !!!! I pre-ordered this book almost a year ago after finishing the first three books in the series and received my Kindle version last night just after midnight. It was definitely worth the wait. Kloos has delivered once again and “Command” is really top-notch scifi … picking up right where the author left us, with Andrew & Halley in Detroit (Angles of Attack) concluding a battle against the “lankies.” The story (main plot) continues on as well as the non-stop action & adventure…
