Joshua’s Walls: Sequel to Mike’s War [Kindle Edition]
Saxon Andrew (Author)
From the International Bestselling Author, Saxon Andrew, comes Joshua’s Walls, the Sequel to Mike’s War. Sparta has overthrown the corrupt government on Earth and replaced it with leaders intent on bringing Earth up to the technological level of the Alliance. The Alliance Engineers are installing machines that provide free food and clothing for all of Earth’s Citizens. However, they are being attacked by rebels claiming that Sparta is intent on conquering and ruling Earth. The rebellion is spreading and Jesse is forced to fight the rebels with weapons and volunteers from Earth. Sparta will defend the Alliance Installations but to use Spartan Warriors and weapons to put down the rebellion would only prove the rebels are right in their assertions of Spartan Rule.
To make matters worse, Sparta can’t go to fight with the Gracken against the Weg until the rebellion is ended. The war with the Weg is not going well and the Gracken are counting on Sparta to join them in the defense of planets that are infested with Weg Queens. Jesse calls on Joshua Adams to form an Elite Unit to take on the rebels and, though he doesn’t think the young officer can make an immediate difference, he gives Joshua and Pricilla the tools they’ll need to face their enemy.
The action is continuous from fighting the Rebels on Earth to facing off against millions of charging Weg. The Weg are winning and Joshua will have to build the walls needed to hold them back.
Excerpt from Joshua’s Walls: Cliff looked up at the huge Gracken standing next to him, “We’re sorta trapped here, aren’t we?”
Rumel shook his head, “Not really, the Weg can only come at us from one direction.” He pointed at the opening of the valley directly ahead of them and said, “It would take too long for them to dig through the rocks. They’ll be coming from the valley’s entrance.”
“Are you sure they’re coming?”
Rumel chuckled, “We’re here on the ground aren’t we?”
Cliff shook his head. He had been sent by Commandant Dunlov to watch a battle between the Gracken and Weg in order to bring back intelligence on what human warriors would need to know to fight against them. After years of delay, Earth was finally under control and the Alliance had begun arming their former enemies with their most advanced weapons. The Gracken provided recordings of earlier fights but Commandant Dunlov needed to see how the new Alliance weapons were performing in close combat. Clifford was there to find out. Cliff knew the Weg would be coming in large numbers…but…he used his amplified helmet scanner and didn’t see anything for miles around the valley. He looked up at the sky and saw hundreds of military transports that had dropped the Gracken Division in the valley. They were hovering a thousand feet above in the event the Gracken warriors had to jump to escape. He turned to Rumel, “Are you sure they’re coming?” Rumel raised his shoulder launcher and started firing. Cliff turned and in the moment he looked away from the valley’s entrance to ask the question, it was now choked with an onrushing wave of green and orange colored creatures charging forward at an incredible speed. Cliff’s mouth fell open and after a moment he raised his sliver rifle and began firing it on full auto.
This review is from: Mike’s War: Sequel to Jesse’s Starship
Andrew does it again! A great read with a fun twist. Saxon Andrew pitched another fun non-stop read in the world of Jesse’s Starship. Mike’s War takes a interesting look at the Earth 17 years post alien intervention…and how good old earth common sense can save a galaxy. well worth the cost. I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoyed the Jesse’s Starship Saga. I do hope there are a couple more books on the works around these characters, it’s an exciting fun universe he has written.
