The sixth book in The Globur Incursion series, Assault by D. Rebbitt delivers the entertainment that fans of action thrillers and science fiction long for; it is pulse-pounding and filled with strong doses of military action. While the unorthodox methods of Rear Admiral Jones have been able to hold the Globur back, the Fleet still remains in dire straits, suffering great losses and damages in destroyers and systems. The Globur adapt fast and they are persistent. After his service in the military, it is like Rear Admiral Brown has been forgotten, but now he has been called back into service and he is bringing his elite team with him. Can they make a difference? With the Senate deciding that everything is thrown into the fight — all available ships and systems — there are misgivings from the top military leaders. However, theirs is not to question but to follow orders, especially the marines under Sergeant Major Sanderson. The stakes are high and the survival of the Fleet depends on this final action.
Assault is written by an author who has a great gift for setting and storytelling. The setting is at the rim and the military battles an alien incursion. The conflict couldn’t be handled any better than D. Rebbitt has done. While creating scenes of war in a well-imagined space, the author creates tension within the decision-making echelon when it comes to strategy. There is a sense of urgency written into the story and it gives weight to every moment and scene. The writing is impeccable, featuring diligently crafted scenes, compelling action, and dialogues that move the story forward. The characters are rock-solid and fleshed out, and most of the key characters are backed by a rich military experience. Assault is balanced and deft, reflecting devious scheming and sharp detail; it is propulsive, with characters that fans will adore.
