I got this free on the kindle, not sure how I came by it.
Full title: The Honour of the Knights (The Battle for the Solar System)
From an Amazon review:
A star-pilot who is out of active military service because of unintentional manslaughter. He is recalled to take part in a special project with his wingmates, but ends up failing the final test and being shipped of to a backwater star system. He is then called forward for a massive assault, and becomes involved in a plot to overthrow his government.
My feelings: The book is not fantastically written, lots of spelling mistakes but it is not terrible. The It is the start of a space opera which takes you across vast tracts of space with fantastical space ships and superhuman space enemies. The characters are a little underdeveloped and the jumps in the story line are clunky at times. I did think that some of the descriptions sounded a little like something you would hear in a legal document.
This aside, science took a bit of a back seat but some of the concepts were intersting. It was a light read but that was ok, more importantly I couldn't put it down, the sign of a good one for me.
