Kill Before Dying by Travis S. Taylor

Trail of  Evil was the first Taylor book I read.  It only earned three starships mostly because I felt out of it having not read the three previous books.  This jumps to 4 starships due to having had some background, the story makes more sense.  Former President Alexander Moore has taken his task force to the enemy, the Chiata.  The Chiata are a locust like scourge trying to cleanse the galaxy of all life but their own.   Moore doesn’t see that as a viable option and takes the war to a distant star system that may hold a key to human survival.

This, the fifth book in the series, made more sense having read it’s immediate precursor.  The characters were more familiar and the action was as non-stop as before.   Taylor’s books are a bit light on story line and very heavy on action.   That is not a criticism, merely an observation. 

I enjoyed the book, the addition of new entities and the guns, guns, guns action.


This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
