Starstrike Operation Orion by Kevin Dockery and Douglas Niles

Just as Starstrike Operation Mars was a military shoot-em-up so is this.  SEALS, the extra S is for Space, strike terror in the hearts of our world’s enemies. 

Regardless of the time frame and setting, it still is a somewhat simplistic and far fetched saga of a group of SEALS. The new SEALS as opposed to the original Navy Seals are space faring commandos.  This rendition of the story has them facing some old enemies and reuniting with some old friends. 

This is a quick, non-taxing read.  It is chock full of action and heroics.   It is the ideal intermezzo for deep thinking or long books.   That doesn’t mean I didn’t enjoy it.   Au contraire, I breezed through it with a grin on my face. 
Although none of the characters are memorable as individuals as a group they prove themselves ferocious warriors. The arrogant aliens grossly outnumber, out gun the SEALS. The alien technology is superior. In spite of this the SEALS show the Aliens that we may be backward technologically but our spirit and ferocity are not to be underestimated. The story like the first one is a very entertaining, small unit combat novel.

I recommend the book.
