The year is 4319 AD. Two thousand years before, an alien force devastated Earth. The survivors were able to rebuild somewhat and over the next two thousand years Terra was broken down into factions - the two major ones, the mighty city-state of Sorovaste and its arch enemy, the European Empire. In a mission to recover long lost technology, Sorovaste sends their special operations commandos of the Black Watch to the devastated Japan. Here they must combat dreaded dragons, mutants, and gigantic rat-like creatures.
The European Empire also wants technology for themselves and launches a devastating attack. While the two world super powers are fighting for control, a squad of Black Watch troopers finds a long deserted base underneath Mt. Kenashi. What they find is way more than they could ever have imagined. Lieutenant Miya Harakuro is the last of the famed Neko soldiers, a half human/half feline species bred to be soldiers. When she is woken from stasis, she is quickly brought into the combat where her skills save the day. However the peace doesn’t last long when a new alien force attacks. Lives hang in the balance as Miya and the Black Watch undertake a dangerous mission in the heart of a raging battle with the fate of the world hanging in the balance.
Miya’s Assault: The Black Watch Chronicles Book 1 by Fred D. Shutts is a pure adrenalin rush from page one. If action-adventure and science fiction is your thing, you won’t be disappointed. The author has developed an interesting and diverse cast of characters. The plot is simple but well developed. The story is very detailed but moves along at a good pace to keep the reader’s interest. Overall, I liked this book very much.
