Sword is a work of fiction in the science fiction, action, and adventure sub-genres, and was penned by author D. Rebbitt. Written as the fifth novel in The Globur Incursion series, we pick up the story once again as the Globur’s reign of terror makes anyone and everyone in the known universe a potential target. As the military drama and political action continue on a wider scale, we also home in on key players in this next wave, where Rear Admiral Jones is given the order that he may take the offensive when he sees fit. So begins a new strategy to defend those who need it and to attack the Globur with the full might of the Fleet.
Author D. Rebbitt has penned many instances of this ongoing science fiction saga, and in each one, the picture changes to offer new perspectives on the many intricacies of war. I personally really enjoyed the emphasis on the role of politics and opinions back home and those who seek to gain what they can from such a disaster. But military fiction fans will also enjoy the many well-penned action scenes and the discussions of different strategies and movements which take place. The dialogue is, as always, sharp and direct, characterizing familiar heroes like Zenke well but also introducing us to new figures and revamping old foes. Overall, I would certainly recommend Sword to existing fans of The Globur Incursion series, and the author in general to hardcore sci-fi fans who love a lot of battles and big picture thinking in their reading.
