July Books 8) Keepers of the Peace

8) Keepers of the Peace, by Keith Brooke

Keith is the very nice guy who edits the infinity plus website - I didn't realise that he was also an author, and snapped this up when I saw it, oh, somewhere recently. A straightforward young-soldier's-rite-of-passage tale, a la Heinlein's Starship Troopers, Haldeman's The Forever War, or Lucius Shepard's Life During Wartime, and TBH not quite of the quality of any of those. But competent enough, and I'll keep an eye out for his other two novels.
