A fascinating story line. Great military science fiction action. Well thought out characters, who are very believable. Earth trying to recover from international war and devastation. Aliens trying to subjugate the people. A group of veterans finding advanced alien technology, then using it to solve both problems.

This book is definitely an improvement over the first book by this author. The book is longer and the pace is better. It takes a more reasonable time to let events unfold (at least until the end). It still shows that the author is at the beginning of his learning curve but he has made much progress.

Dan and company is back although the book do not center as much as Dan himself as the previous book. Sure, he is still a main character but in this book a number of other characters are also allowed to take a leading role in the various events that unfold. The story is a pretty wild ride and sometimes stretches the bounds of realism, even for a science fiction book.

The Gray Panthers are desperately trying to build up sufficient forces to repel the coming invasion fleet. At the same time a mission is launched to acquire a substance needed to build advanced components for their effort. During the mission they get to interact with intergalactic bankers (!!!) and other parties. Here it does indeed go a bit wild and I would say that the behavior of these aliens are a wee bit weird as well as simplistic, even a bit childish. The latter being enforced by the sometimes somewhat silly names of things.

Back on Earth the humans are, not surprisingly, behaving as humans (especially the politicians as well as certain other organisations on the government payroll). Something which hampers the efforts in building up the defense forces. Dan is of course still a person that does not take any s*** so these people are rather quickly realizing that they put their fot in the wrong place.

Then we come to the end and here is where I got a bit of a gripe with the book. We have this nice build up for a bit of alien clobbering but it kind of felt like the author ran out of steam.Read more ›

A awesome read. I hope to see David Guenther become as popular as John Ringo. Some of the context in his books are similar to Ringos works, however the writing itself differs. The books are complete books, not cut short and made into 7 or 12 more books to increase profits. I found that both books where hard to put down and had me completely immersed in both the story line and the present action of both of the books. I also have to make note that the second book is equal to or better than the first and does not go downhill like many series that I have read. To build on that there is not allot of work copied from the first book to fill out pages, another mark of a quality read. Weather new to military sci fi or an old hat like myself you will find this a must read set of books. I will be doing a reread for sure!

New author, did not know what to expect. I was hooked by the first book and purchased this book after finishing the first one. I could not put this down. Excellent cast of characters well developed. I look forward to the next book in this series. Excellent Job!!

I read Gray Panthers Battle for Earth and wanted to see what happens next. Gray Panthers Earth’s Revenge is much more advanced in the writing almost like another author but still having a similar style to it. When is Gray Panthers Dixie coming out?

All the attributes any good sci- fi book should have especially for your second try. Keep it up. Honor, courage, sacrifice, love of country, humor, action what more could a reader ask except the next book. Thank you!

This is no in-depth, different twist on every page story, this is more of a relaxing, read the whole book in one sitting. Enjoyed it, did not have to tax my limited mind to understand the plot.
