Excellent near-term science-fiction series
This is an excellent series, and I just completed book 3. Since it's fairly near future, the only technology that is in use that's not available currently are anti-grav & ftl. The character descriptions are excellent, and the events unfold in a reasonable way, given what the characters knew at the time.
I really recommend this series!

Excitement, romance, action and vision keep me as a reader enthralled with this book.
I love every personality‼️ Molly, Rick, Kelly, her daughters and Ciara kept me sooooo entertained. It sure would make an entertaining TV series.

This one's for the girls. A well written book showing how badass women are and how they can handle the rigors of being in combat. It also showed that despite this, there will be those who cannot, or will not, take women seriously. The author's intent here is not to perpetuate that opinion... it is to show that women are more capable than some will give them credit for and that not all men are misogynistic buffoons. Aside from the strong language and violence, I would suggest that you get your daughters, nieces, granddaughters, etc. to read these books.

This Book Rocks!!! When Sergeant Molly Bennett kills two of the sons of world famous terrorist, Hassan Gul, she pokes a hornets’ nest. When she and Lieutenant Rick O’Brien kill Gul, himself, and two more of his son’s, the hornets’ nest bursts open and all hell breaks loose. This is the backdrop to Mike Adam’s exciting new novel, Fierce Girls, and the foundation of a whole new series with the same name as Molly and Rick have to deal with the consequences of their actions.
The action in this book is intense, develops quickly and plausibly, but not necessarily in a predictable fashion. That’s good obviously! I learned quickly I could never be certain what Adams had in store on the next page. The other highlight of the novel is the large cast of fiercely independent and deadly capable characters. O’Brien’s large family (grandmother, sisters, daughter) often steal the show from the two technical heroes—but that’s a good thing because I have no doubt that these women will be taking center stage as the series develops.
In summation, the future is a mixed bag in Mike Adams’ 22nd century universe. On the one hand, technology is becoming truly amazing, faster-than-light travel has been developed and humanity is colonizing a planet orbiting another star. But on the other hand, the threat of terrorism is worse than ever and much of it is directed at stopping the colonizing of that new world. This well-thought-out mix produces plenty of problems which provides loads of excitement in this novel and promises even more in the books to come.
Fierce Girls is now available in audiobook form on Audible, Amazon and i-Tunes
