Another book I can easily recommend

There are different types of books within the science fiction genre. This book is more what I used to class as hard science fiction. There are aliens in this book who are totally out of Mr. Traynor's imagination, but there are no mind-readers, shape-shifters, angels, demons, or vampires. This is a story simply about war, politics, strategy and diplomacy. In space. I really liked it!

 Product Details
Opening moves was very well written, the descriptions of the fighting, destruction of ships and crew, and the tactics used allowed the reader to visualize the scenes. The character development was well rounded to the point that I cared when there was a loss and felt the utter disbelief felt by the characters. 

I recommend this book, and plan on reading more from James Traynor. Nicely done!
