Genre: military science fiction
Length: 384 pages
Setting: far future, other planets
Interest: It was a random book picked off my Kindle.
Summary: Strike Force company C41 is sent as the advance troops on a Spook base. The brass decides the base is too hot to bring in the rest of the attack force, and the members of C41 are forced to retreat without support. There’s more, but I stopped reading at this point.
Final thoughts: Too much fighting for me. The first 50 pages at least are all fighting and weapons and people and aliens getting blown up, and I’m just not interested in that much battle. It’s quality military science fiction, but not what I’m looking for in a book.
Title comes from: Apparently (from the Amazon description) the whole company is deemed psychologically unfit (“redlined”) after the opening mission.
Reading challenges fulfilled: none since I didn’t finish the book
