    • Summary: First, let me say that none of what I’ll say in this section couldn’t be found on the back copy of the novel. I wanted to provide a spoiler free review, so here goes nothing! This novel carries on in the world of the Occupied Seattle duology with the same cast of characters. The war with China, the Sino American War, was over and Lieutenant Shawn 'Calvin' Hobbs just wanted his life to get back to normal. As the hero of the war, he had a small ream of paperwork to fill out, a deploym [...]


    • Very Good Military Space Opera Another great military space opera/SF novel from Chris Kennedy ! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!This very good novel begins with a group of alien visitors approaching the government of the United States and requesting a crew to man a starship. The USA had just finished a short World War with China, and suffered some damage and an invasion of Seattle by a Chinese Army. In response to the request for crew, the president of the United States (much smarter than ANY president duri [...]


    • wow, I did not know what this book was going to be like, but I decided to give it a crack, Boy was I pleasantly surprised and pleases I got it as it was awesome and has a good pace there is always something happening so you just want to keep reading I have just purchased the 2nd one in the series so I can find out what happens next


    • This is a light read. I think the author learned a lot from the first two books and this book displays a maturing storytelling style.The arc is still fairly predictable in that humanity is grabbing some early wins to build up to a more climatic mid series show down.This book continued the story line of existing characters and continued the somewhat annoying tendency to name/introduce new characters as they die. Its a war story and people die in them, either spend the words to create the characte [...]


    • A bit of a choppy start, and having not yet read Calvin's backstory, I felt a bit off my footing. I enjoyed the story, once it got going, and I hope to see more of the new civilizations. It was hard to remember who died, and the deaths didn't get the emotional punch that often appears in other books. I'm looking forward to seeing the Russians and Chinese in the next books. I'd like to get more about the characters.


    • This is a bad book. Don't read it.Except for the protagonist there are no characters at all. Many names, but no characters, sometimes not even that much. At one point near the end four persons die and the author has the never to make it a production, listing full name and rank four times as if that was supposed to mean something. Three of these names have not been mentioned before, the fourth marginally.Probably to counteract this lack of supporting characters, we get a main one that is just too [...]


    • I met Chris Kennedy at InConJunction, a science fiction con in Indianapolis. He seemed like a nice guy so I bought his book. I'm glad I did.Janissaries is Book 1 of his second series. It opens with a group of aliens who've been observing and protecting Earth for thousands of years approaching Lieutenant Sean Hobbs, USN for help. The alien communication system is down, probably due to hostile action, and the aliens need humans to help crew their ship. Hobbs was approached because of his heroic ac [...]


    • I stumbled on Janissaries, the first book in Chris Kennedy's THEOGONY series, as a recommendation by after some other books that I have purchased. The description is kind of up my alley because I like the idea of the Earth fighting to preserve itself from an alien race. So, I dropped a couple of bucks and picked up this self-published story. It gets good reviews at .Chris Kennedy has a story that he wants to tell about how the history of the earth is tied into different alien races having impac [...]


    • 'Janissaries' is an entertaining read that will appeal mainly to fans of military sci-fi that leans toward the "Hollywood action movie" end of the spectrum (which is totally my style). Most of the characters are stock Colonial Marines-style badasses and the easy manner in which the story jumps into itself (basically "Hey, we're aliens and we're here to give you spaceships to fight stuff") clearly establishes the kind of fun (and sometimes silliness) that you're in for, even before you encounter [...]


    • Good book. World building & adventure well done and you do feel invested in some of the main characters and others are quirky enough that you look forward to getting to know them more. Surprisingly what caught my attention the most was the interactions and reactions of the various countries and I'm interested in how that develops. It lost a star based on the presidents speech to the nation & world towards end of book and the "unrealistic block headed" plan to get he feels is needed. What [...]


    • Military fiction meets fantasy in Mr. Kennedy's novel. When aliens approach the U.S. government to warn of a possible alien attack, Shawn "Calvin" Hobbs is put in charge of a special force that is sent into space to fight an interstellar war. The aliens agree to provide the necessary technology, but only if the people of Earth are willing to work together. Can the joint-nations Special Forces platoon accomplish their mission? And, how will the nations of Earth react to becoming a unified planet? [...]


    • Science fiction is not my usual genre but I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It is a spin-off of the Occupied Seattle series and I was interested in seeing where it would go. The author continues to make the unimaginable become plausible. I love books that keep me interested in what happens next and found myself tuning out the world so that I could "just read one more chapter." I have already downloaded the next book, "When the Gods Aren't Gods" and can't wait to start reading!


    • I found this book really hard work and drawn out. The first half of the book could have been vastly compressed. You have a chapter where the Navy is brought up to speed. The next chapter is a cut and paste of the first with Navy changed to Airforce then there is the army that need to be told. Then when they eventually do meet an alien race they have all these advanced weapons and go armed with swords - how daft is that?

    • Interesting plot, I like the characters. I'm still waiting for the nice aliens asking for help to reveal their not-so-nice side. My suspicious nature coming through. I'll follow up with the other books to see how this turns out and satisfy my curiosity. I'll go three.pointve and hope for a bump to four.


    • I hadn't realized this was a young adult book. Normally I don't mind young adult, but once the author had the CNO giggling like a petulant schoolgirl in a meeting with the president, I just couldn't take any more. I'm sure there's lots of action and adventure in this book, and although it's an interesting premise, it's just not for me.


    • Now this will only attract you if you like Military SF which is a sub genre all of its own. This is book 1 of a new series, though I thing there might be prequels that I haven't read yet. Sort of fits into a sub genre of "secret history of the world" books. I think that this is an amateur writer, but if he is then he is very good indeed. Read this in days!


    • An enjoyable readSome obvious contrived issues but still, I did enjoy it. was it good enough to shell out four books for the next book? In my case, no but others will like it enough to do so.


    • Very good book I will probably read it again.I like the action. The concept of the frog alien race was good look forward to next book. I would like some more detail on the Star ship.



    • awesome book but needs to tone down the repetitive dates in the team battles; it's really distracting and take away from the delivery.



    • Great book. Not in my usual area of interest, but read it anyways. I am glad I did. Looking forward to the next book to come out in April.
