    1. This book proves that it is possible to write a barely decent novel with cookie cutter characters, but an adequate plot and get published. This series proves that there is a male equivalent to fluffy chick lit. If you like that sort of thing then read the Dirigent Mercenary Corps series. Still the series is a quick read, and while I occasionally like fluffy paranormal romance, this series is the first to fit my fluffy space opera fix (good space opera isn't fluffy in case you're curious). But if [...]


    2. I feel I like Shelley's universe more then I like a lot of his work, and I wish that more would have been done with it. Still, this is a fun series, and with a space mercenary army traipsing around the galaxy you see a lot out of a decently designed universe, full of jerks shooting at each other for somewhat non-stupid reasons. I just wish that Shelley had dug more into his universe, and really allowed us to see more of it, rather then bite sized chunks at a time. Anyways, this novel is a fun ro [...]


    3. I wish I could give 3.5 starsNice space-marine mercenary type combat book. I'm happy to read the next one in the series when I can find it. Not much character development, but the reluctant hero works for this installment.


    4. In this time of my life, two things come to my mind: space and military. Hence, why I was attracted to this book.Lon Nolan started his military career on Earth. But he left Earth's military for the Dirigent Mercenary Corps when the Earth military was converting to a glorified police force. In order to become a lieutenant, Lon must withstand his first battlewhich could either leave him with lifetime experiences or an early grave.What I Liked:I wanted a book with military action and that is exactl [...]


    5. I was browsing through the shelves of a local charity shop when 'Officer Cadet' caught my eye. The premise is of a young trainee officer in a Mercenary Corps sent out on his first campaign and having to learn a lot about battle and about leadership. I thought I'd give it a go.It's never going to be a classic, but its enjoyable enough and doesn't take itself too seriously. The best way for me to describe 'Officer Cadet' is as 'Sharpe' set in the future. The following books - with titles such as ' [...]


    6. (Original review, Sep 2005)A young cadet on his first tour faces a not-very-mysteriously-motivated civil conflict. Slogging ensues. Unlike most military SF, this tale has neither moral quandaries, exciting tech, bloody melodrama, nor philosophical musings. Or, for that matter, interesting characters, compelling plotting, or much reason to finish it, let alone pick up the succeeding editions of the Dirigent Mercenary Corps series. Not bad, just numbingly pedestrian and routine in both tone and st [...]


    7. I must confess to never having read about mercenaries in anything other than a holy negative light before now, but this one changes that around entirely. They are, if not the good guys, just doing their jobs, and doing them professionally and fulfilling their contracts. Grist for the mill, maybe - not exactly a five-star sci-fi wonder, but enjoyable enough to at least keep the remaining titles on the shelf for a rainy day.


    8. Not a bad book as Military SciFi books go but not an incredible book. You end up liking the protagonist but you feel as if the author was just going through the motions of telling a story. It lacks any form of social commentary. If it had that I think it would be a better story. Maybe the rest of the series has that.


    9. First in a series which folows the young mercenary in the future in his career as an officer.Unlike a lot of sci fi military books, this one doesn't depend on a lot of high tech weaponry. Battle is about on the same level with Viet Nam era based on my readings as I have no military background. Enjoyable. I will complete the series over time.
