A Soldier’s Duty: Theirs Not to Reason WhyA SOLDIERS DUTY Cover, by Jean Johnson was genuinely a wonderful read and the beginning of a wonderful new series by the author.  Prior to this book I cannot say with 100% certainty I had ever read anything by Jean Johnson, and now I am already on the second book and my best friend has lent me the third book.  If there are more books to this series I am definitely picking them up.  I simply must know what happens to the hero, Ia.

This book might not be for all because it develops and is told from a career military woman of the future who sees a lot of combat.  At the same time, there is hope woven into the novel as well as questions and mysteries that Ia, a precognitive, doesn’t even know.

The action is fast paced.  The universe of the story is well thought out.  The characters are realistic.  It has everything I enjoy in an action adventure novel as well as a mystery.

If you do pick up A Soldier’s Duty, I highly recommend you pick up the second book, and the third, because it is an excellent read.
