Review ~ The Tide of War by Lori Witt

Title: The Tide of War
Author: Lori A. Witt
Genre: Sci-Fi/Action/Adventure
Expected Release June 22, 2015
 Riptide Publishing.



Lieutenant Commander Kyle West is one of Earth Fleet’s greatest fighter pilots. Every day, he leads his squadron into battle over Earth’s cities in a seemingly endless war against a vicious alien race, defending his home and his loved ones.

Millions of miles away, the Fleet’s Elite Squadron attacks from another angle, engaging the enemy on its home turf. Casualties are high, and the Squadron needs more of the Fleet’s very best. But joining the Elite is a death sentence—a surety Kyle isn’t willing to face. Until a devastating attack wipes out the family he refused to leave.

Commander Andrei Dezhnyov, an Elite Squadron gunner, isn’t sure what to make of the cocky new American pilot. Kyle is equally uncertain about the snarly Russian, but as they warm up to each other, their tentative alliance becomes a deep bond—one that endangers them both when a daring and disobedient rescue reveals secrets that call into question everything they’ve ever believed about their enemy. Secrets that their superiors would kill to protect.












I went into this book with my eyes wide shut.  Fighter pilots and gunners fighting off an alien force that is threatening to destroy Earth.  Where men and women marry to cover their "secrets" and men and women fight and flight side by side.
Loved all the action and the visual effects written in this book, they were without a doubt truly believable.  I felt all the G-forces and I myself could not see for the black haze surrounding Menar.  

Loved the relationship between Kyle and Emily,  though I think that Andrei's and Ogrufina seemed stronger.  This book is mind blowing toward the end, I had to pick my jaw off the floor, flip back a couple of pages, just to make sure I missed something when the plot was revealed.

This is not a erotic book, all sex scenes are off the page but the story is great, the detailing is second to none and I'm still in "holy shit" mode at the books end.




Wow.... 

What just happened? One minute I'm reading about Elite fighters fighting lizard "people", and the next.... 
Well, read it to find out. Haha!! 



I think if you're not a sci-fi reader, you should still read this book. I'm not heavy on the genre, but this...it blew my mind. It definitely isn't what you think it is. 

West and Blaine join the Elite after tragedy hits home. They're sent to another planet to hit the aliens where it hurts. I won't lie, getting into this book took a little longer than expected, though it felt a little slow, I was still very curious and intrigued by the notion of the book. 

I'm sure glad I stuck with it. Once they arrive and join the squadron, things start really picking up. Kyle meets his squadron leader Andrei and thongs get a bit more " heated". In the air and in Epsilon. Things aren't as they seem though, and it takes Andrei and Ogrufenka going down for things to really get "strange". 

" What goods a gunner without his pilot "

It took a minute for my brain to wrap around the info as it was coming to me. I think I was as confused as Blaine was during everything. I think that was the beauty of the story. Political propaganda at its finest.

Though it was slow going into it for me, I give it 4 stars, mainly for originality and blowing my freaking mind
