The second book in an epic interstellar trilogy of war from a master of science fiction.
A new planet. A new battle. Same war.
After barely surviving his last tour on Mars, Master Sergeant Michael Venn finds himself back on Earth in enforced isolation. Through a dangerous series of operations he returns to Mars to further his investigation into the Drifters—ancient artifacts suddenly reawakened on the red planet.
But another front in the war leads his team to make the difficult journey to Saturn’s moon Titan. Here, in the cauldron of war, hides new truths about the Drifters, the origin of life in our solar system, and the plans of the supposedly benevolent Gurus, who have been “sponsoring” and supporting humanity in their fight against outside invaders.

This is the middle of a significant trilogy. As such it continues the first novel without coming to a conclusion, but lays out the hints for an interesting ending. I enjoyed the novel and the way some threads were wound up and entagled with new ones. This should be a very good trilogy and I have preordered the third part when it is available.
I totally enjoyed both War Dogs and Killing Titan. I hope the third book does not take long, on my 4th Marineland "E" ticket and I feel the black glass creeping in. On the string, too many Fobbit masters to count. Fear's odor is distant, getting harder and harder to locate, I'd like to finish this tril before the snap I won't hear...
And too much mental chatter
