    1. "Casualties of War" I won from Giveaways and found it to be a captivating story of the physical and mental destructiveness that war in space has on the lives of its veterans. In the aftermath of a bloody Terran attack on Centauri, Katja Emmes, the daughter of a decorated hero, is stricken with posttraumatic stress syndrome and finds little support in her distress. After a disastrous reassignment she is condemned to medical leave, but finds the strictures of civilian life not only restrictive bu [...]


    2. I did not read the first book. Yet, I had no problems jumping right into this one. Having not read the first book, sometimes you can feel like you have missed a lot. However, this was not the case with this book. What drew me into this book was the world and the characters that the author has built with this series. A nice futuristic book. Everyone from Lt. Commander Thomas Kane to Lt. Katja Emmes and SubLt. Jack Mallory were all strong characters. As much as I enjoyed the characters and the wor [...]


    3. I enjoyed this book even more than Virtues of War. It helped me to understand what the Vietnam vets went through when they returned.It was interesting to reconnect with the characters from Virtues of War. In this book we meet them after their battles.; some of those who had risked everything for their country and have come home not as heroes but as outsiders. I found it hard to sympathize with Katja- I felt she had become too much of a soldier, a killer, but could understand the honesty of the c [...]


    4. This is a great 2nd book in the Virtues of War trilogy. Mr. Coles explores the characters in more detail and the effects that war has on people's psyche, even in the future. The repercussions from book 1 carry forward to be the plot of book 2 in an engaging and exciting way. Looking forward to book 3 coming out this fall!


    5. A good military sci-fi book that focuses primarily on how veterans deal with returning from combat. This time around the book is primarily on Earth & how the main characters from the first book are faring. They are all flawed in some way, trying to make the best of it. The Terran State isn't a wonderful government (you are convicted, then have a hearing), but the citizens don't seem to care too much. They love their phones too much.The first two acts move along, but once the third act of the [...]


    6. Well written butI'm not a fan of the "magical" aspects introduced where individuals can travel on their own three space and appear anywhere at will or communicate to any other special person. It's one thing when space ship technology used it to travel but the mind powers are too far for me.


    7. Although the plot is interesting and fast paced, I found this novel just a bit too long. There were several confusing moments when the information presented didn't make any sense. And Katje's character seems to have veered into a strange territory. Not sure it's feasible. The other characters are more realistic.



    8. I gladly read this second installment. the plot was slower and didn't pick up. The Enemy were active with portable Jump Gates which picked up Coles take on the Fourth Dimension. the characters needed a little more development.


    9. I read “Virtues of War” followed by “Casualties of War,” and since the reading was a single event, this review covers both books.It took me a while to get into the first book as military science fiction was not something I’d explored before. When I stopped trying to remember what the acronyms meant, I slipped into the story. There was a shift from laws governed by gravity to laws, different laws, operating in space. Time and distance were immense and there was a sense of a universe so [...]


    10. Ghosts of War is the second in Bennett R. Coles ‘Virtues of War’ series (the review for the first book can be found here!). Ghosts of War follows on from the events within the first book, taking on a completely different tone that highlights the treatment provided to war veterans following a tour. The more common theme within this novel is mental health and how it affects each of the characters differently alongside how they are treated following their actions from the war in space.I am glad [...]


    11. SighTurns out she was not just a marine, with a new hairdo she was also a smashing beautyd yes the evil journalist makes an apperance.A solid DNF this book.


    12. Casualties of war was a fascinating story about the pain, physically and mentally, the veterans go through in the war in space. There are many characters in which all play a very important role to the story as a whole. The characters are extremely well written with a thorough background, which helps you visualize and understand each character as an individual. The story is filled with curiosity and betrayal, but also containing mutual attachment, loyalty and love. I understand this is a second b [...]


    13. Casualties of War was a decent read. This science fiction novel is based on military relations on space warfare. At times this novel proved to be a challenging slow read, but when the action and deception kicked in Coles really delivered. During these times of war Coles gives us (the readers) great insight into the main character's psyche. Reading and essentially feeling the emotions and struggles that each veteran goes through day to to day puts this novel in perspective despite it be acted out [...]


    14. This book was awesome. It was quite different from the first in the series, but I loved the fact that the author was able to stretch this much - Casualties of War is anything but a re-hash of Virtues of War. It's a very thoughtful, character-driven story about what happens when our heroes return home from war, about the Terran society that created them, and about the repercussions of their actions in the first book. And just in case you thought the war was over Well, no spoilers here. I thorough [...]


    15. the sequel to Virtues of War did not disappoint! It is well written with clearly thought out character arcs. This has the same depth and quality of Virtues, but this times takes a look at the characters reactions to combat stress - an interesting angle - but still with enough action to keep the reader on the edge of their seat


    16. If this had been the first book in the series, I would not have finished it. It took too long for the action to start.
