Mar 08, David Beck rated it really liked it. I really like military sci-fi and this is a good example of the genre. The main protagonist Sorilla Aida is back on earth for a large part of this story being upgraded with all new implants and technology. Back on Hayden's station other special forces troops are struggling with attacks from elite units of the alien forces. The bulk of this story is about the space warfare and the technology and training that let the earth forces start to make headway against the aliens.

Sorilla is eventually returned to Hayden's world with an elite SF unit to deal with the alien attacks. I liked this story, I thought it made to much of the mostly female fleet officers Task Force Valkyrie since I hope that this far in the future there isn't that much concern about a person's gender but whether they can do their job. Editing and writing are weak in spots but overall a good series. Mar 17, Gina Basham rated it it was amazing.

I read the Odyssey series and like them so much I moved on to the Warrior's Wings. I was not disappointed. These novels have great characters and warning - they are not all miraculously saved. This is not a feel good, everyone makes it out alive through team work. And they are all the better for it. Very technical but not absolutely necessary to understand to get the story.

I will admit to fogging over a few paragraphs which were heavy on physics and science without any detriment to the plot, I enjoyed the human and alien characters. Each book was exciting, but important to read them in order. I will use this review for each book in the series with the disclaimer that I loved them all and was not disappointed in any of them.
If you love Sci-Fi, you will love these. Highly recommend! Aug 19, Banshee rated it really liked it Shelves: ebook , science-fiction , male-author , military-fiction.

On Silver Wings – Excellent read
I really enjoyed this novel as the novel is told from numerous POV's. The reader gets to witness events from Hayden's colonists, the aliens and Sorilla. This gives a unique perspective to events as the aliens aren't just viewed as a bad guy. Th plot was alright, the beginning was slow as Sorilla is bac A new and deadlier alien race has arrived on Hayden and is making life even more difficult for the humans. Th plot was alright, the beginning was slow as Sorilla is back home and spends most of it recovering from her surgery.
When the aliens arrive on Hayden that's when the plot really picks up as numerous battles take place. Another great addition to a great series. I would recommend it to anyone who likes military science fiction. Oct 10, Steven Bragg rated it really liked it. This is at least four stars, possibly somewhat higher.
The author is very good at keeping the action moving along at a brisk pace. In addition, it is quite nifty to see each side react thoughtfully to what the other side has just done, which introduces a great deal of realism to the storyline. The sergeant is well portrayed, and will hopefully be used in a long series of books, as she is quite engaging. The main flaws are the usual ones in an action-oriented book - a reduced amount of dialog and This is at least four stars, possibly somewhat higher.
The main flaws are the usual ones in an action-oriented book - a reduced amount of dialog and characterization - but the high level of engagement in the action makes up for it. Mar 29, Maciek rated it it was amazing. The book read even better then the first.
This time there were more points of view - from our special forces, fleet but also some more insight into aliens. Humanity needs to shift industry for space war with unknown, multiple alien species, which requires speeding up any designs or ideas. Also new quick reaction unit is formed from members of various special forces. The Hayden colony is reinforced but faces new alien threat. The story is more advanced guerilla war and another look at alien invasi The book read even better then the first. The story is more advanced guerilla war and another look at alien invasion - when they are yet to see us as more then just pests on a planet they want.
Aug 31, Lisa rated it it was ok. I think I was two-thirds done with this book before I had to stop myself and say I didn't really care what happened next. I got my answer as to why the aliens invaded in the weird way they did and that was all I wanted. I felt like Currie was all over the place. One minute we're playing around with a new gun in some obstacle course and the next we're mooning over the Sarge while fighting the aliens badly. The aliens didn't feel like aliens either. I'm not sure where Currie is going. I was going to read this book and stop the series, but it's not skin off my back to quit entirely.

Apr 03, Steven rated it it was amazing. The entire On Silver Wings series of books are well worth the read. As soon as I finished one, I picked up the next. Engrossing, rich with detail, and progressively thrilling, the main character has never been written dumb simply to progress the plot. Currie maintains consistent character profiles throughout the series. Jan 12, Andrew rated it really liked it Shelves: space-sci-fi. Well I firmly believe that this second book of the series was better than the first one.
It had a different vibe from the first and i loved that we got to see the alien perspective of the battle and more Aida.

I personally love her character and am glad you get to learn a little more about her and the background that she comes from. You also get to mean other elite military members that are interesting in there own right and worth getting to know.

Valkyrie Rising is the second volume of the Warrior's Wings saga and continues the story oh human colonies being attacked by a technologically advanced unknown alien species. It is a story about the people who choose to defend others even though they are the underdogs. The action takes place in space and on the ground in the jungles of Hayden. Special forces and space science fleet officers turned navy combat officers against gravitational weapon wielding aliens.
Who could ask for more?

I was so thoroughly entertained, I hardly put this book down. In addition, I loved the nice treat of seeing the conflict through the aliens' perspective.
I highly recommend this book to fellow SF fans and also recommend to fellow dark urban fantasy readers who are interested in a good space-opera and not a space romance.

I can't wait for the release of the next book in the series The Valhalla Call due out summer Apr 23, Mike J rated it really liked it. With "Valkyrie Rising" we get the return of our protagonist. Sergeant Aida is back. But, this time she's in her element as part of a larger force. And as readers, we're no longer just focused on the conflict evolving on a lone world, but we're also exposed to a much larger epic.
So while keeping tabs on Aida, we're also able to see the greater story unfold where she plays but a small role. It's a great way to keep the comforting intimacy of the characters we know, while expanding the scope of the story into something bigger - bigger conflict, bigger stakes, bigger cast, bigger! Somehow, Currie has managed to keep each book intense, and full of conflict - but still end on a really satisfying, fulfilling note. Instead of following the "Star Wars" formula introduce the conflict, dark episode, vindication of the good guys , he's made each book a complete story arc.
Personally, I find that a much funner and more satisfying way to read a series. Looking forward to the next book Mar 08, David Beck rated it really liked it.
