    This is the 4th book of Mr. Kennedy's The Revelations Cycle and it was as good as the last 3 books the Golden Horde is a mercenary unit based not in the US but in the former Soviet Union. As usual Mr. Kennedy has written a fast moving story with action and story twists that at time leaves on wondering as to why you have been given the knowledge. still it is a fast read.

    Wow.. What a cliffhanger! Now I've got to go back and re-read "A Fistful of Credits" to catch some of the characters that popped up in both Winged Hussars and Golden Horde.. I'm sure I've missed some, so I want to go back and check.. As for the story, it started off a little slowly at first, establishing that it was all taking place around the same time as the other Horsemen attacks. I'd love to see Chris and Mark produce a timeline for the fans in the next book (Book 1 of the Omega Wars)I'm still not certain what the MinSha's problem with humans is though, although I'm sure we will find out in the next books.Can Earth survive? Can the Four Horsemen save not only themselves and the other human Merc companies, but Earth itself? Only time will tell. I certainly didn't see this coming when I started this series, and even 4 books in, I didn't see it coming till I read that last couple of pages. I really hope that some other aliens are willing to stand up and support them against the mechinations of the Merc Guild and General Peepo.

    I obtained this book through the Kindle Unlimited program.Papa Pat Rambles contains some additional commentary about this series. "Golden Horde" features another great mecha battle scene (taken from the book, by the way) by Brenda Mihalko and Ricky Ryan. I was not familiar with their work prior to starting the series, but the art and lettering has been great, and the consistent approach means you can recognize a book from the series without question.The basic storyline is that the aliens landed on Earth, once Voyager 1 left the solar system, since that qualified us as an interstellar species. They had huge technological advances to sell us; unfortunately, apart from some raw materials, we had nothing they were interested in. However, through an unfortunate series of events, they discovered we could fight, and that turned out to be a rare trait in the Galactic Union.The fix was in at the start, though. In addition to dumping their rubbish on Earth buyers, the initiation into the Mercenary Guild turned out to be particularly brutal. Of the 100 mercenary and military groups who went out first (known as the Alpha Contracts), only four came back. Each one of these happened to feature the image of a horse on their battle regalia, so they collectively became known as the Four Horsemen: Cartwright's Cavaliers, Asbaran Solutions, the Winged Hussars, and the Golden Horde.Recently, each one has faced some pretty tough luck. But, as the saying goes: once is happenstance, twice is coincidence, the third time is enemy action. Since the Golden Horde is the FOURTH occurrence, there can be no doubt about the malevolence.All of the Four Horsemen have some unusual ways of accomplishing missions, but the Golden Horde is just downright...weird. Their tradition demands that they be lead by a matriarch, who receives a vision on her deathbed, which she passes on to her successor. These visions are treated with utmost sincerity by the leadership, and their fervor communicates itself to the cadre and the troops.The transmission of believe is facilitated by two things: the troops are recruited from orphanages, so the Horde becomes their new family, even giving them new names; and each troop is given cybernetic upgrades, so they can link with each other and their equipment through electronic telepathy.The close-knit nature of internal relationships is contrasted with the distance the Horde keeps from everyone else. Although they will ally with other mercenary groups, they take special care to make sure they have complete control over all modifications of their equipment. They employ the best hackers in the universe to refine and protect their operating systems, and that's been working well for them.Until they get struck with their own version of the Summerkorn Blues. He has been trained in logistics, and initially just got off track because he couldn't see the forest for the trees; he's dither on submitting the moist precise report possible, until it was too late for it to make a difference. Cashiered from each of the other Horsemen, he is, somewhat inexplicably, hired to fill a critical spot in the Horde's supply team. And here, his desire to make up for his previous errors results in the greatest threat to the human race being unleashed.

    I enjoyed Asbaran Solutions, the second book in the Revelations Cycle. But found it lacking in comparison to the Mark Wandrey entries in the series. This novel changes that. I was thoroughly engaged in the storytelling throughout. Good characters and storytelling and it really advances the series. Total enjoyment.

    Dumb And Dull As A Bag of Rocks Mr. Chris Kennedy, author of "The Golden Horde (The Revelations Cycle Book 4)," has taken a decent storyline, not withstanding inherent defects, a spun a tale that is not only dumb as a bag of rocks, but managed to make it dull and lifeless. The conspiracy of aliens, continues against the Earth's only viable export product to the Galactic Union-mercenaries. One of the big quartet, "The Four Horsemen," is the "Golden Horde," extremely competent, centered around extraordinary defensive capabilities, and based on Earth, in the land of the ancestors. The "Horde," is now the designated target of the alien cabal, aligned against Earth's mercs. A series of events are orchestrated against the "Horde," taking them off planet on a contract, and a quick return to Earth, in order to stave off subjugation.The plotting, plot devices, dialogue, all perpetrated by Mr. Kennedy, are bland, boring, lame, and in most instances, disingenuous contrivances. Nearly the entire first half of the book, a FULL fifty-percent of the story, is "adventure" in simulation gaming, coupled with explanation of how competent the "Golden Horde," is. The problem is that the author, completely contradicts this, in order to introduce a ludicrous plot device to move the story. He has a character, "Lt. Sommerkorn," an inept logistics officer, a walking cluster-f#*@, whose inabilities have been exposed in each of the preceding books of the series (1, 2, and 3), become an integral part of the "Golden Horde." It is known to the C.O. of the "Horde," that "Sommerkorn," isn't quite as advertised (the phrase: "damning with faint praise," comes to mind), as his letters of recommendation from the other "Horsemen," all thinly veil warnings. Yet, she hires him, and [Spoiler Alert!] he infects the "Horde's," and ultimately other merc units, with corrupted OS, that cripples their CASPers (armor), and physically infects a great portion of Earth's population with four (4), nanite delivered, bio-chem toxins, via a camouflage spray paint. All this is due to his "sweet deals," with a black marketeer, dealing in alien tech. Alien tech is strictly verboten by the "Horde." No one thinks to vet the products, PRIOR to field distribution. It is all so DUMB. More examples of the author's incapacity are highlighted and noted in "Goodreads." Mr. Kennedy (unlike his commercial partner in the series, Mr. Mark Wandrey), is incapable of writing an entertaining story. This book, and Book 2 of the series, are bluntly, stinkers. A decent storyline is needlessly decimated by lifeless, boring, and dishonest plot contrivances. Mr. Wandrey, has issues with sloppy writing practices, but at least Books 1 and 3 are entertaining.In his bio, Mr. Kennedy, appears proud of a book he has authored, on how to "profit" for indie writers. As evidenced by this book, "The Golden Horde," and Book 2, it creates the sense of a con, a fraud for readers."The Golden Horde," is NOT recommended, as is its author. The book was fully read via Kindle Unlimited. If the concluding book of the series is written solely by Mr. Wandrey, this reviewer will read it. If a joint effort, probably not. If solely by Mr. Kennedy, definitely not.

    All I can say is “Wow!” The storyline is compelling and a great continuation of the series. I was thoroughly invested in the characters in this book, especially Sansar Enkh, the owner of The Golden Horde. She demonstrated a perfect mix of commitment, compassion, and ruthlessness. I couldn’t put this book down!
