My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Jump into an action packed high stakes military Sci fi adventure!

this is a well done military Sci fi that starts out with Kat a MC who thinks she’s been dispatched to a boring assignment but it turns into anything but. This multi POV military Sci fi brings so much camaraderie, sarcasm, quick humor and strong attention to detail that you feel immersed in these characters adventure and its hard not to like any of them.

I did feel like the action was a tiny bit rushed so I had to slow down my typical reading style to make sure I got all of the well built details but it is worth it as you can easily miss important bits it you aren’t paying attention.

this adventure is left open with hopefully more story to come as you’ll be invested in the outcome of the story at the end!

A fast paced adventure about a special ops group called Daire’s devils, who have to protect their colony from invaders. But trouble brews when someone tries to play with the prototype aircraft, and it becomes difficult to trust if the enemy is actually from outside or inside. This is a sci-fi/ military thriller which keeps you guessing till the end. The plot is quite engrossing and the characters are likeable. It was an enjoyable fast read.

This story proved to be high stakes and totally immersive from the very start. Kat is an MC that is easy to trust. Her intuition proves to be her best ally. The relationships between the characters was very well done, especially how they dealt with death, even if the life was lost by their hand. The attention to detail by the author was really well done. Highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to get into military sci-fi. Once you start this story, your whole world is left behind and replaced by this one.

This Sci fi military story isn’t a genre I would normally read but I am glad I gave it a chance because I enjoyed it very much. This book is full of action, great characters, suspense and danger. The author did an exceptional job keeping me entertained and the detail was so vivid that it felt real. I was kept on the edge of my seat wondering who was the enemy, who was working for who? Kat found herself in some dangerous situations, but she didn’t let it stop her from doing her job and what she believes is right. There are many other great characters. When I got to the end I wanted more. I look forward to reading more from this author.

Corporal Katrion Alexander is a member of the 142nd Mobile Special Ops Team, also known as the Daire’s Devils and they are the ones called in to make the hard decisions and take on the hard missions and as their newest member, the Corporal is on the receiving end of the usual hazing by the rest of the team, however, when she is given an assignment which is separate from the rest of the team, she feels like she is been left behind.

While on this assignment, although she feels abandoned, she doesn’t have much time to think about it when she is thrown in at the deep end and left to sort out someone else’s mess, she is not impressed in the slightest, but she gets on with her assigned duties anyway, but the way in which she does it is not as protocol suggests and this gets her into a bit of trouble. This is only the start when she finds herself on the receiving end of some less than stellar treatment and starts to second guess everything she thought she knew, but she also uncovers some vital information at the same time, that a synthetic fighting operative has replaced a vital member of the hierarchy and she discovers this by ending up in a confrontation with one.

As she is debriefed, the plot thickens as a plot within the Allied Forces is revealed when someone tries to steal valuable information about AeroCom’s new flagship called the Cromwell and the secrets that ship holds, but nobody knows who the infiltrators are, or who they are trying to steal the information for. Meanwhile, the Devils are given a new mission to aid in the defence of a planet which is at risk of exploitation and military invasion, the planet Demeter and this particular planet is a heavily contested piece of terrain, but with the information they have, can the Daire’s Devils complete their mission, or will the infiltrators get what they want and blow the mission apart?

This is a sci-fi with action, reaction and subterfuge, where one tight knit team must unravel the plots they have been thrown into the midst of, in this fast paced race across the galaxy where nothing is as it seems and trust is hard won and even harder to keep as you fly along with the team from the beginning of the mission until you have to know how it ends.

Daire’s Devils was not in my normal genre of reading, and have not read anything before by this author, but I am so impressed. Danielle Ackley-McPhail creates a wonderful mix of characters that are realistic and relatable. The reader can’t help fall in love with the comradery and quick humor between the characters. There is also great works building, much of that world created in space. There is a lot of information in the book concerning characters and other information, and that sometimes muddled the story a bit, but it is all relevant and useful to the story itself. Overall, Daire’s Devils is a great, fast-paced read full of twists and turns, drama, but also friendship. I look forward to reading more from this author in the future!

Daire’s Devils is the first book in the Daire’s Devils series. This is a Military/Sci-Fi that has lots if adventure packed with action. I was pulled in from the beginning and had a hard time putting it down. It was a perfect snow day read. I’m a fan of this author and have reaf several other books by her and this one is definitely going on my favorites list. The storyline was easy to follow and the characters are fun and relatable. It’s a fast paced story that is packed full of action. The Daire’s Devils are a special ops team whom is ready to defend their colony from an invasion. Be careful who trust you never know they could be the enemy and you not know it.I highly recommend reading this book to find out what happens next? I can’t wait to read more from this series and author.

Let me tell you this was a new one for me. Completely out of my comfort zone but something about that synopsis and a few teasers drew me in to an author I am already familiar with. This was for starters an incredibly vivid read, and I could tell that this a passion of the authors and I can appreciate that. Now, I don’t know a thing about RPGs but I will say this has to be a fantastic one to base off of because it just jumps off your kindle. I did find myself struggling from time to time as a person who isn’t already familiar with this world and would maybe suggest some smoothing in the writing in future books to help that for others in my shoes. I enjoyed the entire team of characters and really want to come back for more adventures. This is definitely one to check out if you like military sci-fi loaded with action and adventure.

Daire’s Devils is an exciting military sci-fi novel. It combines influences from the real military with a vibrant future setting that will satisfy even the pickiest sci-fi fans.
The story is gripping from the start. We see Kat, believing she’s been given a boring job to keep her safe only to find that she’s in a lot more danger than she realised. There are levels of secrets and mysteries to solve, and plenty of action along the way. I love Kat’s resourcefulness, and she’s not overskilled to the point of seeming unrealistic.
This book will appeal to fans of Star Trek and other space military stories. There’s great attention to detail, including seemingly mundane aspects like what the showers are like and how the “meat” is produced. This paints a vivid picture, and helps make the story more believable. They also address things like grief and guilt for the ordinary crew members who are killed when a ship is destroyed – something which many stories seem to gloss over.
Daire’s Devils gets five stars from me! This is a captivating story that will take you on an amazing adventure!
