[O]nce in a while...a contemporary author penetrates to the heart of Heinlein's replicate the master's effects...[O]ne such book [is] Robert Buettner's Orphanage.


It's not every day that a...first novel draws praise...and comparisons with Robert Heinlein's Starship Troopers. Robert Buettner's Orphanage, though, certainly deserves...the accolades.

Excellent...[Orphan's Destiny] defines twenty-first [century] military science fiction...also a coming of age tale of an infantry soldier with plenty of a near future that is totally believable.
