Review: F.I.S.T.S. Handbook For Individual Survival in Hostile Environments by Bey Deckard

F.I.S.T.S. Handbook For Individual Survival in Hostile Environments


This is the special full colour edition that contains:

Sarge, F.I.S.T.S. #1
Sometimes it’s just about being in the right place at the right time… with the right person.
Sarge is the short story of a burgeoning D/s relationship between two Space Marines stationed on an alien planet where an endless war drags on.
Sergeant Wilkes is a hard man with a long, celebrated military career.
Brawny, tattooed, and utterly submissive, Murphy is just an interesting diversion… until Sarge realizes he has found something truly rare.


Murphy, F.I.S.T.S. #2
Sometimes when it seems like it’s too late, the right person comes along and opens your eyes…
Murphy is the continuing story of a D/s relationship between two Space Marines who found each other in the midst of hopelessness and misfortune.
Sarge and his newly minted squad travel across the galaxy on a top-secret mission that could help win the war. However, to Murphy something about the mission stinks, and it’s not just the planet they’ve landed on.


Bonus content:
The Missing Reel – Short deleted scene between Andrew Murphy and Sergeant Wilkes.




I liked it. It was ok for most of the book, but I think I fail to really love it as I did the other books from the author.

The main issue I didn’t enjoyed it so much it was more personal than the book itself. I’m really not into military stories, most of the times the personality of such characters has create a barrier for me and I rather not read those kind of book, but I just can’t reject a Bey Deckard book, so even with a military theme, I was going to read this book sooner or later.

The characters were nice, I liked Murphy the most, there was something about him that I loved. Sarge was also very nice, but his attitude towards the others held me from fully liked him as I did Murphy, I didn’t have the same problem when he was directing the same attitude to Murphy because it was sort of expected and it was appropriate for the kind of relationship they had.

The plot was ok, but I lost interest maybe because of what I mention previously. There were some events near the end that re-capture my interest and, at least for the end of the book, I was really interested on know what would happen.

Overall it was fine, not my favorite from the author, but I think anyone who liked military books can love it.
