If I was going to recommend non-Honor D*v*d W*b*R, I would recommend 
_Path of the Fury_, and the trilogy starting with _Mutineers' Moon_ as 
well as the John Ringo collaborations _March Upcountry_ and _March to 
the Sea_.  They at least had intersting twists and characters.  While I 
found the first collaboration with Steve White (_Insurrection_) mildly 
interesting, I thought the other too were generic military SF with 
nothing special about them at all.  While I managed to slog through 
_Crusade_, I failed to make it past halfway of _In Death Ground_ 
thankfully saving me the expense of purchasing _The Shiva Option_.
