Your standard military science fiction Pretty good battles Based around Marines Second in the series.So this book is muchfocused around pirates and space, rather than rebels ground fight rebels like the first book.The plot was okay, however I nearly gave up a few times due to the authors obsession with rape over all other forms of torture and violence He just goes on and on about it, and barely mentions any other bad things.He also seems to have a bit of an obsession with female Your standard military science fiction Pretty good battles Based around Marines Second in the series.So this book is muchfocused around pirates and space, rather than rebels ground fight rebels like the first book.The plot was okay, however I nearly gave up a few times due to the authors obsession with rape over all other forms of torture and violence He just goes on and on about it, and barely mentions any other bad things.He also seems to have a bit of an obsession with female slaves They re everywhere, so much so I do wonder
I though the novel was a little preachy, it was kind of hard to read through the evils of bureaucrats or the failings of the empire or how well trained the marines are It actually detracted from the story a bit to the poin
I have enjoyed a lot of this author s work Good characters that I actually am invested in and want to see prosper Good combat action, with realistic outcomes Some typos and punctuation mistakes, but otherwise a great book Looking forward to reading the rest of the series. Having read the first Empires Corps I had to read the 2nd, and I wasn t disappointed It basically picks up where the last one finished, but with a minor time difference.Again, Christopher Nuttall has stuck to the same formula as the last with the Easter Eggs Still one of my favourite things , brilliant Characters, simply some of the best action sequences I have read in this genre, with clear concise descriptions, allowing the reader to feel involved in the battle, but not dragging it on Having read the first Empires Corps I had to read the 2nd, and I wasn t disappointed It basically picks up where the last one finished, but with a minor time difference.Again, Christopher Nuttall has stuck to the same formula as the last with the Easter Eggs Still one of my favourite things , brilliant Characters, simply some of the best action sequences I have read in this genre, with clear concise descriptions, allowing the reader to feel involved in the battle, but not dragging it on for pages and pages so we get lost in it, and a fantastic plotline.There are multiple new plot twists of course and this time, our heroic Marines, having flushed out the Bandits and the Crackers on Avalon and helped to restore a peaceful Government, are now faced with the imminent threat of no Empire Worse yet, Pirates come and attack and again No Spoilers here go read it it s brilliant
This book haspirates than marines Well, at least in terms of number of pirates versus marines When reading the book it sure felt like most of the book were about the pirates rather than the marines but thinking about it afterwards there were indeed quite a bit marine action as well so maybe this was just my impression.After managing to get some order on Avalon and have some hopes for the future a grouping of pirates rudely crash the party, abduct
I really enjoyed this book A single company of Terran Marines stranded on the planet Avalon, a backwater planet in a backwater sector on the edge of the Terran Empire, find themselves cut off from that Empire when it starts to collapse under the weight of own internal corruption The characters are believable, the action sequences well written, and the socio economic political implications are fascinating the characters are left with the task of building a new society out of the shattered re I really enjoyed this book A single company of Terran Marines stranded on the planet Avalon, a backwat
I liked it better than the first book, but there were still some major problems.Several characters are either newly introduced or get bigger parts in the narration, which makes the storyvaried and smooths out many bumps the first book had Unfortunately most of the character development is constrained on the none Marine characters, making the titular protagonists still dull but dashing.The opposition is still Evil and mean, but their leader actually has some interesting traits that could m I liked it better than the first book, but there were still some major problems.Several characters are either newly introduced or get bigger parts in the narration, which makes the storyvaried and
