Publisher's Summary

The sequel to The Empire's Corps.
Six months ago, Colonel Edward Stalker and his Marines were abandoned on Avalon, left to fend for themselves as the Empire withdrew from the Rim. Since then, Avalon has been isolated from the settled universe... until now.
As a mysterious pirate organisation attempts to take over Avalon, the Marines find themselves struggling against a shadowy figure with dreams of power, while a young civilian is kidnapped and press-ganged into a pirate crew. They're fighting to preserve something of the Empire's order in the wake of its departure, but the pirates appear to have far greater resources and a plan that seems unstoppable.
The Empire is gone. What will take its place?

stereotypical military science fiction

I gave this series a shot. I must admit that I enjoyed the first book, but I understood what I was in for after the second one.

the narrator fits the text, with the voice and tones of the disillusioned old veteran

all the characters are depth-less, stereotypical and interchangeable

the overall world is basic, superficial and unbelievable.

at no time are we in any doubt that the heroes will win.

I noticed the influence of Robert A Heinlein in the powered armors and marine mentality, which was the only bit that stood out as being really elaborated in the story, and in turn being the cause of the heroes overwhelming superiority.

one positive point I will give the author, which is why I gave the book two stars, is the non idealistic, honor based warfare ethos the marines live by. They are out to win, to kill as many of the enemy, by any means necessary...

The style is very repetitive, I slugged my way through two books, but just cant face listening the next 7 or 8 in the series...
