Publisher's Summary

You should never speak truth to power…
The Galactic Empire is dying and chaos and anarchy are breaking out everywhere. After a disastrous mission against terrorists on Earth itself, Captain Edward Stalker of the Terran Marine Corps makes the mistake of speaking truth to power, telling one of the most powerful men in the Empire a few home truths. As a result, Captain Stalker and his men are unceremoniously exiled to Avalon, a world right on the Rim of the Empire. It should have been an easy posting...
Well, apart from the bandits infesting the countryside, an insurgency that threatens to topple the Empire's loose control over Avalon, and a corrupt civil government more interested in what it can extort from the population than fighting a war. The Marines rapidly find themselves caught up in a whirlwind of political and economic chaos, fighting to preserve Avalon before the competing factions tear the world apart. They're Marines; if anyone can do it, they can.
The battle to save the Empire starts here.

Very good but...

Very good performance by the narrator. The story is basically 5 star but slips up slightly in some places at least in my opinion so it's more like a 4.9 stars. Good audiobook looking forward to listening to the next one.

Predictable but still enjoyable book. Well read.

I'll admit it, I liked the Ark Royal series. I liked the way it was read, I liked the way it took the view the US weren't the only major powers in space, and I liked the way it ran.

Now we have a new series by Christopher G Nuttell. At first it seems to be in the same universe, just further along in time, but soon you realise that is not the case. He's essentially borrowed the universe from the other series but with a few changes.

The plot is basic, it's obvious, but it works well. It is paced well and while you can guess what's going to happen, that does not reflect badly on it. The characters work, not totally believable, but not over the top either, it's more pulp sci fi.

The only thing to be aware of is that Nuttell does not understand army ranks, as he continues his mistake from the Ark Royal series by having a corporal as senior to a sergeant. AT first this can confuse the listener, but you get used to it.
