Despite the escape from Meridian - and a strike at the heart of Wolfbane - enemy forces are still advancing on all fronts. The Commonwealth, worn down by a year of hard fighting, is reaching the end of its tether while Admiral Singh, having secured control of Wolfbane, is searching for the breaking point that will shatter the Commonwealth once and for all. Time is needed, time to bring new weapons and tactics into service, but time is the one thing the Commonwealth doesn't have.
Now, with enemy forces closing on the industrialized world of Corinthian - Admiral Singh's former base of operations - Colonel Stalker decides to make a stand. The Commonwealth will meet its enemies on the ground and destroy them...or die trying. They will not pass as long as a single marine remains alive.
But how much of Corinthian and the Commonwealth will survive the nightmare to come?

Like all the other books in this series it was fun and enjoyable. With little references to other sci-fi authors. For example the character Jelal appears to be named after a character from starship troopers.

Although I found the book enjoyable the writing style has something to be desired and a lot of the main characters are somewhat two dimensional. The author reuses phrases a lot and often repeats things. The repatriation is ok at the start of the book as it allows the book to be read by someone without them having read the previous book as it give a hasty introduction to the characters but it can become annoying further into the story.

So if you are looking for a deep work of fiction then this is not the book for you. But if you are after a fun sci-fi military romp then I would definitely recommend it.

A Land Battle

I have enjoyed this series since book one, and here we are already at book twelve. I think is the best series by Nuttall; he has three or four series ongoing.

The war between the Commonwealth and Wolfbane has been going on longer than either side had anticipated. Both side are having equipment and personnel problems. Admiral Singh is now the governor as well as military leader of Wolfbane.

Colonel Stalker, Commander of the Commonwealth’s military, tells his officers the Commonwealth will fall in the next two years due to lack of equipment, combat spaceships and the falling apart of the Commonwealth’s worlds. He has designed a desperate battle plan in a win or lose situation. He plans a land battle on the industrialized world of Corinthian. Admiral Singh was once in Command of Corinthian so Stalker anticipates she will take risks to retake Corinthian. Stalker will command this battle himself, and, my favorite character, General Yannie will command Division One.

The book is well written. Nuttall does an excellent job in writing battle scenes. His description brings the battle to life including all the carnage of battles. The pace is fairly fast and the action is non-stop. Nuttall continues to develop the key characters. Nuttall’s battle tactics and strategies left something to be desired. Oh well, I am an armchair strategist.

Jeffrey Kafer does an excellent job in narrating the series. I am pleased that the same narrator has done the entire series.

It was good to see Nuttall get back to his great story telling

The book was well rounded and tie seamlessly into the previous story lines without too much repetitiveness. His character development continues with a greater understanding of several surrounding individuals that was reminiscent of his earlier books.

The best of the last four. Enjoy
