Erik Cain joined the marines to get off death row. The deal was simple; enlist to fight in space and he would be pardoned for all his crimes.

In the 23rd Century, assault troops go to war wearing AI-assisted, nuclear-powered armor, but it is still men and blood that win battles. From one brutal campaign to the next, Erik and his comrades fight an increasingly desperate war over the resource rich colony worlds that have become vital to the economies of Earth's exhausted and despotic Superpowers.

As Erik rises through the ranks he finally finds a home, first with the marines who fight at his side and later among the colonists - men and women who have dared to leave everything behind to build a new society on the frontier, one where the freedoms and rights lost long ago on Earth are preserved.

Amidst the blood and death and sacrifice, Erik begins to wonder. Is he fighting the right war? Who is the real enemy?

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brad T. | 10/21/2013

    " Couldn't finish. Not that the writing was bad, but lacked a story 27% of the way in. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Larry Southard | 6/20/2013

    " As a long tine fan of military sci-fi, I found this book hits the sweet spot perfectly. If you enjoy authors like Kratman, Ringo and others of the genre this is a book to add to your bookshelf. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rob | 6/9/2013

    " Pretty much the usual formula here...no surprises. Not a bad book but found it hard to care as the author didn't really do much in the way of character development...dialogue was lacking as well, but taking the book for what it was meant to be, it was entertaining. "

    " Overall, I enjoyed this book. It would have benefited from a lot more character development, and interaction. There was little to no "relationships". If you like military sci/fi and nuclear powered battle armor, its still a good read. "

    " Awesome book only complaint wish he would have described the battles in greater detail kinda felt like he rushed it but cant realyy complain to much since the book was only $2.99 still recomend for sci-fi lovers "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bimble | 3/13/2013

    " best of the series I think, the rest are fine as well, but this is defintiely the one I enjoyed the most. Although it does smack a little of sharpe, with the remarkable advancement through the ranks. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jason | 2/24/2013

    " Good military sci fi. Not too bogged down in detailed military planning or execution. The story is a little over the top for a private to make major over the course of a few battles, but it is still good fun. "
