Publisher's Summary

In the 23rd Century, war is still hell....
Navy Corpsman Elliot Carlyle joined up to save lives and see the universe. Now he and Bravo Company's Black Wizards of the interstellar Fleet Marine Force are en route to Bloodworld - a hellish, volatile rock colonized by the fanatical Salvationists who desired an inhospitable world where they could suffer for humanity's sins. Their penance could prove fatal - for the Qesh, a strange alien race detected but still mysterious for six decades, have made violent first contact.
Suddenly countless lives depend upon Bravo Company - perhaps even the fate of homeworld Earth itself - as the Marines prepare to confront a vast force of powerful, inscrutable enemies. And one dedicated medic, singled out by an extraordinary act of valor, will find himself with an astounding opportunity to alter the universe forever....

ENCYCLOPEDIA

IT IS TYPICAL IAN DOUGLAS, YOU CAN DEFINITELY RECOGNIZE HIS WRITING STYLE.

THIS BOOK IS LIKE TECHNOLOGICAL AND BIOLOGICAL SOPHONT ENCYCLOPEDIA OF EVERY SCIENTIFIC CONCEPT AUTHOR USED IN EVERY OTHER BOOK OR BOOK SERIES.

IT HAS SO MANY INFORMATIONAL SIDE STEPS, THAT IT FEELS LIKE ENCYCLOPEDIA WITH ELEMENTS OF PLOT.

PS
IT IS WORTH LISTENING!!!

Boring

What disappointed you about Bloodstar?

When I downloaded this book, I expected battle-hardened bad asses fighting enemy alien species. However, I made it about 3 hours into the book, and the only violence involved a clumsy marine breaking his leg on a rock. The author seems more focused on brain chemistry than actual plot development. This book isn't worth your credit, I highly suggest trying a different series.
