This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?
Someone interested in a view of the effects of being stuck with taking in a bunch of foreign refugees who don’t want to integrate.
I've liked most of the CORPS series. Pretty much only tied to the series by Earth's demise, no Marine Corps involvement. This was basically a maybe 2 hour story stretched out to 11 1/2 hours. Nuttall had a story, didn't know where to put it & was boring as heck for all but a few minutes.
What could Christopher G. Nuttall have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
Kept it out of the Empire's Corps series. Reduced it to a short story
Which scene was your favorite?
About 10 1/2 hours into the book, cops were allowed to carry firearms & use them to eliminate the main threat.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Any additional comments?
I'll be asking for my money back on this one. If the series continues, I hope it stays based on the marines coping with the loss of the empire.

CG Nuttall is an autobuy for me. Love Warspite and Empire Core series, but as this is one of those offworlds stories (not Commonwealth) I think you can skip it. Not sure that it advances the universe as much as some of the other side stories have and frankly the overall story dragged- unusually for a Nuttall storyline. It does tackle a very relevant social political problem we are all dealing with- so the exploration of theory was interesting.

although well performed I really found this book hard going it felt forced you have nothing to invest in the characters found myself nodding off between chapters sorry chris bit swing and a miss
Great series but boring story this time - found my mind kept wandering off - not a patch on others in the series. Almost gave up on it multiple times. However I'm eagerly looking forward to next in series regardless.
