Publisher's Summary

War is forever.The people on Earth no longer remember how the human race was nearly obliterated centuries earlier during the terror visited upon them by the merciless Xul. But the Star Marines, 30,000 light years from home, know all too well the horror that still lives.In the year 2886, in the midst of the intergalactic war that has been raging nonstop for nearly a decade, the unthinkable has occurred. Intelligence has located the gargantuan hidden homeworld of humankind's dedicated foe, the brutal, unstoppable Xul. The time has come for the courageous men and women of the 1st Marine Interstellar Expeditionary Force to strike the killing blow. But misguided politics on an Earth that no longer supports their mission could prove the Marine's greatest enemy - as they plunge bravely into the maelstrom of conflict . . . and into the heart of a million-year-old mystery.

What's up with the politics?

I really enjoyed the first in the series (Star Strike) for what it was: a military sci-fi with cool and interesting aliens, where we stick it to the bad aliens, and with lots of details and blowing up stuff and whatnot.

This one still has the pro-Marines focus and is somewhat detailed (though in this book he sticks to make, model, and serial number details - leaving out the ancestry, color, size and number of buttons that were included in the first).

So, why didn't I like it? Because the aliens are no longer fresh or interesting and there was no wondering 'what will they do next' AND there was a huge portion of the book given over to political discussions (bad politicians, bad govt system, bad decisions) and details of the effects of 'global warming'.

You don't pick up THIS story to hear about failed political systems, or environmental degradation - it's like tuning into Battlestar Galactica and watching a interview with a political figure on why the local river is polluted.

The narration is good though.

Galactic Corps - A great read

I stumbled across the Inheritence Trilogy and thought they might be some good books. It started out with Star Strike and now Galactic Corps. I have been entertained and carried along in the battles and deeds of the main characters. I highly recommend the books to anyone who likes great battles and good entertainment.
