This book completes the entire "Prince Roger series" here at Audible. I requested this book about 3 weeks ago, and Audible picked it right up.. Audible listens to it's customer's recommendations (Unlike some other audio book sites)
"March to the Stars" is actually book 3 of the complete series, but it was the last one that Audible needed to complete the series here.
Ok, Ok, Ok, about the book itself... some have said "You can only fight so many barbarian hordes and have so much frustrated love", and I agree with that, however, Ringo and Weber pull it off so it doesn't seem like a constant repetition of the same stuff book after book, and book 3 really sets the stage for the final book (We Few).
I talked to John Ringo at this year's Dragon*Con and he told me they were trying to get away from the "March to the Everything" titles, which is why the last book is named "We Few" (Ringo has put out SIX books so far in 2006.. and for us Ringo Fans, I asked him to "Write Faster" ;).
I actually read the reviewer's copy some time back, and then snagged the Audio Book here when it came in, and listened to it... it's good enough to "read" twice.
Some parts can be a bit confusing if you aren't paying attention, especially when many different "Tribes" get involved, but it's Military Sci-fi and "Out of the box thinking" at it's best (Which is what we expect from both Ringo AND Weber)... the fact that the authors can keep all this complicated storyline untangled and understandable speaks to their writing ability.
WELL worth the credit!

Wow! What a great find! Don’t you just love it when you try the first book in a series and you turn out to LOVE IT? Well that is exactly what happened here with me. I could not wait to download the next book, and they are all nice a long (so you get a lot of ‘bang for your buck.’) All of these prince Roger books are the kind of ‘long’ that goes by fast. There is plenty of satisfying action and the character development if great too. You really get to love each character and see what happens to them. I highly recommend each and every book in this series…If you like the first book your will like them all.

As the group continue their trek, their journey's end is within sight, But between here and that port there are still some adventures to be had. Love gained and love lost. Friends gained and friends lost. New foes and new allies.The book called upon my emotions. The joy, the horror, the anticipation, and the heart-breaking sadness all induced and coaxed by the writings and plots of this ongoing saga.I now understand why some use the phrase "space opera". It truly is. This ain't no fairytale for the young of mind, but it is for the older ones who still enjoy a great story packed with "epic". I have enjoyed this book and indeed this series. Stefan Rudnicki's ability to bring to life the story, the characters is such that at times I had to remind myself that there was only 1 actor voicing.It was my pleasure to lose so many of my sleeping hours listening to this wonderful book. Thank you for sharing your artistry.
I very much enjoyed this "Prince Roger" series and have listened to it more than once.
For fans of epic science fiction this is a good buy - although the emphasis is more on low tech than high tech.
