The sequel to The Empire's Corps.
Six months ago, Colonel Edward Stalker and his Marines were abandoned on Avalon, left to fend for themselves as the Empire withdrew from the Rim. Since then, Avalon has been isolated from the settled universe... until now.
As a mysterious pirate organisation attempts to take over Avalon, the Marines find themselves struggling against a shadowy figure with dreams of power, while a young civilian is kidnapped and press-ganged into a pirate crew. They're fighting to preserve something of the Empire's order in the wake of its departure, but the pirates appear to have far greater resources and a plan that seems unstoppable.
The Empire is gone. What will take its place?

great book, good series
Clear Story Line
This is a sound space adventure. Very enjoyable.
Development of a good second book in the series. Builds upon the earlier work.
From military assignment to interstellar vision.
This book does not suffer from the shortcomings of many space adventures: too many characters, too much detail, too little plot. Congratulations on a good solid space adventure.
