Publisher's Summary

After the disastrous mission to Lakshmibai, the very existence of the commonwealth is called into question by politicians on Avalon. But as the political firestorm mounts, a call for help arrives from Thule, a highly developed world facing a major insurgency in the wake of the empire's collapse. Reluctantly the commonwealth deploys the Commonwealth Expeditionary Force to Thule. But all is not as it seems. The insurgents are receiving support from off-world powers while, bare light years across the border, Wolfbane - another successor state to the vanished empire - is preparing for war - and an old enemy plots her revenge. As the countdown to war begins, the CEF finds itself sinking in a quagmire of bitter hatred. And nothing more than pawns in a very deadly game.

Engrossing

Stalker and the Marines are back on the Commonwealth of Avalon after the disaster on Lakshmibai. This series needs to be read in order as it is written as one long story divided into installments. Not too surprising our heroes fall into the traps set by Admiral Singh and rush to aid the world named Thule.

I am glad to see Jasmine is still in-charge of the Commonwealth Forces. Mandy is in charge of the Avalon government, she was wounded after an assassination attempt. The Commonwealth is at War which came as a surprise to everyone. Our villain Singh is leading the attack on Avalon and Commonwealth. Thule has fallen to Singh along with a large number of the Commonwealth Forces, Jasmine and troops are now P.O.W..

Nuttall moves the story through his well developed characters. The book is full of action; lots of suspense as everything gets worse. This book like so many others ends in a cliff hanger. Jeffrey Kafer continues to narrate the series.

Becoming repetitive.

It's a bummer. I like the series so far but it seems that by now he's just recycling scenes and descriptions. I haven't counted how often we get yet another description of pain and suffering and how powerless the current story teller feels about it. But it seems almost a constant thing.

We get it. Society is falling apart and everybody suffers and the brave Marine Corps soldiers feel powerless.

Can we stop repeating that every five minutes?
