You should never speak truth to power…
The Galactic Empire is dying and chaos and anarchy are breaking out everywhere. After a disastrous mission against terrorists on Earth itself, Captain Edward Stalker of the Terran Marine Corps makes the mistake of speaking truth to power, telling one of the most powerful men in the Empire a few home truths. As a result, Captain Stalker and his men are unceremoniously exiled to Avalon, a world right on the Rim of the Empire. It should have been an easy posting....
Well, apart from the bandits infesting the countryside, an insurgency that threatens to topple the Empire's loose control over Avalon, and a corrupt civil government more interested in what it can extort from the population than fighting a war. The Marines rapidly find themselves caught up in a whirlwind of political and economic chaos, fighting to preserve Avalon before the competing factions tear the world apart. They're Marines; if anyone can do it, they can.
The battle to save the Empire starts here.

Nuttall gets better and better
I found the Empire's Corps very engaging. Nuttall's first series, Ark Royal, was above average but showed Nuttall's status as a freshman author. It was good, but a bit strained at times. I bought all 3 books with no regrets, but with no illusions that the books would be perfect. The Emprie's Corps exceeded my expectations, and showed the maturation of a true professional author.
The characters are engaging and believable, and the story is quite good. No sophomore slump here.
I enjoyed the protagonist, the Captain.
Alone. Forgotten. Heroes when nobody was looking.
