What do you get when the path of a girl running-away from a barbaric fundamentalist planet collides with space gypsies? This book. Right here.
The Empire's Corps series continues to delight with a story that takes place in a sector of space a small distance from Avalon and the characters we are already familiar with. The characters are rich, with believable happenings in the grander setting of the collapse of the empire, but prior knowledge of the series is not required -- this book stands completely on its own (until the epilogue, which only connects it to the rest of the series in a brief exchange, so no worries if you haven't listened to them).
I recommend this book to everyone (less those who can't stand solid writing and an equally solid performance). I've listened to everything in this series so far, and have all of the planned volumes pre-ordered at least two titles ahead. The Empire's Corps is simply outstanding!

To be honest I wasn't quite sure on this book at first.
I was missing the Marines and wasn't keen on the direction the was taken the main character
But once we got going I got into it and really enjoyed it.
To summarise, slow starting takes a bit to go going but the finish is strong.

from book none they all diverse and them come back together again. All in the most unique ways and quite topical.
A well narrated story set in a thought provoking universe. The charaters are somewhat stereotypical and simplistic.
Not bad but also not gripping like the last lot. I actually quite enjoyed "when the bough breaks" as a nice side story but I found this one a bit of a chore to get through. Pacing felt a bit off, a bit rushed like this was more cliff notes on what happened to sabina (haven't actually seen her name written) and that there was more he wanted to write about her. That being said I am no expert, certainly not a writer and I think it proves Nutall's mastery of writing in this genre that even his less impressive work is still quite interesting. I eagerly await the next book to get audibled (I am so over reading it for myself) as it looks like we get to go back to the Avalon mob
