Publisher's Summary

Earth has fallen - and humanity is holding its breath, waiting for the next blow to fall. On Terra Nova, Earth's oldest colony world, chaos and anarchy are threatening to break out, with total collapse only one disaster away. In a desperate attempt to save the rest of the empire, the planet's governor has summoned the leaders of the Core Worlds to Terra Nova, in hopes of sharing power and preventing civil war. But dark forces are on the move, intent on ensuring that the conference fails. As the first strands of a deadly plot are uncovered, Imperial Marshal Glen Cheal finds himself fighting to uncover the plot before it is too late. Meanwhile, on her own mission to save the last best hope for peace, Specialist Belinda Lawson of the Terran Marine Corps is plunged into a nightmare where she can no longer trust her own mind, while her decisions will save or damn the Empire. Failure isn't an option. But success may not be an option, either....

A Series Review

I wish that I would be able to edit my review of the first book in the series to add the thoughts I am about to state here.

The series title 'The Empire''s Corps' is a poor choice for this series. This is not a series about a space marine corp. Battle does occur often in the series, but the storyline is about the fall of civilization across multiple light years in distance and why it fell. Each book focuses on one reason the civilization fell and the reason is mostly viewed through the eyes of a small set of exiled Marines. I would have named the series 'Professor Leo Caesius, The Waning Years of Empire (banned)'. Yes, it is a long title but it is what the series is about.

This is a socio-political treaties in a very fun read. You may not agree with the conclusions stated in this series, although it seems to be common sense and seen in our own history. This should not take away from the enjoyment of the books. The characters are rich and Nuttall builds them in a way that they are sympathetic. I care enough about the characters to feel said when they are harmed or killed. The action is fun, and many times the action is unique.

If you love dystopian, apocalyptic, military and/or politics you will love these books. This series is not hardcore science fiction. I am very happy to have listened to the 9 books.
