March to the Stars (Empire of Man #3)
Oh my gosh, what a great book! The ending was so emotional because we thought it was going to be easy/peasy and it was awful! I could do without all the nitty gritty about why this metal was used instead of this one. But otherwise a great book. I'm going immediately to the next book in the series because I have just got to find out what happens next.

They finally made it across the planet...well mostly.This is a case of , "we're almost there". I read volumes 1, 2, and 3 of this series one after the other during a trying time when I was spending a lot of time in hospitals. They are good enough to occupy your mind and tell a mildly interesting story. ...more

The Story: The company must cross the sea and brave sea monsters in order to get Prince Roger to the space port and eventually back to his mother the Empress.
Any problems with the book? The author tries to explain why the chaplain is a Satan worshiper and why that is a good thing... with tongue firmly in cheek. It's not a big problem in the book but it had to be ...more
I am not sure who screwed/poisoned the brew, but this would have made a wonderful trilogy had the writers remaining on the original plot-line: Roger gets to the port, has a tough fight until enough of the Port folk understand Roger is a better alternative to Saint forces, so they help him take the port. Then Roger could go 'home', have his talk with mother (which does NOT even need ...more
This is a 4- book series. March Upcountry, March to the Sea, March to the Stars, and We Few. The planet, its natives, and its wildlife is as much a character as is Prince Robert. Other reviewers have described the story. It is a good series. For those who aren't gung ho military science fi ...more
