really liked it

This is the first book in the great Empire of Man series. John Ringo and David Weber write very well together. While Weber can occasionally bore readers uninterested in every last technological detail, Ringo's presence really keeps that tendency in check. Ringo's humor also adds a lot.

The 4-book story follows Prince Roger's transformation from a spoiled dandy to a rugged war leader as he and a group of marines battle their way across an unknown planet. The series' first couple of books serve as a fascinating and bloody history of warcraft. The foppish prince and the marines engage in battles that grow in complexity as they engage in battle with increasingly developed societies while struggling to reach the planet's remote spaceport. The books divert from this interesting theme in the second half of the series, but they're still very entertaining.

Expect tons of violence and gore. Yay!
