Publisher's Summary

Erik Cain joined the marines to get off death row. The deal was simple; enlist to fight in space and he would be pardoned for all his crimes.
In the 23rd Century, assault troops go to war wearing AI-assisted, nuclear-powered armor, but it is still men and blood that win battles. From one brutal campaign to the next, Erik and his comrades fight an increasingly desperate war over the resource rich colony worlds that have become vital to the economies of Earth's exhausted and despotic Superpowers.
As Erik rises through the ranks he finally finds a home, first with the marines who fight at his side and later among the colonists - men and women who have dared to leave everything behind to build a new society on the frontier, one where the freedoms and rights lost long ago on Earth are preserved.
Amidst the blood and death and sacrifice, Erik begins to wonder. Is he fighting the right war? Who is the real enemy?
Now Included: A sneak peak at Crimson Worlds II: The Cost of Victory. Read the first three chapters, immediately following the end of Marines in this Kindle edition.

Interesting enough bit very predictable.

The book starts off as a very intriguing story but soon becomes rather predictable, with conversations that come across as a little forced and without flow.

You've got to love the Marines

I think this was an excellent book the technoligy and social landscape for the time line was very well thought out and being an Aussie vet and a military buff I can see and understand how the world could end up like this . Very believable . I have used the audio version of this book and was impressed . The only thing I could suggest is to have a female do the female voices it's hard to imagine a beautiful woman with that creepy voice . And yes I've just got the next one.
