Product Description

You Should Never Speak Truth To Power…

The Galactic Empire is dying and chaos and anarchy are breaking out everywhere. After a disastrous mission against terrorists on Earth itself, Captain Edward Stalker of the Terran Marine Corps makes the mistake of speaking truth to power, telling one of the most powerful men in the Empire a few home truths. As a result, Captain Stalker and his men are unceremoniously exiled to Avalon, a world right on the Rim of the Empire. It should have been an easy posting…

Well, apart from the bandits infesting the countryside, an insurgency that threatens to topple the Empire’s loose control over Avalon, and a corrupt civil government more interested in what it can extort from the population than fighting a war. The Marines rapidly find themselves caught up in a whirlwind of political and economic chaos, fighting to preserve Avalon before the competing factions tear the world apart. They’re Marines; if anyone can do it, they can.

The battle to save the Empire starts here.

Having previously read the first 3 parts of the Ark Royal series, I thought I should try the Empires Corps series, especially since I enjoyed Christopher Nuttall’s work so much, and I wasn’t disappointed.
The first novel in the Empires Corps – First to Fight, is a brilliant read, with great action, clever and articulate dialogue, and my favourite thing of all from this series, some awesome Easter Eggs in the text. What do I mean by this? Things like the Marines using a sonic screwdriver, Edward E. Smith being one Professors who does a quick spot at the start of a chapter (As in E.E. (Doc) Smith – one of my all-time favourite Sci-Fi Authors!!), there are references to Star Wars, I'm pretty sure Firefly(?), just all sorts of things. Christopher Nuttall is obviously a huge Sci-fi fan, and a purist, and to pay homage to all the geniuses that have gone before, he has ‘hidden’ little things in the book for readers to find.
But on top of all of this, there is a sensational story.
This is a story about a Unit of Marines, led by Edward Stalker. Stalker makes the mistake of telling those in authority the truth one day (haven’t we all made that mistake??) and it goes badly for him, he is exiled to the outer rims of the Galactic Empire, to a little rim world called Avalon.
It's here, that he and his unit of Marines set up, and face off against the unknown dangers to take control of the planet (well let the Government take control anyway). And it's from there that the fun really starts – sorry no Spoilers though  Go and read the book, it's worth it!!
Nuttall writes with a captivating and compelling style making his work easy to read, and also very hard to put down.

I got this one last year and have read up to book 10 in the series. Well worth the time and money. The action is fast paced, love how each chapter gives a small info packet so the reader can get a feel for the background without paragraphs of infodumps in the main text.
The characters are believable and the storylines are well paced and plotted out.

Nice read of an old school space opera. Good characters and a believable story. Not very good technical hard science if that is a requirement.
