    One thought on “Star Marines”

    1. This one gets a 4 star rating, but I must admit it would be a slightly lower 4 than the last book in the series Where the first two novels revolve mostly around a John Garroway this one picks up some hundreds of years later.We are still following members of the Garroway family as we were in the Heritage Trilogy a series I need to reread as I didn t get into it well the first time The story here is good There is plenty of action and the term space opera fits it well We are introduced to a race or [...]

    2. Both trilogies are a good readlots of action and interesting speculation on how technology will affect humanity.

    3. I bought this item from Borders Bookstore some time ago This book was epic in its scale, and the author has a way of drawing you into his scenarios via his vivid descriptions This Trilogy story follows a lineage, tracing the male ancestry of the Garroways, a military family and it shows how a writer can create a very interesting legacy, while showing cool technological advancements from one book to the next Gunnery Sergeant Travis Garroway is the main hero and his uncle, General Garroway, is als [...]

    4. Je vais prendre le temps de faire un commentaire parce qu la fin de la 2 me trilogie, cette s rie m accroche de plus en plus Star Marines est peut tre mon pr f r des 6 Est ce parce que je deviens petit petit citoyenne de lecture de cet univers et m y sens de plus en plus confortable en anglais avec le vocabulaire, les armes, les batailles C est un univers qui s tend dans toute la galaxie avec des distorsions vitesse temps si j ai bien compris , de nouvelles technologies tr s bluffantes je ne sui [...]

    5. This is book three of the sequel trilogy to the exciting Heritage Trilogy Set a hundred years further in the future, the books flesh out the backstory significantly and satisfyingly The Marine Corps focused action remains, improved if anything Douglas a pen name for William H Keith writes about battles, troops and equipment with a gritty and realistic tone.Star MarinesThe action now jumps forward a century and a half, but the main characters are still Garroways The Hunters of the Dawn, alerted b [...]

    6. This is the third book in the Legacy Trilogy by Ian Douglas In this one the Hunter s of the Dawn also known as the Xul have sent a ship to attack Earth by sending several asteroids to smash into the Earth s surface thus destroying all traces of mankind The Marines manage to board the Xul spaceship and destroy it but not before it has managed to send several asteroids hurtling toward the Earth The High Guard manages to deflect or destroy all but one It smashes into the Earth and kills billions of [...]

    7. I think this has been the most enjoyable of the six books in this series so far It was nicely paced with plenty of momentous sequences but not just an action slug fest There was good plot development and the background material felt a lot solid and original then some of the previous books that have tended to be repetitive in this regard I really enjoyed how the in system space engagements played out The final strike on the Xul base was starting to seem way to far fetched but did come back to so [...]

    8. A GREAT end to the Legacy Trilogy buying much needed time for Earth in preparation for the return of the Xul race also known as the Hunters of the Dawn The last visit of the Xul culminated in the destruction of interstellar allies and the human race being sent backwards in racial societal ascendance of technology and existence The next trilogy The Inheritance Trilogy will cover the repercussions of this book and bring out the end of the story arc either giving mankind the ascendance it has earne [...]

    9. With the ending of Star Marines, the Legacy trilogy came to a most satisfying conclusion The action sequences throughout the entire series was taut and frightening The book personified what hard science fiction is all about High tech weaponry and law bending physics were than a meal to satisfy the hunger for knowing what the future may hold Looking forward to reading the Inheritance trilogy to see where the Corps and humankind end up in the survival of the fittest galaxy Semper Fi Ian Douglas

    10. This was a decent conclusion to this series I will not keep the books as I do not believe they are worth a reread, but I did enjoy the reading Good escapist literature that you do not have to pay too much attention to I like how the author let the readers know what happened to earlier characters, without bogging the story down with the new cast of characters.

    11. Like the last two books in the series, this is candy, but nice candy Aside from one part where the writer confuses which of the two characters whose last name is Galloway he is writing about or rather, which experiences each had had , it was decently written Just nothing special at all.

    12. Not a complaint, really The detail of the disaster on Earth is overkill, and its not holding my attention.

    13. Best of the bunch Oorah Wrap a history lesson in with Space battle and aliens and getting lucky and, well, I finished the trilogy and get to move on.

    14. Not as good as the first 2 in the series Overall, I really enjoyed this trilogy and enjoy the universe that is being created I look forward to reading the next trilogy.

    15. I have immensely enjoyed this series, but alas fatigue is setting in Six books so farat is a lot to consume and still yet retain interest.

    16. Great book This was I think even better than the previous 5 books There was background and then the final part of the book was a true page turner.
