Product Description

Product Description

The first three complete novels in the bestselling Crimson Worlds series (over 275,000 sold) in one discounted collection.

Marines (Crimson Worlds I)

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?

--------------------------

The Cost of Victory (Crimson Worlds II)

The Third Frontier War is raging, and all across human-occupied space worlds are burning. Massive battlefleets struggle for dominance and kilometer-long war ships exchange thermonuclear barrages.

Battered in the early years of the war, the Western Alliance is resurgent. The brilliant Admiral Augustus Garret leads the Alliance fleet from victory to victory, taking the war to the very heart of the enemy empires. And on the ground, Colonel Erik Cain, hero of the Marine Corps, leads his crack troops again into combat, seeking the final battle.

In the background, the secretive intelligence agencies of the despotic Superpowers plot and scheme, using their own soldiers as pawns in the great game for control of space. But the final battle will be fought in the reddish sands of a backwater world, and the prize will be the staggering secret that has lain hidden in a remote cave for untold centuries.

All the Powers struggle for the ultimate victory, but at what cost?

---------------------------

A Little Rebellion (Crimson Worlds III)

Crimson Worlds Book III The Third Frontier War is over, and the Western Alliance is triumphant. All across human-occupied space, colony worlds celebrate the coming of peace.

But peace is an elusive dream, and more trouble is brewing. The war was expensive, and the economies of the Superpowers, always fragile, are on the verge of total collapse.

The Directorate, the shadowy intelligence organization that has become the true power behind the Alliance government, plans to strip the colonies bare to pay the costs of war. Already, they are tightening their control over the freewheeling colonial governments. And the Marine Corps faces total destruction at the hands of the worst traitor in its history.

But the colonists are a different breed than the passive mob on Earth, and they have no intention of meekly surrendering their hard won freedoms. On worlds all across the frontier, plans are hatched and weapons hoarded. And in taverns and meeting halls the words of an ancient text are uttered in hushed tones. A little rebellion, now and then, is a good thing.

More About the Author

I currently live in New York City, and I've been reading science fiction and fantasy for just about as long as I've been reading. My tastes are fairly varied and eclectic, but I'd say favorites are military and dystopian science fiction and epic fantasy, usually a little bit gritty.

I write a lot of science fiction with military themes, but also other SF and some fantasy as well. I like complex characters and lots of backstory and action. Honestly, I think world-building is the heart of science fiction and fantasy, and since that is what I've always been drawn to as a reader, that is what I write.

I've been an investor and non-fiction writer for a long time, a fiction author more recently. When I'm not writing I enjoy traveling, running, hiking, reading. I love hearing from readers and always answer emails. I think you stop growing as a writer if you stop listening to readers.

Among other things, I write the bestselling Crimson Worlds series.

I have found these books a great read.

My kindle is with me on my commute when I generally find I need a good bit of escapism. As such, a good piece of sci-fi fiction is hard to find. Enjoy the book, enjoy the heroism, but couple that with the realism that true command entails responsibility of those beneath you.

Anyway, check this out I'm not going to ruin any of the story but go for what we would once have called a ripping yarn!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great read! 9 Nov 2013
By Swamp - Published on Amazon.com

Couldn't put my reader down. Great character development. At first, I couldn't imagine how Cain could be the focal point of such an epic story. He didn't have to be. Jay Allen masterfully managed to develop the personalities of a cadre of sub-heros that I found myself immediately cheering for them in the same manner as I cheered for Eric Cain. The final chapter left me on a search for a sequel. Bring on collection II.

3.0 out of 5 stars but I got a little tired of the the stark contrasts between the good guys (who could do no wrong) 23 Aug 2014
By CRN - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The stories were enjoyable, but I got a little tired of the the stark contrasts between the good guys (who could do no wrong), and the bad guys (who were purely evil). With a little better character development, these would be much better books. As well, I got a little frustrated that the author seems to think anyone would launch nuclear weapons at a planet from space, rather than using kinetic weapons which would be easier and clearly superior. That being said, I might read others in the series as I did enjoy the books.

4.0 out of 5 stars good read 23 Nov 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com

Well written. Could have used more editorial review, as several times Holms and Garret names were accidentally reversed. Outside of these minor flaws, the books were enjoyable. I will definitely look at acquiring further books in the series to read.
