Product Description

Product Description

The third book set in the best selling Crimson Worlds Universe...

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.

Marines (Crimson Worlds I)
The Cost of Victory (Crimson Worlds II)

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Rebellion 19 Feb 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The third and for me the weakest of the books in this series so far. While the plot is excellent (and I do like the way the story is evolving), the narrative falls down slightly as there's not quite enough detail compared to the two earlier novels. There is some inevitable repetition of events covered in previous books (not everyone might have read those and some back-story is necessary), but I felt the 'fresh-meat' of the book to be a bit lean. The ending especially felt very rushed. Handy hint: the 'big battle' where the good guys win against all odds is the bit we want to read about. The big finale switches abruptly from the hero landing his troops to save the settlers to the end of the battle a week later with a bare sentence to describe the interim period. Not terribly satisfying after wading through all the political machinations of the 'baddies' in the earlier sections of the book... Sometimes months have passed with little more than a few words to tell us what happened: "some months later, Jax and his team were still carrying out hit-and-run operations..." just doesn't cut it IMO...

Also, having become used to armoured infantry tactics it was a bit of a let-down to be cast back to 'conventional' ground warfare. As I have 'some experience' of this type of thing, the resulting skirmishes didn't ring true: even now (in 2013) we have things like attack helicopters with thermal and IR imaging systems and computer-controlled targeting. An interstellar land force with tank divisions but almost no air-assets at all? C'mon... A single Apache helicopter can now take on the role of an entire company of modern tanks - so much so that the very future of armoured units in NATO armies beyond a couple more decades is doubtful. I think the obvious leap-forward could have been made here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book 15 Mar 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I find all Jay Allan books to be real page turners and they leave me really wanting the next installment. There are a few threads running through the series so you are always what is going to happen next.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good read 28 Sep 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The book carries on the series in the same, gripping manner as the earlier books. The fast pace keeps you turning the pages and the action is engaging. Although it does seem to leave you wishing their was a little more substance, the characters are engaging and the plots tie up nicely.
