Book Description

Star Crusades Uprising: The Second Trilogy contains the complete text of the novels BATTLE FOR PROXIMA, FALL OF TERRA NOVA and SLAVES OF HYPERION. This epic science fiction series chronicles humanity's first interstellar confederation, torn apart by religious strife and extremism.

BATTLE FOR PROXIMA
In this latest book of the Star Crusades Uprising series the Confederacy is on its knees. Months of war have lost them most of the populated colonies and more will surely follow. Spartan, now a Lieutenant in the Marine Corps has been given his own special platoon, the Vanguards. Using the best weapons and armour in the Confederate arsenal, his unit is thrown back to the Bone Mill to locate information that could change the war.

FALL OF TERRA NOVA
The action shifts to Terra Nova, the shining beacon of humanity and the single most important planet in the Confederacy. Guarding access to this isolated planet is the Anomaly. This mysterious location is the gateway to Terra Nova and the rest of the Confederacy. When the Echidna Union begins moving scores of ships to the Anomaly, Admiral Jarvis must make a critical decision that could win or lose the war. Either she continues Operation Perdition and reclaims the lost colonies of Proxima Centauri, or she sends the fleet to take control of the Anomaly and the route to Terra Nova in one final apocalyptical battle.

SLAVES OF HYPERION
The newly founded Alliance rises from the ruins of the old Confederacy. Scattered groups of the enemy remain, but organised resistance has been crushed. Amnesty has been granted to those still at large and peace has returned to the war torn colonies. Or has it?

This expanding saga includes the Star Crusades Uprising and new Star Crusades Nexus series that follows the story of the Centauri Alliance seventeen years after the end of the Uprising. Novels currently available in the series include:

1.0 out of 5 stars Be careful when ordering this book 1 Mar. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
There seems to be a problem with this trilogy, it advertises books 4-6, but you actually get books 2-4.
This is particularly annoying as I already have books 1-3!

4.0 out of 5 stars enjoyable space opera 29 Dec. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is an enjoyable space opera that sticks with conventional physics majority of the time. Good characters which have developed as the story progresses.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad but not good. 3 Aug. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The spelling and grammatical errors in these series of books is appalling! No excuse can explain away the faults. They take the pleasure out of reading this story. The tale itself wasn't too bad but, was a bit predictable. Too much Spartan and his alliance buddies and not enough of the enemy and their motives.

Could have done with a grammatical review before final publishing. This does not distract from a good read.

The great story continues...

3.0 out of 5 stars Solid military sf. 30 April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A solid if unsuprising story building on the earlier volumes premise.
Somewhat by the numbers - but if youve read books 1 to 3 you know what to expect.

Books 4-6 together comprise about one decent paperbacks worth of reading.
Completes the story - feels fairly satisfying - but never quite achieves the special spark needed to be a great story.
A decent holiday or travel read.
