This review is from: We Few (March Upcountry) (Hardcover)
This is the final instalment (to date) of Weber and Ringo's Regiment of Bronze series.
Roger McClintock and his personal protection had finally made it across two continents and an ocean to the sole Imperial outpost on Marduk where they'd obtained transport off world.
All too few had survived the exceptionally violent wildlife and equally friendly natives, but some had and those natives became true believers in the cause of Roger's survival. The ones Roger and his people had left alive anyway...
Now all Roger and his all-too-few fellow travellers had to do was persuade those who only knew the playboy prince and didn't believe he could change as much as he had that he could be emperor. The proof would be unpleasant for all involved.
Roger's mother, the Empress was under the thumb of the real conspirators leaving only Roger's ability to win allies to free her from the horrors of her incarceration.
Jointly written by Weber and Ringo, the series as a whole and this in particular show a degree of grittiness rare in Weber's individual writing, an undoubted influence of Ringo's time in the military. This is an intense and page turning read.
