5.0 out of 5 stars An action-packed epic, 5 Dec. 2011
By 
This review is from: Siege of Titan (Star Crusades Uprising Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
Michael G. Thomas begins his epic of a futuristic gladiator caught up in interstellar warfare with "Siege of Titan," Book 1 of the Star Crusades series.

The book drops us in the middle of the action as it opens with the main character battling two female gladiators in an illegal, unlicensed pit that is "a pantomime of blood and showmanship."

It is the 7th year of the war. Spartan is a pit fighter extraordinaire attempting to buy his way out of indentured servitude, when he is arrested for accidentally killing an ATU officer.

Now Spartan faces a choice: he can either spend 20 years in prison or commit to ten years of military service. He picks the latter and is sent with a group of marines to the planet Proxima Prime, where insurgents are fomenting a violent religious war. The marines train while traveling, and we enter a realistic world of war barges, scarred battleships, futuristic weapons systems and military maneuvers.

As the warships are summoned to the planet's defense, a bloodbath follows, many twists occur, sinister secrets are revealed, and the ultimate fate of Proxima Prime rests in the battle-scarred hands of Spartan and a small band of marines.

Spartan is a reluctant hero, but he is the perfect protagonist for what promises to be an entertaining series.
