Good Military Sci-Fi,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: No Worse Enemy (The Empire's Corps Book 2) (Kindle Edition)
This is the second in the series of Empire's Corps and an improvement generally. The first one was good but perhaps a little bit black and white. This adds a bit of nuance that helps the overall story and makes it far more readable. It's still straight forward military action, but the characters have been better fleshed out and the backstory has more depth.
Essentially Avalon has now been abandoned by Earth to it's own devices. This has allowed a government to form and the fledgling amalgamation of worlds to create a commonwealth. Of course this also allows pirates to proliferate and various factions to start to maneuver for political and financial gain. In this story the marines are called upon to tackle the threat from a nascent pirate/military fleet which seems to be determined to create a new empire in a rather unpleasant way.
There's plenty of action, definitely adult themes with regard to the treatment of women by the bad guys and the start of a story that presumably will grow as the series progresses.
Nuttall has again demonstrated that he can write well and this is a decent taut and enjoyable book of this genre. Well recommended if you like this type of story.
One word of caution. There is sex involved albeit not graphically, however for young people this might be the kind of thing they read.
