Michael G. Thomas' "Star Crusades: Omnibus Edition" is a not to be missed Sci-Fi collection. This is the whole 5-book collection of this great series and if you like the first in the series, "Siege of Titan" then you do not want to miss the other 4 books in the series... Spartan, Teresa, Marcus, Admiral Jarvis, and the rest of the cast of characters are continuing their fight to save all the planets and their people from being taken over by the terrorist associated with the Church of Echidna and their genetic fighting machines. Will they prevail? Will they uncover who is behind this horrific war of terror? Will all of the favored characters make it through all of their battle? Will any survive? Will they conquer over these horrendous events? Will they...What happens... How does it end...?

To find out, pick up your copy of the 5-book omnibus, it is an out of this world deal at only $9.99. If you like Sci-Fi, if you like the first book in the series "Siege of Titan" then you will not be disappoint getting your copy of all 5 books in this series. The only fault that I found with this series was that it ended. I for one hope Mr. Thomas will someday give us fans a sequel to this remarkable series.

I absolutely loved this series, from starting the first book to finishing the last there was never a point when I was struggling to follow the story line of failing to engage with the characters. For faced paced action that will keep you turning the pages until the end I would advise the full series - I loved being able to keep on through to the next book without having to change on the kindle :)

Kirstyanne Ross author of Old Magick

Below are individual reviews for each book

Book One - Siege of Titan

Thrown the choice of prison or joining the Marines, Spartan sees a way to keep himself from rotting in a cell. But politics and religion are still causing chaos and mayhem throughout, not only the world, but the universe.
Spartan has to make a jump from the illegal blood sports of the underground to the ordered fighting of the marines before he and the rest of his squad mates are sent into the mix. A baptism of fire separates the good from the bad, and the truly brilliant from the good, as the navy station is over taken by the religious Zealots and hostages are treated in the most horrific ways, the marines and their commando counterparts wade through the stations blockades to take part in the battle. I can't wait to see what lies in store for Spartan next!

Book Two - Tears of Kerberos

After reading the first in this series I had to know what happened next to Spartan and Theresa! Although the main story follows Spartan and his quest to help the Confederacy retake the colonies where the Biotechs have taken over, Theresa plays a strong role and even though the pair are split you have to keep reading to make sure they meet up again.

I reckoned this was a good tale and was not disappointed. Below is what I wrote when I finished.

Enjoy.

I really enjoyed the five books that make up this tale. It is well written a flows well. Characterizations are about right for this type of book. High art it is not, a good read it is.
If you like reasonably realistic sci fi that does not rely on a 'magic' to move it along then you will probably like this series.

Having read Legions of Orion and Gates of Cilicia, I purchased Star Crusades Uprising, as a trilogy, expecting an untaxing, pleasant read. However i have never been so frustrated in trying to make sense of a story before. My first impression was that the story had not been proof read before being put on sale. The number of errors ranging from simple grammatical errors, to whole sentences failing to make sense is annoying, I have made 41 notes in the first 7 chapters, so far.
In one chapter, the author attempts to describe the ships' ion drive, he obviously has no idea of the concept and has done no research into the subject.
The personal armour is described as PDS (personal defence suits), then in chapter 6 even ships get PDS but now it means Point defence system. More attention to detail required!
The story may have been written for under 14 age group originally but to make it more adult(?) gratuitous effing and cursing has been added. Not a pleasant addition and totally unnecessary in that context
The author describes himself as a historian, fine, but trying to tie every space manoeuver to something Nelson did at the battle of the Nile is frankly ridiculous.
Sorry but I won't be wasting any more money on this series

A fast pacey read, with more than enough action. Well constructed story lines with believable characters. I am only half way through the first trilogy containing books 1 to 3. Whilst I am enjoying the book I find the constant jumping from one story line to another somewhat distracting. My real gripe though is the number of misprints throughout the book. I,m not sure if this is a result of transposing the original content into the electronic format or whether it was not checked properly at the original print stage. Whichever, it is an annoying fault which is why I have down graded an otherwise 5 star rating to 4. I have noticed this in other Kindle books that I have purchased but this is by far the worst and I do not recall this problem in printed books that I have read. Come on Amazon this problem is not up to your usual high standards.
