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.

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.Read more ›
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.
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
