    Description

    You should never speak truth to power…

    The Galactic Empire is dying and chaos and anarchy are breaking out everywhere. After a disastrous mission against terrorists on Earth itself, Captain Edward Stalker of the Terran Marine Corps makes the mistake of speaking truth to power, telling one of the most powerful men in the Empire a few home truths. As a result, Captain Stalker and his men are unceremoniously exiled to Avalon, a world right on the Rim of the Empire. It should have been an easy posting....

    Well, apart from the bandits infesting the countryside, an insurgency that threatens to topple the Empire's loose control over Avalon, and a corrupt civil government more interested in what it can extort from the population than fighting a war. The Marines rapidly find themselves caught up in a whirlwind of political and economic chaos, fighting to preserve Avalon before the competing factions tear the world apart. They're Marines; if anyone can do it, they can.

    The battle to save the Empire starts here.

    Not Ark Royal

    Got this one because I've enjoyed the Ark Royal series. This disappointed greatly. Must be an earlier series by this author. The story was okay but the author got military ranks all confused. Majors outranked colonels. The name of the civil guard base changed in the middle of the book. There were editing mistakes. This book needed an editor. Also, the spanking scene was weird and the girl's reaction to it was completely nonsensical. This one needs to go back to the drawing board. I might give the next one in this series a try just to see if it improves.

    As for the reader, this gentleman needs to find a new line of work. He mispronounced words. He read the wrong word sometimes, rendering the sentence nonsensical. I had to guess at which word the author meant. His voice inflection was weird. He emphasized the wrong words at the wrong times. He had an odd type of vocal fry where he ended sentences in an extremely choppy manner. It was very annoying. Like this thing was being read by a third grader. For instance, the way he read the phrase "yes, sir" was just weird. Please don't use this reader again.

    If you want something good by this author, go read the Ark Royal series. He must've learned something between this crapfest and those books.

    Nuttall gets better and better

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I found the Empire's Corps very engaging. Nuttall's first series, Ark Royal, was above average but showed Nuttall's status as a freshman author. It was good, but a bit strained at times. I bought all 3 books with no regrets, but with no illusions that the books would be perfect. The Emprie's Corps exceeded my expectations, and showed the maturation of a true professional author.

    What did you like best about this story?

    The characters are engaging and believable, and the story is quite good. No sophomore slump here.

    Which character – as performed by Jeffrey Kafer – was your favorite?

    I enjoyed the protagonist, the Captain.

    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Alone. Forgotten. Heroes when nobody was looking.

    I love the Series and Highly recomend it.

    If you like military SiFy and other series like the Mike Shepard's -- Kris Longknife and Jack Campell's -- Lost Fleet series's you will like this one. So far the Author has written nine books in the series and Audible has only three of them...

    I will quickly pick up all that are added in the future...

    Great Listen!

    You know it's a good read when you park the car but keep listening until you realize you gotta get going. Good dialog, good story, look forward to the next.

    I tried to like it.

    I gave this book an honest effort and listened to it all the way through. Lots of character information, but weak on action. I was hoping that after the characters got built up the action would kick in, but the action that came was not enough to balance out the rest. It’s OK, but nothing I would ever choose to listen to a second time or, sadly, recommend.

    Captivating

    This is book one in a new series. Nuttall is a fairly new author; I read his first books, the Ark Royal trilogy. I see he has now started a series. I enjoyed his trilogy so decided to give the series a try. The Galactic Empire is dying and chaos and anarchy are breaking out everywhere. Our protagonist Captain Edward Stalker spoke the truth to those in power. As a result he and his men are exiled to Avalon, a world right on the rim of the Empire. Avalon is about to collapse from a corrupt government and insurgents, bandits roam freely in the county side. Stalker and his Marines are soon caught up in a whirlwind of events.

    The Empire starts off with a good description of the enormity of the Empire including intricacies of the political scene which seems enormous. Nuttall creates not only an interesting world but an entire universe full of planet inhabited by humans. With hundreds of planetary cultures I can only imagine where the series will go. The book is fast paced, lots of action, suspense and military dialog. There is more character building because it is the first book of a new series. The book is about Marines so there is less Naval space action in this story.

    I understand that Nuttall was born and raised in Edinburgh, Scotland but he is currently living in Borneo with his wife Aisha. This is the first time I have encountered a book narrated by Jeffrey Kafer. He did a good job narrating the book. I will look forward to listening to him narrate other books. If you enjoy military Sci-Fi you will enjoy this book.

    Fall of the Terran Empire

    What a great listen. I enjoyed this story so much I had to listen without stopping. Reminds me of Heinlein,Piper and Chris Bunch mixed together with a dash of David Sherman &Dan Cragg . Military sci-fi at it's best. Already preordered the next two books. If you enjoy this genre then treat yourself to a great listen.

    A great military themed sci-fi

    Some of the best narration I've heard. The storyline follows a marine company and it's commander to a World other than earth where they combat multiple insurgent groups and deal with political challenges they weren't designed to take on.

    Captivating story

    Great storyline and captivating it keeps you interested. My only complaint it has too much graphic sexual content.

    Story with potential

    Gibt es irgendetwas, das Sie an diesem Hörbuch ändern würden?

    The author is obsessed with the marine corp. This in itself would not be so big an issue if it would not result in a nerve racking litany of "the better marines". Don't get me wrong, I have no problem with patriotism but this is simply too much.

    Wenn dieses Hörbuch ein Film wäre, würden Sie ihn sich ansehen wollen?

    Maybe
