This book is pretty much the same as the rest of the books in this series. I think I liked the first part of the book better than the previous one. The imperial marines have now pretty much run out of high tech weaponry, which I generally do not like so much, but the compensate by teaching the natives to build not so advanced weapons and transports which of course, compared to whatever else exists on the planet, are indeed high tech given the circumstances. I quite liked the see battles with front loaded cannons and old-fashioned broadsides.

Unfortunately we get a bit of the David Weber syndrome in the latter parts of the book where we dive into conspiracy land with talk, talk and some more talk between various parties. I also really really dislike that John and David decided to kill of one of the major characters in the book series. I just hate it when someone you have followed all the time and taken a liking to just get bumped off.

On the whole it is a good book though and the only reason it does not get a higher rating is that the story is not really my favourite kind of story as I have mentioned in the reviews of the previous ones.

This one goes from ship to ship - from K'Vaernen schooners to a spaceship that's far more of a fight than it should have been. Along the way Roger does a little growing up (not much, though), Despreaux runs into serious problems, they find out that their troubles aren't over when they get back home...and mostly, nasty things happen. Quite a few more deaths, and this time it's some of the higher-ups gone (both humans and Mardukans); the "civilization" they contact on the shuttle continent is seriously nasty; etcetera. Cord goes through a lot of changes himself, though - I like Pedi. What this book does is take the mission they've been on through the whole series, escalate it, then make a serious twist in it - Klein-bottle severe twist - and keep them going. There's good bits, but overall I think this is my least favorite of the Prince Roger books. Which means it's only a very good story, not great like the others. ( )

Very good on-planet conclusion, (spoiler) although the chance of having just that type of ship there at the right time is a bit much at the end. ( )

"March to the Stars" is the third book in this series about Prince Roger and the Bronze Battalion. I mentioned in my last review that I hadn't enjoyed book two as much as book one, but that I was going to keep reading the series because my evil twin said the authors redeemed themselves. She was right! I really enjoyed book three!

It's finally time for the crew to cross the ocean and take over the space port. As they cross the ocean they will have to face sea monsters and pirates, and when they reach land things aren't much better! The society they discover performs ritual cannibalism, something that shocks and appals both the humans and their Mardukan friends.

They also discover that they are going to have to cross yet another range of mountains to reach the space port, and that taking the space port may be the least of their problems! Once they receive news of the Galaxy at large they discover that there is an intricate plot against the Queen, and that Prince Roger has been implicated. Now they not only have to get home, they need to clear their names, and save the Queen!

There is one more book in the series, and I can hardly wait to see how they get out of all this mess! ( )
