It is always nice if you can test a series before committing to it fully Shame about this one though.Earth has once again split in different blocks and of course these blocks start fighting Our protagonist is a raw soldier, fighting in some of these engagements on the planet Tombstone against the forces of the Caliphate.And I hated nearly every page of it The setting is so absurdly grim, it might work with a bit of humor but unfortunately seems to be meant to be tak In The 23rd Century, The Superpowers Of Earth Vie For Control Of Occupied Space Darius Jax Is A Senior Officer And Hero Of The Marine Corps, Veteran Of Countless Battles Fought Throughout Occupied Space But Once He Was A Raw Private Fighting His First Battle On A Planet So Deadly, So Hellish, Its Own Occupants Called It Tombstone This Is His Story, Before Fame, Before Glory The Fighting On Tombstone Is Brutal And Deadly, And Jax Must Find His Inner Strength If He Is To Survive As He Struggles Through An Unwinnable War He Learns To Rely On Himself As He Never Has Before, And He Begins To Understand Just What He Is And Is Not Fighting For.Tombstone Is A Novella Of Approximately 24,000 Words, The First Crimson Worlds Prequel, Set In The Years Just Before The Third Frontier War And The Events Described In Crimson Worlds Book I Marines. Tombstone is not long enough to be a book It sof a novella or even a longish story.Since it s in here as a book, I ll take it, to further my annual reading goal.Tombstone is a prequel to the Crimson Worlds series, one of three so far It tells some of the early story of Darius Jax, including his first battle Jax later becomes a major character in the series.The planet Tombstone is not a nice place Exposure to its atmosphere is mo great stuffpretty authentic makes me think of the Jarheads i ve carted around in the past love the real amphib ship names carried into the future, as well as the frequent nods to RAH Starsip Troopers BZ to Jay Allan. A good read.After reading the Marine by the same author I decided to give Tombstone a chance as a prequel and I think it was worth it In some ways both books were similar to Heinlein s Starship Troopers with an emphasis on training, equipment and loyalty. Nice good, fun read just kinda wish it was longer, with a littledetail of his time on tombstone.
