The death at the end was, superfluous in my opinion. I was kinda ok with the whole not sleeping with my bodyguard thing, don't throw sex at a book to have the opportunity to write soft core porn. But I hated Nimashet's character. Why couldn't she have stayed a bad ass marine? She started out one and then turned into this wishy washy crap female that makes me want to shake her.

Really love your man? Then you damn well fight for him. Whether your opponent is family, society or another woman. You don't decide to just go retire to a farm with a solid partner. What a waste of a character.
Aside from the multitude of typos in this edition of the book, it was an enjoyable installment in the "Empire of Man" series. Unfortunately, I thought it was a trilogy right up until the book ended - so I was a bit disappointed that there is still another whole book to go. With what took place in the last pages, I'm kinda torn about how much I'm looking forward to the last book.

Jul 02, John rated it really liked it Shelves: 4-star , military-fiction , audio , multi-book-story , baen , sci-fi , , borrowed. But in a good way. I am really loving this series, but now I have to wait for the las book to become available from my library. As for the review, if you haven't read the first two books, don't start here. If you have, you have presumably enjoyed them or you wouldn't be reading the third, and so you will enjoy this book also.
This was the first book out of the three I've read so far where I encountered content that I remembered reading before. This volume brings the Prince and his companions to the end of their journey across the planet Marduk. Of course, that doesn't mean they can slack off. Returning to civilization they learn that a plot has been launched against the Empress and her family, This was the first book out of the three I've read so far where I encountered content that I remembered reading before.
Returning to civilization they learn that a plot has been launched against the Empress and her family, and Roger himself has been implicated in the plot, by none other than his own overly ambitious father.

Throne of Stars
This brings the saga to a satisfying conclusion, although I personally would be VERY pleased to see Weber continue the series! We've seen amazing growth from Roger, beyond courage. He's learned to delegate effectively, to strategize efficiently and that he doesn't have to "do it all".
I could go on for pages but I'll conclude by saying that while short by Weber's typical , word books plus only having 3 books this series stands out as being among the best of his work! Jul 25, Jason rated it it was ok Shelves: science-fiction. Who wrote Rodger and who wrote the rest?
I want to know because this is a great story and a fun universe, but prince Rodger is awful. He's always right, the best at everything, and treats relationships like a fourteen year old virgin. I want to like this series but man does Rodger suck.

Mar 27, minz rated it really liked it. Lots of action, unpredictable, practical and best of all when the author started ranting about the technology an editor cut him off after a half page. Dec 07, Christopher rated it it was ok. Humans encounter almost-aliens and either kill them or conscript them to kill other almost-aliens. But now they're on boats.

I love the interactions between the officers and the NCOs Onward to the next book! Nov 13, Chooch Jewell rated it really liked it. The ending was very interesting. Oct 28, frank griffin rated it it was amazing. This book left nothing hidden and finished the series with no unanswered questions. Sep 18, Walt O'Hara rated it really liked it Shelves: science-fiction. This is my second attempt at a David Weber series-- the first being the Safehold series, which created such a poor opinion that I abandoned it mid-read. I probably should have started there. Anyway, with the metaphorical bad taste in my mouth after Safehold I tried the March To the Sea 2 in the Empire of Man series since, well, the library had it in and it looked interesting.
I'm very glad I did! This is more or less a review of the series less the first book, the events of which I picked up from the rest of the easily enough. March to the Sea is the 2nd novel in the story of Prince Roger and his entourage of bodyguards and staff after they crashlanded on Marduke, a backwater planet in Imperial Space.
Empire of Man
Roger realizes they are in a wilderness on a hostile planet with only one spaceport that is very likely in hostile hands after collusion with a competing empire, the Saints, is proven. The Prince and company will have to seize the spaceport and commandeer a ship to escape from Marduke. Unfortunately it's on the OTHER side of the planet, and they will have to march their across a wilderness of various tribes and cultures of the Mardukans, a giant race of four armed natives.
Along the way they face two barbarian hordes-- in the first book and in the second. They encounter civilized Marducan cities once over the mountains of the first book and train them in the art of warfare-- initially with pikes and then with rudimentary rifles. In March to the Stars , Roger and his diminishing company of bodyguards use their alliance with a rudimentary industrial city state Quern's Cove to create a small fleet of ships capable of sailing across the ocean to the continent with the spaceport and dealing with the ship-killing giant sea creatures on the way.
On the far continent they encounter a cannibal cult, mountain tribes, settle a war and take on the star port.
