Overview

Star Crusades Uprising: The First Trilogy contains the complete text of the novels SIEGE OF TITAN, TEARS OF KERBEROS and FIRES OF PROMETHEUS. This epic science fiction series chronicles humanity’s first interstellar confederation, torn apart by religious strife and extremism.

SIEGE OF TITAN
In the first book of the Star Crusades Uprising series, the bloody struggle is told through the eyes of an illegal pit fighter named Spartan, who is forced to choose between incarceration or military service. Choosing the Confederate Marine Corps over servitude he begins his thirty long weeks of training. Together with his group of marines, they are honed into a force ready to be thrown into the meat grinder on the newest and greatest planet in the Confederacy, Proxima Prime. His term of service will soon become one of violence and carnage, as the entire sector is ripped apart by a brutal and virulent religious movement and its shocking plans.

TEARS OF KERBEROS
The religious insurgency continues to spread through the weakened colonies of the Confederacy. Spartan, now a sergeant in the Marine Corps and his armoured platoon is rushed to the defence of New Carlos on the planet of Prime. The massive city is besieged by the terrifying biomech shock troopers, its fall is imminent. As the battles rage across the continent enemy agents continue to foment revolt throughout the remaining colonies in their struggle to bring the empire crashing down.

FIRES OF PROMETHEUS
The sector is entering a short period of calm. There is peace in Proxima Centauri but for how long? The religious insurgency has already exploded throughout the system and one by one the colonies have seceded from the Confederacy, lured to the offerings of the Church of Echidna. Spartan and General Rivers have vanished and are presumed to have been executed at the hands of their Zealot captors for the murder of the President of Kerberos.

    The original SC series is classic old school mil-sci-fi but with a strong degree of hard science. The fighting is vicious as only a civil war can be. Getting all three sequels in one purchase for 8 bucks is a steal.

    Excellent!

    Really enjoying this series as it explores the growing pains of a civilization experiencing the growing pains of rapid expansion. Only ding on the series I really have is the need for grammar and spellcheck! But that is just a pet peeve of mine. Engaging story lines that keep you turning the pages, exactly what you look for in a book.

    I liked the story and I found that, at times, the action was good. But there are holes in the story and the editing of the book by the publisher is quite shoddy. The publisher really should get their act together in that regard.
