The Golden Kingdomby Jeremy Jaynes
"Law Martial"... even the name sounded wrong. Something drummed up by the media to explain Marines without boundaries, no laws holding them back, and only their consciences stopping them from going too
"Try to save them and get everyone, including yourself, killed" - Some of Gunny's first words to Sam when he became a Law Martial. But, how could he not try?
"Law Martial"... even the name sounded wrong. Something drummed up by the media to explain Marines without boundaries, no laws holding them back, and only their consciences stopping them from going too far.
Sam never had any intention of becoming a soldier, but when these enormous golden domes appeared on every continent, what was he to do? With half of North America encased in a Dome his natural instinct was to help those in need, to stop the inhuman creatures streaming from the Domes, and to keep the human monsters from taking advantage of a world on the cusp of collapse.
Renny, however, never signed up for anything so noble. In fact, she never signed up. She was just a girl, one who knew right from wrong. Granted, she might be a little impulsive and makes for the worst kind of soldier. But together, she and Sam fight to keep the world from falling. They fight to save their home. They fight to make people's daily lives seem just as mundane and normal as before the Domes ever arrived.
But, their story is far from mundane. What they'll learn of the Domes and the wonders inside will become a thing of legends. This is their story - The story of the Martials and The Golden Kingdom - A story which will impact the world for all of time.

What a great Sc-Fi book and what a great movie it would make. The characters seem so real and likeable and what an interesting story. I will be glad when the next book comes out. I cannot wait to read it.
Had the chance to pick this book up at Chicago Comic Con 2011 from the author's booth. Definitely an enjoyable read. The characters were fun and believable and the story had some great plot points and big time curveballs. Looking forward to where the author takes the story in the second book.
