Overview

Galactic Corps: Book Two of the Inheritance Trilogy by Ian Douglas

War is forever

The people on Earth no longer remember how the human race was nearly obliterated centuries earlier during the terror visited upon them by the merciless Xul. But the Star Marines, thirty thousand light years from home, know all too well the horror that still lives.

In the year 2886, in the midst of the intergalactic war that has been raging nonstop for nearly a decade, the unthinkable has occurred. Intelligence has located the gargantuan hidden homeworld of humankind's dedicated foe, the brutal, unstoppable Xul. The time has come for the courageous men and women of the 1st Marine Interstellar Expeditionary Force to strike the killing blow. But misguided politics on an Earth that no longer supports their mission could prove the Marine's greatest enemy—as they plunge bravely into the maelstrom of conflict . . . and into the heart of a million-year-old mystery.

The running theme of these novels are 'Human's get hammered by aliens - but make friends with other aliens - and then beat the crap out of the aliens who hammered them with help from new alien friends.' Sounds like it might get trite, but it doesn't. It's a plausible scenario and makes for a good read. The only slightly odd progression of this series is in how the characters change from book to book as time marches on. Since many characters are descendants of previous characters it can get a bit confusing if you don't write down who is who where and when as you read through the series. Ian Douglas makes an interesting blend of high-tech and life in the Marines of the future worth your time. My only complaint - and it's minor - is occasionally a tad too much discussion of politics goes on. Even though politics will prey on the use of the military to support their own agenda, even politicians aren't that stupid when faced with annihilation of the human race - but don't read too much into that - just an observation that probably won't bother anyone but me. Any Sci-Fi buff is going to spend many an hour enjoying this book.

Okay story for one or two books. Not a great read and it drags on to long.
