Synopsis

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.

Not bad.

At first I thought this would be a military Sci-fi in the mold of starship trooper. But it's not really. More like a war rebellion story with focus on what happening around a few characters. Still quite good.

Annoying gramatical and spelling errors
May 30th, 2015
I liked the story and characters. The bizarre and frequent use of commas instead of periods between sentences was very distracting. A decent editor could have made a world of difference. I will not be purchasing any further books by this author.

Really enjoyed the trilogy. The only downside were the incredible amount of spelling and grammar errors that kept popping up. Someone needs a real editor and not just rely on spell check programs...

Good book but for the typos
November 1st, 2014
So this actually contains the first 5 books of the series. Anyways, the story was good and the characters remained consistent. The ending made me roll my eyes and there was quiet a number of typos. But for the most part, I liked the story of Spartan and his adventures with the Space Marines.

While not a fan of military battles (but still loving halo) , Michael does write a good rousing yarn. I will continue on with the series because he has peeked my interest with some good characters.

Agh! My eyes! My brain!

The story line is interesting and the characters have potential. Unfortunately both are overshadowed by poor proof reading, and poor writing, especially when it comes to dialogue. There are so many spelling mistakes and typos in the downloaded edition it was difficult to finish this trilogy. The dialogue was so full of clichés and bad one liners I often found myself wondering if that was on purpose. Unfortunately this has soured me and I will not be reading any more of the many Michael G. Thomas books available through the Kobo store.
