Publisher's Summary

Ever since an attempt on his life marooned him with his bodyguards on the hostile planet Marduk, with its unending series of threats, obstacles, and adventures, Prince Roger McClintock has evolved from a spoiled, petulant heir into a true leader of humans and aliens alike.

This third edition to the Prince Roger Series takes the Bronze Barbarians across the Eastern Ocean of Marduk, facing giant sea monsters, pirates, and the barbarian nations that dwell on the other side. Their destination is a spaceport held by humans of questionable loyalties. As Roger comes nearer to making his way home, he learns that his attempted assassination was part of a larger plot. Not all is as it seems on Earth or on Marduk. Fortunately, he's got the Bronze Barbarians and the Basik's Own at his back.

Planet of the scrapes: don't miss the rest of the action in the Prince Roger Series.

What the Critics Say

"The dynamic duo of Weber and Ringo continue Prince Roger McClintock's adventures, which are coming to constitute a military SF classic." (Booklist)
"Parallels with Prince Hal in Henry IV are probably intentional, adding a certain gravitas to the many exceptionally well-done battle scenes....readers can look forward to seeing how the authors will retell Henry V. It should be one hell of a St. Crispin's Day." (Publishers Weekly)

    I like happy endings and realism that is realistic rather than gritty.

    "Great books, except for the boring parts. :)"

    I love the premise, I like the characters, and I find so much to enjoy in this series.

    But... sometimes the characters just go on and on planning battles or discussing polictical machinations... bo-ring. Othertimes, they get into a battle and it just goes on and on and on. These are things I would skim in a real book--maybe the Audible app needs a double-speed function?

    Yet I've really enjoyed this series. The progression of cultures has been fun, and the development and implementation of the Mardukan natives is clever and thorough. Plus, Ringo and Weber aren't afraid to kill off almost anyone, so the stakes are real, and the effect of extended combat on the human troops is realistic and educational.

    "good story"
    Would you consider the audio edition of March to the Stars to be better than the print version?

    I think that the audio format may have been better


    What was one of the most memorable moments of March to the Stars?

    I think the most memorable moment of the book was when roger was able to shock everyone by saying the he had not been the first one to jump to to the other ship


    Which scene was your favorite?

    my favorite scene was when A high priestess of satin explained how her originally catholic home world ended of with satanism as the planetary religion and how different it is from what anyone reading the book would have thought of as satanism


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I found the death scene at the end of the book to be quite sad.


    Any additional comments?

    The only thing that really disappointed me about the book was that for the last two books and most of this one they were working up to the assault on the star port and then when it came it was over in minutes and I while I don't remember for cretin there may not even have been a single shot fired.

    "Solid, as expected."
    Would you consider the audio edition of March to the Stars to be better than the print version?

    Sometimes the narration adds to a story, and in this case it does.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    A few moments of genuine laughter.


    Any additional comments?

    Continues the "saga" well, and I'm looking forward to the conclusion.

    "The best"

    I loved every heart strand tugging and heart pounding moment. Im a big sci fi lover but kind of picky. March to the stars, and all of the Prince Roger series, are the reasons why I love science fiction. The aliens are very believable in many ways but with a lot of nice alien strangeness that you might expect from non terrestrial evolution. the characters and story are beautifly crafted. Im trying to decied if this is the best book I have ever read. Stefan Rudnicki is the best voice tallent I have ever listnend to as well. It's so rare to have a audio book meet and surpass all of my expectations. but this one did. I hope David Weber and John Ringo and Stefan Rudnicki team up again. They have a good thing going.

    "hooked"

    The journey continues for Prince Roger and his marines. There are more grander and better battles to come in this book and continues to follow the same formula which has kept me glued throughout the other books. It is a little sad to see the number of members of Prince Rogers group dwindle and we do lose some good characters. However, overall this series just keeps getting better as it goes on.

    "The 4 book series is simply Outstanding!!"

    The 4 Book Series is Simply Outstanding!....

    I've listened to the series on 3 occasions and enjoyed it each time!

    Highly Recommended to anyone who enjoys action and adventure when seemingly impossible odds are in play.

    Stephen Rudnicki's narration is wonderful too!

    "Marduke isn't a Dog"

    And Dogzart is a huge lizard. Prince Roger is an unlikely hero and jarheads even Basick jarheads aren't usually my favorite characters. And the natives are giant 4 armed Scummies covered in slime??? Endless battles with 100,000 or more dead Scummies as the result can get pretty repetitive and the loss of some heroes we come to like is tough to take.

    But we are finally out of the jungle and across the sea where Scummies are clothed in Muslim garb as the fighing and killing continues. Will any of the native's survive this corps of Marines?

    It takes a heck of a book to overcome those 'shortcoming' and this is one hell of a book and series.
    Sure it drags on a bit with 3 full books from the time the characters crash land on Marduke until they take off for a flight back to Earth but 90% of this epic is very imaginative and interesting. Mr Weber loves his ancient weapons mixed with the new and his future worlds back in the Dark Ages. I listened to the entire series and enjoyed almost all of it. 4 stars.

    "Good "marines" book"

    this book is all about marines....squirmishes, battles, wars...a mission and their honor and duty to fulfill it..in a far away planet.
    If you like milatary novels, this will work out well.

    "Okay book three is good but to much the same"

    If you like me you listen to the whole series in order. so this book is a must there is a few real plot details that will ruin book four for you. there are only some of the same old battles you want to listen to. that my only complaint to this book. worth the listen its importiant to the series. definatly good. but get ready to hear a bit of the same.

    "Fun, but not spectacular"

    It's a fun listen, but nothing extraordinary. I enjoyed it though.
