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.

©2003 David Weber and John Ringo; (P)2006 Blackstone Audio Inc.

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)

    "Not as good as the first two"

    I had the impression from glowing reviews that this was the final book in this series, but the story isn't done. They spent a fair amount of minutes TALKING about the next phase, but that would be another book (if that ever happens).
    I really enjoyed the first two books. This one wasn't satisfying. Some character did some really stupid things that had me saying " Hey, wait a minute. This person is smarter than that! They learned this lesson already!"

    Story
    "I enjoyed this just a tad less than book one"

    I can't give four and three quarters stars for story.

    This book, like two, was one fight to another. During these battles, they taught the natives new fighting methods and weapons, to save their homes from the barbarians. Also they had to learn how to fight without their own weapons.

    As they travel to take over the space station, they lose friends/colleagues and gain friends.

    The nararration, in my opinion, is top notch.

    I enjoy the mix of characters and the mingling of sci-fi and "primitive" societies.

    "SUPERB! LOVE IT."

    David Weber and John Ringo are both marvellous writers. The story plot gets better and better. Stefan Rudnicki performed all characters so well. His performance of Prince Roger and Captain Palmer are so... Good. I am starting on Bk 4. It was a pity that so many of died. They were all heroes in my book. Prince Roger will make a great leader! I hope he will get his love in the end. I also hope that there will be more books on Prince Roger. Thank you Audible for this wonderful series.

    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!....

    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!
