Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

In this admirable continuation of the authors' March Upcountry (2001), Prince Roger McClintock and his diminishing band of Royal Marines are still on the soggy, hot planet Marduk and still having an interesting time. Their way to the sea and their ultimate goal is barred not only by jungle, swamp, weird wildlife and local politics, but also by a wandering barbarian horde known as the Boman. In addition, the Marines' technological advantage is shrinking faster than their numbers, their vitamins may run out before they reach safety and the course of true or any other love for the prince and female sergeant Nimashet Despreaux is not running smoothly. However, human and Mardukan are able to combine resources including the engineering skills of the city of Diaspra, the wealth of the port city of K'Vaern's Cove, and the military talents of Marine Captain Pahner, exiled Mardukan prince Raster and formidable general Bistem Kar to generate both weaponry and tactics to defeat the Boman. The development of a Mardukan combined-arms force will fascinate sophisticated readers (the manual of arms for a four-armed, 10-foot soldier is a thing of beauty), while the overthrow of the Boman will grip straightforward action lovers in spite of the staggering body count. And there's the distinct hint of at least one more volume about Prince Roger's homeward journey at the end of this one, a hint that will please many. (Aug.)

From Library Journal

Stranded on the hostile planet Marduk and charged with the protection of Prince Roger, Tertiary Heir to the Throne of Man, the Bronze Battalion of the Empress's Own company of elite soldiers makes its tortuous way toward the sea and their only hope of returning home. This fast-paced sequel to March Upcountry continues the odyssey of men and women caught in a struggle for survival and determined to maintain their courage and humor in the face of overwhelming odds. Coauthors Weber (the Honor Harrington series) and Ringo (A Hymn Before Battle) excel in depicting the lives and times of soldiers both on and off the battlefield. With particular appeal to fans of military sf, this title belongs in most sf collections.

From Booklist

After their bloody battles in March Upcountry [BKL Ap 15 01], Prince Roger MacClintock and the empress' marines return. His party must blast its way across the alien landscape of Marduka to reach the planet's only spaceport, where another battle looms. They battle in the mountains, they battle in the jungle, and they battle by the sea to save an ancient city, K'Vaern's Cove, from the barbarian Bomans. The marines dislike becoming mercenaries but need the supplies and technology K'Vaern's Cove can offer to build a sailing ship. Some readers may weary of this journey, which seems a long way from its end in this installment. Fortunately, Weber and Ringo offer some funny scenes, such as the dinner party of the marines and the elite of K'Vaern's Cove, who inquire with sociological interest about human mating habits. And finally, after 1,000 pages, the romance between Roger and Sergeant Despreaux begins to heat up. John Mort
