Beschreibung

Prince Roger MacClintock, Tertiary Heir to the Throne of Man, was a spoiled rotten, arrogant, whiny, thoroughly useless young pain in the butt. But that was before an assassination attempt marooned the Royal Brat and his bodyguards on the planet Marduk, and before they had to march half way around the entire planet, through 120-degree heat and five-hour rainstorms in jungles full of damnbeasts, capetoads, killerpillars, and atul-grak, not to mention hostile peoples, to make their way back to port. Under the right circumstances, even the most spoiled brat can grow up fast, and it turns out that, under his petulant exterior, Prince Roger is a true MacClintock, a scion of the warrior dynasty that created the Empire of Man. Now both prince and bodyguards are determined to get each other off the planet alive. Of course, the planet has other ideas.

Kritikerstimmen

"[An] admirable continuation...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." (Publishers Weekly)
"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 and Ringo excel in depicting the lives and times of soldiers both on and off the battlefield." (Library Journal)

Hilfreichste

gripping and immersive

If you are not generally repelled by military SF these warnings apply:
Warning #1: Only makes sense if you listened to the previous first volume before starting with this one
Warning #2: If you get this second volume of the series you should get the following two volumes as well right now.
Warning #3: If you start listing you should not have any plans for the next few days - you'll have a hard time stopping to listen until you're completely through!
The book content as well as the speaker are both excellent. In my collection of english audio books I consider these four volumes clearly the best (I only have two german ones that I consider to be better).
