Publisher's Summary

Before Avalon, before the Fall of the Empire, Edward Stalker was a young man growing up in Earth's Undercity - a nightmarish rabbit warren of tiny apartments dominated by gangs who loot, rape, and murder with impunity. When his family is killed in a gang attack, Ed takes the opportunity to run to the one place that will take him: the Terran Marine Corps. But becoming a marine isn't easy, and Ed will find himself pushed to the limits, surviving a training program designed to weed out everyone but the best before he learns what it means to be a Terran Marine....

    "If you love Empires Corps Don't buy"
    If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Very munday no story, absolutely nothing to do with Avalon story or the empire, just some Cln stalker back story, with out any story, completer tripe. I love the Serious and loved majority of the books and the Saga of about Avalon but this is utter crap. Had to force my self to listen to the end hoping it would turn around and be good... but no :-(


    Has First to Fight put you off other books in this genre?

    Not sure if i can trust the author to provide a good development and seems like, it just run of out a good plots.


    Have you listened to any of Jeffrey Kafer’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    Jeffrey Wafer's performance was outstanding as usual.

    Disappointing


    What could Christopher G. Nuttall have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    It's not consistent with the tech advances in the first books of the series. Where have all the implants and implanted weapons gone? The last few books have been lazy if ask me.

    "The Back Story on Stalker"

    This is book eleven in the Empire Corp Series. The series opened with Edward Stalker and his company being deployed to Avalon. In this episode Nuttall has decided to give us the back story of Stalker’s early life. Stalker was born on Earth in the under city, the home of the poor. He was disgusted with school and ready to graduate; his brother was attempting to recruit Stalker into a gang. Stalker decided he wanted out; to get away, move someplace. From school he finds information regarding military recruiters, he reads about the various services and thinks this might be a way out for him. The family was eating dinner one evening when a gang raids the apartment and kills everyone but Stalker. Stalker then heads to the Marine recruiting center and joins. Nuttall proceeds to tell the story of Stalker life in basic training, the Slaughterhouse and to his first deployment.

    Nuttall is constantly improving his writing skills; it is enjoyable to watch the development of a writer. Nuttall has created some very interesting characters and it’s pleasant to learn the back story of the key people. The story is a straight forward basic training type of story with suspense and action along with some humor. Jeffrey Kafer does an excellent job narrating this series.

    "I just don't like pre-quels."

    The story was good, but it shouldn't have come so late in the series, I keep hoping for a resumption of the original story line, the Battle for Avalon.

    "Interesting background info."

    If you wondered about Stalker's background then here you go but if your looking for a continuation of he overall story arch move on to the next on. Entertaining but I could have skipped it. I know I could not have written it and I appreciate he thought and detail given just not why I was buying the books.

    A very entertaining story about the one of the main characters in the Empire's Corps series. It's possibly one of the best stories in the series.
