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.

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)
"Prince Roger; the man that left is now the Prince"
As the group continue their trek, their journey's end is within sight, But between here and that port there are still some adventures to be had. Love gained and love lost. Friends gained and friends lost. New foes and new allies.The book called upon my emotions. The joy, the horror, the anticipation, and the heart-breaking sadness all induced and coaxed by the writings and plots of this ongoing saga.I now understand why some use the phrase "space opera". It truly is. This ain't no fairytale for the young of mind, but it is for the older ones who still enjoy a great story packed with "epic". I have enjoyed this book and indeed this series. Stefan Rudnicki's ability to bring to life the story, the characters is such that at times I had to remind myself that there was only 1 actor voicing.It was my pleasure to lose so many of my sleeping hours listening to this wonderful book. Thank you for sharing your artistry.
"Good book - good series"
I very much enjoyed this "Prince Roger" series and have listened to it more than once.
For fans of epic science fiction this is a good buy - although the emphasis is more on low tech than high tech.
