Legendary war hero Spartan is back in the sixth thrilling adventure in the Mercenaries series. Only Spartan and his elite legions of mercenaries and robot soldiers can stop the Interstellar Empire and its warrior cults. War has come, and the while the Alliance is not ready for it, Spartan will not back down from a fight, no matter the odds.

The Star Empire is on the move, and sends its vast armadas to the border of the Alliance. A single cataclysmic naval engagement that will decide the fate of billions. It is a sudden and brilliant move, and leaves the Alliance’s finest warriors far from the final battle. There is nothing Spartan will not sacrifice to succeed, because he knows that only he and his forces can end this war. Little does he know that this terrible enemy has one final trick up its sleeve, one deadly ruse that will change the fate of billions forever.

Empires at War is a futuristic military sci-fi adventure that continues to expand the violent struggles of humanity during a time of Galactic upheaval. It is a classic work of realistic military science fiction, set against the aftermath of the apocalyptic Biomech War. A conflict that has left entire planets destroyed, and millions of citizens dead.

The thrilling Star Crusades: Mercenaries series includes:

  • Lords of War
  • Ghost Soldiers
  • Flames of War
  • Battle for Karnak
  • Warzone
  • Empires at War

Book 6 moves into space.

Thomas moves the MCs kicking serious hiney onto the spaceships. With the same attention to battle details of the previous books and battlefront camaraderie we've come to expect Spartan and his crew have to overcome the bad guy and get away with their lives. AND of course there are some new bad guys to ruin their day that need to be taken care of.
if you enjoyed the previous books you will probably enjoy this one a bit more. It's better, in my opinion, than books 4 and 5.
Purcell continues to do a great job narrating and brings you into the story and helps you to care about the characters.
Thanks guys and keep up the good work.
