Publisher's Summary

The sequel to The Empire's Corps.

Six months ago, Colonel Edward Stalker and his Marines were abandoned on Avalon, left to fend for themselves as the Empire withdrew from the Rim. Since then, Avalon has been isolated from the settled universe... until now.

As a mysterious pirate organisation attempts to take over Avalon, the Marines find themselves struggling against a shadowy figure with dreams of power, while a young civilian is kidnapped and press-ganged into a pirate crew. They're fighting to preserve something of the Empire's order in the wake of its departure, but the pirates appear to have far greater resources and a plan that seems unstoppable.

The Empire is gone. What will take its place?

    Story
    "stereotypical military science fiction"

    I gave this series a shot. I must admit that I enjoyed the first book, but I understood what I was in for after the second one.

    the narrator fits the text, with the voice and tones of the disillusioned old veteran

    all the characters are depth-less, stereotypical and interchangeable

    the overall world is basic, superficial and unbelievable.

    at no time are we in any doubt that the heroes will win.

    I noticed the influence of Robert A Heinlein in the powered armors and marine mentality, which was the only bit that stood out as being really elaborated in the story, and in turn being the cause of the heroes overwhelming superiority.

    one positive point I will give the author, which is why I gave the book two stars, is the non idealistic, honor based warfare ethos the marines live by. They are out to win, to kill as many of the enemy, by any means necessary...

    The style is very repetitive, I slugged my way through two books, but just cant face listening the next 7 or 8 in the series...

    "love this series"

    Great plot and characters that you get emotionally invested in.

    Each book is amazing as a stand alone story but as a whole the series is epic.

    "Unexpected"

    I found his books by chance, but love both the marine and ark royal series. His little bows for those that he must have read before are a welcome smile to fans looking for a good modem day sci-fi writer

    "Well done story thoguh no surprises"

    There's nothing unusual about the way this story was written, but it's well put together and well done. I like the fact that a number of the main characters find themselves in different situations but with decent resolutions - bear in in that Christopher G Nuttell is happy to kill off characters - won't say if he does or does not in this one.

    If there's a downside it's the author's attempt to show the down and dirty side of the pirates - feels a bit painting by numbers, though I like the fact that he doesn't try sex scenes (unlike in the first book in this series).

    The narration is very good and works well with this story.

    "Clear Story Line"
    Where does No Worse Enemy rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is a sound space adventure. Very enjoyable.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Development of a good second book in the series. Builds upon the earlier work.


    Which character – as performed by Jeffrey Kafer – was your favorite?

    Jasmine.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    From military assignment to interstellar vision.


    Any additional comments?

    This book does not suffer from the shortcomings of many space adventures: too many characters, too much detail, too little plot. Congratulations on a good solid space adventure.

    Story
    "Here's hoping the third book is better."

    This was a struggle to finish. I understood the need for Mandy 's story but it was painfully slow and boring. I wanted more of the Marines story and didn't get it which is odd for this book and it title. Also, the author seems to be fixated on rape. Taking about it, describing it, alluding to it.... It gets hard to listen to.

    Story
    "Engaging"

    This is book two in the Empire Corp Series. Colonel Edward Stalker and his marines are left to fend for themselves as the Empire withdraws from the rim. After managing to obtain order on Avalon in the first episode, the people of Avalon and the Marines hope for the future is in peril when a mysterious pirate organization attempts to take over Avalon.

    The book is divided into two plots, one between the Marines and the pirates and the other plot about the kidnapped people by the pirates. The story does focus on one kidnapped victim and her attempts to survive and escape from the pirates.

    The writing is good; the characters are well done as is the action. There is lots of action, suspense and the story moves at a fast pace. The book has a good ending that leaves enough questions to provide for the next episode. Nuttall has an easy to read writing style. The book kept my attention and was enjoyable to read. Jeffrey Kafer narrated the story.

    Story
    "No Depth"

    The characters literally have no depth. Oh, they have cursory personalities, but the level of those personalities could have been developed on a character sheet in D&D. Don't forget that my character knows everything your character knows and a little: "gee, that spaceship is hundreds of kilometers away, but I the non-space war specialist postulate that there is sabotage AND a mutiny happening aboard that ship!" Low and behold, though we already knew this, it was occurring in just the right fashion to ensure no casualties whatsoever.

    Worst. Writer. Ever. I slogged through just to see how he was going to punch the next plot hole in the face.

    "Should have stopped at 1"

    The first book showed promise. This book add little to the story. The constant repetition of the angst felt by every single character at every moment was exhausting an not in a good way. You opinion may be different. This book was ok just not great for me.

    "good story"

    I enjoy books from the author, this is good one. initially I intensely disliked the narrators performance. Didn't like voice and it seemed like he was just reading book, no emotion no attempt to bring book to life. toward end of book he got better, but still dislike him.

    I bought book 2 and 3 on Kindle and will skip this series on audiobook.

    "Noble Soldiers, Realistic Marines."
    Any additional comments?

    I like the series so far, puts u in the mind set of what it is like to be a marine in the future.
    These marines are what we hope they all are like. If u like to expand ur horizon on things, these books will make u second guess any negative feelings towards the military. The way the Author details things out opens ur eyes even for the stuff happening right now.They are human, mortal, and have to make hard decisions to protect those they are charged with. As the books go on, the commentary explains why certain decisions are being made or have been made. Yes this is in the future, but the situations are modern. Enjoy the book, I think u'll finish having a new insight on what our modern soldiers have to deal with.

    "Moves the story along nicely"
    What made the experience of listening to No Worse Enemy the most enjoyable?

    It is a good follow up on the 1st, begins the move from a single planet to a sector.


    What other book might you compare No Worse Enemy to and why?

    Lost Fleet: Although the Lost Fleet and Beyond the Frontier series are better military novels.


    Any additional comments?

    There are a lot of comments on the authors repetitive references to rape. I felt it did not interfere with the story. He did use references to it, but it really isn't intrusive. He seems to use it as a means to show the degradation of the pirates, and from there he shows how that degradation leads to there demise.
