Summary

What could test a marine more than all-out war? The Scourge.

A simple distress beacon.... 

A mining colony in the outer reaches....

Supposedly another routine deployment for Mike Barton of the Combined States Marine Corps, but what they find on the surface is unlike anything anyone had ever encountered. 

Horribly wounded in a battle with an unknown quantity, Barton only survives through a chance encounter with two special operators. As if the skirmish wasn’t enough, what comes next will be beyond his imagination. 

Thrown into a joint task force with troops from the New Russian Confederacy, Barton must return to the colony, face what had be-fallen him there, and investigate what killed everyone. 

The investigation will have to wait because the Scourge won’t. The fight for his life continues and his chances are slim.

military sci fi at its best this guys going places

Scourge:

100 % honesty. Started it didn't love the narrator didn't love the story. Thought ow no .

Just finished probably one of my favorite books

Actually the Brilliant narrator fits perfectly! An action packed story hardly covers it bloddy loved it!

Russian roulette with a automatic!! Great laughs / A serious back talking marine

Shame on me for the doubt!

Can't wait for more odin

Awesome

Really enjoyed this one and the humor was good but this definitely gave me some mass effect vibes also the changes of POV between the characters was great since it mainly focuses on the MC but when it changes it's to give you what's going on behind the scenes or at another part of the battlefield, can't wait for the next one!
