Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A few good Marines beat the fierce, fanatical aliens once before. But that was a skirmish-not a full-scale invasion.

The truth is out. No longer are the Skinks just a horrible secret haunting the Marines of Company L. Now the aliens are all-too-real invaders whose savage attacks have devastated planet Kingdom, a world of squabbling religions where the men of the 34th FIST confront a desperate situation. Cities that havent already been reduced to rubble are under siege, while starving refugees roam the land. And still the Skinks come, rising from stinking primordial swamps to slake their thirst for slaughter, armed with an uncanny ability to locate the enemy and with weapons so deadly that a single blast can drop a warplane or a decimate a squad.

Its painfully evident that 34th FIST is no match for these near-invincible killers, which is why third platoons been ordered to whip the citizens of Kingdom into fighting shape. With their backs to the wall and time running out, theres only one way the Marines can turn these timid, quarrelsome men into warriors: Take the battle to the enemy. Its a brilliant strategy, sure to succeed-if it doesnt get them killed first. . . .

Synopsis:

A lethal new special ops unit has joined Starfist. On the newly colonized planet Haulover, someone--or something--is destroying isolated farmhouses. When the Confederation receives a desperate plea for help, it's time to send in the Marines. Original.

Synopsis:

The mission of the space-faring Marines of the 34th FIST, begun in "Starfist: Kingdom's Swords, " continues as Company L prepares to combat their alien enemy's devastating new offensive. Original.
