Description

With his Heritage, Legacy, and Inheritance trilogies, New York Times bestselling author Ian Douglas established himself as one of the true masters of military sf--sharing center stage with such authors as Rick Shelley, John Ringo, David Sherman, and Dan Cragg in a wildly popular sub-genre of science fiction that includes such enduring classics as The Forever War by Joe Haldeman and Robert Heinlein's Starship Troopers. Now, with Bloodstar, Douglas kicks off his new series, Star Corpsman, with a bang, focusing on the elite units of recon Marines and S/R Corpsmen who infiltrate alien worlds ahead of major planetary invasions to gather intelligence on both the local environment and on the psychology and biology of the enemy. In Bloodstar Ian Douglas carries readers once more across the vast galaxy, light-years from Earth, and into the fire and terror of future war.

Back cover copy

In the 23rd Century, war is still hell . . .

Navy Corpsman Elliot Carlyle joined up to save lives and see the universe. Now he and Bravo Company's Black Wizards of the interstellar Fleet Marine Force are en route to Bloodworld--a hellish, volatile rock colonized by the fanatical Salvationists who desired an inhospitable world where they could suffer for humanity's sins. Their penance could prove fatal--for the Qesh, a strange alien race detected but still mysterious for six decades, have made violent first contact.

Suddenly countless lives depend upon Bravo Company--perhaps even the fate of homeworld Earth itself--as the Marines prepare to confront a vast force of powerful, inscrutable enemies. And one dedicated medic, singled out by an extraordinary act of valor, will find himself with an astounding opportunity to alter the universe forever . . .
