Hallmark Moments

Today I am just going to start off with a joke. “I’m going to be good all weekend!” BWHAHAHAHA! HECK NO!

Erik Cain joined the Marines to get off death row. The deal was simple; enlist to fight in space and he would be pardoned for all his crimes.

In the 23rd Century, assault troops go to war wearing AI-assisted, nuclear-powered armor, but it is still warriors and blood that win battles. From one brutal campaign to the next, Erik and his comrades fight an increasingly desperate war over the resource rich colony worlds that have become vital to the economies of Earth’s exhausted and despotic Superpowers.

As Erik rises through the ranks he becomes a deadly warrior, and he finally finds a home, first with the Marines who fight at his side and later among the colonists – men and women who have dared to leave everything behind to build a new society on the frontier, one where the freedoms and rights lost long ago on Earth are preserved.

But causes can be fleeting, imperfect things. Amidst the blood and death and sacrifice, Erik begins to wonder. Is he fighting the right war? And who is the real enemy?

The First Book of Jay Allan’s Bestselling Crimson Worlds Series (over 800,000 books sold)…
Now Included: A sneak peek at Crimson Worlds 2: The Cost of Victory. Read the first three chapters, immediately following the end of Marines in this Kindle edition.

I became a creature of extreme violence well something shot out of the weed whacker ricochet of the wall and landed in my mouth. I have no idea what it was. I was done at that point.
