In route, a saboteur tries to blow up his transport and then the crippled ship is set upon by warships from the Empire's arche enemy. Roger ends up shipwrecked on the back side of the panet Marduk. His only choice for survival is to march half way around the planet to get the spaceport, seize the spaceport and capture a ship to take him home. Between him and his goal are thousands of miles of jungle full of damnbeasts, killerpillars, carnivorous plants, torrential rain, and barbarian hordes of 3 meter tall, 4 armed Mardukens. The deepest visible-light image of the cosmos, the Hubble Ultra Deep Field. ... John Ringo is an American science fiction and fantasy author, who specializes in the subgenre of military science fiction, concentrating on SF scenarios that have a lot of infantry battles and other types of ground combat. ...
