The Thin Blue Line (The Empire’s Corps IX)–Up Now

25 Aug

Up for purchase now!

Earth has fallen … and humanity is holding its breath, waiting for the next blow to fall.

On Terra Nova, Earth’s oldest colony world, chaos and anarchy are threatening to break out, with total collapse only one disaster away. In a desperate attempt to save the rest of the Empire, the planet’s Governor has summoned the leaders of the Core Worlds to Terra Nova, in hopes of sharing power and preventing civil war. But dark forces are on the move, intent on ensuring that the conference fails.

As the first strands of a deadly plot are uncovered, Imperial Marshal Glen Cheal finds himself fighting to uncover the plot before it is too late. Meanwhile, on her own mission to save the last best hope for peace, Specialist Belinda Lawson of the Terran Marine Corps is plunged into a nightmare where she can no longer trust her own mind, while her decisions will save or damn the Empire …

Failure isn’t an option. But success may not be an option either …

    As with all your stuff I bought it as soon as I found out about it. I enjoyed the story quite a bit, but the afterword was even better. We seem to be fellow travelers even though I’m nearly twice your age. Keep up the good work, which ever direction you decide to go next.

    Sometimes I think Chris has the ability to scan my head and then transfer many of my thoughts and attitudes to paper…I’m beginning to think that, at his young age, he’s already becoming a crotchety old fart like me.

    That being said, I truly enjoyed TTBL — and the fact that it has few “typos” and whatnot just make it more enjoyable than ever.

    But just to note — be careful, when changing “wreck(ed)” to “wreak(ed)” in the appropriate places, that you don’t accidentally replaced a necessary “wreck(ed)” with “wreak(ed)”. (Hint, hint.) 🙂

      I guess I was never young. Chris Date: Tue, 26 Aug 2014 08:25:49 +0000 To:

        Neither was I. I became an jaded, sarcastic old man somewhere around 15.

    Finished the book!
    Excellent, as usual.
    Expect a review coming your way. 😀

    On a side note, the aferword was a bit of a heavy read, hope you are not getting radical in your old age 😀
    Agreed with some points, disagreed with others, drew some parallels with my own country. But it did left me thinking a while about certain things, so I guess it fulfilled its purpose.

    Summa summarum, I am eager to know more about, well, everything from Avalon to Roland, so get cracking! Best regards, M

      Great! The afterwords are meant to make people think . Not everyone agrees with me – feel free to open a thread on the forum if you want to tell me why. Chris Date: Wed, 27 Aug 2014 03:31:48 +0000 To:

    The worst thing about the Thin Blue Line is waiting for the next Empire Corps book. Being completely and utterly hooked I’m desperate to find out what happens next. Thanks Christopher for some seriously riveting reads.
