You Should Never Speak Truth To Power…

The Galactic Empire is dying and chaos and anarchy are breaking out everywhere. After a disastrous mission against terrorists on Earth itself, Captain Edward Stalker of the Terran Marine Corps makes the mistake of speaking truth to power, telling one of the most powerful men in the Empire a few home truths. As a result, Captain Stalker and his men are unceremoniously exiled to Avalon, a world right on the Rim of the Empire. It should have been an easy posting…

Well, apart from the bandits infesting the countryside, an insurgency that threatens to topple the Empire’s loose control over Avalon, and a corrupt civil government more interested in what it can extort from the population than fighting a war. The Marines rapidly find themselves caught up in a whirlwind of political and economic chaos, fighting to preserve Avalon before the competing factions tear the world apart. They’re Marines; if anyone can do it, they can.

The battle to save the Empire starts here.

Coup D’état by Christopher G. Nuttall

Executive Solutions is one of the world’s most capable mercenary units: a force designed to do everything from providing local security and training to hostage rescue, terrorist suppression, and many other operations in places regular military forces can’t–or won’t–go.

In a world riven by war and chaos, with law and order breaking down everywhere, they are often the tip of the spear, a deniable asset who can be praised or discarded as their paymasters decide. And yet now, they face a challenge that may be beyond even them.

Kabat has stayed out of trouble because the tiny kingdom’s government has avoided all involvement with the outside world, maintaining its independence and economic clout through careful development, quiet international alliances and the occasional use of naked force. But now, the government is on the verge of going rogue, of turning the country into a rogue state that will either collapse or find itself in the crosshair of the entire world. There is only one hope: mercenaries, Executive Solutions, must launch a coup to overthrow the rulers and save the kingdom from itself…and yet, if they fail, they will find themselves trapped, abandoned, and left to die.

But now, her weapons are outdated and her solid-state armour nothing more than a burden on her colossal hull. She floats in permanent orbit near Earth, a dumping ground for the officers and crew the Royal Navy wishes to keep out of the public eye.

But when a deadly alien threat appears, the modern starships built by humanity are no match for the powerful alien weapons. Ark Royal and her mismatched crew must go on the offensive, buying time with their lives And yet, with a drunkard for a Captain, an over-ambitious first officer and a crew composed of reservists and the dregs of the service, do they have even the faintest hope of surviving …

… And returning to an Earth which may no longer be there?
