New York Times bestselling author Ian Douglas's virtuosic Star Corpsman series proves one thing: The Marines are still the toughest sons of guns in the galaxy. As Bravo Company defuses a hostage crisis on an orbiting mining station, Navy Corpsman Elliot "Doc" Carlyle not only saves the lives of a wounded Marine and two extraterrestrial friendlies-he averts a terrorist strike intended to kill billions. His reward? Deployment on a recon mission into the darkest depths known to man. Abyss Deep is a foreboding ocean planet torn by extremes: boiling storm world on one side, unbroken glacier on the other. Humans established a research colony there to study the planet's giant sea serpents-but the colony has gone ominously silent. When Carlyle's team arrives, they discover a vessel belonging to a warlike alien species hovering above the atmosphere. But below the ice lurks a mystery so chilling it will make even Elliot Carlyle's blood run cold.… (més)

This is hard core sci-fi! Ian even uses new science to explain faster than light travel. I do have to say that while I enjoy reading about actual science and how we ‘fix’ problems in the future, at times Douglas could get a little long winded. He obviously has a huge interest in the health sciences for both physical and mental well-being. There were times I would like him to shut-up and just get on with the story already! But overall I found it to be very well written, engaging and hard to put down.

Elliot Carlyle “E-Car” is a Navy Corpsman assigned to a Marine company and does his best to keep them all healthy and in fighting shape. It’s a tough job because his company gets assigned a lot of dangerous missions, most wouldn’t have it any other way.

There are also many crazies who fear technology and do what they can to sabotage what they can. A group of terrorists were able to board and gain control of one of the orbiting asteroids and threatened to crash it into Earth if their demands weren’t met, one of the demands was to stop space mining. E-Car and troop were sent to neutralize the situation. They were successful but with one embarrassing political hiccup.

E-Car was rewarded for his mistake by being volunteered to go to Abyss Deep, to help find out what happened to a science research colony that went quiet. The only known life on the planet were immense sea monsters. When they arrived they found a alien ship, of an unfriendly sort that ran off when it spotted them. They also found a landing party that had been abandoned, most of the base was missing and no sign of the scientists.

I really enjoyed this book and I already have the first book ‘BloodStar’ on my wishlist. E-Car is just impulsive enough to get him into enough trouble to keep him from falling down the ‘Mary Sue’ character chute. You don’t really notice but by the end looking back you wonder how he seems to be the only one put all the pieces together. I’ll have to see if he’s that blessed in the first book. ( )
