No Price Too High (Warp Corps Marines)
Written by C. J. Carella.
The battle for humanity’s survival continues.
Peter Fromm: After barely surviving the Battle of Kirosha, Captain Fromm and the rest of the 101st Marine Expeditionary Unit are sent forth to defend a vital star system. While the US Navy battles a vast alien armada in the skies above Parthenon, the Devil Dogs must fight a formidable, well-equipped army on the ground. Retreat is not an option.
Lisbeth Zhang: The former naval officer, once a rising star, faces the end of her career. She reluctantly accepts a new, secret posting, one that will turn her into an experimental subject in a covert weapons project that may save humanity – or spell its doom.
Heather McClintock: Being a CIA operative in a hostile galaxy is never easy. Out in the cold, with no support but her wits and skills, can she make a difference in the battles to come or just become another casualty?
The sequel to Decisively Engaged, No Price Too High is a tale of heroism and desperate combat in a hostile universe.
Errata: I accidentally called the secret US program that produced the War Eagle after the USS Lexington instead of the actual first vessel of its kind, the Langley. I have corrected the error in the manuscript and hopefully previous purchasers will have their ebooks updated. My apologies.

I enjoyed this and the first book immensely. The action stays moving, the discrepancy between older star-faring races tech and ours is believable and the idiotic politics of Earth trying to control colony worlds is nailed. Five out of five for plot and pace.
