Lazarus Rising: Starfist: Book 9. David Sherman (Author), Dan Cragg (Author), John Bedford Lloyd (Narrator). This book in the Starfist series is a bit different from the rest that I have read so far in that it does not really involve an official deployment of the 34th FIST. Not even a small detachment of marines. Instead it tells a story that plays out on the Kingdom planet after the aliens have been forced to retreat from the planet and the 34th FIST have left to deal with their losses. Okay, slight spoiler, at least one of the marine manages to get himself involved in the story but not really in any official capacity.

It’s the 25th century, but the Marines are still looking for a few good men. . . . In their fiercest combat yet, the hard-charging Marines of 34th Fleet Initial Strike Team (FIST) have finally won their battle against a fullscale alien invasion of planet Kingdom. But as citizens try to return to some semblance of normalcy, the old government is replaced by a ruthless new regime. Meanwhile, in a cave in some forgotten Kingdom backwater, several humans slowly regain consciousness. Their minds have been probed repeatedly . . . by whom and for what reason they cannot say, for they’ve been stripped of all memories of themselves and their past lives. These half-dead outcasts begin a journey into the unknown— in search of civilization, in search of themselves. And one survivor’s journey will take him to places of overwhelming danger, where his identity will be revealed—to the shock of all.“Non-stop action . . . This is state-of-the-art military SF.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

This book in the Starfist series is a bit different from the rest that I have read so far in that it does not really involve an official deployment of the 34th FIST. Not even a small detachment of marines. Instead it tells a story that plays out on the Kingdom planet after the aliens have been forced to retreat from the planet and the 34th FIST have left to deal with their losses. Okay, slight spoiler, at least one of the marine manages to get himself involved in the story but not really in any official capacity.

I have to say that I was a bit suspicious of this book since I am generally not too keen about these “aftermath” stories but again, David Sherman & Dan Cragg managed to produce a well written book that was fun enough to read that I enjoyed it all the way. Okay, it is not one of my favorite one in the series but given the subject for the story it did surprisingly well for me.

For obvious reasons this book do not contain any of the major fighting and military campaigns, with the exception of a little bit at the end, that the other books have contained. It is more focused on character interaction and basic survival on one hand and Dominic de Tomas deprived regime on the other. No sooner than de Tomas have overturned the fanatic religious regime of Kingdom he installs his Socialist Party of Kingdom. Great, treading one evil for another one. Actually, there are not that much actual socialism in the way this guy “manages” his planet. It is more like the authors needed an evil tag to put on this nutjob and picked socialism. Is not a socialist party in a kingdom a contradiction in terms by the way? In any case, everything goes to hell of course and the good guys have to sort it out.

One part of the book which plays itself out in a prison is damned hard to read. Not because it is badly written but because all the prisoners are referred to by number only. Heck, I have enough difficulties remembering names! No way I can remember who was prisoner 9368 and how was 9004 and so on. I had to do quite a bit of flipping back and forth in those chapters.

In the last few pages of the book we actually get back to the 34th FIST which was quite fun. A few people pull some, not so few, strings to get their combat losses replaced. There are also a bit of a reunion happening and if you cannot figure out what that is about after having read the previous book and the fairly obvious book blurb, well, I am not going to tell you. Buy and read the book!

This book really was a great one. It was a fitting end to this particular "chapter" of this series. The ending was very satisfying. I won't bore you with a plot summary as I know other reviewers are fond of doing that. This book has some very clear historical ties and references if you even have the small amount of historical knowledge that I do. Most of it is very obvious and what is not obvious is noticeable once you think very carefully about similarities between names and people and places and things that happen and how they're done. My only real problem with this book is that it has no chapter demarcations. I think it's rather odd to not have them in this book when the past books in this series did have them. If you liked the previous books in this series, give this one a shot. I don't think you'll be disappointed. Have at it!

LAZARUS RISING (12/2003) is the 9th book in the STARFIST series of 25th Century Military SciFi, covering the exploits of a galaxy-faring platoon of Space Marines.

This book follows book 8 - KINGDOM'S FURY - which was, hands down, the best entry from the series... and a hard act to follow. The space aliens have been defeated on Kingdom, but in the power-vacuum left after the Confederation Marines leave, a NAZI-like regime pops up to take power. The NAZI types, of course, are a loathsome bunch, and their wicked methods are described in detail.

The secondary sub-plot involves Gunnery Sgt. Bass's exploits (and his hokey "amnesia").

As is common in this series, there is a dearth of future sci-fi technology (no new tech is introduced in this book), and no aliens or future cultures are introduced. All in all, this is an average entry for the series... but still fun stuff.

The ninth book of the StarFIST has very little to do with the 34th StarFIST. Instead, it has much to do with the most celebrated marine of that unit, Gunnery Sergeant Charlie Bass. Two books ago he was ambushed while on patrol and presumed dead. Now he is back and his unit has left him behind on the planet of Kingdom. There are no credible threats from Skinks anymore but that is made up for by the threat from the bloodthirsty planetary government based on the worst of the Nazis. It's one very capable marine against a planet of neo-nazis. The bad guys are going to lose bigtime.

This is an exciting book with plenty of unexpected twists. I think it is the best of the series so far.

A surprising volume in the series. The "domestic" interplay was refreshing and fun to follow. The heroes were consistent and the "super soldier" element took a surprising turn. Recommended.

It is really terrible news that Del Rey decided to cancel this series with David Sherman. The stories and characters are very believable and entertaining.
Shame on you Del Rey for I am now considering Not buying any other series published by you since you could decide to cancel them as well.

I enjoyed all the Starfist series books.... I just wish they would end them vice stopping the series without finishing. PLEASE... PLEASE FINISH THE SERIES!!! This is a good story!!!
This is the best novel in the series yet. The authors drop much of the military pomp and focus on a single character from the 34th FIST for nearly the entire book. You get some good character development and new and interesting supporting characters. Unlike the characters from the 34th who you are mostly sure will survive each new novel, the supporting characters from this book have no guarantee which makes for a very enjoyable read.
