This is the first of, I believe, a 14 book series. I believe I have read these books but I can’t remember when and I don’t remember the books.
StarFist is a typical military sci-fi book. There’s a lot of character building in this book since it is the introduction to the series. The main character is a young man named Dean. I’ll let you read about the rest of his name. He joins the “space marines” and his journey begins.
Each book tells a story that involves Dean, not necessarily directly, but he does figure into each book.
These are good, easy reads. Sometimes the stories get predictable but they are good stories to read in the end.
