Rob Sanders' Redemption Corps
Redemption Corps is the story of Zane Mortensen, a Major in command of the storm trooper company, named the "Redemption Corps". It is the first novel by Rob Sanders and is a pretty decent offering. The novel is uniquely told from two perspectives, or two different time lines. In one Zane is a prisoner, in the other, Mortensen is fighting a campaign against insurgent forces, and rather than being the typical guard foot/armor slog, his forces are only used for high risk priority missions.It's almost as if you get the best of both a guard and a space marine novel. Redemption Corps has some interesting twists and turns, and all in all, is an entertaining read.
