If you're looking for terrific military sf, John Ringo delivers again. Definitely sets you up for next volume. And the story unfolds into new characters and story lines. Although I kind of miss the hardy New England souls in book one, the new folk make up for the lack. Not for tofu eaters though.
Best and latest in this series. It focuses mostly on the point of view of "Comet" Parker (Space Navy Pilot/Engineer) as she wrestles with a new posting among many other things. There is a great blending of humor throughout. Overall, a well deserved five stars!
5 stars is i love and i will read agani and again. 1 is i hate and i never want to hear about it ever again. YES = :))) - NO= :'(
I have no idea how did i forget to write a review for this book.
It had a weird and slow start, but the 2nd half of the book was really good, especially the war in the end.
i'm really apset that i have no idea if there is a fourth one or not... John Ringo!!!!! please let us know if there is a fourth one coming!!!!!!!!! there has to be!!!!!
I had a listen to it several times so far... and never i got board from it so far.
Once we got past the social politics of culture clashes, this was a really great read. This book was not a light hearted as the previous two, but the story line was well developed. Tyler Vernon is now one of my hero’s. The book seems to open ended to be an ending, there has to be at least 4 more books yet to come. I will keep re-listening to the series until I have dug out every bit of the book. Good books have to be listened to multiple times. This is a great book and series.
More great stuff from a great author. If you like Ringo's other books in this series, you will love this one too.
I was very disappointed in this book. The story was very lazy and takes forever to get going. This was just another payday for Johnny Ringo.
Nothing is simple in life, but battle promises to grant some clarity. Or perhaps it just focuses the chaos. Ringo approaches cultural clashes, political bureaucracies, alien races with clear perception, humor, great writing and sympathy. I find myself hating the rangorra as a whole while sympathizing with individuals. He keeps pulling out new characters I feel I already have known. It's great writing, great twists in plot, and characters you love, even the ones you love to hate.
The narration is top notch. The characters are recognizable and the accents so much fun. Mark Boyett is one of my favorite.
Fascinating complicated characters you rapidly become invested in. Humanocentric and a bit tongue in cheek at moments this tale is vast in setting, story and scope. Shades of Ringos' Centurion with a younger voice.
Read it many times, listening was a hoot.
It's amazing how much insult the author keeps pooring on to Latinos and Muslims. The Latin Americans are lazy monkeys and the muslims are rapist terrorists according to him. I couldnt continue listening. This book should be taken off the list!
As with the other books im this series the world is very simple: essentially american space cowboys saving the world from one dimensional aliens and democratic communist - all covered by Fox News. Quite entertaining though
