    The fight to free the Earth from alien domination began in Live Free or Die, and continued in Citadel. Now Tyler Vernon and his troops aboard the gigantic battle station Troy face a desperate battle with the forces of galactic tyranny. And the very survival of the Earth and its people is not all that is at stake. The galaxy itself must choose to live free or die - and if the tyrants win this battle, darkness will fall across the galaxy for millennia to come.

    "Too Talky"
    Overall

    I like John Ringo's books. I especially like the first two Troy Rising books, but this one was just yakkety, yakkety, yak. Oh, yeah right at the end a battle scene that seemed to be done as an after thought and leaves one wondering if the author just got tired of writing it.

    Prince Roger MacClintock, Tertiary Heir to the Throne of Man, was a spoiled rotten, arrogant, whiny, thoroughly useless young pain in the butt. But that was before an assassination attempt marooned the Royal Brat and his bodyguards on the planet Marduk, and before they had to march half way around the entire planet, through 120-degree heat and five-hour rainstorms in jungles full of damnbeasts, capetoads, killerpillars, and atul-grak, not to mention hostile peoples, to make their way back to port.

    Mark says: "Good Ole Sci Fi"
    "Yak Yak Yak"
    Overall

    This book is all talk and very little action. They philosophy on life and death and social positions and rights and duties of authory figures and very little action. I enjoy John Ringo's books, but not this one.
