Publisher's Summary

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.

Battle stations! Listen to another galactic adventure in the Troy Rising series.

“Ringo provides a textbook example of how a novel in the military SF subgenre should be written.... Crackerjack storytelling.” (Starlog)

    "Hot action at the Hot Gate"

    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.

    "Third one is a charm"

    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!

    "Great series, I hope there is more"

    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.

    "I love this series!"

    More great stuff from a great author. If you like Ringo's other books in this series, you will love this one too.

    "Burn in hell Johnny Ringo!"

    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.

    "Racistic?"

    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!

    "Space cowboys"

    "We laughed, we cried, we want more!"

    My husband and I just finished a spectacular marathon of listening. This entire series is phenomenally rich with characters and events. And we were taken with Mark Boyett's tour de force performance.

    I won't spill plot lines because that's just mean.
    There is a lot of science in these, but if you don't get it, you can just go with the flow. Mostly, it's fun and, what I like best: it's a rollicking good story. We would love to see what came next.
