“[Ringo’s SF is] peopled with three-dimensional characters and spiced with personal drama as well as tactical finesse.” (Library Journal)
"Fans of strong military SF will appreciate Ringo’s lively narrative and flavorful characters.” (Publishers Weekly)
“Ringo provides a textbook example of how a novel in the military SF subgenre should be written.... Crackerjack storytelling.” (Starlog)
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.
Rarely have I ever enjoyed so much.... life in a book. Other books I have read that try to portray life are unimaginably slow and after realizing I had listened to over half the book my attention suffused, I realized that the writer was some kind of genius. NEVER have I enjoyed this level of character development, story pushing was perfect the battle climactic and engaging and in the end though I understood why it ended as it did, all I wanted was more. Well done, simply well done.
I love this series and have listened to the whole set 3 times. The story is both comical and practical. The characters all feel relateable and loveable. I've gotten 6 of my friends to get audible accounts since listening to this audio book. It is worth the credit and the listening time I promise you.
this was horrible. if i had to listen to anymore droning on about how different cultures have differences I would have thrown myself off a bridge to escape it. the storylines just faded or died out. seemed to be some heavy stereotypes with little actual firsthand knowledge of those cultures. more like someone read another book or drew conclusions from their own extrapolated vague knowledge. i don't see how it took as long as it did to get it on paper. no offense intended. but what the hell man. after the genius of the first 2 installments this seems like an attempt to make a few bucks at his readers expense. very disappointed. I will be more cautious in the future when looking at any new work from Ringo.
