Ree 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 t. The third book in the Troy Rising series picks up where Citadel left off Dana Parker is transferred to the new Thermopylae station in order to stiffen up a screwed up suadron of Myrmidon assault shuttles mostly staffed by Latin American personnel To say there is a culture clash is an understatement Later of course the fecal matter hits the rotary air impeller in a big way as the Rangora decide it is time to deal with those pesky Terrans once and for allThe cultural issues between Anglos and South Americans are dealt with humorously but with very serious undertones Mr Ringo has obviously spent a lot of time thinking about this While it would be easy to think that he is just an American bashing what he perceives as an inferior culture he is undeniable right about many aspects For example the contrast between honor and duty as well as the problems with a class societyThe way in which things go seriously pear shaped at the end is vintage Ringo Massive action Massive losses Heroics with that little bit of Ringo humor that just makes it so readableEngineer s Mate Second Class Dana Parker hang on you say wasn t she a Coxswain s Mate in the previous book is a perfect protagonist for this kind of book A true heroThis may be my favorite Ringo ever The only niggling criticism is the lack of a dramatis personae This is not much of a problem in the beginning but lots of characters are suddenly introduced during the final action leaving me occasionally confused as to who was whomhttpwwwbooksrosbochnetp691

I have in the past been peeved with John Ringo and have even used the dreaded B word BORING about one of his works Well hallelujah and raise the flag I don t have anything but praise for the 3rd work in this series Ringo is again my beloved author in whom I am well pleased This volume continues the saga of Vernon Tyler Dana Parker a handful of AI s and a cast of thousands against the wannabe alien invaders the Rangora The alien s war machine is big experienced and rich as opposed to Earth s inexperienced relatively tech poor and ill organized forces Vernon Tyler a self made man has seen from the first that his ideal Liberty with a capital L reuires a big blood transfusion to prevail Tyler would prefer that the blood come from the aliens and has been doing his best to beef up Earth s defensive capabilities Dana Parker nick named Comet for her piloting lives down near the sharp end of the stick She has been sent to Thermopylae to to sharpen up the 143rd whose discipline and readiness exist only on paper Dana collides with politics culture issues and downright clueless stupidity Throughout the narrative we are clearly headed for a vast and violent showdown Certain reviewers from so far East that they ought to be up to their knees in salt water have seemed to be surprised by the outcome of this battle These reviewers seem to have missed the fact that Thermopylae and Hot Gates mean the same thing What the hell are those Ivy League schools teaching these days Obviously not history or literature Certainly the legacy of those Spartans who bought time for the tiny Greek democracies to get their act together cast their shadows forward in time to this book We will fight in the shade Ringo s fictional fighters will survive to fight other battles and I for one am eagerly waiting

    The first 23 of the book were very good and very well written I enjoyed the story of Parker's dealings with the South Americans and the cultural clashes I also very much liked how the AI Granadica had an issue that tied back to the first book's Johannson's virus What I did not like was the sudden establishment of a friendship between Tyler and Parker It wasn't organic who announces they are friends with someon
