Nice to see Michael O'Neal back, and his daughters
If you have been checking my reviews then you know that there is a list of the correct order to read these books in, this is labeled as book 12 and that's actually where is belongs if you don't count "The Hero" because that's like way in the future but its labeled as book 5.
I have posted the order I think they should be read in before but here it is again, first names of the books titles only - "Hymn" "Gust" "Devil" "Hell" "Watch" "Yellow" "Tuloriad" "Cally" "Sister" "Honor" "Eye" and "Hero" - if/when the Author writes more books that take place in different places I will probably get them also and post another review with the updated order.
Now the review - it was good to see Michael O'Neal back in action again if only to be treated like crap at first, he goes on to be in charge of some really important stuff and he does a good job at it.
I was expecting to see more of the ACS here but you will find out soon that they are mostly destroyed which sucks but this book ends like there should be a few more right after this one ended, I hope that Ringo writes more of them because his work is just great only lacking in a few places but the greatness makes up for it with really funny parts that most Sci-Fi doesn't have a lot of - there is technical stuff also which is what makes things interesting, but comedy as well and that's what Ringo does best.
O'Neal is back with his daughters which is cool to see because the last time the 3 of them were together was when they were just kids like 3 and 6 years old and then there was the first 4 books if you read them then you know whats up with them not seeing each other.
This one is a must read if you are a fan of this series, The Watch on the Rhine and Yellow Eyes could be skipped but then The Tuloriad has some stuff in it you don't know about so I might have said in past reviews to skip "Watch" and "Yellow" but that's not the case now - they are slow but worth it, Yellow Eyes more so.

Fun, Cliff Hanger, and massive body count
like all ringo stories this one also has a massive body count, its fast paced, and we finally see humans taking a dominant role.
on the downside like all ringo books this one just ends, basically a cliffhanger, i like that we are seeing some new races and how they interact, i also like that we start seeing some more tech appear. if you like ringo you'll like this
