Publisher's Summary

Of all the hosts of Eurotas, the Troias were the most fell. For they were born of Winter.
Between the Solar Array Pumped Laser and Troy, the two-trillion-ton nickel-iron battlestation created by eccentric billionaire Tyler Vernon, Earth has managed to recapture the Sol system from their Horvath conquerors and has begun entering the galactic millieu. But when the Rangora Empire rapidly crushes humanity's only ally, it becomes clear the war is just beginning.
At the heart of nickel, iron, and starlight are the people, Marines, Navy, and civilians who make Troy a living, breathing, engine of war. Survivors of apocalypse, they know the cost of failure. If this Troy falls, no one will be left to write the epic.
Citadel continues the saga begun in Live Free or Die, following the paths of several characters during the first years of The Spiral Arm Wars, culminating in the First Battle of E Eridani.

What the Critics Say

"[Boyett's] voice is clear, and he affects slightly different voices to differentiate between the various characters. The overall result is effective, and listeners will be drawn in." (AudioFile)

Dips in the middle

This is a good book, but it dips in the middle and flies off into "ideal" US politics. Generally no problem as this is written by an American, but it needs to keep some form of credibility and that is lost (at least to the non-US ear) when we are told (at great length) how the world depends upon the US but the US does not depend upon the world (being it's saviour for several decades).

You get the feeling that the author is venting his personal anger - especially against the French.

If you can ignore this 30 minutes of nonsense then it is a good story.
