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.


What the Critics Say

“[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)

The first two books were brilliant so what happened with this book ?
The book is about 16 hours long with about 15 hours devoted to south american politics that really has nothing to do with the story line , it should have been one space battle after another getting better and better instead it was boring and pointless.
Take my advice listen to the first two books and use your imagination to finish the trilogy.

What? Not sure what the Story was about

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

the end was ok but what was the rest about?

Any additional comments?

Ok so book one was good, book two seemed to put down the rest of the world and this book seems to be about south american class wars? Where did the story go? the end was good but what was this book about. I really hoped after the self indulgent stuff in book 2 this would pick up, well it was not all bad but the writer seems to have issues and brings them out in the book, sorry if for any reason there is a book 4 i won't be following it :( Having a female hero and a male hero is great ideas as in another series i am reading from this author but he really spoilt what could have been a great series for me :(
