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

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

Read The Hot Gate

He 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 com. As the third in the Troy series by John Ringo this was again another fine novel His work across this series has been very consistent and while Ringo may not match literary greats he writes to the best of his ability and writes and entertaining and challenging novel here again The Hot Gate continues with the characters introduced in the second book Citadel and shifts attention from the Troy to a second battle station called Thermopylae What was fascinating in this one is how Ringo focuses on the aspect of how in his world America has been running all the new space programs and particularly on Troy everything is done to their standards But on the Thermopylae there s a culture mix of Latin Americans and Islamic Pathan soldiers I loved how he described his character s attempts to get everything into order while entering into the clash of cultures and the idea of honour over duty that some cultures have His writing allowed me to think about how that we often talk about that we have to have our culture understood without being willing to drop our ground and understand someone else s culture We are so selfish like thatEither way a great third novel in this series I don t know whether any are on the way but it did not seem like a concluding novel so perhaps there may be a couple of new novels coming in to finish everything It was pretty good even if it is or is not over Very much a series recommended for action adventure fans

    Like the first two books Live Free or Die and Citadel The Hot Gate was a thoroughly entertaining military hard sci fi thrill ride I ate it up like candyTwo things to note however First the book seemed to completely wander off the reservation in terms of plot Scene by scene the action made sense but a lot of the emergencies and dramas that w
