Citadel was a very good read. The story flows really fast too. I got into it and forgot about other stuff while I was reading. I love books like that.
This is the sequel to Live Free Or Die. In this book earth has gotten free of the aliens that first invaded and dropped rocks on the cities. They have made friends and set up trade with the Glatun. The Glatun are invaded by a warlike species named the Rangora. The Rangora are also determined to destroy the dangerous Humans.
The battle station called Troy is only partially finished. They have some bombs and some lasers. Will it be enough? Read the book and find out!
John Ringo has written many other books as well. You can find a list and more information about him on his website here.
“Of all the warriors of the world
Those of Troy were the most fell
They were those born of Winter.”
This is a quote from Live Free of Die by John Ringo. I really like the way Ringo takes bits of folklore and history and adds them to his stories. He knows his history and folklore really well too. And the battles! I don’t know much about such things but they seem realistic to me. This was a really good read. It started out exciting and pretty much stayed that way. Great story!
The story is that earth has been invaded by aliens. They have dropped rocks on some cities and are demanding all of our metals. At first Earth has nothing to trade that any of the aliens want. Then one man, Tyler Vernon, finds something to trade. The question is: can he keep it long enough to do any good? And what exactly should he do anyway? Is there any way to defend earth against these aliens?
Read the book! It is worth it. Great read.
Oh and I found a video on YouTube that any Ringo fans might want to watch. It is Winter Born. Actually even if you never heard of John Ringo before you might want to watch the video. It is really well done. Nice song too.
David Webers Out of the Dark is a wonderful book. I didn’t think so at first. In fact a bit over halfway through it I was getting upset because it looked as if there was no way at all that the earth was going to survive. They have been invaded by aliens with a superior technology. Then he comes out with a huge surprise. Something completely unexpected. It was a great way to end the story. You should read it!!
You can get a copy of Out of the Dark at Barnes and Noble.
