Citadel (Troy Rising Book 2) Kindle Edition
|New from||Used from|
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 begin 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.
At the publisher's request, this title is sold without DRM (DRM Rights Management).

About the author
Top reviews from the United States
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
John Ringo generally writes very well and I highly recommend him. This book is the exception that proves the rule, and a complete waste of time--unless you LIKE supposition and second-rate philosophy seasoned with inaction and insecurity. It seems like Ringo lost his way in the forest and couldn't find his way back home, on this one.
But, like I said--the exception to the rule--try his other works, they're great.
Airborne all the way! (SRF)
Some people prefer that additional character development, I thought it wasted many pages and ultimately didn't add to the overall plot or air of the book. I found myself skipping entire sections related to them and not feeling like I missed anything vital to the story.
In any event, despite that minor complaint, it still is an interesting story line and I will continue it to the end.
I do wish that the author and publisher would consider offering kindle versions but it is a free country and nothing requires them to do so.

Faced paced as you would expect from Mr Ringo with rounded characters and excellent action - if you liked his Posleen war series do pick this up.
Have the third installemnt on pre-order and in these cash strapped times, that say's more than Five Stars.
One man responds intellegently and eventualy leads to a credible defence of us all.
It helps that mostly the aliens depend on inherited tech/science and Earth has the benefit of science fiction, space science/speculation to make the most of what they can afford to buy from the aliens.
This realy applies to the whole trilogy(so far) only Live free or Die(Book 1) can stand alone.
