Of the once innumerable battle clans of the Posleen only a handful survive. And that on the sufferance of a group of despised Indowy and Himmit. Plucked from the maelstrom on Earth they are cast out into the eternal blackness of the stars with only a slightly insane Indowy and a computer virus to guide them.
What follows is a trail of tears and remembrance as the Posleen retrace the footsteps of their ancestors in a search for their homeworld. A search to determine if the Posleen posess the one thing no Human would give them credit for: A soul.
Returned to their beginnings, the question remains: Is there a new path for the Tular Posleen?

Most of those 1-star reviews would have you believe the book is preaching and making a case for the existence of God, but it does no such thing. Indeed, it goes out of its way to point out how many opposing and contradictory beliefs we hold--and how utterly ridiculous any of them might seem to an alien race. Such an alien handily defeats every religious argument levied against him except for one, and that one argument was recognized by all in attendance as a sneaky and inconsequential nothing. Even the one who made it did not take it seriously and was merely happy to have a tiny victory in the conversation. If that is preaching then my name is Santa, and I have a workshop full of Darhel I would love to sell you.
There is one truly religious alien, and the book makes it clear that he is not so rational and does not quite get it. He is a minister for two denominations, and he picks and chooses what he wants to believe from each. He also believes the jungle is a living entity that sleeps and wants to kill him. In short, he's a joke.
The one credit the book gives to religion is the power of faith to motivate and steel men against hardship. And doesn't it? As a confident agnostic, I can honestly say that if I truly believed the creator of the universe wanted me to do something, I would be more motivated and resilient in seeing it done. If I believed in heaven, I would fear death less, too. Recognizing this is not preaching. It is a rational--and rather obvious--observation.
But some people do not want to be rational. They are so intolerant that the mere presence of opposing beliefs, un-mocked, terrifies them and stirs them to anger. It is for this reason that I encourage you to ignore any part of any review which focuses on religion, unless you are also so insecure. Other criticisms of the book are generally valid, but preaching? No. Far from it.
It was a bit sad the way the authors chose the end the confrontation between the old and 'new' religions but certainly great action.
After the many ways the Posleen have been to see how Guano had developed into having a 'wife' and son was very bizarre and unsettling but based on their 'true' previous way before the Aldenata I guess it does make sense.
So like almost all John Ringos books I enjoyed it and was keep captivated, John does some great collaborations with Tom Kratman. Often John Ringo's books after about book 4 tend to go down in quality but the this series of the Posleen is one that truly has been amazing even if he has had others pop in to assist him in differnet books in the series.
I think this one is a fitting finish to the series in many ways but with the previous book and threat of the new enemy perhaps not, perhaps a new series now the Darhel have been brought under control with their secrets revealed (previous book)
Suddenly 7 million folks show up declaring Paul a liar and antichrist !
My conclusion . It is harvest time and our Redeemer has issued His command to His workmen to start bundling up the tares according to Matthew 13 : 24 - 30 .
Herbert Armstrong died before the harvest time though he set his church on the path of keeping the laws , feast days , and the testimony of our Messiah without declaring Paul a liar .
Isaiah 8 : 20 and Revelation 12 17 , 14 : 12 , and 15 : 1-4 all agree that keeping the laws ( Torah ) and the testimony Immanuel gave His disciples is consistent throughout the Bible .
1 John 2:4 declares that Acts 15 : 24-29 is a lie . Yes , Luke and Paul preached a different Gospel , a lawless Gospel .
Matthew 7 : 21 - 23 ... depart from Me for I never knew you you workers of lawlessness .
