I'm about 3/4 of the way through this book. Put others aside to read a new John Ringo book. He's been at the top of my list for some time now. An automatic buy, read RIGHT NOW, no thinking involved.
The story set up is good. Should be a nice universe to write in/about.
But the "voice" of the author isn't John Ringo. Or at least it isn't the John Ringo I've read and enjoyed for years now.
I'm not sure how much and in what area John contributed to this book but is certainly doesn't read like he wrote it himself.
After the two recent collaborations he published with Mike Massa ( which also unfortunately also don't read as vintage Ringo ) and now this one I've got to seriously consider any future books that don't come out under his name alone.
This book is kind of OK but not what I expected. Not talking plot here. Only talking about the way the words string together.
As a previous reviewer said it's a $2.99 book, not more.
I buy and read books not only for the plot but for the style. And of the two style is more important to me.
I certainly hope John Ringo isn't going down the trail that others have taken and putting his name on stuff just for a paycheck. Wouldn't think he needs it by now but ...
