This book follows on from Live Free or Die and Citadel. This time we focus solely on Dana as she is transferred to a new unit. The story is interesting, although perhaps it focusses on the dysfunction of the Latin American countries a little more than is really necessary. More interestingly, the book ends the series (as best as I can tell) in an unusual manner for a book like this, with the humans not winning a simple out right victory — moral or otherwise. Overall, a fun light read.
This book follows on from Live Free or Die. I like the approach of this book, as it follows a couple of relatively normal people trying to get by, and how the main protagonist from the last book’s actions affect them. Its an engaging read, while still progressing the overall arc of the series. I really enjoyed it.
This book is useful. When the Earth is invaded by evil aliens intent on stripping us of our heavy metals, I now know how to fight back using just Maple Syrup and a Death Star I just happen to have hanging around. That’s education right there. This book is delightfully not sexist compared with some of Ringo’s other books, which makes me happy. It does lack strong female characters, but at least they’re not being used for titillation (refer to Cally’s War for an example of how this isn’t always true). I enjoyed this book.
