Description:

SUMMARY: The fight to free the Earth from alien domination began in Live Free or Die, and continued in Citadel. Now Tyler Vernon, and his troops aboard the gigantic battle station Troy, face the ultimate battle with the forces of galactic tyranny. And the very survival of the Earth and its people is not all that is at stake. The galaxy itself must choose to live free or die—and if the tyrants win, darkness will fall across the galaxy for millennia to come. “[Ringo’s SF is] peopled with three-dimensional characters and spiced with personal drama as well as tactical finesse.” —Library Journal “. . . explosive. . . . Fans of strong military SF will appreciate Ringo’s lively narrative and flavorful characters.” —Publishers Weekly “The interstellar skullduggery is thick, and the final action sequence . . . is practically impossible not to read in one sitting . . . exceedingly impressive . . . executed with skill, verve, and wit.” —Booklist “Ringo provides a textbook example of how a novel in the military SF subgenre should be written. . . . Crackerjack storytelling.” —Starlog
