The Fight for the Galaxy is On!Earth's Posleen invasion is contained-at a huge cost in human blood and anguish. Now hard-nosed commander Mike O'Neal discovers that he's saved our world only to unwittingly lead humanity into slavery. It's another twist of the knife in the human back courtesy of those wannabe Masters of the Universe, the Darhel. But the Darhel are about to experience an even nastier revelation of their own. For there are other universes-universes with occupants so ravenous they make the Posleen horde seem like a Boy Scout troop. Occupants with the mind-bending power to open a door between realities-and invade a certain double-spiral galaxy like the plague! As war turns to rout and slaughter, the Darhel have no choice but to beg the one man who hates them more than anything to lead the counter-attack. General O'Neal, welcome to your destiny. The galaxy that betrayed you is now depending on you for salvation!At the publisher's request, this title is sold without DRM (Digital Rights Management).
Fans of the popular Legacy of the Aldenata series (A Hymn Before Battle, etc.) will rejoice as Ringo brings together characters and plot threads from his solo novels and collaborations. After the Earth is invaded by the voracious Posleen, Lt. Gen. Michael O'Neal discovers evidence that the Galactic Confederation's Darhel leaders have been manipulating humanity to keep them from subverting the galactic order. Before O'Neal can take action, a new and totally unexpected threat, the Hedren, disrupt the Darhel sabotage. With the Confederation's capital in danger of falling to the Hedren, O'Neal must organize a counterattack despite widespread corruption and apathy in Earth's military. Some potential repercussions from prior events are resolved a bit too easily, but Ringo's lively action scenes and thorough knowledge of military subculture dynamics make enjoyable reading.
50 years only proves that the more things change, the more they remain the same - thankfully.
Fast paced and well crafted as always. Reintroduction to the full caste of characters is like walking into a surprise party of your all old friends.
Ringo has not lost his touch. I remember a while back, in the dedication of one of his books, Mr. John said (to the barflies or some other pesky group of fans), "Here. Now lemme alone!" Well, sir, now it's my turn: More! More! More!
