Less funny, more, "Build to win," But that's a style I like a lot, so it works for me. ( )

The science in the science fiction was less present and less interesting than the first book, and the character focus was different. If you love American exceptionalism taken to a galactic scale, here is a book you can read. Also space battles pew pew. ( )

I found this book at least as enjoyable as the first one. It is true that it takes a good chunk of the book before any real action is taking place but the parts of the story that leads up to that point is still quite enjoyable. I generally do not like sequels which more or less takes the focus away from the main character. For major parts Citadel this is done but it works reasonably well.

The book deals a lot with the science and logistics of building the massive battle stations, of which Troy is the first and though, sometimes, this can be quite boring in this book it is fun read. You get a glimpse of the alien politics behind the scenes as well. To be honest, I could have been without those parts.

However once the action starts it is literally “Damned the torpedoes, full speed ahead”. I’ve already started to read the third one in the series. ( )

The second in the Troy Rising series. Earth is still under attack by the alien Rangora, but now Earth's enemies the Glatun are also under attack leaving Earth to stand alone. Luckily the aliens under estimate our creativity, tenacity and courage. What's not to like in a good old fashioned Earth vs. Aliens space opera? Most of the story is told from the point of view of a new character, but that keeps the story from getting stale. ( )

Imagine if Steve Jobs and Donald Trump's DNA were combined the child of thhat experiment would be John Ringo's main character in this story. This is continuing story of a trillionaire capitalist saves the planet from a host evil aliens. The story pokes fun at NASA, the current international climate, and political situation. Lots of fun and lots of explosions. A fun novel for a slow day. ( )
