Problems, problems, problems! All Mike Harmon ever wanted to be was a SEAL. But after problems in the teams, college student was a decent second best. However, trouble seemed to follow him where he went. Now, after having angered every terrorist on Earth and at least five governments, buying a farm in a third world country was looking pretty good. Of course, nothing was ever simple. With Chechen terrorists knocking on the door and tenant farmers with a truly Byzantine culture, the question was whether he could drag the keldara into the 21st century before the Chechen put them back in the 6th. Kildar answers the question: Where would an international security specialist and former SEAL choose to retire-if he's going to buy the farm, it should be one with beautiful women and the best beer in the world. Valhalla on Earth complete with Vikings.… (més)

The other night I wanted a testosterone fantasy and Kildar was what I chose to re-read.

Ringo's books are interesting, in a macho military SF kind of way. This book actually is much more personal than some of his other books.

It chronicles the further adventures of Mike from Ghost. I don't generally recommend Ghost unless you are very comfortable with BSDM. If you don't know what that means, you aren't comfortable with it.

Kildar is a sequal and really the first book in a new series, though it shares a few characters. Mike, now rich for killing terrorists in previous books, stumbles upon a valley in Georgia - the country not the state - that has a clan of celtic warriors looking for a leader. Which he turns out to be.

It is still pornographic, just not as much porn as Ghost. So if explicit sex bothers you stay away. But it has all the hallmarks of male fantasy. Super soilder SEAL. Now super rich. Hookers with a heart of gold and one of coal. A harem of teenage virgins. Ancient warrior races.

So in a sense it is fun.

It is also boring in places where the author got excited telling you about highland games, or the cool gadget the military should use but doesn't.

It also ends in the middle. Seems he got to a page count and went "Oh, need to through in a battle so I can end the book". Insert really tiny fight - for Ringo books - and boom, done.

Overall fun, but not for everyone. ( )

Not bad, but I probably won't read the rest of the series. And I could have done without the NSFW scenes ( or at least have them happen "off-screen") but that's just me. Maybe I've just been spoiled by his Posleen War/Vorpal Blade/Wolf Squadron books. ( )

This book is porn. Pure, un-adulterated porn. It's like John Ringo read his own book [b:Ghost|239420|Ghost (Paladin of Shadows, #1)|John Ringo|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1388431416s/239420.jpg|1027423], and decided to write some fan fic about his special forces character and a bunch of hot bondage girls getting it on.

Not that there's anything wrong with that. I mean Ghost was pretty close to being porn too, so I kind of expected it, seeing as this book is the sequel. But, this book really has no story. It's just a created scenario for porn. Written like its some bad fanfic. Because, the writing in this book is just bad. So bad.

I really should re-read Ghost. Because, I loved that book. I should go back and see if Ringo is just a bad writer, or I just love porn so much that I can forgive the bad writing if there's enough hot naked chicks involved. Mmmmmm, hot naked chicks. ( )

A sequel to Ghost in which Mike Harmon, ex-SEAL laying low from Middle Eastern terrorists in the backwoods of Georgia (the country not the state), winds up buying a sort of feudal estate and setting up his own army and harem. Rather a fun techno-thriller but be warned it is probably the most action-less action adventure I have ever seen. It reminds me of the caper movies like Topkapi or Ocean’s Eleven where the setup gets more emphasis than the actual heist. Here the real interest is in the mechanics of getting the infrastructure running, training the militia, etc. Very little of the rough sex present in the first novel. ( )
