"The Posleen are coming and the models all say the same thing: Without the Panama Canal, the US is doomed to starvation and defeat. Despite being overstretched preparing to defend the US, the military sends everything it has left: A handful of advanced Armored Combat Suits, rejuvenated veterans from the many decades that Panama was a virtual colony and three antiquated warships. Other than that, the Panamanians are on their own against the swarming alien horde. Replete with detailed imagery of the landscape, characters and politics that have made the jungle-infested peninsula a Shangri-La for so many over the years, Yellow Eyes is a hard-hitting look at facing overwhelming odds with not much more than wits and guts. Fortunately, the Panamanians, and the many veterans that think of it as a second home, have plenty of both."--BOOK JACKET.… (més)

Very good military story-telling, but the preachiness was a bit hard to take. ( )

This book is pretty preachy (if you're not a republican your wrong and you're what's wrong with the universe), and long. The story also centers around haunted warships, which is a bit of a leap for this series. On the other hand, its a good read if you can put up with those bits. Overall ok, but not the best in the series.

Greed, and evil.....an excellent read. The posleen are attacking panama which has to be held for the US to be fed. Corruption and the Darheel are conspiring toimpossible and reduce the US to a more manageable population only the insane Cruiser Des Moine and some strong American commanders can make it work. Difficult book to put down. ( )

Ringo and Kratman cooperate to create an almost seamless whole. This is Ringo at his brutal, martial best, with only a smidgen of the sexual encounters that pervade his Kildar series. Nor does the book drown in technical detail (a complaint for some regarding Von Neumann's War). There's still a fair amount of political polemic - the State Department & EU aren't much loved - but under the circumstances, (being sold out wholesale & then eaten is fairly drastic, after all), a bit of polemic is forgivable, and doesn't distract too much.

If you're squeamish about violence, you may not like it. And if you're looking for major character development, you're in the wrong spot. Yes, there is some growth & change, but it's generally not the internal type. This is war. Good guys die - and get eaten. They get raped, blown up, mangled, and deprived of wives, husbands, and children, sometimes by their own people.

The jungle scenes are some of the best in the book. Daisy and Sally are wonderful, as well. Expanding on minor notes of sympathy in earlier books, the Posleen are not a faceless, immoral enemy, here, and I'm looking forward to seeing what happens should the two species ever decide to join forces against the Darhel.

Rather political; More gore -- maybe not but more attempts to make you empathize with the aliens, so when they die it feels more gory
